    Too much pressure of studies which may lead you to emotional breakdowns and make you feel busy everytime. But, after perusing a degree from here you'll be most satisfied as you will have a brand tag.

    Remarks -

    Most of the Student became activist which affect their career and family in near future. Since the institute is providing opportunity to students to work freely but due to different ideologies, students misuse it and which not only affect their life but also affect institute image.
