Mumbai, June 15, 2020: NSDL e-Governance Infrastructure Ltd., one of India’s leading education financing facilitators and e-Governance solutions provider, has launched Vidyasaarathi Career Tests to help students across age groups choose the career best suited for their future.
There are three different career tests that are hosted on NSDL e-Governance’s Vidyasaarathi portal – Aptitude Test, Personality Test, and Interest Test. The online tests are designed in a way to gauge the strengths and weaknesses of the individual and then provide them with insights that will help them make a suitable career choice. To provide more detailed and reliable insights, the age groups for these tests have been categorized into three groups – ‘6-11 years’, ‘12-17 years’ and ‘18 years & above’.
NSDL e-Governance Infrastructure Ltd.’s MD and CEO, Mr. Gagan Rai said, “We have developed the three tests keeping in mind the needs of our students. The initiative is to help students find their interests and aptitude, match it to their personality type and help them choose a career path of their choice. COVID-19 has extensively impacted the student community and these tests will address a lot of doubts that the students have with respect to their career decisions in these uncertain times.”
An aptitude test measures the aptitude or talent of an individual to identify the job befitting their skillset. This test is popular in the student and counseling community as it helps a student in identifying their objective skills and sets the first filter in the pool of career opportunities.
The personality test is a popular yet unique assessment as it evaluates the needs and wants of the applicant from the surroundings to map the personality into four temperaments – Artisans, Guardians, Idealists, and Rationals.
Interest tests will ask students to rank various activities as per their rate of interest and identify them as realists, thinkers, creators, helpers, persuaders, and organizers.
The tests are designed with simplicity for easy comprehension. Each test will cost Rs. 299 to applicants and will help in narrowing down fields by identifying vital traits that an applicant possesses.
Furthermore, on the Vidyasaarathi portal students can also apply for scholarships that will financially support their choice of career. All the required information is available on www.vidyasaarathi.co.in
