Remarks :

I chose to study in pondi because of the environment of the place. Another reason being I did not find any other suitable college to study this course. After doing some research, this college was still open for admissions and so I applied here. The national ranking of this college is 63 according to NIRF, it is UGC approved as well.The admission process is based totally based on merit, group interview and followed by a personal interview. So i feel lucky to get a seat in this prestigious college, and also for the application fee, I paid rs 1000.
