- Renukaji, how do you compare the educational opportunities available in our country with that in US after 12th Board exams? Don't you think in the last decade or so there is a lot of improvement in this area? Asked by: Shyam Vadalker

The US application system is also more student friendly as it adopts a holistic perspective on student capabilities. One of the greatest strengths of the undergraduate system is its flexibility, where students are free to declare their major only in the second year of study, and study subjects outside their declared major.
