Common entrance for all

Living without your phone and all the contacts stored (especially when school is over and you REALLY miss your friends) is tough! Thanks to the entrance exams again, I lost my cell. Stolen should be more appropriate. The guard at the entrance of the examination centre asks you to deposit the cell with him, takes down your roll no and disappears once the exam is over. Obviously, the school authorities are not responsible! Its awesome how systematic things are in government colleges and schools, Isn’t it?

Gone are the days when we had a set of colleges to choose from and a common entrance for all. Currently, there a hundred universities with a thousand courses to offer and new ones always keep coming up. Shiv Nadar University and NIIT University are two such new universities that I applied to for BTech this year. The private universities today are coming up and offering top class education. They not only provide with great infrastructure and first class learning process through research work, but also enhance the overall personality more due to the various co-curricular activities they offer. These colleges conduct interviews for admitting students and the entrances alone are not the only criteria for selection. These universities, I believe, are a great option to consider for studying in. They have great prospects for the future. Plus, there is obviously no added tension of losing your cell phone.
