Geology at Academic level



Nowadays Engineering & Medical courses are a common trend for every child. Parents are not aware of or agree with the child’s capabilities.


They are simply sending their child big institutional Coaching Classes to a distant city. Such type of activity is not fruitful for every child.


There are alternative courses, which are equivalent to Engineering/Medical from low-grade Colleges. Today I am explaining Geology & IIRS and Jobs’s Concerns to it.
