Default FedEx or Speedpost??!!!

I'm from India. Done with online part and in the process of getting my forms signed and papers done...


Can I send via speedpost.. They say it ll reach by 10-12 days. Economical


Or

FedEx reaches in 5-6days but costly.

Can I track both of them?


I'm applying for October -December eligibility period.. Owing to slow processing at my med school they'll be able to send in 5-6 days..


I don't want the scheduling to be delayed!!!


Any other suggestions and advice are most welcome.. There are no other students applying from my college..

I would recommend Fedex and definitely you can track your package, when your stuffs are done at the FedEx office they will provide you with a receipt with the tracking number, you can use this number online to check on your mail

Speed Post is unreliable as is everything with Indian government. Use DTDC. They send it via DHL's network only but charge half the price. And you can track it easily.

Mine reached in 3 working days.. But it would depend on where you are sending it from!
