I chose PGDAV(M) College because of it's highly reputable Mathematics faculty. But the College atmosphere and infrastructure is not as pleasing as the faculty. There are severe network issues in the new wing, and medical and hygiene facilities are poor. College admits students based on cutoff(s) released by Delhi University in the month of July. The admission committee of the college manages the process very smoothly and the students don't have to wait for hours or rush here and there for due formalities. PGDAV is mainly known for it's faculty (and the canteen as well, which is the biggest canteen among all DU Colleges). I, or anyone should opt for this college due to it's well-experienced faculty in every department. The teachers are highly qualified and supportive of the students. I browsed and researched through Collegedunia to select tjis college.
The course curriculum of B.Sc. (H) Mathematics is very fine. It prepares the students for further studies in the field of mathematics, computation, engineering, applications of math, actuarial, etc. I chose this course because I want to study pure mathematics in depth. The faculty to student ratio of the college is about 1:40. There are roughly 5 subjects in each semester and around 7 professors in total (including lab faculty) for every semester. The faculty is highly qualified, with most of them being PHD holders with a solid background in research and teaching. The term exams are conducted in the months of December and May. Being regularly thorough with the concepts and practicing questions based on previous year papers helps in having a clear image of what the paper would look like. It is not easy to pass the exam without regular studies and a good hold of the concepts. The difficulty level is average to difficult.
The placement cell of our college is active throughout the year. Most of the roles offered to revolve around marketing, sales, management, content writing, copywriting and graphic designing, data analyst, and research analyst. Here are some of the companies that offered internships over the past year- Open Sense Labs, RSBG Business Consultant, Feedough, Moodagent, Awign, Digipplus, Skillgenic Academy, Reliance Jio, Netomi, Panamera Design, Airtel, Zomato, Phonepe, Houseitt, Coho. The stipend provided by the companies can range anywhere from performance-based to 20,000/-
Students become eligible for campus placements in their sixth semester. The placement cell of PGDAV(M) is well reputed and around 60-70 companies visit our college for placements every year but there is not much available for students in Mathematics Hons. The average package offered to students of this course is 3lpa. The percentage of students getting placement after three years is less than 10. Most of the students opt for this course as the basics for higher studies. I too will be giving entrance exams for master after this course.
The fees and expenditure in this course are minimal. The course is a 3-year program. Following is the approximate fee break-up of every year- Annual fee: 14,000/- Examination fee: 200-400/- The fee charged by the college are according to the guidelines set by Delhi University for all its colleges. The College also has the provision of EWS criteria for admission if the student belongs to the economically weaker section. The college is situated close to bus stops and metro station hence making travel very convenient and affordable. Affordable PG(s) can be found easily in all the neighboring residential areas like Nehru Nagar, Vinobapuri, Amar Colony, etc.
Campus life is not very exciting throughout the year except for August and March. During August, you get to witness loads of Cultural societies conducting their auditions and orientations in the campus premises which is one helluva experience to have in your college life. Along with that, you get to see the buzz of DUSU elections on the campus. On your first couple of days, different candidates would try to woo you by giving you chocolate, roses, and free movie tickets, so you can have some nice days of free entertainment. In March, Hyperion the Cultural Society of the college conducts its annual fest Aaghaz. It is one of the most awaited fests in DU and every year, students get to see well-known artists perform. The whole college is decorated During those days and students from all across Delhi attend the fest. Else, you can always hang in the canteen or check out the library. There might not be many books over there but you can go through the e-library for more stuff

The placements are good but not for every program like they do offer to sit in the placements for every course students but the companies which come for recruitment are mainly looking for students from commerce background. I am not saying that people from other courses do not get placed at all but if you're from a commerce background there is a high chance for you to get placed.
Lots of placement comes in the 3rd or final year of college. A lot of students get placement and some don't. Some companies give the highest packages but some don't. Many give 1.2lacs per year package as they are hiring Freshers but later on salaries can be increased according to your performance but mostly commerce and art sides get more placements
I have heard that the placement opportunities are great here and the candidates are offered 6 digit salaries in the first year of being a graduate itself. Placement opportunities are given to the students in their final year and after a round of selection and interviews, the deserving candidates are selected.
Our college doesn't provide placement for undergraduates but excellent placements are offered for post-graduate. DU itself is a very good and renowned University hence its fame helos the students to get good placements My aim after completing my undergraduate is to do post-graduation
The placement cell of the college is very much active. The placement package is quite good. But it depends much on the qualification of the candidate that how's s/he has performed. Otherwise, college placement is all good as the reputation enjoyed by the college is attentive. Many alma matters are very much famous, which make internship companies and placement companies fall for Hansraj college. So in literal terms, college placement is no less than others. ( As per many seniors, the average package goes like 3-4 lakh per annum to 7 -9 lakhs per annum). It may rise high, depending on the qualification of student and level of the company.
LSR has an active Placement Cell, the highlight of the college. It brings internship opportunities and job offers for its students. It is headed by 5 coordinators, 2 sub-coordinators, a Research & Training Head and a Treasurer, who are supported by 31 department representatives, 25 members and 11 core team members. LSR brings in internship opportunities for the first, second and third-year students including summer internship programs for the second and third years. Bank of America, HUL, Puma and Citibank have recruited interns. In the academic year 2019-20, 100 companies visited the campus to offer jobs to students of which 110 were recruited. Industry giants like McKinsey & Company, Bain & Company, LEK Consulting, Accenture, Gartner, FTI Consulting, Citibank and EY Parthenon were invited. Despite the economic slump due to COVID-19, the highest package offered was INR 30 LPA and the average package was INR 9.4 LPA.
The placement of the college is very good from the 2nd semester you become eligible for campus placement. There are 20-30 companies who visited for the interview and the lowest package is 5-6 lakhs and the maximum package is 25-30 lakhs. There are 80% of the students got their placement in their college time and earn many more from that. I want to go for civil services after my graduation.
Placements are good but for students of commerce, mathematics or computer sciences. But for my course that is botany there are not good job offers atleast for the graduate students. Mostly student prefers to undergo masters after graduation. But if you want a job you can get that through placement cell but they dont pay well. Deloitte, Accenture, TCS, etc many renowned companies as well as startup companies offer jobs.
It is the only College in Delhi University which provide physical and health education. Only UGC recognised College to provide bsc in physical education. It is affordable for all types of students as it's a govt College and tuition fee is not too much.
At that time I was facing some health issues as this college is nearer to me comparatively to other so I opted for it. Also the college is surrounded by lots of plants and trees so you feel absolutely fresh all the time. Brings positivity.
