Majority of students don’t know how to select college after matriculation. Post matriculation stage is an important part of one’s life and you should chose your college very wisely. In this article we shall discuss some tips for selecting a college after matriculation. Our focus will be upon admission in  government colleges in this article.

First you should join free pre first year classes as these classes will be helpful for you to familiarize with college atmosphere. Many renowned private colleges offer free pre first year classes such as Punjab college and leads group of colleges. These classes will also help you in deciding that which stream of studies will be suitable for you.  Urdu medium science students can judge during these pre result classes that can they continue with FSc where the medium of instructions will English. If in your city free pre first year classes are not available then still you should join paid pre first year classes to reach a final decision before the commencement of regular classes.



After the result if you will get good marks then apply in top three to four government colleges as per your marks. Get the information about the previous year merit of top colleges and submit the forms considering the previous year merit and your marks in matriculation. Here i want to share an incident of my student who got good marks in matric and he wanted to get admission in  government college Lahore. He  asked about the last date for buying the prospectus, he was informed that 8 September would be the last date for buying college prospectus. On 8th September he bought the prospectus and admission form and when he reached the college office on 10th September with its duly filled form, he was shocked to know that the last date for submission of forms was also 10th September. So avoid such mistakes.

Don’t take risk for waiting the second or third merit list, if there is a large difference between your marks and merit of first list. You should get admission in a the second best college where you qualify for admission in first merit list. Yes there is a risk of losing your admission fee, if you gets admission in your desired college after the announcement of second merit list, but if you will not take this risk then in case of negative result, you will have to pay the heavy fees of private colleges so the choice is yours.

Some students take admission in those subjects which don’t match with their aptitude/interests just for the sake of getting admission in a renowned college. It is a totally wrong approach as admission in renowned colleges is not a guarantee of successful career. The most important thing in career is your aptitude, so don’t stake your future for cosmetic purposes. If you are a sportsman then you should also apply on sports seats with your sports related certificates. Usually government colleges don’t grant admission to science students on sports quota. Yes, if you can afford then in spite of getting admission in any private college it will be far better for you to get admission in any renowned government or semi government college on self finance quota.
