THE GOOD PART The college has a good reputation overall. As compared to other colleges it has better faculties. In 2017 St. Xavier's College was one of the few autonomous colleges in Mumbai(Now many more ave become autonomous). The best part of St. Xavier's is that you will have students coming from all over India over here, thus there is diversity in culture. Apart from academics, you will build many soft skills over here such as communication skills, leadership etc. Batch size is small so the bonding with professors is very good. You can contact them at any time, they are very supportive. It is a very inclusive campus so you will never feel left alone over here. Sports and Extracurricular activities are supported a lot at Xavier's. THE DOWNSIDES If you are someone scoring in higher 90s and expecting a lot (academically) then you might get a bit disappointed. The syllabus is not very rigorous and not much research takes place. However, you will be encouraged if you want to.
The course curriculum is not very rigorous. The curriculum is neither an application-oriented one. The curriculum is a simple research/academics oriented curriculum. However, the college will arrange for courses, workshops and guest lectures for you to enhance your application skills of the subject. FACULTY The student-faculty ratio varies from year to year and subject to subject. It may range from 1:60 to 1:30 for statistics. The student-professor bonding is very good over here. The faculties are very supportive, friendly and liberal. You can contact the faculty whenever you want to. Qualification: All of them have at least a masters degree. Some hold MPhil and PhD qualification. EXAMS there are 2 in-term exams and one final exam every semester. The questions asked in the exams are from whatever is taught in the classroom. It is not difficult to pass statistics exams. Hardly 1-2 students have KT in statistics. Few students get KT in Maths papers which they easily clear afterwards
The college placement cell will provide details of various internships available. However, companies do not come over to the college to hire interns. You will have to apply and get an internship by yourself. The placement cell will provide assistance with the same.
The college has a placement cell. Many reputed companies like McKinsey, EY, Citi Bank, Bain, PwC, AT Kerney, Times Internet etc visit the campus every year for placements. Highest package is around INR 15 LPA(ATKerney & Citi Bank), Avg around 5 LPA and lowest around 3 LPA. (Numbers are not official numbers). 30-40% of students who sit for placement get placed (This is my observation, not official numbers) Some students choose to go abroad to pursue their masters. I continued masters within India.
The BSc course is an Aided course and thus the fees are nominal. The fees may vary from 5000 to 9000 per year depending upon subject and year of study. Scholarship opportunities from the Government will be displayed on the notice board. The college has a student beneficiary fund to help the needful and deserving students. The college provided financial assistance to one of my friend in my batch. The college has no on-campus job for students with a stipend for financial help. Hostel and living expenses will be higher as the college is located in the southern part of Mumbai where real estate rates are very high. Fees like is usually 5-8% annually (This is based on my observation, there is no prescribed policy for fees hike)
The college will definitely rank in the top 10 in India in this aspect. CAMPUS AND INFRASTRUCTURE The campus is not too big but the structure is magnificent. You can see the college in many movies and TV series (Vaaste song, Hichki, Kabir Singh, Sacred Games and many more). There are adequate facilities on campus. One of the major downsides is that we don't have a big dedicated sports ground. The Quadrangle is available for playing sports but there are restrictions. SOCIAL LIFE & EXTRACURRICULARS You will have the best social life over here. There are at least 5-6 fests in college every year( Including malhar: google it out). There are many clubs run by students- Social service league, AICUF, DIRS are few of them. Every department has their own club (Stats society, Eco circle etc). Sports is also supported a lot here, we have a sports day every year. You can check my Quora for more info as I have run out of word limit, and the list is endless
There is a counselling session for assigning the desired subject combination and in-person verification of the student and documents. No subject related questions or personal questions are asked in this counselling session.

St. Xavier's College (my college) is better than this one
This college is ranked one of the best in India, but more than that, I chose this college for it's holistic curriculum and diverse crowd. During my time here, I was not only involved with my subjects, but also had a chance to explore other streams and subjects. Everyday, there was some festival or workshop being organised in the college, which gave us opportunities to work while having fun, as well as participate and learn new things. The college has strict guidelines to complete a certain number of hours volunteering in an NGO, and also for participating in extracurriculars. This ensured that all students are exposed to more than just academics.All in all,there are ample opportunities available that help a person grow in any direction thay want to.
There is a dedicated placement cell in the college. Students can enroll themselves to the cell and be notified about opportunities. Big companies like Accenture, Zomato and even banks come to recruit students.
Discipline and good teaching faculty with strict surroundings and environment. Along with studies collg activities help us to improve our skills. Practicals are taught with very sincere attitude. Proper checking of journals.
Our college provides placement. There are number of cells. One of the cell is placement cell. This placement cell arranges many seminars to let us know how to face GD and clear it out how to face rejections and many other things regarding job placement. According to my knowledge our college seniors are placed in Amazon, cisco etc.
On online basis merit list.you have to fill the form online as well as offline for admission and then you have to contact college office for fees and admission process and then college will take your documents and then done!
No. Our college doesn't provide placement this is the weak point of our college this should be change and very soon we will provide placement and hope you get admitted to our college as soon as possible
About college just because if autonomy college design there own syllabus and they tell us to reffer the different book so it is quite difficult to find what is good for exam is quite difficult and those who attends lecture regularly they don't need to take tension but those student who don't attend lecture , it's quite difficult for them to clear the exams
SFS college in located in Seminary hills area where there are many trees and hence we all experience cool environment around us. There are latest computers available in lab and our college have big library where there are many many books available for us. Hence I love my college and my college life.
