Dr. Bibhuti Narayan Mishra, Dr. Nutan Singh

Abstract :

 INTRODUCTION: The adjustment difficulties of school students have been an emerging issue. Many studies have proved that the

adjustment difficulties like appetite disturbance, concentration problems & depression are most evident in school going children
these days. To help school students in resolving their adjustment issues, we made efforts in the form of establishing a counseling
system to provide intervention to the students, so that their social and emotional problems did not interfere with their academic
performances, for the current study. We chose to examine the relationship between the college counseling experience and the
academic performance in a sample of school children aged 14 to 18years.
AIM & OBJECTIVE:
1. To assess the cause of poor academic performance of children.
2. To analyse the benefit of counselling on academic performance.
MATERIAL & METHODS:
The study was conducted in Department of Paediatrics, Government Medical College, Haldwani attached to Dr. Susheela Tiwari
Goverment hospital, Haldwani. The study was conducted during the period December 2015 to april 2017 by enrolling the
students through school visit & OPD, and progressive analysis of school performance based on annual report card pre & post
counseling.
RESULT:The study shows the statistical improvement in academic performance of the students after counseling. Marks obtained
by students before counseling were below 40% , 40–50% , 50–60% , 60– 70% and above 70% in 23%, 43%, 26%, 6%, 2%
respectively. After counseling the scores of students improved with 35% students scoring between 40–50% , 38% between 50–
60% , 20% between 60– 70% and 7 % scoring above 70%.
Where in pre counselling the number of students scoring below 40 % were 23% and 0 % in post counselling. The no. of students
scoring above 70% increased from 2 to 7 %. The result on academic performance post counseling is statistically significant
(P < 0.01) .
