CBSE's aptitude test for Class IX, X students in Nov

What next - science, arts or commerce? The question haunts most of the Class X students as the write their final exam.

To help Classes IX and X students choose subjects for their senior secondary classes, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will conduct the fourth Students Global Aptitude Index (SGAI) assessment test in November. The SGAI will help students know their aptitude. Its questions will not be from the text books. They will only include psychological questions. The test is optional for students.

SGAI provides complete counselling through psychological measures to help students opt for different streams in Class XI according to their aptitude. "When students pass Class X, 95% of them want to opt for PCM (physics, chemistry and maths), and later pursue engineering. But, SGAI would help the students know the area in which their potential is higher," said Baldwin Academy principal Rajiv Ranjan, who was also the CBSE city coordinator for 2013 Board exams.

According to Ranjan, most of the parents also want their children to become engineers without knowing their preferences. "Activities such as SGAI would help students scientifically know about better career choices for them," he said.
