Why only engineering and medicine are selected for undergraduate studies?
There continues to be a rat race for engineering and medicine degrees. What is the reason behind this? Why aren't more students opting for unconventional streams? Discuss.
I always wonder on seeing a mass of youngsters running after the IITs and reputed Medical Colleges where only a very minimal percentile of those youngsters get into the above mentioned institutions. And the remaining, with disheartened results, join the colleges which they are not interested in.
I got surprised after seeing the ground reality for preparation of these exams where the students get enrolled into the schools which teach the syllabus for IIT and medical examinations at the age of 10 literally from standard 5 or 6. The age where kids have to play are getting the syllabus of trigonometry which I learned in my tenth standard!
I feel there is a need for a change in the present education system where people are running behind the techie and doctor careers. There are many unconventional courses which actually help the people to shape their careers and in turn serve the country as well. The unconventional courses include law, entrepreneurship, journalism, cinematography and many others.
What your opinions regarding the change in the present education system in India?
