Is dropping out 1 or 2 yrs.in graduation gonna make problem

  1. Jun 8, 2015 #1
    I'm a student of Calcutta university, doing graduation, I've dropped a year due to bad result. Though next year I manage to get apparently good marks. But one of my Friends was still unsatisfied and choose to try one more time.
    And now, we're worried a little bcz someone told us this gonna make problem when we'll want to parsue higher study in Physics or try for a job.
    So, my question is, do we really have to face problems later in carrier? And what is the minimum percentage to be attained for higher study or applying job?

    First, you posted this in "member introductions only" where questions are not allowed.

    Second, you are talking about India, many people here have no idea about the school system in India and what is acceptable. I've moved your thread to Academic Guidance in case someone from India can answer your question.

    Please read the rules and please pay attention to where you post.

    Thank you.

    If I understand your question, you have repeated a year of your undergraduate education in order to improve your grades and you're wondering how that will impact your future chances for admission to graduate school and beyond.

    It's difficult to really answer this because without knowing your reason for repeating the year. If, for example, you were having a medical problem that prevented you from attending lectures or studying, then repeating a year is unlikely to have much of an effect on an application. However, if you just repeated a year because you weren't happy with your grades that brings in a little more uncertainty. If your grades weren't sufficient to get admission into the graduate program you wanted, then you don't really have many options other than either repeating or doing something different. But if you really needed to take several courses multiple times in order to understand the material, then that could be a flag you're heading in the wrong direction.
