Global boundaries are disappearing rapidly. The world is emerging as one big community driven by open market economies and fully convertible currencies. Easy access to internet, increased foreign travel and heightened global awareness has opened up huge opportunities for students. However, the information overload and opportunity explosion is such that it frequently leads to more confusion than comprehension. Very often students develop preconceived notions about 'popular' courses, 'rated' institutions and 'conventional' subjects of study, without a thought to their potential, profile, financial implications, knowledge base, basic skill-sets and career prospects. Consequently, it spells doom for them when they find themselves in countries, institutions or courses that do not deliver what they wanted. Studying abroad is not merely about filling in application forms and sending them to universities one has heard of. It is a complex process involving an array of questions, issues and formalities that need to be looked into, completed and followed through.
GSS also have a wide range of services that make your application process simple, easy and hassle free. We are constantly adding new services to our profile to make your experience more fulfilling. Our other services include :
Choosing the right career from multiple streams, many options & directions is perhaps one of the biggest challenges
before most students today. We have to be realistic about the overall interest and capability within ourselves.
In order to help you plan and plot your career, it is essential that we understand not only your interest but also your aptitude, abilities and personality. We conduct these tests to help us know you better as well as for you to realize where your potential lies. The results of these tests are not a benchmark but an indicative which gives us a scientific base to start our counseling process.
We conduct psychometric tests for both students under the age of 18 years as well as adults. These are standard tests, free from biases and have been scientifically proven to be reliable & valid. The tests consist of multiple choice questions and are administered under exam conditions. They are strictly timed. We use a multi-dimensional assessment of personality; comprehensive interest schedule; and a battery of differential abilities which helps assess verbal, numerical, spatial, closure, clerical, reasoning, mechanical and psycho-motor abilities of the child.
The tests for above 18 years include a Personality based test which helps us to know a persona of a person: we have dimensions like leadership, innovative, mental ability, morality, tension and so on which will help us to know ourselves better and work on our strengths and weakness. Together the results help the counselors to do individualized career pathway planning.
