Welcome

Mindscape team truly believes that there is an infinite potential inherent in each child and is unique to him/her.

Millions of students unfortunately suffer every year, as they are unaware of this inherent potential and have very little idea about what to do next. As we all know, there are certain careers which are preferred over the others, as they are considered to be more lucrative, successful and respectful in the society.

As a result, the students appearing for entrance exams are found to be under immense pressure. Some students also sit for many entrances knowing little about how well it fits in their overall life/career plan. Other regular/distant courses have high qualifying marks where students who have scored moderate marks get left behind, resulting in opting for the easily available degree courses; ultimately ends up struggling to manage or even complete the course for which they have joined. Those who manage to diplomate the graduate course are again at crossroads when they join for work. They become dissatisfied and unhappy. All this arises due to wrong and inefficient career planning. That is why Mindscape is determined to help students to make the right choices by helping them discover their inherent abilities (Aptitude combination).

Mindscape uses a comprehensive test (online as well as offline) which is divided into Three sections– an Aptitude test, a Personality test, and an Interest test. On the completion of which, a personalized report is generated by a trained Psychologist, showing the student’s Aptitude, Personality and Interests areas, which is self explanatory and suggests best suited careers/courses for him/her. The students and parents are given guidance on which subjects to choose and what course to take up. The career orientation and guidance helps both the child and parents to get an insight on the best fit careers based on the child’s aptitude

  • Issues in Career Selection & Planning

    The importance of aptitude for career selection and career planning has been ignored since a long time. During the earlier days as well as the present times, there are many ways that students follow to choose a stream. *Sometimes as per parent’s suggestions or decision, sometimes because their friends have chosen that subject, sometimes they make their own choice based on the limited information they have. *Then there are the two types of students when it comes to making decisions on career selection: the ones who follow their passion and the others who join the rat race of engineering/medicine and for the rest there is commerce/arts. None of these are the right way.

    As career planning is an ever-changing and evolving process and this feeling of being unsure –“What to do with my life?” or The indecisiveness- “whether to study or work?” can be traumatic. Thus, for finding your career passion, career direction or developing strategy for transition from current study/job to next, you need to take it slowly and easily. Whether you are a student searching for the right higher education program or your first job, one of your primary goals should be to empower yourself. For empowering yourself and setting realistic goals and objectives, you must first free yourself from the three main barriers:

    1. Family Pressure: Expectation to join the family business, suggestion to join a career that they feel is right for you, avoid certain careers that they feel is below your status level and so on.
    2. Personal Barriers: This has more to do with one’s Attitude towards life in general, such as laziness, lack of motivation, want to enjoy life and so on. All of these can bring one to a dead end when it comes to succeeding in life, be it personally or professionally.
    3. Peer Pressure: often thoughts such as- My friends are doing it, so I should too! …My friends are doing it so why can’t I? can induce fear of not being in the rat race.

    Removal of these barriers gives you a better idea of your aptitudes, attitudes and interests as they relate to possible career choices and help you to achieve your career goal.

  • Career Planning Steps

    While career planning and career decision-making is a very important aspect in your life, the pressure you put on yourself should not stop you from making decisions or choices that are important to you. Here are some simple steps on short and long term career planning:

    Short Term Career Planning:

    Short term planning ranges from this year to the next few years. For this purpose, Self-Assessment Tests are designed to give you a better idea of your abilities, attitudes and interests as they relate to possible career choices. These tests include:

  • Specialities

    Many a time students have asked, ‘Why taking an aptitude test is so important before choosing a stream in class XI’?  The answer is actually quite simple. In order to be successful in anything, we need to first make plans for it. Similarly, to be successful in our chosen career, the subjects you choose after class 10th become the foundation stones of your career on which you build your career brick by brick. The best way to choose a particular stream is to take an aptitude test.

  • Benefits

    1.Comparing and Choosing the Right Career: A student may be good and get high grades in different subjects but since he can focus his career only on one, it becomes difficult for a student to decide upon one area of interest. An aptitude test will compare his performance in different areas and provide a profile of his skills, abilities, strengths and weakness which is very important in deciding a career.

     

     

    2.Report of future academic achievement: Aptitude tests helps students to assess and identify their inherent abilities, interests, personality and which of these skills and abilities are needed for various careers. Once students understand their strong and weak subjects, they can work towards improving the weak subjects.

     

     

    3.Improving Educational Opportunities: Once the latent talents of students is identified, it will help them know, understand and focus more on their chosen subjects  that match their aptitude test results and make a successful career in that field. When that stream has been identified, the search for the best colleges that offer that course becomes easier.

     

     

     

    4.Guidance for both parents and students: Unlike in the earlier days, students now are found to be far more anxious. Their feet are on two boats: What to choose as their career and what they are capable of doing. Thus anxiety and stress is caused by the thoughts of what to do in their life and if they are capable of living up to the present day competitive standards. Aptitude tests provide the parents with a realistic picture of their child’s academic performance and an understanding of their strengths and weaknesses and a much needed relief to the students on knowing their aptitude and capabilities.

     

     

    5.Better Insight: All professions require certain abilities and skills, since these tests are designed to help students to identify, know and understand what is required out of them to be successful in that particular field.
