#Myth in Engineering

The first myth in India which makes people orthodox and people follow it blindly is that, if a person needs to have a good job or profile or need to spend his or her future comfortably, then the person needs to be an engineer and other graduation degree is nothing except for medical and law. The second myth which generally destroys the thinking capacity, innovative ideas of a student is that the student pursuing engineering needs to maintain 8.00 CGPA, them only the student is intelligent and is capable of working in any industry or corporation. The third myth is the mark of the student are very important and people scoring marks more than 90 percent in higher education are the true reflection of intelligence. The fourth myth which is very much common and many students take it seriously and destroy their career is that students from vernacular medium cannot prosper because of the influence of their mother tongue while they speak or write. Students who have passed from English medium are more intelligent.

Well, myth is just the opposite of reality and most of the facts stated above are ignored in the education system of the modern world.
