How to Choose a CEED Participating College

Choosing the right college is not an easy task. Considering this, let's take a look at some of the points that candidates should take into consideration before choosing the right college:

Fee Structure

The fee structure is the most important aspect for candidates when choosing a college. It is a good idea not to settle immediately for one college. Candidates must make an informed decision after comparing the fee structure of a few colleges.

Ranking and Reviews of the College

Ranking and reviews are something the candidate should consider while making their decision. Ranks and reviews help assess an institution's quality, and it is undoubtedly an important parameter when a candidate has to fill out college applications.

Infrastructure and Basic Facilities

Infrastructure is also an important factor that plays a role in selecting a college. Candidates should consider all parameters such as the classrooms and labs, whether the college has any sports facilities, how's the canteen, etc. 


Placement is another significant aspect that cannot be overlooked. It is one of the major criteria students should look at while shortlisting a college. Reputed colleges have their placement process in place. So, looking at a particular college's rate of successful placements is an important factor.


This is where a candidate will be spending a lot of time. Candidates can get a glimpse of a particular college's campus area through pictures, or they can also choose to visit that college. They can opt for that college if the campus interests them or consider other options.

Alumni and Success Stories

The academic reputation of a college plays an important role. Therefore, it is important to consider what the alumni of a particular college have to say about it and what role the college plays in the alumni's success.
