The speaker didn’t speak loudly enough so it was a lot of work straining my ears to catch what she was saying. Maybe in future there can be provision for a microphone. Content wise it was great

Thanks for this event. it was really helpful for us. I also share the important rank and colleges predictor tools for Manipal which helps students who are struggling at the time of admission. Hopefully, visitors will be benefited by the following information.
