can i go to foreign countries for job , if i have completed bsc agriculture in TNAU ?

rishabh5978@gmail.com 24th Nov, 2019
Hello there. Hope you are doing good. I would like to tell you that in order to get a job abroad, you need to have minimum two years work experience in your respective field. After immediately completing your bachelors, there are very chances of getting a direct job abroad as employers evaluates your whole profile. So, you should focus on getting a good job in India first and gain experience out of it.

I hope you found this answer helpful. Good luck for your future.

Is jee main mark is needed for agriculture engineering to join in TNAU?

Sonali Sahu Student Expert 3rd Nov, 2019
Hello,
It depends on the college what entrance exam it considers. If the college accepts any other entrance like state entrance for admission then you can appear for it and take an admission.
It's not mandatory you have to appear jee mains only. For any branch from engineering you have to appear an entrance exam. If you don't want to appear national entrance exam i.e. JEE then you can appear for state entrance exam. If you want to give any entrance of other states you will go under open category. For that the cutoff rank is really low.
So make a through research where you want to join and what exams you can give to get an admission.
Hope it helps you!
