How to select a college?
There are numerous colleges getting opened everywhere and it is important as a student to identify the best college which you give you rich knowledge in the area of your choice and which will land you in a job after the stipulated course duration.
Hence you need to find the suitable college based on your needs. There are many rankings available online on various colleges and these rankings are published based on various factors such as reputation of college, course grades of students who are studying there, placement statistics, infrastructure etc. So you should not take the rankings casually. They are serious enough for you to consider at the time of selecting a college. All rankings may not suit you as your traits, talents and requirements may vary. Hence based on your interested course of study and other factors, choose the ranking. Moreover, take rankings as guidance for the selection of college and not the final decision making option.
There are many other alternative options to rely upon on the selection of the college of your choice. One among those factors is discussed in the rest of this article. The first and foremost consideration is a higher graduation rate of the college. The ultimate aim of every student is to finish the course in stipulated course of time or in the worst case, a couple of years later. But there are certain colleges that have very less graduation rate when compared to others. One may argue that the performance of a student is his ability and college has nothing to do with it, but the fact that only colleges with higher graduation rate may give best coaching to the students that is mandatory for them to pass the exams. If the college ranks lower in pass percentage, then there is no use in selecting that college because you may not achieve your goal studying there.
The main reason for the higher rates are proper coaching by the faculties present in the college, plenty of resources such as laboratories, libraries, internet connectivity for updating their skills and knowledge in the field of study. Such colleges usually admit students with higher merit score and hence the college’s ranking goes high. There are certain colleges which run only for the purpose of giving education for students who otherwise cannot attend college studies in other colleges.
