Placement Experience :

I've personally not faced the placement cell department but had heard that there are quite good placements with a salary of 2-3 LPA. It is quite high for a B.Com graduate these days according to me. But since the majority of the students persue professional courses so they do not sit for placements. So, to be precise the placement is quite according to my knowledge.

Remarks :

This a college which has secured the 2nd place in rankings of bachelor's degree in commerce for the past several years and the teaching faculty is extraordinary which helps students enhance knowledge and gather learning in a far better manner than other colleges. It also has a flexible College timing in the morning which helps students to cope up with other activities in the day. It also requires high results to get an admit which makes the class a better one and meritorious.

If you are a foodie then you won't be happy because there are not a lot of options around it .Admission process:- You have to fill the forms online and thereafter give a written test in the campus and thereafter give an interview over there .If you will be qualified then you will get notified through the website or email.The forms are out in the month of june. and the dates are fluctuating.

Placement Experience :

Students in their final year are eligible to seat for campus placements. You need to register yourself in the 5th semester if you want to seat for the campus program. You can opt for campus training also which is also really good. Most students who opt for campusing get selected. If you speak about Percentage then nearly 90% of students get selected every year from different streams. However, the fact is that not all students seat from campus. Even after getting offer letters from famous companies like Kotak Mahindra, Cognizant they go for higher studies like MBA, PhD. My plan was after getting my graduate degree was to seat for competitive exams. and to grab a seat in the first place. That is why I didn't opt for the campus program. I didn't dream of joining any corporate job.

Remarks :

This college is outstanding in the matter of teaching and discipline. This is a completely ragging free college. If any student is found to flout any rule he/she will be immediately suspended. Obviously, you will prefer this college over any others in Kolkata due to the sheer legacy and prestige you will get if you get a chance to join this esteemed college. The admission process was based on a strict merit basis. They took into consideration the best of 4 subjects obtained in hs exam and apart from that you needed to have maths as a subject in +2 level. If you speak about bad aspects then maybe some student from non English medium may find it a little bit difficult since the mode of teaching is English. Apart from that somebody also may not like the strict discipline especially after coming out from school.

The reason for preferring this college is in this college more focused on computational physics which one will really need after graduation or post-graduation.

"Life at SXC, Kolkata"

I had applied to two colleges - St. Xavier's College (Autonomous), Kolkata and J.D.Birla Institute, Kolkata. The admission process for SXC involved an entrance test of 50 marks. With a combination of the marks achieved in the entrance and the percentage achieved in 10+2 board examinations, the cut-off lists were announced, post which the list of candidates selected for the personal interview was rolled out. The PI was then conducted as per the schedule and the admission process was completed on the very day. For JDBI, only the personal interview was conducted post which the admission lists were rolled out.

"No matter what your dreams are, Xavier's is the place for you."

I applied for 4 colleges including St. Xavier's College, Kolkata. I didn't attend the other three colleges because I researched that St. Xavier's College, Kolkata had the best Mathematics faculty. I didn't apply under any quota. I got admission directly with the help of my marks. In general, a student with 96% overall and 98 in mathematics (or above) gets admission to this college without any quota. The counseling day was used to get us acquainted with the college, classroom, teachers, etc.

"Being part of a rich heritage."

Quality of education is fairly high. Most faculty members are well qualified and helpful. Adherence to discipline and decorum is a must - so there's hardly any distraction when it comes to learning. Every topic in syllabus is covered. If one pays enough attention in classes, with little effort at home one can score really well. Exams are standardized and there's no favoritism in paper evaluations. College has great rankings in national level. Zero tolerance for untoward behavior; so it's a safe place. Other facilities including library service, access to computer lab etc are really helpful.On a personal note, the rich heritage of the college, the list of the notable alumni increased my inter
