Undergrad Admission Counseling

The decision to pursue undergrad abroad could be taxing as there are a wide range of options available across the world. But, definitely, you can deny the perks of pursuing your bachelors from the USA. For instance, in the US educational system, the standard time duration of a bachelor’s degree is 4 years, but you can complete it between 3-5 years depending on your credit points. Another benefit is - the flexibility to choose your courses. Students who are pursuing their undergraduate in the USA can change majors as late as the beginning of 3rd year and can also mix and match majors based on their preferences. Some universities also provide options for continuing education with MS or direct Ph.D. thereafter. For countries like Australia, there is no such facility as they have 3 years of an undergraduate degree and 4 years of engineering degree. Information like this could be vital for deciding upon the program, university, and country.

SAT - Your Key to Undergraduate Admission in the USA

SAT is a vital part of the undergraduate admission process along with the IELTS/TOEFL language proficiency test score for top study abroad destinations. SAT, conducted by the College Board, is a measure of a student’s eagerness and academic inquisitive nature. Most of the universities overseas mandate SAT scores and use it as a tool to compare the student applications. Along with SAT score, the other requisites for bachelor’s degree admission in the USA are: your GPA, extra-curricular activities, essays, LORs and SOPs. This is where our counsellors come into picture. They analyse students’ strengths and weaknesses before suggesting program choices and guide them through the entire process. We conduct aptitude evaluation sessions and help them understand the international education system, programs, and areas of specialisation. We prepare aspirants to stand out among the stiff competition and stern selection criteria of top universities with profile building and preparing university applications.
