Hello,

After my 12th, I wasted one year because I got admission into an engineering college, attended 2 months of college (August - September) and then decided to quit and move to Commerce (B.Com.) because I found it too hectic. But by then, it was too late for B.Com. admission in that year so I had to wait till June of next year.

In the student questionnaire I have to fill along with my study visa application, I want to explain this study gap of 1 year. My agent explained the whole period OF 1 YEAR as "WAS PREPARING FOR ENGINEERING ENTRANCE EXAMS BUT FINALLY DECIDED TO GO FOR B.COM" !!!

I think that sounds too stupid, that I would prepare for entrance exams for 1 year. Do you guys think that's fine or I should put up an alternate explanation? Any advice would be highly appreciated.

Thanks!!

Actually, I think your agent's reason is a good honest one.
How? I wasn't preparing for entrance exams, I was already studying in an engineering college.

Hmmm... I see your point. I think the best thing is to be honest. Explain that you got admission in an engineering college but your heart was on commerce. But you'd already missed your chance to apply for the current academic year.

If you worked or did something else during the period, mention that.

I've applied for Hospitality Program, Deposited Fees and Done with GIC, Everything is done but is there anything I've to keep in mind before applying visa.
