ABOUT MY COLLEGE
For undergraduation one can definitely choose Kilpauk Medical college. It has a decent academic, cultural and sports activities with necessary exposure. It is located in the heart of the city and is a small campus due to which it lacks services in a few departments which was compensated by institutes within the city.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
As it is a government medical college, the fee structure is feasible. Overall college fees for 4years should come around ?40000, which is roughly around ?10000/year. Exam fees should also be paid a month before exams which should be around ?6000-8000 per year depending on the number of papers in that year.

I got admitted based on my 12th marks. Now it is based on NEET UG exam. Based on the marks obtained from the entrance exam(NEET), call letter was given for counselling on a particular date. I attended my counselling, got a seat in my college
I had stayed in hostel for the whole 5 and half years and it was pretty good. We hardly had Water or Electricity problems in our hostels. Our hostel has a gym. Our hostel mess was decent and had adequate rooms for the amount of people stayed there.
Seniors were helpful. In a professional course like medicine, we tend to depend on each other. Our alumnis were helpful and are always on the lookout for ways of improving our college. Our college has a alumni association which takes care of these things.
Faculties guide us throughout the year. Intrested people can do thesis, ICMR projects, Paper presentation, Case presentation etc., Faculties play an important role in these academic activities done by students.
My college had various extracurricular activities both academic and sports. We participate in various tournaments throughout the year in various medical colleges and conduct an intra and inter College sports events once a year.

People interested in medicine can choose for sure. My course has a total of 19 subjects throughout 4 and a half years and 1 yr of compulsory rotatory resident internship (CRRI). Exams were based on both theoretical knowledge and clinical skills, necessary for anyone joining medicine. Exams were fine.
My college has various academic and cultural events both intercollege and intracollege. Starting from Hostel day function, Ecofest for environmental day, Vaanavil (intracollege cultural), Medrenaline(intercollege quiz) and Pradharshini(intracollege culturals)
