Class 10 Paragraph Writing | SWOT Note Analysis
An analysis of Gurmeet’s SWOT notes indicates that it is more advantageous for her to join the college. If she joins the college, she can benefit from a strong curriculum and quality faculty. She will also get to be a part of various activity clubs. Of course, the college does not provide hostel facility but that is unlikely to be a problem for her because she lives in a nearby village. While lack of diversity can make her college life a little boring, the presence of activity clubs should compensate for that. The college has partnership with various professional organisations and has a practical approach towards research. Both of these factors should enable her to find good employment opportunities upon completion of the course. This is also proven by the fact that the college has a strong alumni. While there are still some threats such as inadequate publicity and budget cuts, they are not big enough to deter her from joining the college in view of the benefits she will get to enjoy.
