New Delhi- 'A Better Way to College' (abetterwaytocollege.com), a collaborative effort of educators, researchers, and industry experts committed to reimagining the landscape of higher education, has joined hands with Education World India to introduce an exciting Talent Search program for students aged 14 to 18. This initiative promises to open doors to international scholarships and fresh avenues for pursuing education and career opportunities in the United States.
Sheila Bauer, CEO of 'A Better Way to College,' introduced the Talent Search in New Delhi.
This Talent Search utilizes a cutting-edge assessment meticulously crafted over years of research by Argus.AI. The assessment identifies both academic aptitude and personality traits that have demonstrated a strong correlation with success in higher education and future career prospects.
Building on the achievements of the AccessMCA program, which already provides Indian students with guaranteed admission to American colleges and universities, this Talent Search extends further benefits. Participating schools and students will have exclusive access to the assessment, receive insights from their results, and have the opportunity to earn international scholarships, invitations to special programs, and, in some cases, direct admission into colleges, both in the United States and India, thanks to a growing network of college and university partners.
The first All India Talent Search employing this innovative assessment tool is slated for April 2024 and will be open to all schools. AccessMCA Associate Schools may receive early invitations to join the search.
A Revolutionary Approach to Student Assessment
Traditional methods of evaluating student potential often lean heavily on memorization and rote learning. This fresh assessment approach takes a holistic perspective, focusing not only on academic aptitude but also on intrinsic personality traits that significantly influence a student's success in college and their subsequent careers.
Sheila Bauer, CEO of 'A Better Way to College,' expressed, "Our goal is to transform the way we understand and measure potential. We firmly believe that by comprehending a student's unique blend of academic ability and personality, institutions can provide a more customized educational experience, ultimately leading to greater student success and satisfaction."
