Careers are always the bone of contention for twelfth class students especially. Instead of having an immense pressure of scoring high in their board exams, they also get confused in choosing a right college for themselves.

Apart from taking tips from seniors or discussing the scope of course with other graduates and postgraduates is one option but other than that, the internet as a communication tool can be very useful. It can provide you with least known information and help you in taking a wise decision. But sometimes the internet can also mislead you due to the absence of proper facts. But, here, is going to help you to decide the suitable college for you.

1. Curriculum

Curriculum means the subjects comprising a course of study in a college. The official website of the particular college will certainly help you to know the future subjects of our course. The subjects either attracts you or disgrace you as they will be the deciding factor of our career. Don't forget to take a printout and think of them.

2. Certificates

Although your skills and practical knowledge of the subject will help you in the long run but as an evident you need to show your certificates. The more you participate and learn the extracurricular activities in your college, the more you will be able to present yourself as a multitalented personality.

3. Faculty

A teacher is the one who can inspire the hope, ignite the imagination and instill a love of learning. Faculty plays a major role in shaping you not only as a successful person but also as a successful human. Check down the list of faculty members who will teach you during the course and then decide which college to choose.

4. Placements

No matter how much you learn and grow, one day you have to give it back to the world. The companies and organizations during the placements are certainly the most crucial part of your life. Be careful and skeptical while looking at the list of placements and, of course, the package.

5. Alumni Network

The Alums are those who have spent a good three to four years in the college and taking suggestions from them will definitely help you in the long run. Their suggestions will be 'directly from the horse mouth' and help you in taking a wise decision and shape your career efficiently.

6. Location

Although if you are able to get an admission in a top ranking college, the location should not be your concern but for those students who have the option to choose between two colleges near and far away from the house, the decision should depend on the circumstances. If your home is a better place where you can study peacefully, choose the near one or in another case, go with the second option.

7. Cost of Study

Apart from tuition fee, a college student has to spend the money on books, canteen, transport and clothes. So keep all these things in mind while calculating the cost of your study.

We hope that the above points will help you in taking a better decision. All the best!
