After completing +2 examinations, generally students look forward to going for higher studies either in medical/engineering stream or any other professional course. At this stage, they get choosy about different career options. If students are choosing to go ahead with medical stream, then they need to choose the right college or institute to pursue the course. And moreover, they need to know the exact exam dates, admission dates of different institutes.
