Did You Know That 70% Of Indian Students Go To Unranked Colleges?

Did You Know That 70% Of Indian Students Go To Unranked Colleges?

As India is known for its youth population, rich culture, ancient education, and much more. We are improving day by day. From pin to plane, India is trying to do its best and adopting best practices to attain the motive of growth, happiness and goals.

Scrolling down my Twitter profile, a notification popped up: National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) released a ranking of India’s educational institutes, and this time too IIT Madras followed by all IITs topped the list of engineering colleges. I am observing for the last three years, but the ranking was the same as the first rank mark only by IITs.

Other institutes like JNU, JMI, Lady Shree Ram, BHU, VIT and other top universities/colleges are also on this list. But what about the hundreds of universities present in this country. They are invisible to the government. This disparity between the bests, best and poor will go forever.

If we see, ranked institutes are the best in education, practice, and excellence. Lakhs of students stand in the queue to be a part of these gems. But the darkest side of education resides in rural and urban cities.

Students who are enrolled in rural universities or un-ranked institutions… Are they less educated? Is the ranking institution able to provide them with the same placements? Do they have a chance to compete with the rankers? 

What About The Students From Non-Elite Colleges?

Today, when students come to metro cities to find a job, they get nervous and feel pity since they feel a sense of recognition. Some big ventures demands only those who are from national/level one colleges at the time of hiring.

Throughout data from the University Grants Commission (UGC) at present, there are 1,047 Universities which include 455 State universities, 54 central universities, 126 deemed-to-be universities and 412 private universities. But among these, why are only the central institutes are on top? That is the question before society because only 30% of students are there, rest are in unranked colleges.

In addition to the regional differences in educational options, federal education systems have different admission requirements, segregated neighborhoods, dismantled rural educational infrastructure, and expanded private education in cities, all of which contribute to educational disparities.

Along with these, some universities have a population of 5,000-10,000 students per year. But the ratio of getting jobs is limited, facing competition is limited and the important point is that they are less productive too.

Education is not a copy-paste formula, it is an involvement of everything which supports us to become a person in itself. We spent our 25 years in education to get a better lifestyle, living and earnings.

What Are Some Of The Challenges?

We live in a world where knowledge is power. One’s power increases with knowledge. Despite this, India still faces many challenges. Increasing transparency and accountability is crucial. Universities and colleges need to play a more significant role in the new millennium.

  1. Irregular Inspection

The first thing the government or higher authority should do is to inspect colleges, universities, and institutes regularly.

You may be part of the absence of professors, students, or even the administration in rural areas/semi-urban colleges. Top management is unaware of what is being done in terms of the daily routine of concepts and lessons.

They know that we have no chance of being on top since they know the truth. They prepare their own reports only when there is a team of inspectors such as the NAAC (National Assessment and Accreditation Council).

The top management is not aware of what’s involving on in terms of the daily routine of concepts and lessons.

2. Economic Factors

We all put a lot of work into the work we do. Everyone wants something in return for their work. People complain that we don’t receive enough money.

The education, earnings, and lifestyles of metro cities and rural/urban areas are drastically different.

3. Lack of World Class Representation

Now the education pattern has changed. Formerly, time was spent making notes on the board and learning that, but now, experiments or practicals are required.

If you write with tricks and crisp content instead of 1,000 words, you won’t even have to write 1,000 words. The knowledge of a particular concept is presented in 10 different ways.

The Delhi education model is changing and is based on the thinking and actions of students. It is a combination of thinking, experimenting, observing, and acting.

You have to adopt other formulas to provide better communication in education. The same as the south side education program. All universities and colleges should offer trained education, resources and an advanced level of education.

4. Change in Educational Pattern

While we celebrate 75 glorious years of freedom struggle, the government should focus on “One Nation, One Educational Pattern” in higher education. This is the era of skills-based education.

Students across India can benefit from one education model that helps them learn cultural values, gain better opportunities, and grasp learning concepts.

India needs a multidisciplinary approach to be adopted in higher education so that students’ knowledge is not limited to their subject area. In comparison with Hitech cities like Mumbai, Bangalore, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Delhi, you can see the difference.

Students here learn about artificial intelligence, coding, robotics, and other things that are vital to our future, but students all over the country are only exposed to the basics. It will take them 10 to 20 years to reach this level.

Education Must Be Equal For Everyone

At the school level, we must provide knowledge related to business, technology,shares, artificial intelligence rather than waiting for the school to complete before enrolling our children for courses.

Education is the only weapon we have to face challenges because it allows us to live happily, we can stand with others, and we can grow together.

Graduate students need to be provided with courses that will help them succeed in their studies. Moreover, they will gain a deeper understanding of the subject, which will help them get hired by companies after they have been recruited. Higher education will be less rushed as a result.

Innovation and transformational approaches are needed from primary to higher education levels in order to make the Indian education system more relevant and competitive globally.

Government and UGC must collaborate with a private institution to develop a new educational culture. By all means, we must reduce the jobless growth.
