The end of 10+2 exams mark a period of never ending discussions between a parent and a child. There are certain questions that need to be answered when it comes to deciding which career to choose.

Here is a way in which you can decide which is the best undergraduate program for you:

1. How to Decide Upon the Location?

Deciding upon the location is the most important thing to do before settling for a college. Supposedly, you start with North and analyzing its pros and cons, you don’t want to settle with it. Now coming to Central and East, maybe you don’t find good enough colleges. That leaves you with the West zone. And when looking for a college in the west part of India, why not opt for an undergraduate program in Pune?

Pune rightly known as ‘Oxford of the East’ can become your best bet for a promising career.

2. Which college should you choose?

Now that you have decided upon the city, it is imperative to decide upon the best colleges in Pune for undergraduate program and register for their entrance tests. While looking for a college, you basically need to look for the placement opportunities provided by the college, ranking of the college, the location, and what all career opportunities can the college provide. And the one university in Pune that offers all these is Symbiosis. So pursuing a Symbiosis undergraduate program turns out to be the best option.

3. How to Seek Admission in Symbiosis?

It is conducted by Symbiosis International University through which a student can gain admission in any one of the 14 different institutes of Symbiosis. It is an objective test the duration of which is 150 minutes.

4. Are the registrations still open?

Yes, SET registrations are still open. The registration is open till 13th of April, 2017. The last date of payment of SET registration fee is 17th of April, 2017.
