A SCIENCE STUDENTS LIFE IN GARGI
The infrastructure is poor and even though washrooms were newly built, maintenance of the same were not undertaken. Overall the workers over there are very helpful and that forms a very good impression about the college
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
The fee structure is feasible. Generally the price of any course would be less than Rs. 15,000/- per annum. And since it's a 3 year course it is feasible to afford that. There are some courses which cost around 20,000/- per annum but they offer better infrastructure such as air conditioned labs.
Yes, our college provides placements but there are no companies that come offering a role in science and the same is true for internships. Our college does not offer internships. There are companies that offer general job roles and are willing to take science students.
List of college specific course specific cut off was out on the college website, post which we visited the college on the day of taking admission. We were asked to wait and arrange our documents and submit the same which were supposed to be signed by the principal. Any candidate will have to wait since you cannot predict as to when your form will come. For me it took 6 hours of waiting because they had lost my admission slip in the office. You have to submit the fees post your admission but you need to give some amount for registration so that your seat is fixed.
Senior students in the college are Very helpful but the alumni network is poorly managed. Placement notices for alumni is updated and we get a notice regularly but otherwise we don't receive email updates on events that we have an invite for.
Gargi College has a good science faculty. It has a well funded botany department and the professor's from botany department are highly knowledgeable in their domain. The faculty motivates you to study further and out of the course given to us and is highly encouraging and supportive when it comes to pursuing a field in science.
We had the provision of very good extracurricular activities. This college offers to you the option of joining any society and there are a lot of societies meant for this- from dancing to dramatics to sports. Sports infrastructure in our college is good but the rooms allocated to other societies are not good. Labs in our college are not well maintained. Botany and zoology labs are nice but chemistry labs are unbearable with half of the devices not working properly
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
We had semester system and we had exams at the end of each semester but there were quizzes, class tests and assignments meant solely for internal marking. Life sciences consists of botany, zoology and chemistry and in each semester we had specific topics to study under each of these domain. In addition to this we also had a basic qualifying subject like English or EVS in each semester but their marks were added in our CGPA. We don't get the option of an additional elective that other honours course students are offered. The lab work gave us a practical understanding of what we were learning in class especially in botany and practicals had a separate exam in the end.
Our national social service(NSS) team along with the media relations team organises diwali mail. Freshers would be the first event that first years will encounter. We have our own fest and departmental fests take place in the months oct-feb. Convocation and farewell are also two important events on the calender
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
I did not opt for any scholarship or loan facility that our college offers but there is a bank inside the college venue, in case there is a facility like that i think they would be able to guide better
