The world has gone beyond JUST report cards with leading Universities of the world like Harvard, Princeton, Oxford and others looking for a focused profile while screening for undergraduate applications. Even within India, leading Universities like Ashoka, National Institutes of Fashion Technology, NALSAR, etc. look for a profile that is not just restricted to academics. In addition, 82% of the leading progressive schools of the country also recommend a profile ‘Beyond Marks’.
With growing competition among applicants in universities across India and abroad, leading universities across the globe have introduced innovative methods and unique requirements in their admission processes.
Univariety had recently conducted a survey asking top educators in India to share their views on the importance and need to go beyond academics today. Here are some notable shares:
Ms. Jyothy Ramachandran, Principal, Mahapragya Public School, Mumbai
“Life is not all about academics. In India, we all suffer from #BoardTopperitis. All those who have students studying in Class X or Class XII suffer from this. It is a specific condition where the student is troubled by a monster called Boards. We don’t let those students live in peace. We don’t allow them to be their own pure self. 400 times a second the student is reminded by “Oh you are in the Boards this year”. Unless we discover a cure for this, there is no respite for our students. Don’t we remember that naughty student who provided us with gags and bouts of laughter? Of course, we do, though he was no way near the topper category. Then why this hue and cry about Academics? I support in going BEYOND ACADEMICS for student success!”
Mr. Vikram Soni, Sr. Academic Counsellor, Amity University and a Career Coach
“In the process to go Beyond Academics, students need to understand and implement the 7Cs in life:
In order to enjoy becoming a good human being and achieving a successful life.”
