  • 9.3/10Ratings

    REMARKS

    The college management is organized and updated. Our college officials are approachable, and punctual indeed. Necessary Information is communicated to the students and respective departments as soon as possible.

  • ENTRANCE PREVIEW

    I had scored 40 out of a total marks of 50 in the College Admission test last year. I opted for Bethune College not only because it is a Government college with a brilliant historical background, but also for it's gifted faculty. Our college, specially the Department of English, is proud to have Women of Letters as college professors. Humility and dedication brims in everywhere in this place. No wonder why I've fallen for this college so much.

  • FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES

    The fee structure is very much feasible. The monthly fees of the college is about Rs 100. At the time of admission, an amount if less than Rs 1500 is paid, which is not at all expensive. Hence, I don't think the college fees would be an issue. Again, there are various scholarships provided by the college for the students.

    PLACEMENT WING

    Every year, our college organises Campus Recruitment Drives for the 3rd year as well as the Postgraduate students. Companies including tech giants like Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Cognizant, as well as firms like Netscribes, have come to our campus and the students have passed with flying colours.

  • ADMISSION

    I got details from the college website itself. From there, I got the particular website from where the admission form is to be filled up and the necessary amount of Monet submitted. Admission tests for English and Bengali are held, a few weeks after which the merit lists are released. The dates of admission are declared, so are the documents required to complete the procedure. You need not have any issues! Simply check the college website!

    HOSTEL FACILITIES

    There are no hostel facilities as of now. But, there are many PGs and Hostels situated close to the college campus, right at the heart of North Kolkata. These PGs and Hostels are cheap, provide comfortable accommodation and good food, according to some of my classmates who themselves stay at PGs and Hostels.

  • ALUMNI

    Our Student Union is very helpful and friendly. Our alumni network too is very strong. They still share a strong bond with the college. The confluence of the ex-students with the youngsters is a beautiful sight to see every time.

Review of my department and university.

Placement -

The students are employable after they complete their masters. The placements likely take place in sociology department. As I am an English student I don't know about the package but I heard it is handsome. The average students getting placement is high. I want to go to research after getting the degree.

Remarks -

It's a two hundred year old, prestigious university. The faculty seemed great, and my interest was research. So it all fell into place. I liked the ambience, small batch factor, and great amenities they provided.


Placement -

The alumni network is great, but placements are few. Recruiters don't come around that often, and that's why a lot of interested people don't get placed, and have to seek alternative methods of getting employed. Thus, it's better to come here only for someone who wants to do research and stay in academia in the future.

My college in my eyes

Remarks -

There is nothing negative to say about my college. This college is situated in the proper place with proper communication system. Any student can reach this college by bus or by train. Though that time the buildings are not so updated now the buildings are quite modified and modern. So for this time the college is only the bearer of positive remarks.

MMCC - A gem among the underdog

Remarks -

Being a govt-aided college, the infrastructure and facilities are really not something one might consider as top-notch or best. The management too can be pretty careless and inconsiderate at times. However the best outcome from the fact is that the college enjoys experienced and skilled faculty members.
