PLIGHT OF DESERVING STUDENT
The cut-offs for university admissions have been soaring every year like the price of petrol in our country. Every year, scores of students try their best to clear the impossibly high cut-off rates which seem to rise with every passing year. Corruption and avarice in the educational system as well as the scarcity of seats in university courses have lead to the present condition. This causes frustration and despair among the students. The government should shun their callous attitude and take up this problem seriously. They should concentrate on either starting more recognised courses or increasing the number of batches so that the deserving students can get a chance to contribute towards building our nation.
