Choices made early in life on the basis of these ‘intrinsics’ will always result in true learning and success. The hard work involved in shaping a career based on the ‘intrinsics’ will never seem to be work or drudgery but as joyful effort resulting in true fulfillment of one’s life purpose.

Learners are most likely to show the beneficial effects of motivation when they are intrinsically motivated to engage in classroom activities. Intrinsically motivated learners tackle assigned tasks willingly and are eager to learn classroom material, more likely to process information in effective ways (e.g., by engaging in meaningful learning), and more likely to achieve at high levels in chosen professions.

The Aptitude Profili ng (AP) Tests have been designed by renowned psychologists, educationists, human resource professionals, career counselors and thinkers. They are based on some of the most widely accepted theories in psychology and education – Dr Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences, Dr William Marston’s Theory of Personality, Neil Fleming’s Learning Modalities Theory, Roger Sperry’s Nobel Prize winning theory of Brain Hemispheric Dominance, and several other path - breaking concepts and theories.

What sort of person are you?

To help you decide what to study in classes 10,11 and 12, it's a good idea to start asking yourself what sort of person you are:

• Think about what you're like at home, as well as in school - what skills have you developed outside school?
• Ask yourself what types of things you enjoy doing the most - for example, working things out and thinking them through, practical activities or artistic options like painting, drawing or performing music?
• Think about what you are most interested in: it could be languages, writing projects, helping people, being outdoors or designing things?

Choosing the subjects you need

If you know what career you want, choosing the right subjects can be critical. For example, if you are considering following an engineering & technology pathway you will need to select the Physics-Chemistry-Mathematics Core subjects.

Choosing the subjects you like and are good at

Nearly everyone performs better when they are doing something they enjoy and are good at. You should take this into account, but always keep in mind your preferred course or career when you leave school.

Interests and aptitude

You may already know what you hope to do after your XII. Although it may be too early to make final career decisions, you may have an idea of the broad area, which interests you, for example, clerical, active, social, practical, scientific or artistic for example. Some subjects will be more relevant to each area.
