Indian students struggle to enter university

Fierce competition and acute shortage of universities crush dreams for millions of young Indians.



    Millions of Indian students are stressing out about getting into their preferred universities this summer.

    Many of them will be disappointed. Competition is high and there is an acute shortage of universities and colleges in the country.

    With 35 per cent of the population under the age of 15, India's education establishments are ill-equipped to cater to millions of university hopefuls every year.
