I'd been one of those top most students always till my 12th.
I had found interest in computers that time and used to learn something new almost everyday.
But couldn't make to IIT or NSIT. Couldn't get IIIT-D as I was short of just 15 rank. Dropped my year and I was certain that I'd clear IIIT-D entrance or will get admitted in NSIT or DTU. I even used to perform good enough to get the colleges in the coaching institutes as well.
But again don't know what happened on the day of the test and I scored very low to get NSIT or DTU and IIIT-D declared in like Jan that they'll admit on JEE MAINS basis.
Got good enough rank though in IPU to get admission in the main campus with IT. But that time DU had started B.Tech and I opted for that (considering that in the long run, DU will have better reputation than IP). Didn't sit for CIC's entrance either.
I'd been very low since then. I'm about to complete the second year now and haven't learned anything significant. Almost wasted my time.
I got a chance to be in CIC for a few days and I'm repenting ever since. It's my bad luck maybe that my phone fell in water, couldn't be repaired. It had number of one student in CIC and I couldn't discuss anything with him. But I've not been able to get over this feeling of losing the good college.
Not only that, I've lost my spirit to learn, demoralized with bad faculty, burden of attending the minimum attendance % (at college) etc. I know I do belong to those people who are pro in CS and I can do but haven't been able to gather that determination completely. DU colleges just got AICTE approved so it might happen that I may find myself now.
But I do need some motivation, some like minded people and someone to guide right path to learn.
Though it's not relevant but I'd browsed a number of websites like codechef, hacker rank. topcoder, euler-project etc but because of lack of right guidance I've not been able to continue. It either happens because of trying several things at a time or because I fail to manage with my college time and this.
PS: I ain't very social type of guy and I only talk to those who seems interested to talk to me and my social life isn't going good either. Very few good things had happened in my 2 years of college. I'm afraid I'll lose them too without enjoying or learning.
