Dear Sampath; it is great that your mind is set on doing agriculture. That too after completing your B.Tech. But, one simple question is; why? What motivates you? Does your family have any farm land? Then try your hand for around 6 months. See how it goes; then if you like it you can continue. It'll be an OJT (On the Job Training) for you. But, after 6 months; suppose you don't farming any more, then you can get back and probably do a M.Tech or search for a job. Questions like this are not easy to answer; unless I know your family background; what motivates and such other aspects.   If yo

Dear Aspirant, We could not get connected on the call. May I ask, what were you doing till October after your 12th exam? Were you enjoying your 12th result too much that you didnt bother to think about the further admissions? October is too late and colleges must have readied for their terminal / mid term examinations. How will you be able to cope up with the studies. University shall not allow admission now to a degree course like BSc.  I think it is better to visit the college in which you wish to have admitted and speak to the Principal. Best wishes

Dear Aspirant, If you are interested in Information Technology or IT Engineering career, then doing BE IT is highly recommended and not BSc IT.
