Great!

This is the best in the city! Actually, I had always wished to get into this college since childhood, mostly because my parents wanted to but when it was time for me to finally enroll myself in college, I couldnt help but think of anything else. To be very honest, it is one of the premium institutes for girls, one should actually try their best and get enrolled over here.

I gave the entrance exam for English honours. I had scored 40/50 in the exam. The cumulative score, after including my +2 marks, made me eligible for the Phase 1 Admissions at Bethune College.I've always wanted to pursue English honours, and to study in a government college. To be honest, professors at government colleges are more hardworking and devoted to academics.

Heritage and Modernity come hand in hand here at Bethune College

I had scored 40 out of a total marks of 50 in the College Admission test last year. I opted for Bethune College not only because it is a Government college with a brilliant historical background, but also for it's gifted faculty. Our college, specially the Department of English, is proud to have Women of Letters as college professors. Humility and dedication brims in everywhere in this place. No wonder why I've fallen for this college so much.

Calcutta University is the first in india to provide psychology. The library is very well stacked, which is extremely important as psychology books are very expensive. The practical lab is very updated compared to other colleges in the city.
