Following are the few parameters on which you should base your decision

Research
Faculty
Infrastructure
Encouragement to Ideas
Crowd
Within the state/Outside the state
Placement
Fees
Events

How Important are each of these factors:

Once you’ve listed down all the factors, the next step would be to give them each of these factors importance. Some students would give more importance to infrastructure, others may think placements are more important. Give them importance according to you, but make sure the total doesn’t exceed 100.

Research: 8
Faculty: 12
Infrastructure: 13
Encouragement to Ideas: 10
Crowd: 8
Within the state/Outside the state: 10
Placement 16
Fees 5
Events: 18

Decision Multiple

Now once you’ve listed down all the factors and also given them appropriate weights, you need to consider your options and give them points for each of these factors. The better the factor, higher the points.

For example; if you have two options IIT-B and IIT Guwahati and you’re considering placements. IIT-B definitely has better placements so you’ll give it higher points.

When you have all the columns ready, you need to multiply, the Weights and Points. The option which gets the highest points should be your pick.

This is a simple way to scientifically calculate which college would suit you the best. We can make it much more inclusive considering a lot more factors, but that would get really difficult. This would work for you just fine.
