Indian students preferring foreign universities for their higher education


Survey has revealed that there is a strong presence of students of Indian origin in universities in the USA. These students, reportedly contribute a huge amount to the economy of USA. Students of Indian origin are one of the largest among the foreign students in the USA. Though America has always been the most popular destination for Indian students to pursue their undergraduate and postgraduate studies outside India, Indian students are also found in many other countries such as Germany, Canada etc. There are various reasons for the same. These reasons shall be discussed in this article.

Reasons why they prefer studying abroad

The two most important reasons for the departure of Indian students to US universities are:
•    Top-quality education
•    Prospects of a better economy
These reasons can be discussed in detail:
•    Students who look for universities to continue their education after their bachelor’s find very few universities in India that are globally recognized. They prefer institutes that are acknowledged worldwide. The number of such institutes in India is limited. Also, they cannot accommodate the ever-growing number of students.
•    The top universities in foreign countries tend to be valued more when it comes to employment in India and abroad compared to Indian universities.
•    Better facilities at foreign universities for research also contribute to this emigration of Indian students.
•    Studying at foreign universities is also considered as the first step towards permanent emigration to these countries. Survey has shown that most of the students who complete their post-graduate degree or doctorate in foreign countries remain there. Better salaries and better standards of living may be reasons for the same. 

Measures to prevent the same

Improving the quality of education in India at the undergraduate, postgraduate and doctorate level is the key solution to prevent this. There are many entrance exams such as ICAR 2018, NEET 2018 to ensure quality among Indian students. The curriculum and facilities provided at these universities should be at par with top universities worldwide. More importance to research and research facilities should be provided to the students. Employment opportunities within India should be improved. The remuneration and working conditions should be comparable to other countries. The students’ taking part in government exams SSC MTS 2018 and in turn join colleges, do not get much help from the colleges when it comes to recruiting.

There is a noticeable upward trend in the number of foreign students preferring Indian universities but this is still very less compared to the vice versa. Though Indian students are considered to be intelligent and hardworking with a determination to achieve in life, it is a shame to see so many of them shift to other countries for the same. The education system of India should be altered in such a way that they can accommodate the brilliant minds of India. The Indian economy will also highly beneficial if the students study and contribute to India.

The Art of Writing VTU Exam

Here is the last chapter from the eBook for all students preparing for their exam.


Scoring in an exam is not all about studying and preparing for it! which was covered in the previous chapters. The way you write down the answers on the paper is what really matters. Even though you pretty well know the answer, you must be able to convince the evaluator first. Presentation of an answer is very skillful attribute to have. If by good presentation you get 1 extra mark every answer, you can do the math as to how much it will add up in the final marks. 

As soon as you get the question paper, spend 10 minutes reading and analyzing the questions. Group the questions you know thoroughly, write down their numbers in the answer booklet and keep the remaining for the end. Among the answers you know, write the short ones first. Like the numerical problems that you know and short answers and definition, this will not only boost your confidence but also give a good impression to the answer sheet evaluator.

Sometimes students in a hurry students write the wrong answer, you are asked specific question on a topic, anything you write apart from it carries no mark and is just a waste of time. 

Before answering the question, just think about all that you have to answer. Many times when you start writing an answer you very well knew, but all of a sudden forget it. Therefore, you can write down small points/headings with a pencil, so that you don’t forget to include them and later erase it. Some questions will have two parts, do not forget to attend the other.

Have a good introduction to the answer, try to use the exact same definition/sentence from the preferred textbook in the first line, and make sure every new paragraph starts with a key point.
 




1. Time management: There will be 5 units/modules to attempt, so give 30mins time limit to each module. And you will be left with 30 minutes at the end, which you can use either to check or write answers to unknown questions. Always keep the unknown answers to the last, this way you won’t spend too much time on it. It is very likely that you will remember them towards the end of the exam. Sometimes just remember answers just as you exit the exam hall.

2. First impression: It is always important that you get a good first impression from the evaluator who will correct your paper, therefore make sure you write answers you are most comfortable with.

3. Highlight: In VTU as you all know correction will take place online in selected colleges, the invigilator gets a scanned copy of your answer sheets, so at an average it is said that an invigilator takes only 3-5 minutes to correct an answer booklet. Therefore, when you write answer, always underline the important/key words in your answer.

4. Handwriting: Alright, you had marks for handwriting in school, but believe it or not most lecturers give more marks for an answer that is written neatly than the ones that are of the same content but shabby. Ask your friends who have a good handwriting, on ways to improve yours.

5. Presentation: The way you present your answers also matter, make subheadings in each of your answers and try your best to add figures and key points wherever and whenever necessary. Figures carry a lot more weightage than the writing.

6. Never leave questions blank: Come on! There are no negative marks, so never leave any questions blank, you can write answers to these in the last 30 minutes that I told you to spare.


7. Don't be disappointed: If you could not do a subject well, don't be disappointed because it will only ruin the next exams to come. Stay cool, you have done your part! 

8. To-remember list: Have a ‘to remember’ list from all the units/modules you studied, use this to revise before you enter the examination hall.

9. More pages more mark: This might not always work, but it will work if the subject is only theory, so make sure your answers are big. Imagine you wrote 35 pages, one mark for each page will give you the passing marks.

10. Study the repeated questions: Study repeated questions from the previous question papers, more than 50%-80% or even 100% of the questions would have been asked in the previous exams. Some students only study the important questions and manage to get 60 and above. But this might not always be the case, once in a while some question papers will be totally out of the world which most of you would have experienced at-least once. Yeah memories!

11. Solve Numerical Problems: Don't know the exact solution? First write down all the data given in the questions and write all the equations you know from that unit. Do some math and write down some answers, you will probably get 2 or 3 marks instead of 0. Better right!

12. Eat light: Don't have a heavy meal before you write your exams, especially if it is in the afternoon, because digestion requires energy and decreases the amount of energy supplied to the brain. Do some walking around or little exercises to get you brain in the active region! 

13. Last 5 minutes: It is recommended that you do not study in the last moment just as you are about to enter the examination hall. Because it sometimes causes you to forget and lose confidence and you start to believe that your memory is fading away.
