The first two milestones in a student’s life are class 10 and class 12. Post that is College! Earlier, very few career options were preferred by the parents for their children. And for each career, top-notch institutes were targeted by all the students. The same mindset may not be applicable today.

It is the blend of a decent rated college and hard work of the child will take him to a greater height. Some of the key points which should be kept in mind while selecting the best-suited college are the following:

Institute

It is not important to get admission only in a renowned institute. Well rated colleges also have the ability to groom the students well. The infrastructure, the staff, the gentry of students need to be kept in mind while analysing a college. Speak to existing students, alumni if possible, know about the Institute, the opportunities it provides.

FACULTY

At times, the infrastructure of the college doesn’t appeal much to the parents. But the standard of faculty is better. So one should focus on the education and experience of the faculty. This information is usually available on the website of the college. Teachers who teach, therefore, matter a lot while finalising an institute.

SCHOLARSHIPS

The students must try for scholarships which are available. They help you manage one’s finances. Plus one gets a certificate which gives an edge in the resume.

It’s not necessary that one gets a yes for all the above parameters. At the end of the day, if one gets a decent college with good faculty and good location, it’s a pretty good deal for students. Then it will be their efforts which will convert a good deal into a phenomenal deal!
