Proforientation test for children from 15 years old

BRIEF SUMMARY

The career test was developed by British experts at Cambridge about 30 years ago. Its goal is to help students identify their true strengths, career preferences and choose the right A-Level / IB / Pre-U subjects to successfully enroll in the right university.

This is a unique test that analyzes students' responses to 300 questions and creates a profile of interests based on over 40 career areas. A special test algorithm helps to identify areas of interest of a teenager, assess his ability, concentration, spelling, speed of perception and processing of information and other skills that are important when choosing a profession and when applying for a job.

The test is updated annually to include the latest information and the most recent reference material on career paths (for example, the average salary of recent graduates in the UK).

Testing is conducted in English.

PURPOSE OF THE TEST

  • Identify the student's strengths and help choose a career direction.
  • Determine the set of core subjects to study in the final grades of school before entering the university.

WHAT DOES THE TEST GIVE?

The test aims to:

  • Provide students with information on the main key career areas that may be of interest to them.
  • Assess whether the student will be able to master the required qualifications and develop professional skills for a specific activity.
  • Provide a personalized AS / A or IB item selection scheme required for a variety of career paths.
  • Stimulate further research into potential careers with students to explore all possible development options.

INTERVIEW

We also offer two post-result in-depth interviews in Russian. They allow you to make the most of the test results and determine the most suitable career directions for the student.

Based on the results of the test and interview, the student receives a detailed report with visual results: from talent / aptitude for certain subjects to potential career paths.

The charts in the report show the relationship between the level of primary interests to various career areas and supporting interests and skills in five related areas that are important for work in each specific industry.

We have been friends with Paradise since 1996, and the last time we used their services was when we chose a school for our son in Spain. We stopped at the Sotogrande International School.

Time passed very quickly, and now it's time for Denis to prepare for entering universities. He chose the specialty "computer science". And by chance we again crossed paths with the Paradise Company just at the moment when they began to offer a new service - admission to universities around the world, including the most top and prestigious educational institutions.

Ksenia, a company specialist in London, made the best impression on us. Her professionalism and knowledge of the nuances and, it seems, all the pitfalls, bribed us.

With her light hand, we received offers from all the English universities we wanted, as well as from the University of Colorado, and even Penn State University, which was extremely difficult, but became possible thanks to a well-formed application.

In general, this is a very good university - it is called the Public Ivy League ("a state university, as good as the famous Ivy League universities"). And one of the universities - the famous University of Toronto - even offered Denis a scholarship. I can safely recommend Ksenia and Paradise to all applicants. You will be in good hands.

How to jump into the rapidly departing train of summer practices and necessary work experince? Now I can say - write to Ksenia in the "Paradise" company. Almost a month of research work in the team of the professor of biology can be said to have made my daughter's resume.

Often speaking about Personal Statement, which sometimes accounts for a good 40% of your success when entering universities, they forget to say that this is far from only about the correct structure and beauty of the syllable. The main thing is CONTENT. But in order to fill it with content, work needs to be started three years before that.

It's no secret that any “work experience” will not beautify your personal statement. Top British universities have little interest in how many elderly ladies you have brought across the road and what a wonderful experience working in the summer as a cashier in a store if you are applying to evolutionary biology.

In February of last year, feverishly wooling all kinds of sites and going over all the acquaintances in our minds, we in despair found that time wasted. Everything more or less decent was booked and dismantled already six months ago, or even earlier. I am very grateful to Natalia Strein, the founder of Paradise, for Ksenia Starostina, and Ksenia for her professionalism and talent to DO THE IMPOSSIBLE.

With the next offspring, prudently trying not to step on the same rake, work began in advance, which I advise everyone. Received a THOUGHTED PLAN, with all sorts of options, from the necessary books to participation in research. And this is despite the fact that the summer of 2020, due to COVID-19, is not the easiest one in terms of organizing anything.

Summary: I highly recommend Ksenia and Paradise. Five stars out of five. It is a must have! :)
