    Kindly read this sir….I graduated as a BSC(Physics hons) student from the university of Calcutta in 2016. I don’t have any plan for MSc. Our financial background is not good. All I have been doing now is preparation for Gov job exams but I am stuck on uncertainty. I can’t afford to get myself admitted to a renowned coaching center because it is too expensive. Under all circumstances I have decided that Hardware and networking course will be the cheapest and the best option for me to pursue because it will set up my future and will help me get a good job in any private sector in case I don’t get a job in Government sector. Kindly guide me sir. I don’t know whether I have made a right decision.
