Did you know that 72% of 8th graders are already creating their profiles for college admissions? Sounds alarming right? But that is the reality with colleges taking a closer look at a child’s profile from Grade 8 onwards.
How can you ensure that your child gets his or her dream college convert in such a competitive era?
By adopting a focused profile building approach to incorporate academic and non-academic elements.
Why is a Diverse Profile important?
Before we even get there, let us first understand how the current scenario is like during university applications:
Academics: A Dead-end Zone
Scoring good grades is no longer the panacea to get into brand colleges anymore. With Board exam percentages touching 100% cut off rates for courses like B.Com., there is very little less to one’s imagination when it comes to academics.
Modern Education: Holistic Profile is KEY!
Unlike the time when just marks were looked at to secure admissions, universities today look at a range of activities in their applicants’ profiles. This includes:
- Co-curricular and extra-curricular achievements
- Leadership qualities
- Volunteer work
- Demonstrated interest towards a discipline, to name a few.
The above two factors in themselves are enough proof that high school students need to have a stronger and more diverse profile to get into that coveted college be it in India or abroad.
