Education awareness

By Nagaland Post | Publish Date: 4/22/2019 12:37:44 PM IST

 At this time of the year, it is not uncommon to see and overhear discussions of students in every corner about their choice of professional career options, colleges and places of interest. While it is good to maintain the enthusiasm of finding a good college; it is equally important to keep a balance and go cautiously about. Having just come out of the recent exam tensions, students have other pressures to face like expectation of families, teachers and even friends, which makes them vulnerable to be duped and cheated as most of them are facing such dilemmas for the first time.

Our main objective is creating awareness to students and parents regarding various admission processes by some colleges, universities and agencies that targets students for admission only as they have to fill up their seats somehow, but without any genuine concern and interests for the students’ career. It is a known fact that every college/university will claim that they are the best among the rest, but it depends on the prior knowledge and wise discretion on the part of the students and parents to remain safe from disrepute and bad colleges. In this regard, we advise students and parents to authenticate colleges, check course affiliations, recognition status etc, before taking admissions for any professional courses in the colleges, so that the students’ career is not jeopardized. They are asked to remain careful and vigilant and not fall prey to the sweet-talk of various agencies who are trained to convince innocent and gullible ones. In the quest for good colleges most students are victimised and exploited .They are advised not to opt for colleges offering free education schemes/scholarships schemes/fee concessions etc as such institutes resort to different ways to get students only.

We have found that some private agri & allied colleges in Dehradun are being managed without important facilities like libraries, labs , hostels ,classrooms , increased intake of seats annually without meeting the requirements ,some are overburdened with many courses in agri and allied subjects without producing quality results ,though it cannot be denied that some colleges are in top position with proper approvals and necessary infrastructures. We have  learnt that some new as well as old colleges in Uttarkhand with very  less students are entrusting some students bodies in Dehradun to search students for admission to their colleges on commission basis. So, students should be careful while seeking admissions in agri and allied courses.

During the past years, we have observed that many fraudulent admission, education schemes and admissions brought by agents and some student bodies, in collaboration with universities and colleges have duped many students and destroyed their career as experienced in the recent past and which is still fresh in our memories.

At various education fairs good colleges are rarely present as they do not require publicity for admissions, whereas we have seen that majority of the participating colleges and universities are not up to the mark and some are on the verge of closing down their courses due to lack of students. Even if any good reputed colleges come, they never allot the best and top courses but offer only those in which students are not interested. On questioning they always respond that the best courses get filled up by the locals of their own state. So, if students visit such fairs to gain experience, which are conducted by some organisations or groups in the name of helping tribal students, they are earning money by selling their stalls to any ‘Tom ,Dick and Harry’ institutes, students should remain careful while selecting colleges.

We have also witnessed that the concerned government department has been organising education fairs for spot admissions and recommending to students by giving a platform to some Private colleges and universities; we request them not to recommend or allot seats to students in such private colleges, especially engineering and allied courses without having proper knowledge  of their real status, since it is a matter of life and death for student’s career. Some of these colleges which we have inspected are not upto the mark and do not have approvals also for some courses by the competent authorities.  Moreover, such colleges are only looking for empanelment with the department. Recently one such college from Rajasthan informed us that the concerned department is charging hefty amount for empanel registration. So, we request parents and students to be careful especially during admission season as such colleges will rush in to get students by any means. Since it is a well known fact, that good colleges gets their seats filled up without the need for  publicity or offer educational schemes, fee concessions etc as they stand on their own reputation.

We humbly request the concerned student bodies to check and stop such spurious admission activities that are being  organised by agencies, colleges, organisations, govt departments  etc in their jurisdiction especially during admission season, because they are doing for their own benefit in the name of helping tribal students. In case of any untoward admissions related incidents in the future, such agencies should take responsibility and not play blame game in the end by washing their hands off.

This is a gentle  reminder to students that degrees or certificates alone is not sufficient to have a satisfied career in life, it is important to have a degree with competence, which will be instrumental in serving as a footboard in achieving one’s dream profession .Hence , the importance of choosing college with prudence. Parents are advised to admit their children in colleges with hostel facilities, in order to maintain discipline and regularity in attendance and to avoid back logs in their exams.
