Choosing The Right Path
When a student is planning to undertake Higher Education, a number of questions come to his/her mind. We have identified a number of these questions and have listed them down for you to think about and speculate. What is your philosophy about education? What does quality mean to you? What kind of career do you want? What kind of companions do you want to have? What kind of university would you prefer? Answer to all these questions is important regarding your future. The University should be able to help you to pursue your interests and provide you with best opportunities.

Not all Universities are alike. Not all people are alike. Not all have same destiny. Not all have the same motivation. Universities claim philosophy, results, and quality. It is all up to you to go for the first, the best, and the one on the top. Set the priorities of your life first--- then choose your University carefully; this is one of the most important decisions you will make in your life. Make sure it leads towards your future goal. Take a chance, if you are highly motivated, sharp-minded, value-oriented and ready to take up the leadership challenge
