In 2009-10, China overtook India to the number one slot by sending more international students to the US. Of the 690,923 international students who enrolled in US colleges and universities in 2009-10, India contributed 104,897 (15.2%) of total international students. Interestingly the top three countries (China, India, and South Korea) contribute 44% of all international students that study in the US.
Engineering, Computer science and mathematics, and business and management were the top three fields of study for Indian students. 65% of Indian students go to the US to do their graduate studies. For Indian students who studied abroad in 2009-10, US was their favorite destination (104,897) followed by UK (36,000) and Australia (21,000).
Education in India 32% of the Indian population is still illiterate. Over the last 10 years the government has taken tremendous steps to increase literacy in the country. The constitution was amended to include Right to Education as a Fundamental Right for all Indian children. The Right to Education Act states that every child between the ages of 6 to 14 years has the right to free and compulsory education. The Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (education for all) movement was started in 2002. Free mid-day meals are now served in government schools to attract students from the lower strata of society. These steps have lead to an increase in the youth literacy rate to 82%.

On completing the graduate/post-graduate course, the university issues a “Mark sheet” which has the name of the student, university name, degree name, course name, month and year of examination, subjects taken, marks per subject, total marks, class (first class is 60%+, second class is less than 60%), place of issue, date of issue and registrar’s/authorized signatory’s signature. A separate degree certificate is also issued by the university which states the name of the university, issuing authorities designation (usually chancellor or vice-chancellor), name of the student, college name, degree name, month and year of passing examination, date of convocation and signature of the chancellor or equivalent authority of the university.
