GOOD COLLEGE REVIEW WITH BEST INFRASTRUCTURE
The infrastructure of our college is really good but because there was "no class rooms left" in AIGS building we are made to sit in an underconstruction building which belongs to the aeronotical department since day one. It's being like more than 8months but still we got no class room in the aigs building. The logic authorities give is that since we are pg students and less in number ug students deserves the class more. And still there is no reduction from our fee for infrastructure.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
The fee structure is little expensive for students out of Karnataka and foreign students. Karnataka state students can apply through university according to their merit and there will be reduction in fees for out of state students like me the fee can be paid in four times as in each semester. For 1st semester I had to pay around 60 thousand and in 2nd semester 25thousand in 3rd semester it will be 50thousand and in 4th semester it will be again 25 thousand. I'm not sure if this is exactly how much the fee is but is somewhere around 1.6lakh for the whole course
I'm in my first year right now and placement is for 2nd years only I don't have much ideas about it but I have heard Acharya have good placement cell but I have also heard even though they give us jobs it doesn't pay well
First of all I registered myself for the entrence exam one month prior to the admission then gave my entrence examination. I got a call back from the office saying my admission was confirmed and then all I had to do was bring all my certificates and fill up some forms and also pay the fees
The infrastructure and facilities of hostel is really good we can have single rooms twin sharing and upto 4 sharing in the hostel the staffs Clean the rooms daily. There's attached bathrooms and also heater facility. There is a lift and also laundry and mess facility too but for heaven sake the food is the worst served. U have to sign the register every time you go out and the in time is 8:30 in weekends can be extended to 9.and the real problem is when u have to go out for a day or two u have to print out hell lot of forms and run behind your proctor to get it all signed and also your parents will have to confirm it.
They are very sweet and extremely helpful. When ever you have a problem regarding anything they are always there. You can actually count on them, academic or emotional support they were always there for us
The faculty is really good. They are extremely talented and hard working. Also they are very friendly and understanding towards the students. They receives our calls and replies to our texts at any hour and are always ready to help.
Acharya is the best when it comes to extracurricular activities and sports every year there are like a lot of programs happening inside the campus I'm not very sure about labs as I'm a literature student and yeah there's no language lab
For every semester we have 2 internal tests 1each in every month and at the end of the semester board exams. The question paper is set in three sections. 1st section consists of six short answer questions out of which we have to attend any three. This section carries 3*5=15marks 2nd section consists of three questions out of which we have to answer two questions. This section carries 2*10=20marks 3rd section consists of two questions out which one is to be answered. This section carries 1*15=15marks All together we have four Semester exams and the same structure goes with every exams.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
There was a sudden rearrangement in our syllabus as this year as MA English course was made part of BCU(Bangalore Central University) because of which we had to suffer a lot. We were first given a syllabus and then changed it in between which created problem for us but hopefully from next time onwards this problem won't occur for our juniors. because of the re arranged syllabus, the first semester syllabus is huge which made it very difficult for us to cover the portions but the second, third and fourth semester doesn't seem that huge or hectic. We have to finish like 25 assignments for each semesters which is really tiring. All together the course is good but the sudden change in syllabus and university made it difficult for us
I'm in my first year right now and I don't have much ideas about internships. I think in my course there is no internship program. But I have heard other departments have good internship programs for their students
There are like a lot of events and festivals taking place in Acharya. Acharya habba is the main and most important amongst all. As part of the habba there are like plenty of events taking place inside the campus. dj night, ethnic day, Acharya premiere league, fashion show, etc are just few among them
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
I didn't get any kind of scholarship or loan from the college as I didn't apply for one. But I have friends who has got it. Acharya provides many such kind of scholarships and loans for underprivileged students
