Remarks :

I appeared in WBJEE then I got the chance to study in this college (though even then I wasn't serious about the exam). Finally, I got admitted to JGEC in July 2019. I was in college till Feb of 2020 till the covid situation fell down. I think JGEC is an underestimated college, it has fantastic natural scenarios and environment and a campus full of green plants. I always wanted to get admission to JU or JGEC because both are very old and reputed colleges and have a good academic record. So when I didn't get a chance to study at JU, JGEC was always my second choice. The hostel food of jgeJGECc is very good at least better than the messes. The infrastructure of the college is good and just this year in 2021 it got accredited by NAAC and now it is a tier 2 college which is not bad.

The labs are very good with the required number of apparatus.
