How to change your College/Stream after First Year Engineering
Now-a-days many students, and their parents, who are looking for degree courses in engineering often come up with the same query (even before the candidate has begun studying engineering). But for some the confusion arises while they are pursuing their first year studies. Since there is no standard procedure for the 'change', we thought of jotting down some options which have worked in the past.
1. Switching a Stream in the Same College:
There are two requirements and one should meet both so as to stand a chance of getting your wish granted. Firstly, there should be a vacancy in the stream you want to switch to and you need to have scored good marks because the college administration is not up for all the extra work behind you (or even entertain you) just because you fancy to change your stream. Being a topper might just help here (The admin staff seems to perceive a bright HALO over students with good marks; more the marks brighter the HALO).
2. Change of College (preferably in the same stream):
Well, this one is certainly less probable to happen but there is no harm in trying, right? You must have by now realised the importance of marks to be heard, so being the topper will obviously be important. Coming to the numbers; since the college has a fixed number of students to intake, and after the first year, even the nerds from Diploma join in. So after all that drama and some students who brilliantly manage to drop-out after the first year creating some more room for you, you might have a chance to sneak into that seat.
