THE JAI HIND EXPERIENCE
Jai Hind creates a very vibrant and positive college atmosphere that is conducive to learning and participating actively in whatever goes on. The management is student-friendly, and I believe that issues can be resolved through a dialogue.
I appeared for the BMM entrance examination and the score on the test would account for about 25% of the total marking. I scored about 85-90% on this test.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
The fee structure was feasible at my time. I think we paid somewhere between 10,000-15,000 every year. This was inclusive of sessions for both semesters.
Again, you have to search for jobs independently, it's been 8 years now, so I'm finding it hard to remember the names of companies that came to campus, but there weren't too many.
I can't comment on this since we did not have hostel facilities. I think you should make these questions optional.
College seniors were quite friendly and made us comfortable in the first few weeks. I don't remember any particular issues cropping up during our interactions, and remember having sharing a healthy rapport with them.
We had in-house as well as visiting faculty. The overall teaching standards maintained by both were excellent. We did face a few hiccups during our popular culture class because of the professor, however, those issues were resolved the next year.
Our class had a strength of about 60 students, 11 of which were boys. So the gender ratios were skewed. We did not have accommodation on campus, and the students who came from outside of Bombay, had to find accommodation for themselves. There was a high tolerance regarding gender, ethnicity, race, religion, and sexual orientation even, I would say.
We had exams every semester, and also presentations, assignments, and group projects that accounted for a chunk of the marks. Attendance is very important at Jai Hind, and 30 marks were allocated for being there through all the lectures. Days ranged from being chilled out to extremely hectic, depending on the deadlines that were coming up.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
The course was divided into 6 semesters - each semester had 6 subjects. In 3 years, we covered history, psychology, market research, organisational behaviour, principles of advertising, political science, effective communication skills, brand building, understanding cinema etc.
The college was not very actively involved in sourcing internships for us. We were, however, updated about opportunities sporadically. I interned on the sets of a daily soap, and I wasn't paid anything. I got this internship through someone in the family.
We have the Social and Dramatic Union (SDU), and they organise SHOUTT (SHOw Us The Talent). This is an intra-college festival. We did not have a festival for inter-college participation, as far as I can recall.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
Can't seem to recall any. But outstanding students did receive a certificate and appreciation every semester.
