Intermediate students were advised on careers in electric engineering, tourism, aviation, architecture, mass communication and accountancy during a counselling seminar on Saturday.

At least 800 students from various campuses of Superior College attended the seminar organised by the college.

Hishamul Hassan, a professor at Superior College, said students needed to start planning for their futures as early as possible. The professor said students could secure a bright future if they kept five factors in mind. These, he said, were a positive attitude, systematic thinking, a clear goal, responsible behaviour and a strong belief in oneself and God.

Lahore Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education chairman Prof Akram Kashmiri said this year the board would announce the intermediate result ahead of schedule in July. He said technology was improving at a very quick pace and that most things were getting computerised. He said the board had also automated its catalogue.

Sumaira, a student, said the government should devote more resources to improving education facilities. She said the briefing had helped her learn about many emerging careers.

An awards ceremony was held after the seminar to honour more than 80 students for their performance in college examinations and in sports competitions.
