MY COLLEGE REVIEW

  • 7.5/10Ratings

    REMARKS

    The discipline in the college is admirable. Lack of political activities has made it what a college exists for in the first place, that is, pursuing higher studies. Every year, Semester VI student is given a chance to provide a thorough, detailed review and feedback of the college without any fear of persecution. This is truly remarkable.

  • FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES

    As St. Xavier's College is a Jesuit institution, the fees are moderately low. For the English course, the down payment ranges from 18,000 to 21,000. The yearly fees for my course were approximately 6,100 per quarter for the first two years, and then 5,500 or so for the final year. The total cost was roughly 100,000 to 150,000.

    PLACEMENT WING

    The college does have a placement cell. However, I have not availed of this facility. There is little I can add regarding this matter.

  • ADMISSION

    Passed ISC from St. Xavier's Collegiate School adjacent to the college. There is no written admission test. The college is infamous for its high cut-offs. For an ISC humanities student enrolling for an art course, the selection process goes like this. Marks in the subject for which one is enrolling is doubled and added to the aggregate percentage.

  • ALUMNI

    The college has an established alumni network. However, since I passed out only recently, I am yet to establish any meaningful contact with them.

  • 10 /10Ratings

    FACULTY

    The faculty is the backbone of the college and the prime reason for its lasting fame and reputation. St. Xavier's particularly famous for its Commerce faculty and English faculty. The English department boasts of brilliant scholars with an astounding profundity of knowledge and a fun, entertaining way of imparting it in the classroom. As an alumnus, to note their accomplishments would be to show off.

  • 6 /10Ratings

    CAMPUS LIFE

    Thanks to the strict implementation of rules, the college campus feels like a safe haven. Reports of harassment of any kind have been negligible. The college provides ample scope for participation in extracurricular events. However, participation in these may come at the expense of attendance.

  • 8 /10Ratings

    COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW

    The course curriculum is fairly orthodox but nonetheless enjoyable. The English course included a brief history of English literature. It then covered selected works from the era of the Renaissance, the Wits, the Neo-Classicists, the Pre-Romantics, and the Romantics, then moving on to the Victorian era, Modernists and Post-Modernists, and included some American literature.

  • 6 /10Ratings

    COLLEGE EVENTS

    The college hosts a huge number of events. Different fests are organized by different departments of the college. Among these, the biggest is the one held by the English department, known as Literaria. This is a cultural event that is held with a view to promoting and celebrating literary skills. Many colleges compete in this fest in skit contests, writing contests, slam poetry contests, art contests, and so on. The winner is the college with the maximum wins across all events.

  • LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS

    I am unaware of any scholarship or education loan provided by St. Xavier's College. Even if it exists, I have not availed myself of this facility. There is little I can add regarding this matter.

Where The Past Meets The Present and Yields To A Beautiful Future

Remarks -

The University has a wonderful vibe and energy which is well-suited for students to study and interact with. However, student politics is also very strong with 3 leading parties struggling for power. The students will be put under no pressure to participate in such activities against their will. The authority is well-functioning but there is a lot of scope for improvement. All in all, the university provides a great space for students from all cultures and economic backgrounds to come together and study in.


Entrance Preview -

The university holds entrance examinations of its own for the course I opted for (English Honours). I scored 75/100 in that entrance test. Presidency University has an exemplary faculty in the English department and is known for its liberal nature when it comes to student participation.

Again, I am uninformed on the same. The college does have an active placement cell, but I do not have knowledge or information regarding the companies or their packages.
