Many college students lack ideas on which course to study in the higher education institution after leaving high school. This is because most of the students are not oriented on the right career to follow during their school life.
Lack of appropriate orientation during admission makes it very difficult for students who are confused to be guided, as a result, most of them turn to follow what their friends and relatives are studying.
So they do not request or seek the assistance of counsellors when they have difficulties or problems rather they school because they want to accomplish parent’s desires, market demands, assure social life, or simply because of peer influence, therefore, the study seeks out to investigate the student’s perception on the effectiveness of guidance and counselling services in a secondary school within Kumba I Municipality.
