To check forgery, PU to give degrees with bar codes

Waterproof, non-tearable, bar-coded and a sheet with security thread and micro printing. These are some of the features of the academic degrees, which will be given to the students at the Panjab University’s annual convocation in March.

Panjab University

Over 900 students of Panjab University having pursued their graduation, PhDs and MPhils will be honoured on the annual convocation. Also, 80,000 students who have completed studies from PU and its affiliated colleges will be honoured with such degrees, on which PU has already printed Quick Response (QR) codes on the upper left corner.

Controller of examination (CoE), Panjab University, Professor Parvinder Singh, said the project has been initiated to crack down on the issue of fake degree certificates and also to make the degree verification process easier.

“Although, we have not received any such case of fake degree certificates on the campus, there are cases elsewhere. We need to be cautious,” said Professor Singh.

He added, “This project is not much different to HRD’s move to provide digital degrees. With these degrees having QR codes, the university and the college authorities will be able to verify them by scanning the code. Also, the students can click their respective QR codes to keep them in their phones and whenever required, they can get their degrees verified from the campus by showing that code in the phone.”

Professor Singh said the degree has some hidden security features as well, which can give details of the students’ enrolment number, date of exam or the exams taken, etc.

Professor Singh said three times the amount has been spent this year on designing certificates as compared to last year. “If we hiked the examination fees, we are giving the students back with newly designed degrees.”

One of the officials at the PU examination branch even shared that the degree certificates will be pink in colour and even the border lines have security features. Officials further said that other universities in the country are also printing QR codes on their degree certificates, considering it as a solution for the bogus certificates issue at the time of admissions.

Examination branch is usually burdened with the applications from students going abroad and elsewhere for higher education and wishing to get their varsity degree certificates verified. Professor Singh said the bar-coded degrees will enable them to get it verified in no time.

Controller of examination, Panjab University also said that soon, the students will also be able to apply online for the verification and after the convocation, their details will be uploaded online.

Top 6 Things to consider before selecting your coaching institute

Several students aspire to compete for IIT-JEE, NEET, AIIMS exams every year. Most look for renowned institutes, as the competitive exams give a significant turn to the students’ careers.  Choosing a good coaching institute can make or break a student’s life.  It is necessary to research the institute properly to make sure you are choosing the right kind of coaching center.


Here are few important things to consider before selecting your coaching institute.

  1. Check the track record

You may have heard stories about how students have got brilliant results after joining a coaching institute. While choosing your institute make it a point to search for the past records of the coaching center pertaining to how well the past students have performed earlier. Try to shortlist only those institutes which have a larger percentage of students who have topped or done pretty well for the exam you are preparing. Joining such an institute will also brighten your chances of doing well.  Try not going only by the testimonials posted on the website of the institute but also check the record of pass out students or even surf the internet for reviews that are genuine. For instance, if you are looking for Aakash Coaching reviews; then a simple Google search on Aakash Coaching Review will provide you with an evaluation of past students’ experience and results. Additionally, you could even check with a relative or friend who has earlier appeared for a similar exam, to guide you.

  1. Lecturer’s qualifications and experience level

A good teacher can make all the difference to the way you grasp a subject. Since a good teacher can transform an average student into a brilliant one, it is very important to consider the expertise of the faculty at the Institute. You could check before enrolling for a list of the faculty present along with their skills to get an idea of the level of teaching at the coaching center. If possible try finding online lectures of the professors, which will give you a much clearer picture.

  1. Fee structure and expenses

While you are considering your budget, you also want quality education. Be wary of institutes offering huge discounts but not having enough expertise or teaching staff. Check with the institute if payment in installments is possible or if any reduction in fee is possible when payment is made in one go or incase there is a possibility to avail scholarship through an exam. Sometimes you might not want to continue with an institute within few days of joining it; hence it is always better to look for a center which offers some refund options. Online coaching institutes’ fees are more economical compared to others in-house coaching institutes. They also provide high flexibility to the student to be able to choose only those chapters for which they need help.

