Remarks -

Like a coin, this college has both faces, positive and negative. As a positive remark, this college is good if you are just willing to complete graduation while pursuing something else. On the other hand, in negative remark, the burden of study is mainly on the student and no faculty member takes responsibility to teach you properly. So, you are on your own here.

All are positive points except the type of teachers teaching there for PCP classes. But I don't think so it matters a lot as it is an open learning college and teachers teach only for PCP classes.
