MY COLLEGE IS PRETTY GOOD IN TERMS OF OPPORTUNITIES
Overall experience if you ask me, I would say they made me feel like home because I have some really good friends in the college with whom I enjoy a lot in the college but there are many restrictions too. The campus is decent. The college should focus on placement and events because that makes the college life memorable.
Maharaja Agrasen College comes under Delhi University, so the admission procedure is based on the merit. Common Admission form is released and students have to fill it, just like I filled it and then cut-offs are released for various colleges. I scored good in my 12 th standard and that made me eligible for getting admission in this college. I took this course because I wanted to do it and my seniors are doing good in this course.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
Delhi University’s fee and its academic standard are unbeatable in the country. B. Com. is not a professional course and so my fee is very low. To be exact, my fee is about Rs. 11000 without any extra charges in name of other facilities. This fee is very affordable for me.
We have got this problem of placement in my college because it is not good. No high package giving companies come and only startups come in the college for placements which do not give that good salary package. As far as students of my course are concerned, most of them don’t sit for placements as they decide to pursue higher studies.
I am not a hosteller and I have never gone inside the hostel too so I cannot comment on it. Well, my friends tell me that hostels are nice and they don’t have any problem as such about the facilities provided there. They do complain about food at times but that happens always. There are many PGs around the college and many students stay there mostly in their final years. The hostel rooms are on double sharing basis.
An Alumni Meet is organized every year and that is a nice event, and apart from that, there is no other official student-alumni interaction. Students are personally in touch with their seniors and that doesn’t contribute in college’s development but in that student’s development. I am also in touch with my seniors and I really love them for the guidance that they have given me.
I cannot comment upon the faculty in a single bracket because the experience with teachers vary greatly and that depends upon teachers and student’s mindset a lot. Many teachers have done their P. Hd. And others have atleast done their M. Com. with a lot of industrial experience. Some of them are interesting and some of them are not. The standard of teaching is just average.
The college is not that good in terms of Extra Curricular activities, however, the sports facilities and societies are doing great. I am part of the sports society so I can only tell about it. The college schedule is very tight, that leaves the students with no time to participate in other activities.
Exams is chill culture in our college as there are just exams in one semester- Mid Sem exams and End sem exams. We don’t have any labs as such so its overall very comfortable. There are just some assignment submissions in the semester and that is the case with every college.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
The course is standard as it is followed in other Delhi University’s college. The course is more of theoretical and less of practical but our teachers try their best to compensate the gap between the real-life and course by giving various examples. I am not sure about the research work as I am not that frequent to the college. I had some electives in my second and third year.
Internship fair is hosted at times but only startups come for taking students and many students also get certificates for their internships. I don’t know the average stipend because it varies from company to company. I found an internship on my own from internshala and I had a great experience.
There are very few events organized in our college when compared to other colleges of Delhi University. I do not like this thing about my college. Some of the events organized in our college Annual Day, Fresher’s party and some national holidays. The average footfall is not that good. The events are organized by the college authorities themselves.
