Because life is too short to make all the mistakes and learn so let us learn from the experience of others and avoid these mistakes while selecting the college for higher education –
1.Never choose a college blindly following your friend
No two people are same; your friends’ potential and passion doesn’t match yours; so choose the college which matches and ignite your passion rather than going for a college where your friends are enrolling into.
2.Choosing the college on the basis of relative’s recommendation or your parents pressure
You are a new-age generation, so we recommend that you look for the college ratings on various websites like Shiksha, College Duniya or check out various rankings surveys to know college rankings and then take the decision.
3.Choosing a college where teachers are known for their lenient approach
Discipline is very important during college years so you better choose a college which is strict about attendance and classes rather than a lenient one.
