I didn't have to sit in any exam for opting this course in this college. It was open for all and it had a cut out marks, i.e., getting first division in higher secondary examinations. I chose sociology as it deals with the various points of society and social beings. I wanted to learn sociology because it had many scopes too in future.

STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS
Entrance Preview -

There was no entrance exam for the admission to the college. The admission to this college was purely based on the merit marks of ISC or any other 12th board exam score card, and the ones with 50% marks in the aggregate and 45% marks in the Honours subject can take up that subject as their honours subject. The students were granted admission on the basis of their merit or marks scored.


Internship -

The college had organised its first Campus Placement Programme for the students presently in their final year and the fresh graduates, in collaboration with PNB Metlife, one of the leading players in the insurance sector. The students were enthusiastic and nervous at the same time as for most of them it was their first exposure to such a big stage and an opportunity which would set their journey on track for life.

STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS
Entrance Preview -

Admission to this college is particularly based on merit.Students need to fill up forms entering their marks of class 10 and 12 , merit list is made taking the average of sum of marks of these classes and while summing up the marks for the opted subject is doubled up to the summed total. I opted for this particular college because Raj College stands for heritage and is one of the oldest colleges of Burdwan.


Placement -

Some companies come up for campusing who are not that big to provide bundles to aspiring students hunting for jobs.Exact companies I can't mention as am out of information on this matter because our department hasn't yet welcomed any campusing or job opportunities in the last three years of my college tenure.
