If I want to go to uk, canada or usa to pursue higher studies, which exam should i give? GMAT,GRE,SAT,ACT, TOEFL OR IELTS? Also, please give me a comparisons between these exams
The type of exam should you give depends on the University you're looking for and also the course.
SAT or ACT is basically for Undergraduate courses while GRE and GMAT is for Postgraduate courses. TOEFL and IELTS are basically English Proficiency tests. They are given by the candidates whose native language is not English, it too varies according to the university. Every university has it's different criteria but if you're looking for Undergraduate course then you should give SAT as it is accepted by many universities and the language exam based on what the university is accepting.
Is there any constitutional act that support or regulate the donation?
There is nothing like Capitation, nothing like donation so if somebody is doing that you have right to make complain & get it addressed so if somebody says that you pay so much money for any purpose it is not legal. When a parent & student goes to an agent who works & makes the thing in agency outside university Why they go to agent while they know it’s not right.
My suggestion is this that don’t create the problem then try to finding a solution of that. You understand your responsibility, duty, behave within the space if then something goes wrong.
