Scottish Church College Kolkata Admission 2017

Founded in 1830, the Scottish Church College (SCC), Kolkata is the oldest Christian liberal arts and sciences college in India, which boasts a multitude of legendary alumni, namely, Swami Vivekananda, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, et al. The SCC has been rated ‘A’ by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), and has also been conferred the status of ‘College with Potential for Excellence’ by the University Grants Commission (UGC).

Some important facts regarding the process of admission are listed below:

1) The College has an online system of admission and does not carry out physical distribution of forms.

2) Admission to the College is determined by the merits (based on Index Mark) that the candidates obtain in their previous qualifying examination.

3) The college, therefore, does not undertake entrance examination for any of the programmes except:

  • Physics (Hons.), where an admission test is held (only for the General Merit category); and
  • BBA (Bachelor of Business Administration), where an entrance test is conducted followed by GD & PI (Group Discussion & Personal Interview).

4) The academic session of the SCC extends from the 1st of July to the 30th of June every (academic) year.

5) The candidates who qualified (the previous qualifying examination) in the current year (i.e. the year of admission) are preferred to those that passed theirs earlier.

6) Except for the B.Ed. course in the Department of Teacher Education, which is restricted to female students, all other courses are co-educational in nature.

7) Apart from the usual reservation for the backward classes and people with physical disabilities (SC-22%; ST-6%; PH-3%), as a Christian Minority Institution, the SCC reserves some seats for eligible Christian candidates as well.

In Scottish Church college only in Physics department and BBA department there is an admission test at the UG level. In all the other departments at the UG level admissions are based on marks secured during the Class 12 Board Examinations. So, basically i never had to sit for any admission test as i opted for Political Science honours at the UG level.
