A top consultant said that 120 out of the 200 students would prefer to study or fly to the USA for higher education. But with the situation changed completely, most of them are now preferring other countries like the United Kingdom and Canada instead of the USA. This year inquiries about the USA are quite less and all those who are applying for USA universities are also exploring other options.
The USA announced that it will not allow the international students into the country if they are taking online classes for the upcoming semesters.
