    Default 1 year off before i join degree ?

    Hi

    I have been doing my Diploma in Electronics and seriously i hate it , never do that

    So this is my final semister and now i am going to enter degree after a month break ( if i get super awesome marks which i won't)[min marks to get admission in mumbai is 85%+ ].

    Now, let's come to the point :-

    I am thinking to take a gap of 1 year after my semister is over and in this 1 year, i will try to learn languages like C,C++, Pearl, Unix etc.

    & i will attend cources of Ethical Hacking and try to do stuff like that.

    I just want to do these things for whole 1 year and if i became good at it, it can decide my future.

    So was asking for your opinions.

    Find out the service charges by a technician to service A TV/Tape recorder/Home system/ dvd player/ cellphone etc.
    Service personnel after a stint in a company , start their own service shop.

    If you hate Electronics( my bread and butter by the way ) i suggest take a diploma course in Computer Science while working. ( foundation course). If not included in your Diploma in Electronics.

    If you find the subject interesting then learn the other programming languages before joining a degree course.

    One year break may affect your chances of getting
    admission for a Degree course.

    Wish you, all success in your career.

    I just want to do these things for whole 1 year and if i became good at it, it can decide my future.

    So was asking for your opinions.
    Same situation which I am facing right now. I completed diploma from deemed university. After that I could not get any admission anywhere in my state even though I got 69% because of government rules for deemed university student. So, I wasted my time on preparing TOEFL for abroad. & still preparing but could not get required marks for further application. I stuck up at toefl But buddy, you have time because you woke up early. I want to suggest only one thing. Do not indulge any kind of courses related to any filed It never give secure future unless you are master in that field. Education is just for securing future. You can do whatever you want along with study. It really helps you out.
    As in the post you have mentioned your interest, that sound good but it will give minimum amount of salary if you could not be a best programmer but you never earn salary like degree student. B. Tech has own its value. If you are innovative and you are confident about your interest then go ahead because hacking field is not easy. You need to be mad behind that. I have seen that you are ready waste one year. Why do not you invest that one year behind AIEEE. There are lots of benefits of it. In all over india, AIEEE secured 10% quota in all top universities of india including all IITs. After giving that, you can change you major for degree. Buddy, you have time to change your future. I know AIEEE is not easy exam but it is god for diploma holder to get in degree. You can start learning programming with b.tech/ AIEEE exam
    I am still feeling guilty of being lazy. I do not have any hope of having my bright future now because I wasted my one year. Instead of that I can invest my entire in other activities which will give me benefit for further study. Perhaps I have to pay more in future for that. I am free now. But I have to take admission in low reputed college by paying huge donation. So, I can remain active. I am still deeply interested in hacking field like you but I have chosen different major. I hope my advise will help you.

    There is no quota reserved in NRI seats or management quota seats for diploma holders. After two years of being inactive, student can not apply for further regular course in my state. I hope that you do not have any kind rules like this in your state. You will have chance of getting admission in degree if you pass diploma from your government state education board.


    Best of Luck
    I can help by providing guidance as much as I know.

    No. Actually this question also raised in mind when I have completed diploma but I have searched that according this latest brochure diploma holder can give an exam.

    Latest brochure from official website:

    @essbebe see this *ttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Hat

    Ethical hacker checks system security by attacking on that system.
    & about the scope, I do not know really but I can see a successful ethical hacker, Ankit fadia from India, recently. He is still growing tremendously. Now, he offers classes. I was mad. So, I collected lots of info about him. He started his learning when he was 15. He started his journey by taking his interest in security as his passion. He published lots of books in the market. Some of them are appreciated more by people like us who do not have knowledge of hacking or deep programming for some learning intension but I should say that he did good hard work in his life. Now, he is doing his major from world's 4th rank university, Standford University, USA. Normally, not a normal person can get an admission in Standford as well as no normal person can afford it but he made it. He often goes to give workshop and training to corporate level employees.
    I do not know my knowledge is right/wrong about him but I know only this abt him.

    Ankit Fadia on wiki (Read it)

    It is in USA. So, there may be a problem to learn. I think best way to learn is Ankit fadia's courses. They are also available online.

    i think these are the cource of the future.

    Ethical hackers: someone India needs? | Latest News

    Their are not much people in these filed, and if you manage to find interest in it, than you would definitely do a go.

    Think for example you find a security flaw in website of "Big Bazar" they will definitely pay you huge money to us to fill it.

    Nothing is invented which is non hackable whether it is maintained or not.

    I think there is a scope because hackers really work hard to deface the system and ethical hacker prevent that. So, now a days it is highly required of an ethical hackers but because of being hard to be an ethical hacker, nobody chooses this profession or fails to be an ethical hacker.

    I am sure there must be high scale because they require a person who completed degree/master as well as certified ethical hacker.

    AIEEE is very easy as I talked with student who gave it in the year of 2009. Now, He is studying at IIT, Bombay.

    But we made up our mind that it is a hard exam because of physics, maths & chem. According to his experience, he told me that once you understand the fundamental of topics. Then it is very very easy. This exam does not contain any descriptive type of question. That exam just covers multiple choice type of question. Major disadvantage of this exam is negative marking. One point will deducted from the total if four questions are written wrong. Every year almost 1.5 to 2 lacs students give this exam and test their knowledge.
    There are lots of guides available, tuitions, online classes and practice books for cracking AIEEE.
    In the short period of time, I got the news that government will cancel the intake of part time degree quota and then after diploma's. In our state, order has passed that part time degree courses will be canceled which will be implemented by this year to so on. Government will consider 12th standard as a compulsory standard(state board exam) & 10th standard as a regular one.

    Ethical Hacking has unlimited job opportunities these days. But there is a word of caution for guys looking to become an ethical hacker. There is no single course that will create an ethical hacker, you need to know a whole lot of things.

    A basic requirement is intense knowledge in two operating systems, Windows and Linux. The former mostly the victim and the latter being the attacker.

    Ankit Fadia courses are only a starting step. You will hardly get a good job of your liking with just the AFCET(Ankit Fadia Certiied Ethical Hacker) certification.

    My advice to vorazeal would be to study now and get proper educational qualifications, as I believe you must be in you early 20's. Maybe take the AIEEE, look to clear it well.

    i've already got a call for job for "System Administrator" its something related to Electronics, but i declined it because i hate it.

    And if you see, Ethical Hacker is very highly paid and has UL opportunities, their are 100 Million Web Servers+ and it will rise day by day.

    So, this is a good field i suppose.

    That is a huge misconception you have. How many so called "ethical hackers" do you know that are very highly paid? and also explain what your definition is for the term "highly paid"

    There may be a few people here and there that actually get paid for this sort of stuff but that does not mean that every one who calls him/her self a hacker will be able to find a highly paying job for thier line of work.

    Dont just look at 5-6 people who come on new channels and give an impression that its all rosy out there. Its not!

    Do you know, Apple has a secret workgroup, which provides 10,000$ if you find one flaw in the latest Windows releases [my professor's professor used to work in it and had found 3 flaws when 7 was released]

    And i am not saying that guy who calls them hackers earns, but guys who are really one, does get a good job.
