More than only reading, writing, and math are part of education. One of the most significant investments anyone can make, it opens the door to a prosperous life. We first encounter formal education in school, where we come to understand that these years serve as the foundation for education and are crucial in transforming young people into wonderful citizens and human beings. Young talent should be identified and fostered in schools. Unfortunately, the majority of schools in the area do not offer pupils the necessary academic supervision, and the majority lack talent specialists who can help talented students get into top institutions. Because of this, there are numerous counseling organizations including DCC, that support students in choosing their future choice.
At DCC, we assist students in identifying their professional path from a young age. We actively involve students in the learning process, assisting them in acquiring the knowledge, abilities, and attitudes necessary to successfully examine their own lives, investigate and assess a wide range of educational and employment opportunities, and formulate logical and well-researched goals for the future. In order to make the academic CV of the students appealing to the universities they hope to apply to, we also assist in building it.
We encourage students in grades 8 and up to thoroughly explore who they are, what they desire, and how they might achieve those goals. The academically integrated curriculum is driven by these questions, which give it relevance, rigor, and a focus on relationships. This inspires pupils to think about leading independent, fruitful lives beyond high school, college, or other post-secondary education.
We provide psychometric personality and aptitude tests to students, position them in volunteer programs, send them to camps, support their career research, and assist them in their university search. After completing their IGCSEs, students who follow the British curriculum have the option of enrolling in UK universities. Having said that, in order to attend a top university in the UK, a student must complete a number of requirements, including a gap year, work experience, a demonstration of their commitment to humanitarian causes, and a stellar set of academic results.
Don’t wait till you graduate from high school; start right away. Parents should also read this because they are responsible for ensuring that their children reach high standards and attend the finest institutions in order to acquire the best opportunities in their careers. Isn’t having a successful profession the dream of every parent?
Advice on Preparing High School Students for University
- Prior to entering a university, be prepared to read a lot.
- Learn time management skills by using a calendar and making time management plans. While you are still in high school, start learning time management skills. Mark your calendar with all exam and paper due dates.
- The development of time management skills is one of the largest changes between high school and university; students must learn to balance their social and academic lives.
- Being tempted to slack off could be very tempting, so be prepared to control yourself. Reread everything you learned throughout the week, and give yourself plenty of time to get ready for quizzes and exams.
- Learn to read by outlining and summarising your reading.
- Take notes in class and practice.
- Join volunteer and community service initiatives.
- Write numerous essays on a variety of topics since you never know which one will land you the scholarship.
- Utilize the high school revision opportunities.
- Before making a final decision about going to college, consider the aspects of an institution that are most important to you (climate, environment, degrees offered, size, location, etc.). Go see them if you can.
- Take a psychometric career guidance assessment.
- Finally, you need to carefully consider your future because time is of the essence and once gone, it cannot be recovered. You don’t want to restart your bachelor’s program because you made a poor decision initially.
Our tutors can assist students in exploring occupations, degree programs, and colleges and institutions during their time in high school. Students can take aptitude tests and interest inventories to choose the degree or vocation that best suits their interests and skills.
