Remarks :

The transport connectivity to the college was good and the teaching faculty for the subject which I opted for was good as well. All my coaching centres were near to my college as well, thus I could go to my college directly, right after attending the coaching classes. Near my college is College Street which is a place where one can find any book that he/she requires, be it books or magazines on GK or books for the Graduation courses( Brand-New or Used).

Admission :

First I applied to this college on the college website. Then I waited for the merit list to come once the merit list came the college instructed to come for counselling. We did our counselling and then we were sent to the office for our admissions charges to be paid. Once the whole process was done we were given date for orientation. Then we attended orientation after that a departmental orientation was organised;after all these we were asked to join classes from next week. I choose this college because it was near to my house and I needed an evening college.

Remarks :

The management is good but the infrastructure needs to be developed like the class size.

Admission :

I got admitted in 2018. From this year, the admission process began to conduct online. We had to fill the online application form from the college website and the merit list was produced according the 12th board results and the selected candidates were approved to pay the requisite admission fee online l. That's how the admission was processed.

Remarks :

The management is not very active. There are many blackboards which are broken from corners. Benches are very old. Needs very much renovation.
