Qualifying Exams to Study Abroad
Going abroad for further studies has always been regarded as an enriching and challenging experience. Along with a rewarding career and better future the students also get to experience new cultures, customs and ideas that mould their personalities as a whole.
Depending upon the level and course of study, students need to take one or more qualifying exams for entry into academic programs abroad.
More and more Indian students are going abroad to study year after year - mainly because they're unable to get a seat in a college of their choice for a course they want. The UNESCO 2012 statistics show that there were 1.89 lakh Indian students studying abroad. As of 2016, this number is estimated to be at least 2.5 lakh.
