Dear Parent,
Congratulations!
Your child has performed exceptionally well in the ASSET
Talent Search. They are now part of a select group of
gifted students with access to academically advanced
programmes organised by ASSET and its partners.

Identifying your academically gifted child is a very
important part of the journey, but it is also just the start of
that journey. The ASSET Talent Search helps identify a
gifted student, but what next? This is a question most
parents, like yourself, have.

The ASSET team has been offering programmes for gifted
students since the last nine years and have delivered more
than 70 advanced level courses to academically-gifted
students across India and the UAE. As you browse through
this information booklet, you can read more about all the
programmes we offer.

By participating in gifted programmes, your child will go
through hours of rigorous course-work and build skills like
critical thinking, the ability to reflect, thinking deeply,
communicating your thoughts, problem solving, and will
also get introduced to values like collaboration, empathy
and so on. Further, when they start applying for colleges, it
will also demonstrate to college admission officials that
they can deal with pressure, are highly motivated, and not
afraid to learn from mistakes!

Your child has taken the first step by qualifying for these
programmes - the next step is yours! Schedule a call by
visiting our website www.assettalentsearch.com to receive
guidance about the best course of action based on your
child’s interests and career aspirations.

Congratulations once again, we look forward to interacting
with you and your child!

Sincerely,

Shekhar Hardikar

What do students have to say
about our past programmes?

I always liked to draw         Usually, in school, teachers
but this was extremely         can’t interact with us
different. I chose             because there are a lot of
architecture because the       kids. At ASSET Summer
other courses on the list      Programme if I have a
looked like something          doubt even out of class,
we could learn in school.      our instructor sits with us
I just felt it would involve   during lunch and snacks
a lot of creativity so         and we can ask our
that’s why I chose it. This    questions whenever we
course has exceeded my         want. It’s very easy to talk
expectations so this was       to him because it’s more
the best summer ever!’         like talking to a friend than

What do parents have to say
about our past programmes?

Our daughter enjoyed        When I read what my
the way of teaching         daughter wrote I was
here a lot which is why     quite impressed. I
we decided to send her      always knew she thinks
for the second year. The    well and has a creative
level of learning here is   side, but she was not
extremely high, students    able to portray that on
have almost learnt all      paper. But when I read
the statistical concepts    her work, I was very
taught in the first year     happy because I could
of university! Not just     see the way she has
our daughter but all the    evolved and the kind of
kids were talking so        confidence she has
confidently about            gained. There is a
correlation coefficients,    tremendous change in
regressions and outlier     her attitude and the way
sets - it was amazing!’     she speaks as well.’

What do school leaders have to
say about our past programmes?

After seeing ASSET Summer        I liked that there were

how certain subjects can be      at his or her own pace, and how
taught - especially abstract     they were given help if
concepts to make them more       required, but they were left
interesting. In my experience,   alone to learn through peer
there are students who like      interaction. It was also
physics and maths, and there     interesting to see how they
are students who shy away        discovered answers to the
from the subject. Here I         questions they themselves put
noticed how the entire class     across! That shows to students
was with the instructor - not    that they already have the

The instructor related to        about it. It was nice to see how
them in their own language,      students were able to connect
even the technical terms         these answers to the concepts
used were simplified to           that were taught earlier. This
