Do East Indians have the information about quality (nationally & internationally recognized) educational institutions where they can study? Some of them do brilliantly in SSC (score distinction) and then faze out. This blog is to put together the names, addresses, and entrance criteria of good educational institutions where East Indians can study and excel after successfully passing SSC/HSC. It will act as a foundation to living a better life.

Hi Desmond,
Since mine is the only comment why do'nt you go ahead and post a list according to your experience and appropriate members can add to the list or comment on your list.
It would be a valuable source for members who have Teenagers and are looking for a personalised list. it may also be useful if you can share your own personal experience as appropriate as it may be someone looking for this piece of info.

What after SSC/HSC

Yesterday one of my neighbours asked me "My son's SSC exams are over now, can you please let me know what he should do after SSC?". What after SSC/HSC? this is one of the common question being asked by parents and students who want to develop career in today's world where without a proper education you are no where. Lakhs of students appear for SSC every year and this question looms large on their minds as well as their parents.

If students or parents do not get proper guidance & come under the influences of what others do and not then under such wrong career decision they end up with mess and spoils child career. Let us see what are this wrong influence career decisions which leads to spoiling a Childs career.

Career chosen based on what others say: Here the influencing factors are relatives, friends and neighbours. Just like my neighbours asked me many other parents asks to family friends, neighbours and relatives which may not be always correct for your child. What answer parents receives are normally "My son did engineering and now he is earnings handsome salary", "After SSC my nephew joined Computers field as there is a big demand of Computer in future so you can take up a course in Computers" etc. I am not saying don?t ask any one about your Childs career but the thing is do not force your child to do what others are saying. After all it is your child who is going to face the future situation based on his/her decision. So find out the right interest and aptitude of your child.

Career choice based on friends choice: After spending 10 years of schooling many students feel that they remain with their friends forever, so they intend to join the career what the friends are going to do. But in this case the career chosen may not be suited as the level of the student is not up to the required mark.

Wrong Notions: People still under wrong notions even in this fast expanding world, they think that Medical and Engineering studies as highly prestigious. So many times it has been seen that parents want their child to take up Science after SSC irrespective of whether he/she would be able to cope up with its syllabus or not. Even students getting low percentage in SSC are admitted to science colleges. This results into a failure and then dropouts and finally switching over to either Commerce or Arts stream.

Choosing a career is a multi-step process. Before concluding from your side try to find out from your child about his/her best aptitude, interests. If you are still not able to satisfy then attend seminars for career guidance after SSC/HSC which many schools arranges for their students or even many private organizations arranges in their suburb. go and attend those seminars. Try to meet teachers as they are the best one who knows about your Childs skills and capacity. Finally don?t hesitate to go in for career counseling
, as it will be beneficial for your child in the later stage of life to pursue or go in for higher studies.

Most of the students I have seen they go in for Engineering as a career. But they are confused as to start the career with Diploma or HSC. I would suggest them if engineering is to be done, then going directly to diploma after SSC is good option. Engineers having diploma background have an extra advantage in career as they spends 6 years in engineering field as compared to HSC + Engineer who spends 4 years in engineering field. Also after HSC, getting into better engineering course is very tough as it requires very high percentage in HSC and then very good percentile in CET. And CET will be there for HSC students applying for engineering and is never going to be removed.

As compared, after diploma, if you have better percentage in last year, you get direct admission to 2nd year of engineering and thus you are saved from the dreadful 1st year of engineering which is considered as the toughest year in any engineering course because there is a drastic change in the pace of study from HSC to Engineering.

I have always chosen the fields I like. But, it was also based on the subjects I excelled in. If I like a particular field and find the corresponding subjects difficult, obviously I cannot become an expert in that field. But if this field has subjects to my liking, I'm destined to excel. This is what I have found. Your opinion may vary.

Most of the students who do well abroad are alumni of excellent Indian institutions like IITs, IIMs, and other regional engineering colleges and management institutes. But, most of our best institutes have entrance exams and/or group discussions and/or interviews. It is because the demand is high and there are many candidates who want to enrol in these institutes.

Sorry I am talking about engineering/management institutes since I am an alumni of two of them and I know what it takes to get through their entrance exams and finally graduate with flying colours.

It is a lifelong struggle but in the end you start enjoying it. You don't merely enjoy the end result but the real fun is in the difficult journey you have to take.

Please add educational institution names in other fields or areas. While adding the names, please add institutions of repute in India or abroad. I want the best East Indian students to study at the best institutes. With OBC status for EI, more of EIs can enrol in these institutes.

