To understand where to go to learn after school, it is necessary to imagine further developments. Who you will be in a year after graduation, in 5 years, after 20. Of course, life will definitely make adjustments to this plan, but the General direction you will still have. Many schools engaged in vocational guidance of pupils of 10-11 classes, trying to allocate preferences. The basic choice lies between humanitarian and technical education, but this is a very common alternative, for example, journalism is different from the law almost as much as from mining, or applied mathematics.
In any case, it would be wrong to look for a school after graduation, based on exam scores and competition in universities. Practically, this means a degree for the sake of the diploma, not for the sake of a successful career. Therefore, the choice of Institute or College should begin long before exams. Visit the open days, which are regularly held educational institutions, read reviews of graduates and the labour market. Note that profession, for which demand is great at the moment, it is possible to be in the tail of the list by the time when you will receive a diploma.
It is possible to pass several tests on professional orientation, in order to understand what you want to do in the future. And listen to the advice of friends and relatives, but do not forget that to learn and to work be right for you, so do not blindly follow the family decision. Keep in mind that during the first year of study there is a real opportunity to change majors or faculty. Of course, this is not free, but at least you won't have to waste a year waiting for a new admission.
It may be that you selected in the result of school is in another city. It should not become a decisive factor, because nothing wrong in studying in a different city. At the same time more prestigious University located in a regional centre or in the capital, will give you much more chances of employment in the future.
Many graduates decide not to spend time on higher education, limited vocational. The reasons can vary: lack of funds, the desire to quickly begin to work, the fear of the complexity of the educational process. However, it should be borne in mind that some positions simply impossible to take without a diploma of higher education, and to earn money in College will not work due to the more strict regime, that is, of experience by graduation you will have. Consequently, the chance of finding a good job will be somewhat less.
