Admission :

A detailed overview of the Admission process is as follows: You have to appear for the entrance test approved by AICTE and apply for the counseling process of the college. A merit list will be released by the university, on the basis of entrance exam scores and overall academic record of the student. Then the shortlisted students will be called for an interview and group discussion round. Afterward, the students will have to undergo the document verification process if they satisfied all these above-mentioned criteria. On the successful completion of these parameters, I was granted admission and asked to pay the fee.

Admission :

I've got 67 percentile in CAT and with this score I applied for admission in the college website. Then I got a call for PI, GD and WAT. I went to college for the same. After the satisfactory performance, I got admission in the college.

Remarks :

The total ambience of the college is so good. A little problem for non keralites exist in the college. As most of the students are Keralites, the non keralites may feel isolated. Any way college provides good scholarships to non keralite students.
