Republic of India. A Study of the Educational System of India & Guide to the Academic Placement of Students from India in United States Educational Institutions.
Sweeney, Leo J.
The purpose of this publication, as in the case of the other "World Education Series", is to provide a guide for the use of admissions officers and others in the admission and placement of the students of a particular country for study in educational institutions in the United States. Specifically it is hoped that this volume will furnish the basis of sounder assessment of the quantity and the quality aspects of Indian educational institutions, and the Indian student and his academic record. The first seven chapters provide a description of the historic and contemporary educational scene. The last two chapters deal with problems peculiar to Indian credentials and provide the focus for the entire work, the specific placement recommendations based on various credentials and degrees from Indian institutions. Thirteen appendices provide 240 pages of information for evaluating the students' credentials, e.g., list of institutions and samples of credential forms. (Author/DJB)
