Hello what is mean by study centre code?. What is the study centre code of fiitjee?.

ojaswiyolo Student Expert 24th Jul, 2020

Hello Kakunuri

As far as I remember my days in Aakash, the study centre is the number/code given to the building of Aakash (in my case) or FIITJEE (in your case) in which you are studying.  Usually they used to tell us the study centre code beforegiving the centre exams or you can find our study centre code at https://www.fiitjee.com/AITSCentres

On our Career Goal wt is *decision & *way

Disha Arora 6th Jul, 2020

Dear Student,

One of the most difficult choices you need to make is a career choice and unfortunately our schools are not equipped to find out what each student is really good at and how to guide them. So we adopt the safest method which is, choosing professions that give the students a chance at success in life.  The better way is find out what you really like to do or talent and then hunt for the courses that help build on this talent. Here are some tips to find out:

  • Do you have any particular talent that can become a profession?

  • What are you really passionate about or really like to do?

  • Are you willing to work hard to pursue your dreams?

  • If you are unable to answer the above with clarity then what you can do is find out your strengths by doing the Myers Briggs Personality Test.  It can be done at a Career Counseling Centers.

Once you find out your strengths than choose a career that really suits and usually once they do the test, they can make suggestions. List of professions you  can get into:

Some examples of Professions: Art & Design, Engineering & Technology, Medical, Paramedical,  Finance & Accounts,  Government Service & Services, Hospitality, Humanities & Liberal Arts, IT & Related, Graduate professions like Banking, Legal & Secretarial, Management, Media & Communications, Offbeat like Sports Coaches, DJ, Trainer, Performing Arts, Physical Sciences, Environmental & Biological Sciences, Transportation and Logistics, Freelancers (Work from Home)

So understand who you are, then read about the professions you like and then finally choose the profession and how to study for it.

Good Luck

What is the Highest level of study for a Neurosurgeon?

Ketaki Dhotre Student Expert 19th Jun, 2020

Dear,

It takes 4.5 years of study plus one year of internship to complete the MBBS degree. Following MBBS, there are two options. One is doing a postgraduate degree, ie an MS in General Surgery. An MS takes 3 years to complete. After finishing MS, you will need to do an MCh degree in Neurosurgery. MCh is basically super-speciality. It takes 3 years to finish the MCh. So it takes 5.5 + 3 + 3 years minimum to be qualified to practise neurosurgery. Needless to say, becoming a neurosurgeon in India takes a tremendous amount of dedication and hard work. Its not just many years of training, it is also difficult to get into a good college for MBBS, and even more to secure a MS seat.

Hope this helps.
