An Engineering Aspirant's Plight Today

"I need to prepare for CET and JEE.
My college does not teach that.
My college teaches for XII Boards only.
But XII Boards marks have zero weightage.
Despite all this, Govt has made it compulsory for me to attend college.
For CET + JEE coaching, I need to join private classes too which advises me to study for atleast 6 hours daily at home without compromising on sleep.
Honestly, I don't need to attend college besides Practicals as I don't learn anything new in college since my classes cover everything.
Why is the Government making college attendance compulsory ? "

Is the Government listening ? Do they understand the plight of a student ?
Making policies based on pseudo-socialistic ideologies leads only to the suffocation of the student. Instead of talking only about student-centric education, Govt better do a reality check and make amends.
Either improve the quality of education in junior colleges drastically OR get out of the way and grant students freedom to attend at will. Compulsory attendance borders on cruelty to students.

NB: 80% of Junior Science college students in India happen to be Engineering aspirants !!!

The pandemic triggered a shift from offline in-person education to online education across the world since March 2020. Now that, almost 20 months have transpired, it is worth analysing the impact of online education on the students community. After collating data from various stakeholders like teachers, students, parents, academic staff etc working across the cross-sections of the education industry, the following key observations have been crystallised : There is near unanimity on the view that Teaching is more effective in offline mode as compared to online mode. Though live interactive online lectures plus recordings offsets to a large extent the relative advantage of offline lectures over online lectures, the online teaching has proved quite ineffective for students who lack sincerity. The eye-to-eye interaction between the teacher and student in offline in-person mode ensures that all students (sincere and insincere) are in the loop which often does not happen in online mode where

JEE v/s MHT-CET debate is about Excellence v/s Mediocrity (Special Article on Engineering Entrance Exams Scenario)

In the past 11 years since 2004, the criterion for admissions into the Engineering colleges of Maharashtra has been a field of constant change and experimentation by the decision makers in Maharashtra Government. Every State Education Minister and Government has been changing the rules of the game at whim often with vague or short notice thereby creating an air of nervous uncertainty leaving lacs of students, parents and also teachers in a state of perpetual confusion and chaos. This article delves deeply into the various elements of educational philosophy, academic content & objectives, economics and broad political ideologies which are at play due to which this matter remains unsettled so far.

Before getting into the nuances of the elements at play, let us first examine the changes in
