    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.

The college management is great in terms of administration but if there is one thing that can be changed perhaps it would be the lift of clothing rules since a lot of students struggle to keep up with it.

Gurudas College - a college to get admission

Remarks -

College is quite good in every aspect. Everything from faculty to senior to infrastructure is quite good. But, I think the college administration needs to be more strict and disciplined. Also, they must change the water filters regularly.
