After intermediate, the enrollment in the university for graduation is highly important for the students. They have to choose the university, degree program and have to spend time and money.

Due to high stream of students, many of the universities have started the programs without getting accreditation from respective authorities or councils. Every university, along with its all programs with each and every batch needs to be accredited.
