Q. I am a science graduate, I've done graduation this year, and I do not understand what to do whether I should go for M.Sc or should I prepare for
competitive exams, like SSC or banking? Please advice.

Ans. If you are interested in seeking a job and no longer want to study further, you can start preparing for competitive examinations in the above sectors. In the banking sector an MBA is of much value in getting jobs and rising in the ladder. An M.Sc will help only if you want to pursue a career in the specific discipline in either research or teaching or in industry. First clear your career goals before you take a decision. The choice depends upon your aims and objectives.


Q. I'm preparing for JEE. I'm not good in my studies. I'm anxious because of my own expectations. I could not meet them. I've failed, whatever happened due to my overconfidence. I realised this and since then, I have been under confident. Everyone says that. Whenever I decide for a task, I'm scared to go for a challenge. I want to run out of it. In everything this happens. My companions are not good. I can say that probably, they don’t talk to me. Plus I got to know them commenting on me, being a hopeless case. I'm alone. But I don't think it can be a major problem. If they don't care of me, I don't bother too. I have always been bad in social skills. Never had anyone good person as a friend. If I did, then I never talked to them much. I stayed alone. I want to increase the hopes within me. So that I can do good. Also I'm addicted to self abuse. I want to stop that. I don’t want to share anything with anyone. I hope that you will help me out of this.

Ans. First of all, start thinking in a positive and an optimistic way. Think about yourself and your strengths and talents that you have. You may not have achieved much in formal education so far but that does not mean that you do not have talents. Search for them and polish them further. Secondly, be sure that engineering is your right choice for career. You ought to be good in mathematics and physics for engineering. If not choose another option. Each one is cut out for different careers as they possess different gifts given by God. Each one must search for them and build a life with it. Thirdly, search for good company as your friends. Friends should be such who will inspire you and are talented and confident. It is not good to be alone and stay alone as it leads to depressive tendencies. Your bad habits will go once you stay in good company. A few sessions of counselling will help you understand yourself better and set your priorities right. Set a few goals for self improvement and start working on them.


Q. My state of mind is depressed since two years. Whatever I wanted I did not get. I did not want too much but that too was not going for me. What should I do? I do not want to live and feel like suicide. Nobody understands me. My parents have no time for me. They are working or else fighting with themselves. I do not tell them anything about my life. I am studying well and doing my college. But I have no one to share and no girl friend too. I liked a girl but she refused me. Do I need help and treatment?


Ans. This is a serious condition and I would advise you to seek help immediately. Two years is a very long time to sit over a problem. It saps your energy, lowers down your day to day functioning, hampers your social communication and friendships, it makes you lonelier than you already are, and makes life seem hopeless and meaningless. It drives out the pleasures of life totally. In fact at this age you should be bubbling with energy and ideas looking forward to building a great career. You should be in the company of friends and enjoying your free time. Just the reverse seems to be happening for you are suffering from a disease called depression. You should visit a psychologist for assessment of your state of mind and other personality factors. There are good/effective methods for treatment for depression through counselling and psychotherapy. If medicines are required the psychologist would make a referral to a psychiatrist.

Q. M very much tensioned about my relationship....i am in a relationship with a guy since 3 years n now m going mumbai for higher studies.. m doing mbbs. Recently i made frship with one guy who was in my class in 11 and 12 dat tym i never talked with him but now in fb he messaged me and i was very happy to lisent dat conincedently he also is going mumbai in the same college i am very happy for dat and we became friends now i think i like to talk to him but my relationship with the first guy with whom i m since 3 yr i dont want to continue and am not able to take decision.....and if i tell him he will b hurted dat also i will not able to handle.....and sometimes i thk i dont love him its just infatuation. N i lyk to talk to my new and i think he also likes me but this think how to tell any one what people will think about me....

Ans.  Oh dear this is a real dilemma for you. Just stay calm and do not take decisions right now. Decisions taken in haste may turn out to be wrong and you may regret them. So let things be as they are and do not make any new commitments. Also as you are going to Mumbai for higher studies you should be focused totally on studies and make the best use of your time there. You should be thinking about your course and your subjects and not your new friend. Your mind should not be full of boys and new boyfriends. Keep it casual and do not make it serious. There is enough time for you to make long term commitment. First make a good career and have sacrifice on your mind for your personal issues. That will be better. Career making is a sacrifice of many things which seem pleasant for the moment.