  1. Check the study material provided

Collect some information about the type of books or information offered at the institutes. You could ask a friend or check with other students who are studying at the Institute. Most good classes will provide education modules and question banks for both solved and unsolved problems. Check if the Institute has customized the study material to suit your particular exam’s requirements. It is better to find out in advance about the quality of modules. The last thing you want is to waste your time studying irrelevant material which is will not be very useful for the examination.

  1. Evaluation of student’s performance

It is important to analyze and evaluate your level of readiness for the exam regularly to help improve the final result. Try to find out the evaluation system of the institute in advance. Ask the Institute the number of times the assessment is done- weekly or monthly or quarterly to ascertain a candidate’s ability. Also, check if any guidance is provided to help improve performance.

  1. Distance and travel time

Finally, the distance and time spent on traveling is also a major factor to consider while choosing your institute. While preparing for the competitive exams, you may also need to attend other classes at school or college. Ensure that the traveling time from your home to the coaching is not too long; else it could hinder you from performing well at school. Also, it can reduce necessary rest time which will eventually affect your overall performance academically as well as for the competitive exam. If you feel travel time can pose a problem, then you could always opt for online coaching institutes which offer high-quality coaching from the comforts of your home. Moreover, huge travel distances can end up being very expensive. Eventually you need to choose wisely while picking your institute.

2.     Focus on the brief

How to Choose Effectively Between Human and Machine Translation

Translation is an essential tool for effective communication between companies and their far-flung clients. The difference of language among businessmen might hinder them pretty badly; translation plays an important role to solve this issue. Initially, translations were done either through freelance translators or translating agencies, but the advancement of technology triggered machine translators. A lot of things are taken into consideration while converting your source text language into the target text language by a professional translator.

The quality of your translation can be determined by its nature and fluency in the translated language. Quality work makes the reader believe that it’s an original content, and not a translated one. When you opt for machine translation, there’s no guarantee for accuracy.Comparatively, human translations are more accurate than machine translation.

Human translation vs machine translation

Human translation

Professional translators, such as translate shark retain the original meaning of your content with their years of experience. The same can’t be true with the machine translation. Professional translators take into account the minute details of your content, such as its tone, cultural or contextual reference, specific expression, slang, and much more.

Human translators are often native speakers of the target language;they’re familiar with its specificities, grammar, subtleties, and expressions. Your contents are delivered with appropriate and accurate translation, while preserving its meaning and tone.

Most human translators possess a translation degree; you can choose your translator with a specific area of expertise. Their knowledge in the specified field facilitates the accurate translation of your content. Machine translation might not be able to provide you the exact translation of a specific technical term. If machines translation is unable to obtain the equivalent term they might end up retaining the source text.

Machine translation

They save a lot oftime and money, but it can hit you hard with its inaccuracy. It analyzes the structure of every phrase or term within the source text. This is further broken into elements that can be translated and rephrased to a term in the target language. The quality of its translation is lower than human translation due to the difference of structure in each language; machines don’t take this into account while translating. Machine translation is efficient in translating single words, acting like an online dictionary.

Google translate is a popularly used translation tool, which enables you to translate entire web pages and documents with ease. The auto-detection features figure out which language you’re looking at and translates them easily. Though it’s not the perfect tool, when it comes to complicated sentences and context, Google translate is the best free tool available that is accessible on the web and mobile. It also has an offline feature; you needn’t worry about your mobile data and the need to be connected to Wi-Fi. The audio component enables you to listen to the translated phrases by a native speaking algorithm.

Most of you mightcriticize that Google translation fails with words having multiple meaning depending on the context. The same is evident with most machine translations. WordLens, a brainchild of Quest Visual, is a real-time camera-based translation that translates unfamiliar languages into your native language. Bing Translator on Microsoft Windows is worth mentioning when it comes to machine translations tools.

The final verdict

Machine translation is ideal for content that doesn’t need a perfect translation, but a general understanding of it. Small, non-crucial projects for the internal purpose can be translated with machine translation where accuracy is not a major concern. Human translation will be the most preferred and reliable choice for your more important projects spanning larger audience. It ensures that your project is a high-quality translation and is likely to be perfectly understood by your target audience.Translate shark is one among the chosen human translators, who ensure that all your translations are tailor-made by accomplished translators.