Different people may have different opinions. My experience tells that if you do engineering after HSC, you will know whether you have the aptitude to do it or not. All good engineering institutes require you to have good skills in Maths, Physics & Chemistry. Physics is actually Applied Mathematics, so too is Computer Science!

Many of my classmates (who completed HSC before doing engineering) whether B. Tech. or M. Tech. are abroad in USA/Canada/UK/Australia and they are working for good organizations (check out LinkedIn.com).

If you get over 75% in Maths & Science in SSC, most probably you may have good skills to handle engineering/medical subjects, unless you have only memorized the topics without understanding them. Even in Computer Science, you may require good Math skills to develop program or database. Of course, medical students may not require good Math skills, though it will help them in Genetics.

While it is good and less hectic to join college near you for Stds. XI/XII & higher, you must still consider the reputation of the college. Some really good colleges are far away but it may pay rich dividend afterwards since the lecturers & facilities provided in those institutions are excellent and the students enrolled are intelligent and competitive. In addition, you will get the latest information on various courses in higher education and the job market for those courses.

I came from St Anthony's, Malvani, Malad and went on to complete my HSC from St Xavier's, Fort, B. Tech. from IIT (Varanasi), and M. Tech. from Indian Statistical Institute, Calcutta. In between, I worked for Tata Steel. Then for Crompton Greaves before migrating to NZ. I'm not boasting myself here! This is due to the reasons I have stated in my previous paragraphs.

I also know that many students who pass SSC with distinction don't do well afterwards. It may be because of bad guidance, or joining a wrong institution, or becoming complacent. You can only compare yourself with the company you keep!

Hi Selma,

Mechanical Engineering is a better option as it is not a specialized field like Automobile Engg and your son can get jobs in various sub-fields of Mechanical Engg. But, if he is passionate about (and have the skills to do) Automobile Engg, then he must do Automobile Engg!

Did your son sit for IIT JEE? IITs are the best & renowned institutions for Engg (any fields). They are well known abroad. Most of the IITians are abroad in good organisations including NASA. When I went through IITJEE, they were selecting only 2000-2500 students (all over India). Fortunately I got selected. Now the seats must have increased to 5000 since there are more IITs. With OBC status for East Indians now, it should be relatively easy if your son gets distinction in HSC. Admission is not based on HSC marks but on their own entrance exam and criteria.

There are other regional colleges in each state. Please ask your son to search them on the internet. But, more important is to discuss with his classmates who are doing well and his batchmates studying at good institutions. I am in Auckland and don't have access to this kind of information.

Hope this helps. If you have further questions please ask again.

Dear all who have commented about OBC status.

If you feel just getting the OBC status from the govt. was enough you are wrong.
1st. You have to prove you are an East Indian to the govt. which is almost impossible. You might say that the Bandra Gymkhana is giving out certificates that say your EI and then you can edit your Baptism cert. BUT the govt officials do not give any importance to baptism certificates. Also many of them don't understand EI and they ask for a Caste cert. within the famiily. that cannot be possible becoz many of the people are the first ones to apply from the family and that makes it very tough.

2nd. because of that, even though we are East Indians and coming under OBC we cannot use it.

So I feel the awareness should be spread more regarding the OBC status, also most families don't know about the importance of it so they tend to take it lightly and never go forward for it.
So I feel the government should make it easier for people who are the first ones to apply in the family. Also the churches should spread the news about it so more people know.

Hello fellow, East Indians.

My name is Shernell Concessio, I am an East Indian and Interested in doing a fulltime MBA from a Top Institute however the competition is so high that it is just so difficult to get a seat to these institutes, thats where a OBC quota plays its role. My mother is actually working on getting the east Indian OBC certificate done however she has just got the Document from Bombay Gym Khana and has to submit it at Andheri for the OBC certificate. As Steven previously mentioned that this OBC certificate is useless for Admissions. I just wanted to know how true is this? This is really disappointing as many of us east Indians would like to do something for our community and come up in life. Please help me out here. Also it would be great, if I could know how long it takes to receive a OBC document once submitted to the government office.

Look forward to your replies.

Shernell,

Try to get admission at one of the top MBA institutes with your OBC certificate (if you have got one) and then see. I don't have any experience since I have never used one and I'm in NZ.

Even with OBC, you may still have to go through the admission process (application, written test, interview and/or group discussion, medical test). But, the selection criteria may be lower than the general category candidates.

Please share on this website if it possible to use OBC. But first you have to reach interview/GD stage.
