College management is perfect, just only negative point being they sometimes take too much time to reach a decision, rest everything is perfect.
Indian Statistical Institute, generally referred to ISI, is a research institute and the curriculum is also mostly designed according to that and thus demands extremely hard work and effort to put in. But this curriculum also attracts many corporate organizations and the average payment for my batch this year also was around 20 LPA. No industrial visit is done and I don't think it's even needed.
The placements as I mentioned earlier also are the best that one can hope for. The recruitment drive is conducted around October every year and many world famous companies are a part of the drive. The placements are around 100% every year (for students who sit in placement, since everyone doesn't sit for placements and go for PHD's). No special preparation, our course is enough for that.
There is annual fest, known as Integration which has three chapters, each for a different weekend. The different chapters are technical, cultural and sports. It's too much at each of these, e.g. this year Local Train visited the campus. Then we have other ecents like farewell, freshers etc
There is no fee for any course in our institute. Infact, we get stipend from institute. For masters, we get 8000 per month from institute. At time of admission, we have to pay a minimum library fee, which is also refunded at end of the course. The stipend is put in our account at every month end for each month.
We don't have to avail for any scholarship, since every student by himself gets a stipend and infact, if we apply for any other scholarship, we won't be eligible for that stipend. The only eligibility for stipend is you must maintain a percentage of 60 every sem to continue stipend in next sem.
The campus life is extremely amazing since we have very less number of students, every student nearly knows everyone else personally. Students from different states come together at this institution. Even I'm from Haryana and studying here in Kolkata. The gender ratio isn't very good, around 4× more boys than girls. Not much competitions are held. Students are from various economic status too. Infact, my father's average salary is around 10-15K a month and I'm studying here far from my home since I don't need to take any monetary help from my family.
Yes, I've opted for hostels. The hotels are not extremely good and well maintained. The rooms are too small and that too has to be shared between two persons. We have to pay 300 per month for the hostel which doesn't matter since we get 8000 every month from college. The college mess is also extremely bad.
Alumni network for our College is not so strong. But seniors are far more than helpful, be it study or any other issue, they are always ready to help us.
Firstly, there is written text which is conducted around Mid May every year which comprises of two exams, one objective and one subjective. Through result of written exam, an interview list is prepared and interviews happen in June end and then final merit list is shared.
The faculty is extremely hard-working. All the profs are PHD's from well known Universities around the world. All of them are well known for their research works too. The classes for each subject is 4 hours a week and student is also expected to put around the same time at his room too.
As this course is mainly research-oriented, students completing this program are taught to clear PhD entrance exams to get into the research field. Placement is certainly not the first choice of students. But if a student wants to get into industry then an industrial internship during the summer internship program will be of major help.
Good : Admission process is quite easy consisting of 1 exam PUMDET, followed by declaration of results on the website, 1 day verification of documents happen. Nice professors, good lab facility, class conditions very good, all equipped with AC and projector, syllabus made in accordance with NET syllabus, course helps to learn new techniques that will be useful in upcoming years(for PhD)Bad : Presidency keeps a quota for old B. Sc students and also takes new students through examination, this creates a divide as ex-students consider themselves to be superior, that creates tension amongst students and sometimes dirty politics as well.
Yes there's a written examination before admission. It's an MCQ exam named PUMDET. Basic B. Sc syllabus is enough to prepare for this exam, only the concepts have to be clear.
I tool ISI JEE entrance examination. I never came to know how much I scored in entrance examination; ISI never reveals that; neither they shares rank. ISI only sends selection letter. I scored 76% in M.Stat. I opted for this particular college as this is the best college in ASIA in its curriculum.
Excellent placement opportunities each student used to get 3 to 4 offers.
