Outlook on the education system
7th Largest Nation. 2nd Highest Population. Youngest Country. Still developing. We have all been exposed to this level of information right from our school days. Yet people rarely talk about the Mangalyaan, the invention of zero ‘0’ to signify nothingness by Aryabhatta, The Raman effect which explains why the sky looks blue. The improvement in the education system however decided to put a stop to that trend; we’ve got top representatives in some of the largest tech giants like Microsoft and Google in the form of bright minds like Satya Nadella and Sundar Pichhai. Government schemes, rising need for doctors, rapid evolution in the field of technology all requiring the skills of a well-trained human mind; the need for quality education keeping up with the incredible process of evolution and change has reached the summit and does not show any signs of slowing down.
The conventional form of education still thrives in India. The classic pre-school, middle school, high school, college and post-graduation is a trend that has been followed for a long time. As of now, Engineering and technological studies along with Medical and Dental Sciences remain some of the most sought after fields of study, because of the growing need for graduates excelling in their respective areas of study. Pure science is also regarded highly by those who pursue the career of a scientist or a teacher. All the institutions harnessing research and providing job opportunities in these fields also require man management. Because of these needs, the requirement for Business study graduates (BBA course /MBA) have also shot up; and arguably they have the highest responsibility when it comes to bringing out the best out of the resource they deal with; the people.
The school to college transition:
In India, the transition from school to college involves a lot of pre-requisites; ample preparation for the entrance examinations, selection of which university or college to pursue higher studies at, and most of all choosing the course. In a country with numerous job and start-up opportunities; “Who do you want to be?” can be a tough question to answer for an 18 year old. The students are expected to consider various factors before choosing the course. The importance and relevance of the field in the society, the possible growth and development in the field, and the status and fat pay check that comes with it. Majority of the population gets caught up in the race to obtain the latter, they often tend to look past the more serious and important former issue. However, people have learned to appreciate the importance of all fields and branches of study; parents are now less reluctant to allow their children to pursue modelling and fashion design, which could definitely reflect on vital progress that could help India make the final leap from the ‘developing’ to the ‘developed’ status. The student gets to decide his/her future; they have options all around the country – B.Tech colleges in Maharashtra, Design schools in Ahmedabad, Medical institutions in Delhi.
Choosing the right college:
After deciding on the course, the student will need to make sure that he/she ends up in an environment where they can harness the required skills to maximise the efficiency of the output. They will be required to choose the right college for themselves and the right entrance examination which will help them get admission in that college. Resources are available online in the form of informative websites like GetMyUni, which can guide the students to make the right choice when it comes to professional universities and colleges.
