Everyone is almost the same in school and going to college makes your career better. But if you choose a college or subject in trouble and hurry, then it is a waste of time, which puts your whole career in question.
Let us focus on 10 things that are very important before starting a college education:
1) Which subjects do you like?
As soon as you come to college, you get to know about many courses. It would be nice to hear about something, but within a few days, you realize that you have made a mistake! It is better to check beforehand, then select topics or courses!
2) What kind of students are there in college?
This is very important because the kind of children who will be in college will definitely have a profound impact on your personality. So know what kind of students study in your favorite college and then decide whether to join the college or not!
3) Talked to Seniors
It is important to talk to students who have taken the course of your choice or are senior to you for a year or two. They will be able to tell what kind of job can be got from that course and which kind of life you can live after doing that course!
4) How are classes and laboratories?
If you are a science student it becomes even more important to know whether your college laboratories and classrooms are equipped with modern equipment. Otherwise, it would be very difficult to learn anything!
5) How is the Support system?
To study in college, you not only need books and teachers, but also a support system that will help in your development. How is administration, how are sports equipment, how much help do seniors and mentors in college, etc?
If your professor is good then the victory is half. If your professor is lazy, loose, or not able to teach the subject you want to study, then no matter how good a course you have chosen, it will not work!
7) Possibilities to Read Outside
Many times it happens that the course you are doing will only work or be taught here and if you want to go out for higher education, it would be impossible to find such courses! In such a situation, choose the course only after doing complete research.
8) Is college all-round?
Does your college have all the information available according to your curriculum? Will you get all kinds of help? Or do you have to do outside tuition and side-courses to support your major course? It should not be a waste of both time and money!
9) What is recognized?
Whichever college you want to pursue, know if it is recognized by the government, and what is the importance of that college and course in the job market? Only then take a decision.
If after reading all this, you feel that you are stuck in some wrong college or course, then do not panic, both the course and the college can be changed! Instead of wasting time do a little research and make the right decision!
So, make better decisions and spend time thoughtfully. This decision will affect your whole life.
