#CareerBytes: Alternate options for those who didn't clear engineering entrances

In India, most science students opt for engineering after Class 12. A career in engineering is preferred by many as it offers an exciting variety of job opportunities.

Every aspirant appears for numerous engineering entrance exams, but not everyone can crack these. Those who haven't cleared these entrances might feel dejected, but they must instead focus on other opportunities.

Here are some alternate options.

Go for private universities or colleges for engineering

Go for private universities or colleges for engineering

Those who are passionate about engineering but haven't cleared national-level engineering entrance exams can appear for state-level ones or go for private universities, colleges, or technical institutes.

Several private institutes conduct their own entrance exams, which are generally not as difficult as national-level exams.

Some colleges admit candidates through management quota or direct admission based on merit. However, choosing a good college is essential.

#2

Opt for a professional degree in science related field

Students should also realize that engineering isn't the only professional course related to science. There are a number of courses they can join that are related to their subjects like science and math.

Some of the popular courses include Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Mathematics, Physics, or Chemistry, Bachelor of Computer Applications (BCA), Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch), and Bachelor of Design (B.Des) among others.

Instead of feeling low, it's important to think about what needs to be done next.

If they are really interested in engineering and don't want to go for other options, they can drop a year and give these entrances another try. However, they should work on their weaknesses before appearing again.
