I failed my BTech title. Are there short-term undergraduate courses?

I am a software engineer working in one of the leading and fastest growing IT service companies in India. I am very happy with my project and I want to continue working here as long as possible. I also failed my engineering and completed my undergraduate course in 5 years. No one in the industry asks you how long it took you to complete your degree, as long as you complete it and move on in your life. You should also complete your degree and not think of taking any other course. I hope this helps :)

I am a software engineer working in one of the leading and fastest growing IT service companies in India. I am very happy with my project and I want to continue working here as long as possible. I also failed my engineering and completed my undergraduate course in 5 years. No one in the industry asks you how long it took you to complete your degree, as long as you complete it and move on in your life. You should also complete your degree and not think of taking any other course. I hope this helps :)

Edit: I am now studying for a master's degree in business analysis at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA I think life has opened many doors for me. I will certainly advise anyone reading this, DON'T GIVE UP !!!

unfortunately education is still the main key to A) job / career B) PG courses ... well try few open schools, or IGNOUs, but they require certain criteria to be met. Whatever you do, make sure it is recognized by UGC.

I am apt to answer this question, because I know many people, some really smart ones, who have ruined their lives hopelessly, but have made a perfectly fine recovery. What you think is completely ruining your life is actually a detour you took to find out the value of your own life.


Why do we screw it all up? Because deep down we know that no matter how much it ruins my life, I am capable enough to fix it.

Now coming back to you, friend, you are 25 years old, you are far from ruining your life. If you have ruined something in something, at most it would be these 4 years of your life.

I am apt to answer this question, because I know many people, some really smart ones, who have ruined their lives hopelessly, but have made a perfectly fine recovery. What you think is completely ruining your life is actually a detour you took to find out the value of your own life.


Why do we screw it all up? Because deep down we know that no matter how much it ruins my life, I am capable enough to fix it.

Now coming back to you, friend, you are 25 years old, you are far from ruining your life. If you have ruined something in something, at most it would be these 4 years of your life.

Think of it now as instead of being 25, you are 21 and instead of graduating in 8 years, you would have graduated in 4.

Think of yourself who has slept 4 years and woke up today and done what you would have done 4 years ago.

Here's a reason why you feel like you've ruined your life.
All of your batchmates are high, earning well enough, in stable relationships, some maybe getting married. This makes you feel like a total loser.

Now forget about everyone else and think about yourself in 4 years. You will have a job, a relationship, and the life you want.

Basically, what you have lost is 4 years and nothing more. In the grand scheme of things, it doesn't matter. Of course, you will initially be behind, but you will soon catch up.

-------------------------------------------------- -----------------------------
Now the advice part.

What can you do to unscrew your life?

Get yourself a graph paper or a blackboard and write down your ambition. Something you want to achieve.

First things first, money is most important. It makes other things easier. If you have enough money, you can acquire skills, buy things, travel, basically do whatever you want.

Now that you have a title, there are two options for making money. Look for a job in the government or look for a job in the private sector.

It doesn't matter if you did your engineering in 8 years or 10, you can always get a job in the field that you graduated from. Just run as a refresher, host interviews, and be honest about how you ruined your life and tell them you'd do your best to unscrew it. Most likely they will hire you.

Now coming into the government sector, there are many job openings and government jobs have incredible salaries and benefits compared to the private sector. The easiest exams in the government sector are Banking and Insurance. Every year there are about 40,000 vacancies, if you prepare for about 6-8 months, you are good to go. The upper age limit for the general category for government services is 30 years. So you have another 5 years to get a job.

Once you have a job, your parents, family and neighbors will stop scrutinizing you and you will have a certain level of confidence and peace in your life.

Then you can look to make something of yourself and develop the required skills. You can diversify your interests in Business or Startups or whatever you want to do.

So basically what did you really screw up? Any. You still have everything you need to do what you want.

If there is anything else you would like to know, you can always ask.

Good luck with your life.

It won't be of much help unless you do a master's degree in a very specialized domain that interests you and that too from a reputable university. Also, I suggest you have an MA outside of India.
Another aspect to consider is if you are considering a master's degree to increase your chances of landing a job. It won't do much good. Most companies have a training period when you join them, which is not related to what is taught in most private universities. So they prefer a B.Tech student for jobs as they would have to pay them less.

So they prefer a B.Tech student for jobs as they would have to pay them less.
You say it's been two years since you looked for a job. There are few things on my mind that I would like you to consider. You should not look at the salary portion when you are starting your first job. Even if it is just an internship, I suggest you take it. You could work to get a permanent job at that company. It's perfectly okay to start low to build on your experience.
Also, you need to understand that you will have to answer in most interviews about what you have done in the two years.
If you are interested in doing M.Tech, you can do one of two things.
One, you could do an M.Tech and get a teaching job at an engineering school. Consider doing an M.Tech from the same university you did your B.Tech from and see if they suck it up on the faculty panel.
Personally, I suggest you do this only if you are interested in teaching.
Two, you could prepare for the GATE exam and open your opportunities to an M.Tech and also a job at the various PSUs.
On the other hand, if you want to change your flow completely, you can go for an MBA or any other program / course that really interests you.

First you need to cool down.

Each one has a purpose, you must find yours.

Finish your career first, it's more important.

Go find the field you love, if you've taken BTech, then finish it, graduate, specialize in any particular field relevant to your stream, and apply for a job opening and go for it.

Do master's studies, it will be of more help for your career.

Everyone here feels useless, because we are in a society where our dreams, our abilities, have no value, you must do what you love, you must educate yourself to survive in this fast-moving world.

