Getting into IIT is quite tough sometimes. Not because you are not talented , but the reason is there are so many students. India is the youth’s country. So many young talented students don’t get selected in IITs, BITs, NIT. Then what is the solution?
- If you are CBSE student, with the very good score in your 10th, 12th. Then you can apply for NUS, NTU. If you are from other board, then you should have a JEE score. Please take a note, it is great to qualify in JEE Mains, JEE advanced. Show your JEE score only if you are qualified.
- Give SAT too. But start your preparation early. I have seen students started their JEE /SAT /BITS SAT preparations from 8th Standard.
National University of Singapore (NUS) NUS is very good and stands in top 10 Universities in the world for Engineering and technology. It is ranked 1st in Asia. There are many Indians here. Some Indians are also leading politicians in Singapore. If you can afford and you have got a scholarship, then you can go for NUS. Please keep in mind you still need to manage your living expenses.

They are dealing with the electronics waste , which is not disposable. They are trying to make use of natural resources for power generation. Aditya visited their lab. He informed me, at that time in 2013; the SLL was working on smartphone for farmers with the outer shell made up of Bamboo tree. The reason was : the plastic case of your smartphone is not environment friendly.
