Marks: all above 75%

Answer: There are lots of jobs available for Instrumentation Engineering. Currently the whole industry is moving towards automation. Instrumentation engineering fit very well in this automation process for many large scale Mechanical, Electrical and Aeronautical companies. Every year Honeywell hires lots of engineers in this area , same is true for HAL (Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd) or NAL (National Aeronautics Lab). Applied materials is another big giant which offers lots of position for this specialization. Only thing is you need to continue your focus on getting good grades as well as knowledge of all upcoming technologies in this area. Also as you are looking to be an entrepreneur, it would be good that you get some good company initially only and then work for two three years to get good knowledge about work flow and organization chart. Aditya Dogra Instrumentation Engineering involves the control of processes within a production or manufacturing area. One advantage of Instrumentation engineers is that they get a lot of employment opportunities in Public Sectors like Indian Oil (IOCL), ONGC, BPCL, HAL and all. But from recent changes, they recruit freshers only from the GATE rankings. You need to qualify GATE for that. Moreover, you can also get employed in various private sectors mainly dealing with process control like Honeywell, Haldor & Topsoe etc. Priyangshu Priyam Kakoty

Question: Is it right to go for MBBS course abroad without NEET basis on H.S.12 th percentage by "orchid foundation" ? Please help me sir .
Current Education: n/a
Marks: n/a
Aim: n/a

Answer: There is no right or wrong answer to this question. If studying MBBS is what you desire absolutely then you have two options as far as I can see. The first is to take up a course via Orchid Foundation outside India; and the second is to wait for a year and then reappear in the NEET examination and try to do better than this year. If you choose the first option then bear in mind that getting a degree abroad will be lot harder than India in terms of financial and social aspects. For instance, a degree abroad will be more expensive than in India and there is a good possibility that you might have to learn a foreign language (which in itself is a rewarding experience). The other thing to note is that, if after getting your degree you wish to come and practice in India then you will need to give some examinations if your degree is not certified by the Medical Council of India. To see if the institute you want to study is certified by the council, you can take a look at this website http://www.mciindia.org/InformationDesk/ForStudentstoStudyAbroad.aspx. Irrespective of the things mentioned here, you must realize that Orchid is a profit making foundation and it is very wise to know everything you can before you make a choice. The best thing would be to try and talk to other students who have opted for Orchid or who are thinking about opting for Orchid. Once you have a clear idea of everything then you can go ahead considering all the factors.

Study the topics in syllabus in depth from the guide books and text books of your optional subjects. Collect two-three guide books from market to help in your preparation. Make a habit of reading news paper regularly at least one National preferably ?The Hindu? and one local for current affairs. 4.

Current Education: n/a
Marks: na
Aim: na

Answer: We are so glad to receive your query. There are lot of students who secure less than 40% in graduation. But eventually they get engaged in some or other professions. Graduation mark can't decide your future; it is your continuous effort and hard work that only matters. Your query is missing one part- what kind of job you want to do. There are various kinds of job having different eligibility criterion. You should not and can not apply for those where required mark is greater than 40%. We can't tell you right away which jobs need more and which needs less percentage. You need to check that on job to job basis. Have you considered other options as well? How about appearing for betterment of marks? If you get unexpected mark in a subject, have you done an RTI of your answer script? Have you thought about doing any business? How about getting some IT skills and apply for computer programmer/web developer type of jobs? Do you know about Skill Development programme of Govt of India? Please search about National Rural Livelihood Mission (www.nrlmbl.aajeevika.gov.in/) and National Skill Development Mission (msde.gov.in/nationalskillmission.html). There are lot of opportunities for all kinds of students- with good marks, as well with lower marks. You need to explore the options. We would really request to visit any Skill development centres and know about what kind of courses you can take that will give instant job opportunities. We wish you the best.
