Ques. Which is better, Christ University Bangalore or St. Xavier's College, Kolkata?

● Top Answer By Girish Singh on 22 Feb 21

Ans. Christ University and St. Xavier’s College both are quite good colleges but the choice relies on various factors like : Department Apart from overall ranking; the focus should be on the ranking of the department you wish to get admitted into.  Christ University is famous for its undergraduate courses prominently the commerce and hotel management while St. Xavier’s is famous for its postgraduate courses.  Ranking Christ University has been accredited with QS India Rankings, The Week, Dalal Street Journal Rankings.  St. Xavier’s also holds NAAC A++ ranking for a longer perspective.  Scholarships: Financial Assistance scholarships are a valid point in the Christ university to focus upon.  Merit and Financial Assistance Scholarships are a major point to focus upon. Placement Statistics The placement statistics has an excellent record of placement in different organizations in the past 20 years. The placement percentage is also quite high. The highest and average packages are also quite decent. UNIVERSITY Highest Package Average Package Recruiters St. Xavier’s University Rs. 20.5 LPA Rs. 5 LPA Deloitte, Google, Oberoi Group, HDFC Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank, Zomato Christ University Rs. 13.2 LPA Rs. 6.85 LPA KPMG, Accenture ICICI Bank, E&Y A major choice also rests on the point of location. Xavier's is the best institute when it comes to West Bengal unlikely its comparison with others on national level. Christ is also a major institute in South India and it also gets favored due to its presence in Bengaluru. Although it has two campuses in Pune and Delhi too. Hence; decision is purely analytical. The decision regarding which to choose depends strictly on your interest points & parameters in general. The choice should be made wisely and pro-actively.Read more

Ques. Which is a better option for studying statistics, St. Xavier's College, Kolkata or Presidency University, Kolkata?

● Top Answer By Abanti on 22 Feb 21

Ans. Both colleges are great options for studying statistics.  Presidency University has a glorious history and the department of Statistics is one of the best departments. The university has great alumni which makes it score higher in terms of ‘Heritage’. One of the most famous names among them is P.C. Mahalanobis. There are dedicated faculty members like Prof. BR and Prof. PD, who is an alumnus himself.  One of my friends has Statistics as his electives but he never got the chance to be taught by these reputed faculty members. Students are highly dedicated and excels in their respective university exams. Graduates from this college pursued post-graduate studies from reputed universities like ISI, CMI, IMSc, etc. If you have Honours in Statistics with Mathematics and Economics, then it will be a great combination. In terms of environment, you will get a sense of freedom at Presidency and a change to form a opinion on various aspects of life. However, St. Xavier’s College is also good but it is very strict and you will get a feel of school there. It is known for its discipline while Presidency University is know for its creativity.Read more

Ques. Which is better for a B.Sc in Chemistry (Hons.), St. Xavier's Kolkata or Jadavpur University?

● Top Answer By Pranjal Singhal on 22 Feb 21

Ans. The general preference is that none of the two colleges is a feasible option for pursuing B.Sc (Chemistry). The reasons behind this are listed separately below for both the colleges: Xavier’s is not a good option for chemistry. The faculty is not equipped in teaching in-depth concepts. They do not provide the requisite exposure for broadening a student's knowledge base. A general tendency of faculties is that they don’t recommend books. A huge amount of knowledge is gained by using internet sources which in turn makes them dependent on electronic sources. Internal politics is also an inevitable element of the campus culture. A lot of distraction is inherent in the day-to-day activities. Jadavpur University also gives very less exposure in terms of the knowledge base. A large amount of attention is focused on internal politics which hampers the educational and professional growth of the candidates. Both the colleges reflect quite a dismal picture for this particular course, but even if the choice has to be made it will shift towards Xavier’s Kolkata as in: It is the only NAAC Accredited A++ institute in West Bengal making your degree more reputed and acceptable. It will provide larger scope for better career options in the market. It allows individuals to look out to different personality domains of a candidate as it gives opportunity in the form of various cultural & social events. Overall, Xavier’s is a better option than Jadavpur University in every aspect.Read more

Ques. Among JADAVPUR University, ST XAVIER'S AND CALCUTTA University, which is best to pursue B. Sc. in mathematics Honors?

● Top Answer By Aniket Atul Mahulikar on 11 Jan 21

Ans. Among the three mentioned universities, Jadavpur University is the best to pursue BSc in mathematics Honours without any doubt. The classes are assured regularly and rigorous for those who desire to have a future in mathematics; there should be no doubt in selecting JU.  Comparison: (Winning Institution - Jadavpur University) St. Xaviers became a university recently. A BSc degree from JU holds more value than a bachelor’s degree from St. Xaviers.  Jadavpur University was ranked 196th in Asia by The World University Ranking 2020. The faculty at JU is top-notch. The syllabus adopted by JU is of advantage if you want to pursue higher studies after your degree. You will have better exposure at Jadavpur through regular seminars. Attending seminars delivered by guest faculty from distinguished National institutes, and your seniors pursuing masters and Ph.D. will make an immense difference. If you are choosing St. Xaviers because of the campus, you should visit the Jadavpur University campus.  The classes are regular, and JU follows a rigorous pedagogy. The political environment people talk about is quite exaggerated. If you don't get involved in campus politics, it is never going to bother you.  Jadavpur University contributes much more than just a degree that gives you quality education, which is not restricted to classroom learning. They make sure the students turn into the person they can be and gives them the confidence that no other college in Kolkata does.Read more

Loan/ Scholarship Provisions :

The fees of the college are paid quarterly. The admission fees for this course is Rs.15,000 and later on, during the semesters we have to pay a quarter feed of Rs.11,500. The fees of my department are partially helped by the Government. The cost to study is very affordable although students can reduce such costs by getting through different Scholarships.

St. Xavier's College (Autonomous), Kolkata is one of the best and top 10 colleges in India offering quality education to all. The college is known for its Commerce Stream education.

The college has a good reputation and its B.Com degree has a great value in the corporate sector. Apart from all the pros, there are a few cons like the college does not engage its students in extracurricular activities. Extra activities are always an option rather than being compulsory upto a certain limit. The morning batch timings are very hectic where the students have to be in the college premises by 6 A.M. The admission process is simple. Candidates have to fill a form and wait for fir the selection list to be published. Follow by the selection list there is a personal interview and if you clear that then the candidate is selected for admission.

"A brief review of St. Xavier's College, Kolkata"

This college was a reputed and well-known one. It has prestigious alumni and is known for its discipline and results. The college is apolitical with strict rules and regulations. While applying for colleges after my board exams, many people recommended this college to me. The admission is on the basis of 12th board marks and takes place in the month of June. The session starts in the month of July, in the first week. The college being strict can prove to be a major drawback at times. Often, the administration takes certain abrupt decisions without empathizing with the students. The students have no voice and their demands are rarely met. Overall, if you are a disciplined first-bencher lookin
