He can concentrate on subjects he likes. Also, The CBSE plans to offer an aptitude test for classes IX and X from 2010.The first test will be available by February 2010. By the time a student reaches Class XI, he/she would have undertaken the aptitude test twice once at the end of class IX and then at the end of class X.
