    Query about ITI, two years diploma and lateral entry

    Have a query about doing ITI and Diploma and then going for a lateral entry into engineering? Searching for a resolution to your worries online? Find advice from experts here.

    I have done my two years ITI in Mechanical trade and 1 year apprenticeship in the respective trade. I have further continued my studies into diploma which gave me admission into lateral entry scheme { i.e ITI+ two years diploma in lateral entry}. I have completed it this year 2017.
    But now my worries and doubts have started rolling out. Firstly I didn't get admission into BTech through ECET entrance exam saying that it is not a valid diploma. Secondly I could not apply for any jobs on the basis of ITI lateral entry. I request you to suggest me about what to do further. Being from a poor family I cannot go through court cases which is expensive and too lengthy. Can you provide me with a solution?