Q. Hi; I'm a student. And I need your help. I don't have confidence. This is a major problem because, in it bothers me in my daily routine and my studies too. I can't concentrate on anything due to my lack of confidence. I just want to go away from the task. I need to boost my skills too, and for that I need practice. But I question at the start of it, if I will be able to do it, or not. I'm getting a loser day by day, and it's just because I'm not sure of me. I want defeat my under confidence, but how?? Please guide me.

Ans. There seems to be a fair amount of anxiety in your mind. It would help to analyse the reasons of anxiety and the causes of low confidence. Have you failed in some test or does someone important always run you down? Find out from where the low confidence is coming. It could be possible that you indulge in negative thinking and have therefore a low self image and self esteem. Start thinking positively about yourself and change your attitudes towards your life and yourself. Also a little bit of physical exercise will go a long way in lifting your spirits. Stay in the company of happy and positive minded people and share their joys. You have not mentioned if you are doing well in studies or not and that is also an area to take care of. Focus your mind on your studies and put in your best efforts. You will soon see the results.


Q I have appeared for 12th boards this year in science stream (PCM) and I'm awaiting my results. I want to pursue engineering. I am good in mathematics. I want to opt for a branch which will include mathematics to a high extent. Which branch will be best for me? Please help me.


Ans. Many branches of engineering have a good amount of mathematics such as mechanical, electrical, electronics and also mining and civil engineering. You can opt for any one of these which appeal to you. You can also pursue pure mathematics with graduation and post graduation in mathematics. That is another option for you. It all depends on your long term goals and dreams.

Q. I have appeared my class 12th this year. I am from science stream (PCMB). I am confused about my career. I am interested in chemical engineering and in computer departments, but I am unable to choose my career according to the scope of given above. Please suggest me which course is best in above or suggest me if any course is there in any of the streams.

Ans. Both the branches of engineering you mention are great ones. You can opt for chemical engineering or even computer science. You should make a choice of both and see which one you get. Both have tremendous scope and there is nothing to worry about.


Q. I wanna know about the couses which hav gud opportunities in future.I have given cls 12 xams nd i am waiting for my results..my group was PCM. kindly guide me..

Ans. For science students there are ample opportunities in future. If you are interested in theoretical /academics then you could graduation, post graduation and doctoral degrees in any one subject of science such as mathematics or chemistry or physics. This would be a teaching and a research line of career and you should opt for it if it interests you. The other option is the applied side of science which is engineering. Here you could do graduation and then post graduation in engineering or then in the field of management. If you have the artistic element as well architecture can be a good branch too. An aptitude test will help. Please write to us if you need one. We offer it online as well.


Q. I have completed my graduation in BSc biotechnology from Nagpur university. I want to pursue MA psychology. I am very passionate about it. Even in my career counselling it was  evident that it's the right career path for me. Can u please guide me and tell me list of colleges which accept BSc graduate student. Most of colleges I tried applying, I am not eligible. They say BA degree is required. I am eligible for colleges in Nagpur university like Hislop, etc. But my parents are against me studying at Nagpur university because it's very infamous and bogged in controversies.

Ans. A few universities in South India such as Banglore might have opened their doors for aspirants like you. Such a switch over is generally not allowed anywhere in the world (except Nagpur) as the knowledge is not through and is half baked. Just doing an MA is Psychology does not make you eligible to practice or to teach. Many students are still doing it though and searching for placements mostly in schools. To become a practising psychologist you need at least seven years of study of psychology and also two years internship along with it.


Q. As u guided me for opting additional pshycology I searched at university site and I found that ambedkar college and hislop college provide this course but when I went and asked they said they don't provide infact there is nothing as such after completing your graduation you can opt for MA. Mam will u please tell me what should I do next.

