It is one the best colleges in Chennai for B Com. There was no entrance examination for B.com. There are entrances for other courses.
I didn't took any CAT or JEE kind of entrance. There was a aptitude test regarding the Maths and Computer syllabus. We then had a practical programming test.
Applied for the college and Got admission card. Went for an interview with the subject teacher and got the seat.
The college admission was based on the Higher secondary scores and Personal interview. I had scored more than 75% in my Twelfth Board exams. After the results were announced, application forms were given. Three options were given for choosing the major. As I had a liking towards Botany I chose Plant Biology and Biotechnology as my first choice.
I did not take any exams yet. As i did B.Sc Chemistry and did not need any extra exams. I just wrote the entrance exam which was organised by the college.
I did not take any entrance exam. I got admitted via merit quota based on the cut off marks of accounts, economics, commerce and maths.
Admission was based on PUC marks and interview.The interview was very brief and meaningful, straight into my anticipation when joining that college. The interviewer had read through my high marks and had appeared already decided to admit me. That was a great experience.
I am a Commerce student and I didn't have to take up any entrance exam. But they had considered Accounts, Commerce and Maths for cut off and luckily my cut off was 99% and hence got a seat. The interview process was simple. Just submit the relevant mark sheets and docs and then you have to wait to hear if you are selected. I didn't have much of an idea about this college myself but had applied after hearing that it is very good.
The Stella Maris College offers 40 seats in the P.G course. They conduct an entrance exam for the students who apply online for the course. Along with the written exam, there is also an interview with the heads of the department of English. I scored 70% in the exam and 4.5 in the interview out of 5. The college was known for the great exposure that it provides especially in the department of English.
Just took a private entrance exam. This college is the best in the city for the course I opted for.
