Aravinth KumarBachelor of Commerce [B.Com]Batch : 2016

Best 3 years of my life

Fees -

Comparing to other Commerce colleges, it may look little expensive. Bit the quality of education and other curriculum worth it to the core. Personally I feel it is reasonable for this kind of college. I paid 17000Rs. per semester in my first year and 23000Rs per semester in my second Year and 30000 Rs in my Final year. Other than this they will charge Exam fees of Rs.100 per paper.

Course Curriculum -

Commerce is basically a theoritical oriented paper. But here we felt very interesting with the structure they had. They had lot more other activities other than major subjects, we can choose any subject of our choice from any other department from our college each semester. I chose Data Base Management System, Web Designing, Multimedia, etc from computer science department. It also provide us a chance for having contact with other department fiends also.

Fees -

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.

Course Curriculum -

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 The subjects and the portions are outdated and the very assessing method or grading is only based on written exams.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 recommendat...

Fees -

Fee in the first year comprising two semesters was Rs.2000 per semester. It increased to Rs.22000 per semester in the second year and to Rs.27000 per semester in third year. The fee structure varies from departments. I felt the fee structure being a bit expensive, but not that expensive for not being affordable for students from the middle class.

Course Curriculum -

The course curriculum was as good as it should be. Apart from the general subjects of the course opted, there many other courses which are even praised by the Tamil Nadu Government. One being, the Outreach Program. In the second year, groups were appointed a particular slum. That group is further divided into taking care of the elderly, infants, youth, women empowering and more if the situation demanded. Providing hearing aid machines to the elderly, books and stationery for the youth and jobs for youth as well as women. This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience where people get to know what if feels like to live in houses that breakdown in a storm, budgeting when there is limited income and...

Fees -

The fee structure justifies the course offered. Its not too much or less. Fee is collected exactly the right amount it has to be. The college follows the fee structure instructed as by the government. And there is no external fees whatsoever. The fee structure seems well organized too.

Course Curriculum -

I would say better than many colleges. I would rate it 8.5/10. The syllabus are being updated frequently and provided we do have many allied subjects to learn more skills. On the research purpose side, you can learn more technically if you get the individual attention of that particular faculty.
