Polytechnic Admission Test (PAT)- 2018, Assam, [Apply now]

Hello fellas, Time for some great career perspective News(Especially, for those students who want to get connected with science). Let me ask you fellas- After HSLC now what is your plan? If you achieve remarkable marks, then well-known colleges will be waiting for you to take admission. But what if you are unable to get that mark somehow? Many student targets for Engineering and Medical as their career options after HSSLC. After HSSLC a student must be able to choose their career goal. Most of the People today choose medical/ engineering as their last hope of taking JOBS. Do you guys know Polytechnic is another popular branch nowadays for career point of view? Every year the state Government Institute of Polytechnic held PAT exam. This year also PAT 2018 entrance exam is going to held on 20 May 2018.

Those who want to relate themselves with the technical background and have not the qualified the minimum percentage for taking admission in Science stream can apply for the Polytechnic course. Which is most required Diploma Course from JOB point of view. In the various field like Railways, Power plant, Refinery etc. required candidates having diploma course. However, I never encourage anyone to not take Engineering and Medical as a Career Point of View. Please note that!    As an Engineer, I would like to say that without any passion for doing what you don’t even want is a waste of time. Moreover, Engineering/ Medical has great influence in our day to day life. But Choose wisely your career goals.
