    Bsc Life science or Agriculture Engineering or wait for the NEET results 2017 for my daughter ?

    The NEET exam has virtually taken away the ecstasy and joy of scoring good marks in Intermediate and TS Eamcet. My daughter has scored 987 out of 1000 in BiPC intermediate. Then today the TS EAMCET results for Medical has been announced and she got 757 rank with score of 122/160. Over four and half lakh people wrote EAMCET this time. The way she is getting ranks making us to brace up to take right decision on her future. She says wait up to June 8th when NEET 2017 results would be announced. She is aiming at MBBS but I am advising her to go for Agriculture side which is also bright as she already got government seat for her marks. What to do ?

    First of all accept my congratulations to you for your daughter's achievements. Please convey my congratulations and best wishes to her.
    It is always advisable to give more importance to the interest of the child more than our interest. Agriculture side is also good. But as your daughter is more inclined towards, MBBS, I feel you can wait for NEET 2017 results. The way in which things are happening I feel your daughter will definitely bag a government seat in MBBS with NEET rank. MBBS is always better than post graduation in agriculture science.

    MBBS is a little costly, that part you are the best judge.

    always confident

    I hope your daughter is a bright student she will get MBBS seat in NEET exam. What about Jipmer and AIIMS exams? Previously my students got top ranks in JIPMER who are our school top 5 rankers and of them got second rank in JIPMER entrance test. Pondicherry university is top ranking university in Medicine. My strong suggestion is join only in MBBS course even in case it is one year late by taking long term course. Don't be hurry to join in Degree course. Many of my students those who failed to get good ranks and in second attempt got best ranks. All the best to your daughter for achieving good rank in State EAMCET exam which qualifies her for Ag. B.Sc. and Pharmacy courses.

    She is also writing for AIIMS on 28th June for limited seats that too centered in North India only. All these exams are prolonging our decision.

    Best wishes to your daughter. Let her join the stream in which she has genuine interest. I believe that this is the key to ultimate success in life.
    Beware! I question everything and everybody.

    I am not very sure about the scope of a degree in agriculture, so I won't comment on it. But, I do feel that she should not be made to study something that she is not keen on. It doesn't mean that she must only get into the medical line. Talk to her about the options and why she needs to decide now.

    She could, for instance, study Bio-technology, which is considered a viable choice, or something related to 'green energy' considering the world is shifting its focus towards greener options.

    If she wants to remain in the medical field she could study dentistry – it has a lot of scope. She could also specialise in nutrition and still work in the medical field.

    She has another option of dropping a year so she can concentrate on the preparation for various entrance examinations and appear next year.

    My final advice is that you meet a qualified career counsellor, so you can establish the options that are available to her. Most times parents are not aware of the different courses available and/or their scope. Members of ISC have limited knowledge and what you need at this time is someone who has wider information. A career counsellor will be able to provide better answers.

    As a parent, I do understand your dilemma. I wish your daughter the best. Don't worry, there is always something better in store. When one door closes, another opens is my belief. Tell your daughter, whatever happens, happens for the best.

    Now it is believed that National quota from TS state is limited to 15 percent and 85 percent of medical seats will be filled in for the people from Telangana for various MBBS colleges of course through NEET ranks.

    Mohan sir, if I am not wrong Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir are not eligible for 15 percent national quota. EAMCET is used for filling medical seats in Government as well as convener quota seats of private medical colleges, whereas NEET is used for filling Management seats of private medical colleges in Telangana. So, instead of waiting for NEET results, do some research on which college your daughter is going to get with 757 rank in EAMCET unless you are interested in joining your daughter in some management seat through NEET.
