It was an academic carnival for students, parents

Santhosh Kumar, a student from Tumkur, had come to Bangalore to attend the sessions on CET counselling, which he knew would be important for his career. “With the announcement of results I had many doubts about the CET counselling and the whole process. Despite making calls to the KEA, I did not get any response, but the Gnana Degula interactive session provided all the information a candidate needs to know,” Santhosh said.

About 50 stalls, which were put up in the education fair, provided a plethora of information on alternative careers for students. Rakesh S K, a parent who accompanied his daughter to interactive session said, “The stalls put up are informative, and the details about various institutions are readily available for visitors. The information about alternative careers - like animation and design for creative students - is an eye opener, as we as parents push children to opt for professional courses instead of knowing their interests. The interactive session on CET was very helpful. Last year it was a one-day event focussing only on CET, but this year, the stalls are beneficial for students”.

Anupama Shetty, a student, said, “The stalls on animation, design and courses in Europe were helpful. Information on how to enrol for the undergraduate courses was also available at the premises. The education fair was a one-stop solution with all details about various institutes and the CET interactive session available under one roof. The two-day fair is plus point for us students as we can benefit on both the days about higher education.”
