    And yet we participate in the games.

    Why are indian institutions such crap? It's either IIT/IISC or the deep dark pits of educated society.

    btw, I wrote the IISC exam.........complete waste of 1000 rupees. I could only answer my name
    Even iitians aren't getting paid well. Even I attend fiitjee and now I feel I wasted my money and I lost in interest in engineering so I am planning to take economics/finance in UK

    I gave the KVPY too! Qualified, just about, and waiting for the interview. IISc is SUCH a beautiful place, shame its only got 120 seats.
    How in the good name...........?

    Did you study cbse syllabus? the only section I could answer was biology because there's an overlap.

    I respect IISC, it's the only institution which focusses on research. IIT too.

    I'm an International student from India, and I've been offered admission to a 4 year course in Biochemistry at University College, Oxford. Now I really really want to go, because my country has very limited opportunities for research, but my full four year fees comes up to about 170000 GBP (everything included), which is WAY more than I can possibly afford. Is there any sort of financial assistance available to me? I know there are the Reach and Simon and June Li scholarships, but those are very limited in number. Can anyone help me?
    You should set up a GOFUNDME account for people to donate money to your costs

    I'm an international student from india too!

    I want to study physics for 4 years in UoStAndrews but i can't afford it

    It's coming to about 105000 GBP. (approx Rs. 17 lakhs a year, if you know what I mean, excluding travel, which'll add a few extra Rs. 100000, here and there)

    I simply can't afford it. My father works a pretty decent job and we live comfortably, so I don't even know if we're eligible for it, but there's no way my father can afford it, since he has to save for his own old age, health etc. Having to pay my fees would mean them living on bare minimum and I couldn't do that.

    You can start a fund raiser by setting up a GOFUNDME account for people to donate to the costs.

    ISC. Possibly the only indian board I respect, and some of the state ones.

    ISC is tougher than CBSE from what I hear. So I'm not surprised. Well, at least you have that to fall back on.

    Damn that's great! For social science based applicants we need to attend a test called TSA for Oxford and after that we get interview plus we also need a great letter to recommendation

    I think it is a great idea if you do.

    Just explain how India has limited research opportunities so, studying abroad would fulfil your life ambition in your personal profile.

    people will start donating.

    Education is a human right and it is really sad that people can't further their education because they were not born wealthy.

    You've finished your exam? It's in March, isn't it?

    I've heard CBSE maths is tougher, but science in ISC is terribly difficult.
