I don't feel any degrees which will help us in QA/Testing domain.These degrees just provides a foundation. I do agree that some certifications from reputed institutions help us in getting a job. My point of view is to explore the things on our own, its fastest method of becoming a good professional.

Once i reach to work i forget my personal life and same when i am at home. We shouldn't take much pressure on us.So, Tension leneka nahi. Deneka! this is the way iwork
Most Important Decisions
Choosing Science as a mainstream subject in my PUC (12th standard). Joining a job soon after completion of my graduation and did a correspondence course for post graduation.
