After the sale of the OMR forms, students now want to make sure they are opting for the right course.

With many faced with the dilemma of choosing between a good college and a course of their choice, perplexity is at its peak at Delhi University (DU).

The first day of the educational fair, Hindustan Times Aspirations 2010, saw a huge number of students coming in to clear their doubts.

Some renowned professors of the university attended the counselling session to help students deal with several complex concerns.

“Education is not just about getting good marks and jobs, it is much more than that,” Dr S K Vij, Dean, Students Welfare of DU said.

“The students should move beyond the degrees of knowledge.”

There was a lot of discussion on the choice between a college and a course.

The educationists felt choosing the right course would be a better option.

“You have to chart a course that reads up to your aspiration,” said Dr Pratibha Jolly, principal, Miranda House.

Anubhav Sinha, a DU aspirant, said, “I did not score good marks in my exams and was depressed regarding my future. But here I came to know about a large number of opportunities that will help to shape my future.”

There were various career options available for students to explore in the fair such as Advertising, Animation, Aeronautics, Banking, Bio Technology, Computer Training, Engineering, Fashion Designing, Film Technology, Finance, Graphic Designing, Hospitality & Travel, Information Technology, Insurance, Interior Designing, Law, Management and many more.

Srikriti Rastogi, another student who came to the fair, said, “The counselling session was really helpful. I was confused between B Com and BBA, but now all my queries are cleared.”
