(using my alt to answer this) Sometimes I don't understand how people who are fed by parents for a decade say that they have family pressure. Not hate to you. But please learn to take the blame. If you were not even able to clear a small chsl exam after studying engg, then it's your fault. Let me tell you what real pressure is, I am just 18, and my parents are on the verge of divorce. My dad has given me clear instructions to clear the next year chsl exam(thankfully I score good in mocks) and join, and then prepare for upsc. Also, my dad isn't financially unstable, infact he has a gov job with 11lpa package. But still I had to join open University so that i can take joining from chsl exam and also get my degree. Also, I have one suggestion for you. you can do BOOTCAMP course from a renowned portal. Companies give great value to people who have done bootcamp. It's hardly 6-12month course. They'll teach you coding in great detail. I have one friend who got a good 25lpa package after doing BCA+bootcamp. If you want I can ask my friend to tell you more about it in detail.
