Dilemmas for Nagaland Engineering Aspirants: Why NIT Nagaland?
With the emergence of unauthentic educational institutions on one hand and well advertised institutions offering scholarships, discounts and other privileges, it is pertinent to consider few dilemmas.
As anxious parents, guardians, well-wishers, and friends and as successful engineering aspirants in Joint Entrance Exam (JEE), teeming with excitement, confusion and a mixture of both, here are few dilemmas pertaining certain misconstrued ideas and avertable errors. Firstly, what is NIT Nagaland? National Institutes of Technology (NIT) Nagaland is one among 31 other centrally-funded government engineering institutes in India.
Private vs. Government Funded Institution Dilemma
It is rather indisputable that private schools and colleges/institutions fare much better in terms of overall quality of education in India.Hence, the overall performance result is there for us to verify. If at all government owned schools and colleges are favored, it is for reasons like; cheaper tuition fees and sometimes even for an easier escape route to have a degree for some wards. Centrally-funded government engineering institutes in India bears all the qualities of the above private schools/colleges and the vice-versa.
Home state vs. Studying outside Dilemma
This is a persisting dilemma among youngsters whose choice of educational institution outside one’s home state is based on getting ‘exposure’ and sometimes out of peer pressure/ ignorance etc It is so, since seat allocation at NITs happen at the national level called Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB) where individual institutions has no control in terms of preference or policy of students selection.Therefore, choices to pick private institutions over government institution (like NIT) for the sake of ‘exposure’ outside one’s home state needs to be examined.
Home state Quota vs. ST Quota Dilemma
This dilemma perhaps is compounded especially for North Eastern States of India However, in a typical south Indian home/school, children by their middle school are conscious of these technical institutions and are geared up for coaching and extra classes to get into IITs/NITs through Join Entrance Exam (JEE). For example, in Nagaland, NIIT is a household name whereas many parents and engineering aspirants alike are not aware of NIT Nagaland.
Therefore, rather than going by familiar institutional name and acquaintance thereof, it is pertinent to consider long term benefits and the value of the institution through proper consultation and verification.
With these dilemmas in mind, NIT Nagaland has opened (along with other 31 NITs all over India) an institutional Help center for all engineering and architecture aspirants for the year 2017. It may also be mentioned that candidates can fill in as many choices but each and every choice should be well examined in line with the tidbits and dilemmas discussed here and more.
