No entrance just SSC. The atmosphere and the vibe was wonderful. I knew I wanted to be here right at the time I was in queue for admissions.
I filled in the form like everyone else and got admission. Back then 75% could make it to the Sindhi quota cut-off list! It wasn't a difficult procedure and a little back and forth had to be done to submit forms but all in all it was done. Once I knew my name was on the list, little could stop me.
There are 2 canteens at Jai Hind and both are excellent. The food is available at a subsidised rate. However, things have changed in the past 6 years and as of now, a lot of brands sell their stuff out there and the old, lovely canteen people are no longer there.
You need to register as a member of the alumni and then you are a part of the network. You can keep coming each year at the alumni party. The seniors are very attached to the college and keep visiting it for a very long time.
On a large part the faculty is good. They are quite open and receiving and do not bring their conservative attitudes to the class. They do not make our decisions for us and never interfere in our personal lives. There are absolutely no impositions. The teachers are extremely well versed with their subject and heavily experienced.
The exam structure is as per UGC norms. It was as chilled out as anything could be. We had enough study leave to prepare, an extensive library and teachers were always there to help us out if we needed them. Though Jai Hind is popular for tough papers, I'd say, it is good to have tough papers. It worked for us in the longer run. or rather for me, personally.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
The course structure is amazing. There is a hardcore focus on research and very little spoon feeding. You are trusted upon to get the best possible results for yourself and people are more or less there to help you out as much as you need them. A very extensive portion of the subject is covered in the curriculum.
There was a placement committee that took care of things. Internships are provided for courses where it is required otherwise the students take assistance from the placement committee.
Talash is quite popular. Internally we are keen on the personality quiz, Dhoom of HP, GSM, LDS debates among other things. We had a good time participating in these festivals. We also often win at Malhar, Kshitij, Umang and other festivals. However, we are always big on internal events and festivals.
