Yes, there is obviously a difference between BCA from a reputed college and B.Tech from a 3 tier college. One needs to put in more efforts in a 3 tier college because the working environment is totally different whereas in a reputed college the cut off’s go high as a result more brainy and studious students comprise of the strength.

In a 3 tier college, you will find students who will not be much interested into studies. This can be taken as a positive point and one can work hard and also can be the topper. This will increases the chances of campus placement which is not at all a bad option. It is best to directly get placed immediately after completing your graduation. Below is the difference between a reputed college and a 3 tier college shown so that you get the insight of the colleges.

From the above differentiation, we can easily make out that a 3 tier college obviously demands more hard work. One cannot depend on the teachers, rather more research and self-study hours are required.

The point here is not to say that a 3 tier college is not that bad, but to motivate students who have taken admission in 3 Tier College to work hard. Students who work hard can also be better off placed than the students of reputed college. You can be at par with them, but all you need is hard work and determination.  

A person doing BCA from a reputed college already has good staff and better facilities. But just having this, a student cannot excel. He needs to work himself.

The teacher won’t give exams on his behalf or won’t force him to study. When you enter a college you are considered to be mature enough to know and act according to your wish. You are expected to study for longer hours and are expected to complete work on time. You are not pampered or reminded of things every now and then.

It highly depends on the students how he/she takes the college. Not all the graduates from IIT’s are highly paid and not all students from low reputed college are low paid. A journey of thousand steps starts from baby steps. Hard work never goes unrewarded. Work hard to leave no stone unturned. Stay happy and stay motivated. Happy people do not always have the best things in life, they turn the things into best. Nothing in the world should stop you from scaling new heights.

Did you find something informative in this article? What matters, in the end, is ultimately your own satisfaction. If you are happy with what you have done and are satisfied, then you are on the right path. But also your satisfaction level must be high, not that you got admission and you are satisfied. You should be satisfied by the amount of hard work you put in and the result you get.  People will always be there to mock you or make comments. Ignore them and listen to your instinct because what your heart says for the first time is always right.

Best of luck for your future and keep up the spirit.
