An acquaintance of mine referred me to TICF. We thought of getting a second opinion before choice filling, since I had an AIR of 16971 in JEE-Advance. We were amazed by their skill and knowledge in choice filling, because getting into IIT-Kharagpur with 16k rank seemed impossible for any non-TICFian. They not only helped me land at IIT, but also educated me about the major in which I was enrolled and explained about flexibilities in IITs, further career path and options.

I suggest everyone to attend their Career Guidance programme at an early stage of 11th itself, to know the complete insights of admission process among all professions which will channelise you in a right way at right time.
