It is better opt for a course than a college. It will be better to apply for courses where you can get in. You may also get admission into your dream college in courses like B.El.Ed., BE or Journalism, etc. Keep your eyes open for entrance test dates and forms.

Getting into the college of your choice will be tough as competition in this category is the maximum, but once again, choose the course over college. Also wait for first, second and third lists as many seats fall vacant after most students have chosen their college and course.

You’ve made your mark but a seat in colleges like SRCC, St. Stephens and LSR may still elude you. Choose a good college. Many lesser-known colleges have excellent faculty. You can wait for the cut off to dip and then select the course. You can also migrate to a college of your choice if you do well in your first year examinations.
