You are in the 12th standard and there is talk about which college to apply to, where to go, what course to do but you are lost and confused. There are a 101 websites and brochures available but none of them give you clarity nor do they help you decide. This is also the stage when most parents enter the panic mode and start fretting over their child’s future. They want their son/daughter to get into the best college, one that is reputed and ranked among the top to excel in their life.
Which is where Collegedunia.com comes in. The website is a one stop shop for all those seeking guidance in college applications. Founded by Sahil Chalana, Collegedunia is all about collating available data, putting in various parameters and enabling students and parents make wise informed decisions. They have information related to nearly 15000 colleges and universities across the country and are looking at ramping up to 30000 by the end of 2014.
Be it Science, Commerce, Medicine, Management or Engineering, there are colleges listed on this site with information on how much the fee is, whether there is hostel facility or not, what kind of courses they offer, whether it is full time or part time and much more, including information about student clubs. Infact, everything from IIT to other colleges are listed here, which gives the visitor a 360 view of what their options are. Back when I was getting into college, it was all about talking to friends and cousins who had completed their graduation, asking for their inputs and then picking out the one that fitted my preferences. How I wish Collegedunia.com had existed back then, would have been so much easier and I would have gone beyond my realms.
What is more, I discovered this site even offers insight into the entrance exams across categories as well. Visitors can also ask questions to counsellors through the site, add colleges to their shortlist cache and do all the research they need to before taking a decision.
But then I guess it is a boon for kids who are entering College phase now or in the future!!No more panicking and running around! If you’d like to know more, visit collegedunia.com or alternatively you can mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
