'I see an increasing number of applicants who apply abroad just to have a viable option as a backup,' says Mrinalini

"For example, an admission abroad consultant, I see an increasing number of applicants who apply abroad just to have a viable option as a backup. In recent years, many have actually leveraged on the backup option as it promised a better college education than what they would have managed in India given the high cutoffs. Our advice to parents with kids in class 10 and above has always been to have their children take the SAT at the earliest; this allows students to keep backup options abroad should they change their mind later in the process. Even if they choose to study in India, there are colleges such as Ashoka University where the SAT results preclude the need to take their admissions test," said Mrinalini.

Career Counsellor Mrinalini Batra's take on admission in foreign colleges

"The admissions process for the US begins in earnest a good 12 months ago so it would be rare to find a great program that is still accepting applications. Also, keep in mind that you need to apply for a visa even after admission. One, it is a process which requires you to have some time in hand and secondly, most countries are becoming increasingly strict in processing student visas. The most recent here is the UK which has removed India from the group of countries which are in the ‘low risk’ category," Mrinalini Batra said .
