Hi to every one,
Iam a btech graduate who is passing out in 2011.I have a problem in my career graph.
I have 1 year gap in education after my Intermediate(i.e 12th).My actual reason for the gap is i have taken eamcet(i.e an entrance test for graduation in AP) long term coaching after 12th for 1 year and i got 34451 rank and i joined in a non reputed college.
What would be the best reason for my education gap to mention during an interview?..........
Pls help me......

please be true in your interviews and there is no point hiding a fact.
Your reason for the gap is very genuine, there are number of people who have a gap of year or may be two for preparation of various entrance exams.
So do not worry and be true in the interview.
All the best..

Thank you for u r suggestion mam..But i think that will not show positive view on my side bcoz i have attempted 2 times for the exam and did not get a good result n how can i exaplain about this..........(Actually im thinking to say that i was ill that year and thought not to waste a year and taken eamcet coaching but at last i did not get a good rank..).Is this reason is some what genuine and promising....
What my friend Archana has said is absolutely true....
you should always say the truth during our interview.....
Because if you lie in your interview then you have your marksheets pointing at different direction at that time...
Therefore, i suggest that, you should be frank and open and do not pretend to lie otherwise it would cost you your image, reputation and maybe also your job.....

hello hemz
i am also facing same problem but some different. i have a gap 4 years after my 10 class , now i am pursuing MBA 2nd year. don't bother about gap, say truth to interviewer.they can understand. what madam said is right.

Hi archana madam, i am pursuing MCA final year with 85% of marks, but i have 2years gap after 10th and one year gap after 12th. Now i 'm participating in campus drives.Here i need to mention my educational gaps.
Please conform whether i have 3 years gap or is there any chance to show it 2years only.
Because, in today's world all MNCs are mentioning that 2 years gap is allowed. One more thing is, these gaps are not by backlogs these were obtained due to my financial problems. please help me how can i manage it....
thanks in advance,

madam,sir i am a fresher but my problem is that i have 3yr gap in my education after matriculation for this thing i am so nervous so i can't go to the interview.please help me so i can face it properly in interview.
Madam / sir, I did intermediate in 1997, B.SC in 2012 and now i am intrested in doing B.Ed, would is help me in getting a goverment job or this gap will arise the questions? plz help me out wt to do now?
I think that you should not be worried so much. The main reason to hire you is your skills and could really improve that thing. Write here about your story....
I also agree with Archanan mam. One should be honest when gets interviewed. This is a very common when people take gap in their studies so no need to bother it.
