Admission :

I had entered M.Arch program in SPA Vijayawada through GATE exam. There is also another method for getting into this course that is through JET exam conducted by SPA Vijayawada. I chose this College as this College is currently best which provides masters in Sustainable Architecture.

Remarks :

The circulum and academics in the College is really good. But there are a bit of dissatisfaction in students regarding few things which is common everywhere. We put on our issues and request for the changes. Upon recommendations from the concerned authorities we do get positive replies and actions for our problems.

Could functiom better with a transparent team. The infrastructure is top class while the rules and regulations may seem a little out of place. The staff too are not equipped to deal with an instituition of national importance.

Admission :

I had to write JEE Mains paper 2 to enter into the college, my rank was in 2000s AIR. I had to go through JOSAA counseling in which I had to choose my college preferences. After that, the JOSAA assigns you to a college according to your rank and college preferences. They give approximately a week time to go to the college for counseling. You'll have to take your original and xeroxed documents to the College. Documents which include 10th certificate,12th certificate, Aadhar card, bonafide certificate from school, passport size photos and a doctor certification of your health condition. After verifying all these details they start the formalities for your admission. Paying the fees and orientation of the course you have joined in.

Remarks :

SPAV has many facilities and funds that have been given for the student learning and welfare must be spent in a wiser way. There is little power to the students for student affairs and culturals as there is no student counsel. There is a huge process of taking permissions from different authoritative members for even a small event which is very time consuming especially for a course like ours.

Admission :

I got it through the CSAB Round of Allotment 2018,the one After the seven rounds of allotment. The CBSE gives such an oppurtunity to average student like me to study in such a reputed College by giving me a second chance .

Remarks :

College is good though,Good faculty, But not much foreign lectures or anything like that, the faculty members will be mostly architectects. So it is better to be an architecture student over here. Planning suveys are most likely to be held within th state so exposure such a way is very poor.

Admission :

To get admission in this institute one need to qualify jee main entrance exam with an excellent marks and rank. Moreover one need to secure their 75% marks in their 12th board exam. After the starting of JOSSAA counseling one need to fill up the preference of college one need to persue. According to the rank the students will be allotted the college. There will be 4 to 5 rounds in JOSSAA counseling in which the students will be allotted a college and a course from the preferences filled up by the students. However there are options of sliding and floating the allotments by CBSE which conducts JEE MAIN entrance exam. Once the allotments are done, the date of admission will be decided and one have to report to the college on the allotted date for the verification of documents and fee payment. Once the process is done, the tentative date for classes will be decided.

Remarks :

College is very nice and very lively. Seniors are always there for support. Management of the college is also nice.

Admission :

Once the spot round ended we just had two days gap to report in the college. The college administration was quite supportive during the admission procedures. The application and filling of choices can be done in any national institutes like nit, spa, iiit or iit. It is different in different states. Once your choice is locked reporting to the college has to be done.

Remarks :

A very good experience overall. But learning is self taught mostly. It depends on the personal interests and dedication. The most important thing is exposure which is good in this college.
