The Presidency college being a fully funded Govt. Institution, the fees structure was very feasible for normal middle class people. The science department fees was a little higher than the other streams due to the Lab fees. But overall it was affordable and for higher middle class the fees was like peanuts. It was around Rs 1000 per month in 2001 - 2004.

The course curriculum was very much in depth at per with the Honours course. The college was under Calcutta University so it follows annual exam format. The department used to conduct class tests and other assignments to enhance the skill set. The syllabus was perfect to build the foundation for the higher level i.e. Masters and PHD.
