Write CBSE board exam for exposure


Dear Sir,

My nephew is studying in Std 10. Should he take the Board exam or class exam for Std Xth?


Dear Sultan,

CBSE is planning to do away with the Std X Board exam, and make it a continuous assessment, which is actually a very progressive step towards correct evaluation of the true worth of the student.  If there is a Board exam next year, let him take it up, because it will prepare him to face challenges and stress. Eventually it is his performance in the 12th Boards and the entrance exams that will determine his admission to degree colleges.

Dear Sir,

I have written my XII Board  exams. My combination is PCMS. For the past year I have been making plans to shift to Commerce after my 12th. I want to do my CA and then do an MBA from IIM. I know that CA is very difficult. My parents are telling me that CA is a very tough course and I being a Science student will not be able to do it. But I am adamant. Please tell me if my decision of shifting from Science to Commerce is worth it.


Dear Rahul,

There is nothing to show that a Science student cannot become a CA. If you have a good mathe-logical mind, like accounting and numbers, and are willing to study hard, you can definitely become a CA.  It would have been nice if you had registered for the CPT (Common Proficiency Test) of CA, for which eligibility is Std X.  

It would have given you two years to prepare for the CPT.  Now also you can take up a degree course of your choice, and appear for the CPT (ref: www.icai.org).  If you clear the CPT in the first attempt, you know that you have the capability of completing your CA, and you can put in all your efforts in that direction.  

If for some reason you are not able to clear CPT, then you continue with your studies and prepare well and in advance for the CAT which will get you admission in IIMs.
Dear Sir,

I am in Std X. I want to pursue engineering in a reputed college. I am interested in aerospace engineering but does it have scope ? And what is the difference between aeronautics and aerospace ? Will electronics engineering have more job opportunities than in aerospace?


Dear Akshatha,

The aeronautical industry requires engineers from various streams.  Since aero engineering is available only in a few prestigious institutions, you can even consider a degree in electronics, and then either do a PG in aerospace engineering, or join the aero industry to gain experience.  

Electronics being a very basic stream, the job opportunities are wider, and you can narrow down to any field of your choice later.  While aeronautics deals with planes, aerospace deals with space travel, rockets, satellites etc.
