There is no entrance for Arts side. You have to score well in your HSC. I scored 92.66% and thus got the admission. This college is one of the nest and always features in top 10 list (for BA Courses). Hence, I chose this college.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
The fee structure for arts side is very feasible. We were charged only around Rs 2000 as our tuition fees per year. Except for this, we have to also pay for mid term and final exam fee which is not more than 800. So overall, the fee structure is very good. Anyone can afford almost any course in this college.
For arts background students, the placements do not take place. However, for vocational and science background students, placements are done. Many reputed companies visit the campus for the purpose. Also, many Psychology and Economics students acquire jobs through placements sometimes.
The hostel facilities for both boys and girls are amazing. Boys studying graduation get single bed room. This, for me was the best part. Apart from that, the hostel also has many facilities like newspaper, drinking water. The washrooms are cleaned everyday. The fee structure of hostel is also very affordable. Fees for a year is around 20-25 k.
The alumni network of Fergusson college is very strong and this network is very helpful for the juniors especially those who belong to science branch. Senior students always help the junior students especially in studies.

The campus life of Fergusson college is awesome. There are different groups working for the betterment of college and society as a whole. The gender ratio is also very good and the college is very good for women/girls to take up higher studies. There is always some kind of extracurricular activity going on in the college campus. Science labs are well equipped and well managed. Sport and other competitions are held throughout the year and are very good.

This exam is of 60 marks but marks gained are adjusted for 20 marks. The final exams are of 80 marks where a student is expected to write answers in descriptive form. This exam has is for rest of the 80 marks.