Just go for

Just take a long trip, empty your mind, read self-help books, don't waste time on social media like Facebook, Insta, etc.

Take a few free online courses that are relevant to your degree.

I assume you are 24 years old, you must be graduated but I think you are behind, just try to finish it.

Apply for a job and do it.

Good luck…

It depends from person to person. If you enjoyed your time during college, then there was one more year to enjoy college life.

But, if you didn't, then it would be difficult to accept what you wasted in your unused year. And when you compare yourself to others, you always feel guilty. It is only during college time or 1-2 years after you have completed your degree.

Believe me, after 4-5 years, it would not have any impact on your normal life. In case you joined the government sector or set up your own business then it won't make sense - you did it at B.tech in 4-5 years. But

Believe me, after 4-5 years, it would not have any impact on your normal life. In case you joined the government sector or set up your own business then it won't make sense - you did it at B.tech in 4-5 years. But in case you are in the private sector, the interviewer may ask you at some point: what was the reason for completing B.tech in 5 years.

I am telling you an example of mine. I didn't do B.tech in 5 years, but I wasted my 1 year persuading the plastic engineering diploma that I dropped after a year. So technically it can be said that I completed my B.tech after 5 years of my internship. And one of my friends joined B.tech shortly after intermission. He completed his B.tech 1 year before me. But I'm still in a good position than him.

Therefore, do not compare yourself with others as it will only give you pain and sadness. Just enjoy your 5 wonderful years of your college life and make them memorable for later life.


First, I will limit my response to the "factual" possibility that you conduct this review. Yes, you "can" take it. As has been repeated over and over again, you have examples like Gaurav Agrawal, Shubhra Saxena madam, etc., etc. and most recently Ira Singhal ma'am, that age is just a number and school and college grades just don't matter.

But I gather that you already understand and are asking about the "probability" of being selected. That my friend nobody can predict. You say that you are weak in math and that you like to read. That makes you similar to about 60% of the crowd that takes this test.

But I gather that you already understand and are asking about the "probability" of being selected. That my friend nobody can predict. You say that you are weak in math and that you like to read. That makes you similar to about 60% of the crowd that takes this test. Hell that makes you similar to me. So keep reading about this exam, commit to it, make your opinions, create your strategies, prepare and go kill. What prospects do you have questions? It beats me. Wish I could answer that! What I can tell you is that if you are willing to give 100%, your chances are as good as anyone else's.

ps My personal suggestion is that you don't treat this exam like just another job. That motivation won't last long. Try to find your reasons for being a civil servant ... selfish / disinterested doesn't matter. Imagine yourself in that position. Let that longing fill you. You are less likely to lose focus. Good luck.

The basic difference between a B.Tech and a polytechnic engineering course is that a B.Tech is an undergraduate course, while a Polytechnic is a diploma in engineering.

  • You can opt for a polytechnic course just after the 10th or it can also be done after the 12th. But you cannot opt ​​for B.Tech only after the 12th with physics, chemistry and mathematics as compulsory subjects. The duration of a polytechnic course is at least 3 years but you can make a lateral entry in polytechnic if you have done ITI for which the duration of the course will then be 2 years. Admissions are based on the polytechnic entrance exam whi

The duration of a polytechnic course is at least 3 years but you can make a lateral entry in polytechnic if you have done ITI for which the duration of the course will then be 2 years. Admissions are based on the Polytechnic entrance exam that occurs in the month of May or June, in some states the polytechnic schools also take direct admission into the 3-year diploma course.
  • For B.Tech the duration of the course is 4 years, but a side entry can be made directly to the second year if a person has taken a polytechnic course. Admissions are based on JEE ranking and some other colleges and universities conduct their own entrance exams.
  • Polytechnics (Diplomas in Engineering) can be those who cannot afford to obtain an engineering degree and need to get a job as soon as possible.
  • There is an entrance test for admission to the Polytechnic, also an entrance test is mandatory for admission to the Degree in Engineering (BTech or BE).

Hope this will help you.

All the best

Yes, you are eligible for both exams! But you must not have any active backwardness while joining MTech at IITs especially because you will be rejected due to your backwardness and you must also have completed your degree before going to higher education, let me tell you something. PSUs prefer M.tech students over those of Btech and they receive few more qualifications in the interviews, so their chances of selection are lower and if you have an active accumulation or do not have a degree at that time, you have no chances.

Why would it be ???? B. The technology is supposed to be 5 years old! ... that's right ... so why would that be a problem? ... there is no problem. Camp takes place in the fifth year ... so I don't think it's a problem. Now my cousin completed his b. technology of a government. college and it took him 5 years. I don't know if your university has any other process, but if it doesn't then there should be no problem. Be positive.

Best of luck!

Failed media? How? Did you become 'Unsuitable for Technique (NFT)' or have you just returned / ATKT?

If you became an NFT, you can take any other non-technical course at any university in India.

You can always start a business. The options are limitless.

If you just got an ATKT, don't worry, most guys get them from time to time. You will erase it in the next semester.

Stop worrying and take a look at the Diploma in Nautical Sciences and become a sailor.

Quickly apply for the Deck cadet course. The age limit is 25 years to apply. Do it quickly and you won't worry until you retire.

It's a waste after 30 years. but Deck cadet will become the title of a ship for 35 years and everything is tax-free for the merchant marine, 6 months he works on a ship traveling all the places knowing different cultures and 5 months of vacation and nobody will call him back until the end of 5 months.

The important thing is that the IIMs will give a special point to the people of the merchant marine and you can in a moment

The important thing is that the IIMs will give a special point to the people of the merchant marine and at one point you can read GMAT and apply for the general administration course for 1 year at IIM.
