The college is a cesspool of political drama and a tyrannical principal. Please avoid at all costs.
The course is absolute garbage, as noone will ever require the skills in real life. They teach English literature mainly old English which makes no sense in the modern day. Additionally the teachers are not interested in teaching to say the least, not to mention the rest of the faculty will only converse in Bengali and not pay attention to anyone speaking in English. The only career you can take with this is to become a teacher or a professor.
There is no placement in the college, you have to fend for yourself once you leave the college. We could only dream of the college holding a career day where the students can interact with different offices. However nothing was held.
The events include a fest which happens annually, just a way for couples to dance with each other on the road which is closed down. They also have Christmas programs and a morning assembly which is hardly attended. These events are attended to very meticulously by the students with a small budget. Most students like to participate.
2500 per year for special admission and 4500 per year for general students. The only mode of payment accepted is cash. No extra fees are accepted for the course, purely based on merit. The college is very transparent in fee breakdowns. There is also a fee for examinations.
I did not apply for any scholarship or any education loan. If I had, I would not have joined this college ever.
Gender ratios is 5:1 in favour of the girls. In our class there was approximately 50 girls and 10 guys. The labs are not well maintained and there are no extracurricular activities. The boys common room is the best place to hangout if you don't not mind the extra smoke. They have a table tennis board which is used for table tennis and occasional card games. The girls common room have a table tennis board which is used for placing make up. There is only sports competitions which people hardly participate and there are no spectators, this boosts morale as whoever attends gets a medal.
Very few seniors are genuinely helpful, most have a tendency to strike fear into the juniors, not in terms of ragging but in mentioning how hard the subjects are. The alumni is non functional.
Scottish Church College is a well known name in terms of English Honours. The process is simple, as a Christian College, they offer quota admission and it's based on 12th pass marks. They select candidates then after a small test which is given on the day of joining. Immediately they collect payment.
There are approximately 5 lecturers for English specifically. Each for prose, poetry, history of English language and history of English literature, as well as philology. Of these, 2 teachers would much rather gossip about particular students instead of teaching them. They are all however qualified professionals. Additionally there are two optional subjects taken which the teachers never showed up.
On average, 60% of the students got placements in the college. The highest salary offered was Rs. 30,000, the lowest was Rs. 8,000 per month and the average was Rs. 12,000. The mechanic, accountants, assistant manager, etc., were the roles offered to students in the college. About 45% of the students got internships from the college with a minimum of Rs. 5,000 to a maximum of Rs. 10,000 stipend during the internship. There is a placement cell in the college, it is much efficient and useful for students.
The students become eligible for placements in their third year of the undergraduate program. Companies like Zomato, Itc, Cognizant have conducted placement drives in the college. Salaries range from 1 to 3 lakhs per annum. A dedicated placement cell is in place for conducting the placements.
See, the university is not a commercial one. You can pursue honours, Masters, PhD and certificate courses in the university. There is no such campus placement system but the university has an employment cell which is mainly for those who pursue honours in foreign languages such as French, Italian, Russian, Chinese, Japanese and many others.
I got admission in this college by passing my (10+2) Examination from any recognized board for eg. CBSE. The college released it's first cut off list and i got admission on the basis of Merit. Later, I was called for counselling to verify my subjects.
The college has placement and internship programs which is available to the students throughout the year for their benefits. Career counselling sessions are also organized by the college for the students to keep them updated.
My college is one of the superb colleges as all the students here get best facilities that can enhance their learning experience. All the class rooms are large, spacious and capable to accommodate large number of students. Most of the class rooms have smart boards, projectors and sound systems with internet facility.
