MY STUDENT LIFE IN THE CITY OF PALACE.
The campus is beautiful and the city was closer to my family who were based in Bangalore. My experience has been great and made lots of friends. The faculty are amazing and they are there to help you when you approach. The admission procedure was based on entrance exam. Selection criteria was your graduation marks plus your entrance marks. Then they will announce the merit list depending on the programmes you selected. For life science programmes you have common exam for 10 departments. I selected biochemistry, microbiology, genetics and molecular biology. I got selected in all 4 but I chose biochemistry because that was my subject of interest. Then I had to fill the admission form on-campus and pay fees for academic year in campus bank. Along with challan copy, I had to submit my relevant marks cards. Then the admission is complete. I chose this university on feedbacks from my seniors who studied in the same university.
Final semester students are eligible for placements. You can register for campus drive via email and you'll be notified regarding interview. For life science students campus placements are less and handful of companies arrive for campus placements. 10-12 students get placed every year with 4-5lakh per annum package. But majority of them prefer going for higher studies and thus prepare for entrance exams. If you have cleared phd entrance exams then you can apply for a spot at your professors lab and you will be getting fellowship.
Life at campus is amazing. There's a cricket stadium and indoor badminton court. Various sports events are conducted annually where you can represent university. The sport events can be solo like badminton, table-tennis or team events like handball, cricket. Cultural fests also take place around july-august every year where you may have opportunity for national level representation. Then there's NSS club who are interested in social services. The library is huge with millions of books and journals available for reference and there are places for peaceful study time. Computers and free WiFi is available to students.
