LIFE IN COLLEGE
The college lacks infrastructure but definately makes up by the quality of the teachers available the co curricular activities in the college and the most importantly the fact that lies under delhi university finally makesup for it.
I took many engineering entrance examinations like jee mains,entrance for ip university and many more but ended up doing maths hons fron delhi university as i was not able to get in agood engineering college. Since i was a science student therefore i had a particular interest in mathematics as many science subjects include maths. I scored distinction in every subject in class 12 and got maximum marks in maths therefore i opted for maths hons in delhi university.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
The fee structure of almost every college in the delhi university is quite feasible. They charged me about 10 thousand for the year and 1000 each in every semester as examination fees which hardly brings about the total to 15-20 thousand per year. But the infrastructure of these colleges are very average as they are controlled by government which results in so affordable fee structure.
I am in fifth semester i cannot briefly tell you about that but as i keep talking to my seniors i got to know they got selected and got packages upto 3 lacks per annum which is great after graduation.
I do not live in a hostel or PG but the conditions of living are quite ordinary as described by many friends living in PGs. You may get better facilities but that obviously amounts to a greater sum of money which many avoid.
The seniors are very helpful and being in the basketball team in the college i got a lot of advice from my seniors regarding the balance to be maintained with academics while playing sports at the same time.
The college faculty was very experienced and every teacher in the college was highly qualified. The teachers helped us very much. Being science students we had to study more as the given subjects required more attention and time. The teachers were very helpful and were always there to clear all our doubts
The gender ratio in the college is male dominant.The number of girls are less than the boys. The college organises a cultural fest every year.it lasts for three days. the activities in first day considering games events a number of food stalls in the college which comprises of great fun for the students.the second day includes a talent hunt where students from all departments participate quite enthusiastically.And the final day usually ends by a star night where usually a pop star is invited to entertain all students.Every year a diffent star is invited and most number of students turn out for such events. Every year the college organises sports fest for all students. The main purpose of this fest is for all students to come ahead and participate in every sport or event they always wanted to play or try.A lot of students turn up for the event and it is concluded by a prize giving ceremony where all participants are awarded with a participation certificate and students who win the tournaments are awarded with trophies and medals.
The college has a semester system.every six months exams of all subjects are conducted.every subject holds 100 marks 75 for theory 25 for internals and two subjects have practicals of 50 marks each.The days with practicals were quite hectic whereas theory days were chilled out.but friday was the day with more than 5 lectures of one hour each which turned out to be the worst day of the week. Thankfully there were no practicals on this day.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
The course curriculm was very extensive and detailed.I enjoyed doing maths and that helped me all along but the level of difficulty was higher. In the final year the syllabus got extended and i ended up giving five examinations in one semester. Since being a off campus college the teachers and students are quite interested in academics and we regulary have our classes.
Many companies like wipro and infosys came to the college placement cell last year. The college has a active placement cell. Many companies come in college mostly in december.As i am in fifth semester i do not know much about that.
The college hosts many cultural and academic events throughout the year.There are a number of cultural events happening in the college on a daily basis.almost every department in college holds a seperate fest like the mathematics department fest or economics department fest. These fests include lots of events like treasure hunt,games and many more. The college also organises many educational trips.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
Every year the university conducts a test for scholarships to the first year students. Three or four kids from every department are offered scholarships given the participated i the test and secured highest marks in the class.I participated in one of these. I also gave the test but did not secure high marks in class to gain a scholarship.
