12 Things Before Starting First Year of Engineering :
You should have all the knowledge of your particular course. Take time to decide which branch you want to opt for, do enough research, and in my suggestion, you should do some basic classes available on YouTube that will give you enough idea what are you going to learn in your next 4 years.
Have a clearer idea of which college you actually want to go because once you enter into a particular college there might be an option to change college before 4 years.
Have enough knowledge of the courses provide in your institution and do ask senior or contact people from the same college to know all about good facilities and then fill the form to choose your professor.
Have brief knowledge of all your concept before entering your semester.
Learn before your professor because at the time when you will be taught you will be able to grasp concepts in a more clear manner.
DON’T keep backlogs at all because backlogs in college are something that can never be covered because the college has lots and lots of assignments and it’s going to pile up only.
Know your weak areas before entering college because when you know your strengths and weaknesses you get to work in a more concentric manner.
Try to learn from yourself also and have command in your field till the second year so that you can apply for internships that will help you with industrial knowledge as well as a brush off your concepts practically and you can also earn from it.
Don’t hang with wrong people because the company does matter, try to be around those who have a motivating and studios mentality because at college you be with that group 24/7 so it has to be with some good ones.
Try to be calm and cool in college because you don’t know who might be your help and when so it’s important to have a good relationship in college with senior to junior.
Try to practice whatever you learn in class as much as you can because college courses are way bigger than your High School course as it’s going to help you with scoring well.
Lastly, learn to enjoy your studies because you are going to work in that field later on, so it’s important to enjoy it.
