GARGI THE CAREER ENHANCER
My college is the best college I could have dreamt to be in. It was made so by the faculty, lab staff and the student folks whom I met. Exposure, the experience is more like the adventure roller coaster in Gargi. All it needs is a hostel to add stars to it.
Since this college is not only in top 10 science colleges in India but also has one of the best laboratory and collaborative lab staff and professors. As I reached there the management of the system, seniors handling admission duties all fascinated me. Laboratories and sports ground were a sight to behold.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
The fee is quite reasonable with my fees including labs being only 10700 per year. Varies on course to course basis. Funds are also provided to society members for various activities. Competitions do give an opportunity to earn extras, other concessions to be availed can be sent via applications.
Placement here is a little less for science graduates but given the course its ok. For commerce, placements are pretty good in number. Placement cell which has both teachers and students union help students out with companies and their requirements. Center campus of the university to have the option of placements.
I filled the basic form of Delhi University and checked regular merits and luckily in very first cut off found my percentage according to the cut off of many colleges, Gargi being my first choice amongst all other colleges I qualified for. I also got along with my documents verification that included my 10,12 certificate along with other ID documents.
No hostel, but yes a canteen which definitely good. Accommodation is definitely the only lacuna of Gargi college which can be thought about in detail as students outstation find it difficult to afford reasonable rentals in such a high-class locality. Food issues can be resolved via hostel food.
Alumni network and alumni meets are all organized and yes to a certain extent they are a good help. I remember our seniors visiting us and sharing notes to their personal experiences even career counseling.
They were very cooperative and even till date has helped me. During PPTs and exs they would spare extra time for students not only to solve their queries but also to give extra details even during after hours. Their contribution towards extracurriculars cant is undermined.
My college was a girls college so not to mention skewed ratio towards females. Diversity ranging from states to different cultures and languages, even different socioeconomic status in a single room is no big surprise in Gargi. Sports, debates is one of the strength Gargi girls boast about.
Exams are held on a semester basis with the internals of 25 marks and practical exams of 50 marks. Per year 2 semesters and result semester wise and cumulative. Exams are quite refreshing for a person attending regular classes, labs are bit elaborate, vivas etc
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
It was a beginning part of experimental FYUP but later changed to its normal form. Overall it was good. We used to have 5 hours of lab, zero period and classes in LTs. Student PPts and board presentations formed part of our internals which is still an ace giving confidence and skills.
