I approached each round with confidence.” Keerthi has been hired to work on data visualization.
When explaining her decision to choose UVCE, Keerthi mentioned two key factors. Firstly, she emphasized that UVCE was an affordable option for her. Additionally, she highlighted that there was comparatively less academic pressure in the institution.
Keerthi shared that she had a rank of 4,000 in the Karnataka Common Entrance Test and had the opportunity to secure admission in some renowned private colleges. However, she made a deliberate decision to wait until the final round to secure a seat in UVCE. The primary reasons for her choice were the comparatively lower fees and the student-friendly atmosphere, which offered a sense of freedom for students.
