ENTRANCE PREVIEWI had to undertake an entrance exam devised by the college which included an interview. I wasn't informed on how much I had scorn. But my name had been displayed on the first list. Usually exemplary students gets the opportunity to have their names displayed in the first list.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
The fees structure for the morning shift is very feasible as the govt subsidised 70% of the course fee. For example , the fee for a b.con is usually 30,000 on an avg, and the morning shift students are usually obliged to pay 4-8 k. The fee for the evening shift students are collected with government fee exemption ,except for the ones under any scholarship programs.
The placement is carried out by the placement cell of the college, which is a separate body entitled to take care of the placement activities. Placement usually takes place from Jan -March during the last year of the college. Companies such as wipro, TCS, RBS, come for campus placements. The pay usually varies from 10k- 30k a month.
The alumni network consists of successful celebrities, politicians, music directors, directors, film stars, Charted accountants, entrepreneurs, etc. They've been a lot helpful both directly and indirectly over the years. Their influence as an alumni has increased the value of goodwill on our college over the years.
The faculties are diverse in the college. Some share in great experience and knowledge. Some move out of the book to teach a subject. Some preach and some teach. And many new lecturer's greatly suffer from communication problems. The biggest disappointment is their inability to read and correct papers apart or away from the answer key generated to them by the college.
The college is basically a boys college. And during the recent few days some departments at the UG level and most of the PG level courses and diplomas are offered to both boys and girls. There always exist a preference for male students as the college has been a boys college since it's inception. The college shares a unique unity despite students from various diverse races, religions, economic standards.
The exam structure is usually based on writing. Very few subjects requires practical examination for grading. The exam process is divided into two ; the internal examination and the external examination. The internal examination consists of two exams and one assignment which is called (second component). The internal exams are usually hectic as there ain't no gap in between.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
I personally feel the curriculum follows a holistic approach on the development of the student. The subjects and the portions are outdated and the very assessing method or grading is only based on written exams. Practical experience is lacking and the space for creative improvement is not anywhere at reach. The students however are given permission by the college to explore their knowledge outside the book but thatThe process started off by buying an admission form for a sum of Rupees 200, and submitting it with a copy of my 10th and 12th certificates, my community certificate, and other requisites. Being a Catholic I had to submit my baptism certificate. Later I had to submit my recommendation. And as my recommendation added value to my application, with a score of 88% in my 12th , my name was displayed in the first list. Soon, I had wouldn't have any effect on the grading.
Yes, the college provides internship. The duration is usually a minimum of 28 days. The stipend is very rarely given. Very few companies like Goldman Sachs come in on an campus internship. The students are obligated to find an internship program themselves. The experience was really good for me personally as my studies finally included some practical application.
The college usually has two events. The intra college and the inter college cultural event. The intra college cultural event is called ovations and the inter college cultural event is a dance event called Ignite. The ovations is the biggest intra college cultural event in India, with over a hundred celebrity attending it every year. Both the cultural event is organised by the students Union of the college.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
The college offers scholarship for the exemplary students and the economically backward. Certain scholarships are also uniquely devised for poor Catholic students.