Ans. Yes, they have done away with the BA additional degree and have started taking admissions directly to MA Psychology. Even IGNOU is allowing students to pursue MA psychology after any graduation. So it becomes easier for you.

Q. I am 24yr old girl.I did MSC in biochemistry in 2013 but I am jobless.recently I lost my mom.I am going through a very tough time.not even succeeding in competitive exams.my father's financial condition is not good.I am not getting any job although I am giving so many interviews.


Ans. if you can open your mind to any type of job anywhere you might get one. If you are doing a specific search for areas in your field of education you might not get it easily. If you are financially needy take any job available in the market. Many of us work in odd jobs for many years when times are tough and then we cannot be choosy at all. Slowly as you get into the job circuit you will meet different types of people and your network will help you get connected to the right type of people. It is always like that. Life is a long haul.

“Do not follow the wrong trend”- 10 May 2015.

Q. I am a girl of 23 yrs of age. I am BE holder and have been preparing for state PSCs and very good in studies. I have been attending the tuitions for the same. Recently I met a guy there not more than a month ago and have developed feelings for him. He is an intelligent, understanding, caring and sensitive guy and so I used to discuss study stuffs with him, which my mom disliked. I don’t know why I’ve fallen for him which was few days before disclosed to my mom due to which she is deeply hurt. She spends sleepless nights. My feelings for the guy is really pure and can’t even imagine of hurting my mom neither I do want to breakup from the guy. Please tell me what to do?

Ans. This is always a dilemma. You hurt your parents when you do not obey them. It is okay to have friends in college but it is another thing to get involved which becomes an emotional thing then. I would suggest you go slow on your feelings, withdraw a little from him and focus on your exams. This will help you concentrate. Checking the flow of feelings is a must otherwise they become intense. Tell your mother and assure her that you will never hurt her and will keep her informed about your life. Tell her you will not anything stupid and have always been a good girl. Let some time pass. Time will tell the truth. Be patient.


Q. I heard about you by one of my friend. She told me that you are a very good counsellor. So madam I need your advice. I passed my 12th std this year. My aim is to become an IAS officer. So madam the institute I’m going for studying IAS, the head sir over there told me to do B.A. And I also think that is good. But many of the people say that don’t go for B.A. Now I am totally confused. I want to do B.A as it will save my time and also help in the career I want to pursue. But I take my steps back as people told me that B.A is not good and so on... So please help me as to what should I do. Should I what I think or go as people say? Please madam help me. Will be waiting for your reply.

Ans. In fact it is a good idea to do B.A and prepare for the exams properly and seriously. People who are pursuing UPSC positions after doing professional degree courses like engineering and medicine have set a wrong trend for others. There is actually no role of a engineer or doctor in the UPSC posts. Why should one study one course and aspire for another job is something which needs investigation. It perhaps speaks of people’s insecurities and /or their uncertain minds of not planning their careers properly with thought. It is a waste of a seat of another deserving candidate in medical colleges and engineering colleges. If you are determined and confident of your talents and abilities please go ahead with all seriousness. It is a good choice. Prepare thoroughly for your exams and you will sail through. Make an assessment of your personality too besides your logical reasoning ability and English language.

Q. I’m 18 yr old girl. I have just appeared for my 12th boards exams. I'm from science stream(PCM). I’ am very much confused about my career. As I want to do MBA course further, so I’m confused that what stream should I choose for my graduation. My mother is suggesting me to do B.Sc. But I’m thinking to do BBA or B.com so that it can be a big help for me for doing MBA afterwards, because both the courses belongs to commerce stream. I’m very much confused about both science and commerce stream. Please suggest me what should I go with. And is there any scope further if I opt for commerce stream, and if I choose commerce stream, would it be difficult for me, as I’m a science student? Please help me out for this.


Ans. MBA is open to all categories of graduates whether you are from science, arts or commerce. The choice depends upon your long term goals. If you are interested in accounts and commerce then B.Com with an MBA in finance is a good career line. If you are interested in just management then a BBA and then MBA will be good. If you like science it may be helpful to get jobs in related industries if you do B.Sc and then MBA. It depends upon your likes and interests and your goals. An aptitude test with career guidance will be helpful for you.
