Saniya Banu, a II PUC student aspiring to become a doctor, came all the way from the Coastal City just to attend the fair and keep her abreast of the wide ranging avenues.

Saniya says her uncle informed her about the fair. “That’s when I decided to rush to Bangalore to attend the session,” Saniya said. And she did not regret it. She described the session “highly informative” and said that it helped her to finally make a decision.

Saniya’s was not an isolated case. For, many other students too turned up from other parts of the State.

Parents benefitted

The event also enlightened parents. They saw many more opportunities for their children than what they thought existed.

Nagaraj, one such parent, said: “We came across a lot of options available. Frankly, we were not aware of the existence of so many branches in a particular field. The session was truly worthwhile.”

While some students have written only one entrance exam, Shwetha Chandrashekar and a few of her batchmates have appeared for CET as well as Comed-K. Shwetha said: “This lecture confirmed my decision to write both the tests.” Like many others who attended the event, she aspires to secure a good rank and pursue engineering.

The event was not just about lectures on academic avenues. In order to satiate students’ needs, a number of educational institutes had put up stalls and provided information on the courses being offered by them. 

Students, curious about the various courses on offer, visited the stalls and collected the information.

Ranjeet Kumar of ICFAI, Bangalore which has set up a stall, lauded the fair and said that it gave them maximum leads.

“We conduct a lot of exhibitions every year. But this one stands out as the response from students was very good.”
