Why is a Diverse Profile important?

Before we even get there, let us first understand how the current scenario is like during university applications:

Academics: A Dead-end Zone

Scoring good grades is no longer the panacea to get into brand colleges anymore. With Board exam percentages touching 100% cut off rates for courses like B.Com, there is very little less to one’s imagination when it comes to academics.

Modern Education: Holistic Profile is KEY!

Unlike the time when just marks were looked at to secure admissions, universities today look at a range of activities in their applicants’ profiles. This includes:

  • Co-curricular and extra-curricular achievements
  • Leadership qualities
  • Volunteer work
  • Demonstrated interest towards a discipline, to name a few.

The above two factors in themselves are enough proof that high school students need to have a stronger and more diverse profile to get into that coveted college be it in India or abroad.
