Worried about selecting a graduation project?
I have seen students doing a literature review over and over on multiple topics and remain undecided when they have to pinpoint a single topic. This is not because of a lack of interest or focus but due to overthinking. They are too worried that they think of multiple things. But while working on multiple things, their way of thinking becomes too broad and they will be confused.

Are you into Optometry?
I have been a small-town girl till my Intermediate and had joined Optometry because I couldn’t get into MBBS like many other students. My family saw this as a better opportunity than a common degree or a paid MBBS. I have passed out Integrated Masters in Optometry and Vision Sciences recently and was astonished by the ample of opportunities waiting for us. I never regretted making the decision to join in Optometry. Not just finishing the course with good grades I had also learned a lot of life lessons during this period of my life.
