Q.No.1 I am a student of B.Com. (pass) final year DU. I want to take up MCA after graduation .Am I eligible to do it from universities like DU.JNU.KU. Roorkee University etc? I had maths till 10+2 but not at the graduation level. Please advice me which universities can I apply to and what are the job opportunities ?

  Ans.   MCA is a three year course which imparts all software skills and some management’s skills, as well. The entrance exam tests your proficiency in Math’s upto +2 or even higher level. Though a few institutes, restrict it to class tenth level, DU,JNU and Pune University’s entrance exams are the tough tests  to crack .Most are of two hours’ duration and objective type. Some also test reasoning computer fundamentals etc. Since you already had math’s in +2 you are eligible for almost every entrance exam. The minimum eligibility may change from year to year, but usually they make things easier for the aspirants. Nevertheless, you need to keep an eye on the advertisement which should start appearing shortly. As far as job prospects go, they are extremely good since almost every industry is capitalizing on the information explosion and technology penetration.

  Q.NO.2           I am keen on taking a course in mass communication .Could you please suggest what course can I take? Is there an age bar or eligibility conditions? What are the job opportunities before/behind camera? Is it worth doing from IGNOU?

  Ans.   Mass communication includes dissemination of news, information, entertainment and public messages to a large section of the masses. Radio, television, film, journalism, advertising are the main mediums. There could be several options but you first need to identify what field interests you the most. Courses are generally available at the post-graduate level, though Delhi University also offers a bachelor’s degree in journalism .Jaima Millia  Islamia offers an MA ,which includes television ,film video and print journalism ,while the Indian Institute of Mass Communication offers a PG diploma. At some DU colleges- such as Kamala Nehru and Delhi college of Arts & Commerce –advertising is also offered as a BA integrated course which includes modules in sales & marketing. Likewise , Indra Prastha College offers a BA in Mass Communications, While Makhanlal Chatturvedi Rashtriya Patrakarita Visvavidyalaya, Bhopal offers both BA and MA level courses .There is no specified upper age limit. Although IGNOU and other open universities do offer Mass Communications. It is advisable to do a regular course as there is lot of practical training involved that cannot be done through correspondence.

Q.NO.3.            I had English (Hons) in Ist BA. But I do  not Know what fields are open to me after Graduation. Please suggest.

Ans.     There are plenty of career opportunities open to English (honours) graduates. You can take a professional diploma/degree courses in journalism, publishing or mass communication (TV & films, advertising, PR).Alternatively you can also opt for corporate communications, script writing fashion, airlines /cabin crew ,event management, etc. If you are very academically-inclined teaching could be perfect for you. However first try and figure out your aptitude and what career would suit you the most.

  Q.No.4           I want to pursue MBA but am confused from where should I do it. I have already completed B Com(pass).Kindly inform me whether XLRI conducts a part-time MBA and also the date of the entrance exams.

     If you have done a three-year B.Com (pass)and if your percentage is 50 or above then with  a little preparation, you would be able to do it from any B-school. This is also the right time to scan newspaper for announcement to admissions. Yes XLRI does conduct a part-time  MBA but it is of three years duration and meant only for working executives with sufficient experience. The XLRI admission test is, usually held on the first Sunday of every year.

Q.No.5 I am a Ist divisioner ISC (PCM) currently doing
BA (history) as a regular candidate. I am also doing  BCA from IGNOU and BE via correspondence. Please suggest in which subject should I pursue engineering and what about job placement.

  Ans.   Aren’t you handling too many things at the same time? You must  choose between history or engineering. And since engineering is a very practical subject, even the correspondence course would  demand a lot of your time. I suggest that you try for admission to one of the regular engineering colleges again next year. That gives you a better chance of getting a job.

            As far as the branches are concerned your choice should depend mainly on your area of interest. Traditionally, Electronics and Mechanical Engineering have been the most popular .And there is maximum scope for jobs in these areas. Computer Engineering has also really come up, while Telecom Engineering is another emerging field that will offer plenty of jobs.

            As far as jobs are concerned, engineers are mainly employed in the government sector, in public sector organizations in private companies as commissioned officers in the defense service, in research organizations and laboratories as technical experts on engineering projects in banks and financial corporations. An engineer can also set up his own small unit/company or constancy.

  Q.No.6       I am a student of class XI and have secured  83% in my X boards. I have opted for PCBM as I want to become  a doctor though still not sure which specific field. I have the following queries:

1          Which is the best possible way to prepare for medical entrance exam-self-
        study, tuition or by joining  some institute?

2         Do CBSE-PMT,DPMT,AFMC,AIIMS,etc. have a common entrance exam?

3         Can I take entrance exam before  I take my XIIth exams?

4         Please suggest names of some good books for preparing for the entance.

5         After passing from AFMC,Pune,does one get a direct admission into the Air Force as a

6.        What are other career options if don’t clear my entrance exams?

        Kindly guide this confused girl.

 Ans.            There is no way that you can write your entrance exams without clearing your XII boards . The advantage of a coaching   institute is that these people know the examination trends and can be good guides, though there is no short-cut to self-study. Most entrance examinations have multiple questions and you have  a different orientation for it.

        All the names which you have written have different examinations and these are announced in daily newspapers. If you get selected for AFMC then after end of your MBBS, depending upon your merit  and choice  you will have to join one of the  three armed forces and you shall be a commissioned officer in the Indian armed forces.

        Don’t be  a pessimist. I suggest that you try your best for your entrance exam and you shall make it. Just in case  you don’’t  you can try again or try your luck in other fields.
