AIMST 2017- A scholarship haven for students!
Author- Chandni Sharma
With majority of Examination Boards declaring their Class 10th and 12th results, the students are celebrating the outcome of all the hard work that they have been doing for the entire year. The performance scale for the 2016–17 academic year has been so high that it’s amusing.
With brains so bright, it is unfair that some students have to struggle to pursue further education, due to lack of financial resources or awareness. A lot of students, with high academic potential, are forced to keep out of institutions of their choice. But that will not be the case anymore. AIMST 2017 is here to save the day!
