It's a high time for students to kick-start the admission process for the new academic year. Many students, specifically after class 12, apply to various colleges for an admission besides taking part in the counselling sessions held by National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) and Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA).
Taking part in the college admission and counselling sessions is quite stressful because of multiple options available for a single subject. Students who are clear about their goals will find it a bit easy. Coming to students who have not yet decided which specialisation to choose, it is a stressful task.
When you are opting for the admission and counselling processes, many factors will stress you, like meeting the deadlines and choosing the field of study. If you feel that you are stressed because of these factors, avoid them with the help of the below-discussed tips.
Choose The Career Choice
This is the first thing that stresses students during the college admissions. If you feel stressed while choosing a field, take the help of your parents and well-wishers, besides your teachers. We do agree that there are some offbeat specialisations which have lesser opportunities compared to others. If you are really passionate about them, don't give too much importance to the high-success job rate.
Scrutinise The Colleges
Many students, specifically high school graduates, aim for a particular college for an admission and there is nothing wrong in that. However, the reality might be different because the admissions depend on various factors.
We suggest students figure out the colleges based on their performance; this will increase the chances of getting an admission. Keep the list compact and be ready with other options as well in case you fail to get an admission.
Make Yourself Familiar With Admission Process
One more important point that stresses students is not being familiar with the admission process. Students should be familiar with the entire process, starting from the application process to the counselling rounds. Always keep your documents ready for the admissions.
Say No To Many Colleges
Applying to many colleges also makes the admission process stressful. It is always suggested to consider a few colleges for an admission if you are applying individually rather than through a counselling session. Applying to too many colleges pulls your confidence down. Applying to 10 different colleges is more than enough.
Accept At least One College Admission
Every college has different application deadlines. If your dream college releases the admission result late, it is better to have a second option. Accept the admission for the second best college which will reduce the stress and anxiety.
If you get an admission to your dream college, you can cancel your other admission. There is nothing wrong with this and most of the colleges give enough time to confirm the seat. However, track all the deadlines because one cannot do this once they are closed.
Though the college admissions are quite stressful, one can handle them easily with the above tips. Always be positive and keep your options open all the time.
