Q: I live in the State of Maharashtra (Pune city) in India, and am currently enrolled in a high school there. When I graduate from high school I will have completed my HSC (12th Grade exam).

I have two questions:

(1) Do you know what the minimum requirements are from each Indian State or high school affiliation for university admission in Computer Science or Computer Engineering? If so, what is the minimum cutoff for a person who has completed his/her HSC exam in Pune, Maharashtra?

(2) What are the minimum academic, as well as non-academic, requirements for a graduate of a high school in India to be admitted to a US university for undergraduate studies in Computer Science or Computer Engineering?


EXPLAINING THE QUESTION

The question is about the transition from high school to university by graduates of high schools in India. The high-school student who asked this question is from Pune City in the Indian State of Maharashtra.

To learn more about the State of Maharashtra, see

http://www.maharashtra.gov.in/english/community/community_geo_profileShow.php; and
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maharashtra (though, like all Wikipedia entries, it is subject to change at any time).

The question mentions the HSC exam for graduates of high schools. In India the term "high school" is used in many ways and is sometimes ambiguous. The 9th and 10th grades (also known in India as Classes IX and X) form an educational unit that ends with the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examinations, or board examinations. The 11th and 12th grades form another educational unit ("junior college" or "higher secondary school") which is often offered by a separate institution. Studies in this unit culminate in a series of examinations for the Higher Secondary (School) Certificate, or HSC (for more information, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_school#India)

Usually each State in India has its own education board, and exams differ from State to State. There is also a Central board of Education with which some high schools are affiliated.

Most the university-level schools or colleges in each city in India are affiliated with a single university; for example, in Mumbai (Bombay) there are more than 30 engineering colleges that are affiliated with Bombay University. All the colleges within the Bombay University network administer the same exams during the academic year. For a list of schools affiliated with Pune University, see http://www.unipune.ac.in/affiliated_colleges_and_institutions/default.htm

Admission applications are made to individual colleges within the city, and each one of the colleges has its own minimum admission requirements (which depend also on the specific field of study desired by the candidate).

Some more prestigious ("National level") Universities in India administer their own entry standardized tests, and admissions to these schools are largely based on the individual results of these standardized tests. See for example the following link on entrance exams to the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT): http://www.indiaresults.com/Career_Guidance/IIT/

There are many websites on higher education in India. We happen to like http://www.educationinfoindia.com/ and http://indiaedu.com/.
ANSWER TO THE FIRST QUESTION:

Q: Do you know what the minimum requirements are from each Indian State or high school affiliation for university admission in Computer Science or Computer Engineering? If so, what is the minimum cutoff for a person who has completed his/her HSC exam in Pune, Maharashtra?

A: The threshold for admission to a Computer Science and Computer Engineering programs (or any other program) is usually based on two criteria: (1) the candidate's cumulative score on Physics, Chemistry and Math (PCM) in the HSC (12th grade) exams, and (2) the overall percentage of marks received in the HSC exams. The maximum cumulative total for the PCM is currently 300, and, for example, cutoffs to very ood colleges in Mumbai are in the range of 292-300 for Computer Engineering and Computer Science. The reason for these very high thresholds is the large number of applicants.

We do not know what the cutoffs are for universities in the Pune area (these are not usually published). If we are able to find more information on this specific subject (or if one of our readers sends us the information) we will update this answer.

One way to find an answer to this question is to speak to admissions officers in universities and colleges affiliated with Pune University. The list of these colleges can be found here: http://www.unipune.ac.in/affiliated_colleges_and_institutions/default.htm. It appears that the best way to obtain a baccalaureate degree from Pune University is through one of the affiliated colleges.

ANSWER TO THE SECOND QUESTION

Q: What are the minimum academic, as well as non-academic, requirements for a graduate of a high school in India to be admitted to a US university for undergraduate studies in Computer Science or Computer Engineering?

A: The basic factors used by US universities for Computer Science and Computer Engineering are quite similar, but the numerical thresholds vary widely. You should have obtained (or will have obtained shortly) a high school degree with three (3) years of advanced mathematics, including Calculus. For typical requirements of courses within the high school curriculum, see the links at the end of this section. In addition you will need to arrange for your SAT (or ACT) and TOEFL grades to be sent to the universities you are applying for. You should investigate the type of SAT tests requires by your prospective university, some universities have additional test requirements for
international students (such as certain SAT II tests that are not required of domestic students).

Though most admission officers in mainstream US universities are familiar with the grading system in India, it may help if you emphasized in cover letters your rank in class and even in specific subjects. Grades that appear to the US administrator or academic as �low� can actually be quite high in the Indian system, as reflected by the fact that the grade holder is at the top of his/her class in the subject.

A sense of what admission officers in US universities are looking for in an application can be obtained here:

http://coe.berkeley.edu/students/prospective-students/admissions/freshman-faq.html
http://www.umass.edu/admissions/application_process/Requirements/
http://www.umass.edu/admissions/applying/international/
http://www.uiowa.edu/admissions/undergrad/requirements/fy-eng.html

Admission to US universities at the undergraduate level usually requires proof of financial means to meet tuition and living cost needs. This proof is required by the school who would admit you and by US immigration authorities as a condition to admission to the US. In addition, there is a procedure of document exchange between you and the school, and then between you and consulate/embassy of the US in India, to issue a student visa (usually under category F-1). A personal interview with a Consulate official may be required. Our main advice is to allot significant amount of time to these procedures because the involved decision makers (in both university and consulate offices) are notoriously slow.

Q: I write from the state of Maharashtra in India. I have a choice of studying for a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Electronics and Telecommunication in one of two colleges. The first is located 5 minutes away from my house. The second is Sardar Patel College of Engineering (SPCE), one of the best in Mumbai. However, if I go to SPCE, I will need one hour daily to commute there.

Once I earn the B.E. degree I want to do graduate-level work in aerospace engineering or work in the aerospace industry (either in India or in North America).

Which of the two colleges should I choose?
