My college life was epic. We had the best teacher's ever and the college offered the best degrees at that time especially in my field. Loved my experience over there and am very proud of being a Xavierite. Also infrastructure is absolutely gorgeous with the most ancient and rather british architecture. Completely different environment all together.
ENTRANCE PREVIEWPhD. 84%. Best for BA. I had a special interview with the principal as I was one of those few cases who had changed from commerce to arts faculty after twelfth. Xaviers is highly popular for providing high grade academics in the fields of science as well as commerce and arts and has a wide array of subjects to choose from including subjects like sports which is great for girls and boys.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
Fee structure is varying for different courses, however being financially weaker, Xaviers was a great option for me and it provided the best of the best in a budget.
Very good in fact. Many people got good job offer with reputed companiesS both nationally as well as internationally. Around twenty people were placed at Taj, Tata companies, and Procter and gamble.
Hostels at that time were sadly confined to boys, am unaware if the policies have changed now but hope they have. The food was excellent and canteen services were great and highly hygienic.
Haven't kept in touch with many. But there are several alumni meet ups that are yet held of my batch and even the future ones. However my batch has settled down. And I have a few friends who are highly successful in life and have settled down in better countries like USA AND Australia England etc. It's great to still see the old teacher's be part of th ancient institution.
Excellent faculty who were highly cooperative and helpful at all points of time, hopefully Xavier will always retain its good staff that increase the experience manifold.
Gender ratios are just fine though at that time hostel service s were confined to boys only. Not very sure of today. There are people from different communities but then it was confined to Indians only. Economic status of children ranged from poor to the rich.
Exams are very comparative which I think is great and they inculcate a spirit of responsibility end intensify memory. Exams were dependant on different courses and were well designed.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
Good and at all times prescribed by our University of Mumbai, so always on point. It was largely theoretical and book based, very easy to interpret. Electives like sociology and commerce were taken up by me while others opted for physcology, logic, anthropology and political science.
I didn't opt for internship but was a fellow for the department for rupees one fifty per annum at that time, which was indeed very little. But the experience I gained was immense.
There were several events and cultural programs that were included like Malhar and farewell and prom. I enjoyed all of these though I was the shy one it was fun to watch the girls and Guys swirl to the beat.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
I'm not aware of loans but there is a varied detail of scholarships that are mentioned on their website. Didn't take a loan at that time but you could if you want through the bank or the ones they provide.
