Remarks :

This university is fabulous. The faculty is also good. They are very helpful. My experience is in this university is very good. This university is one of the best universities in India. If anybody completes their graduation from here, then definitely they have a bright future. As we talk about others facility, then in that also this university is very very good. Allahabad University has computer labs science lab and library. Allahabad University is also called Oxford of the east and this is because of the facilities and faculties provided by this university. I hope I have given much information about Allahabad University and students would have now no confusions about the faculties and facilities. And admission process is very simple. Everyone can fill the form from their phone only. It is available on the main site of Allahabad University. Due to the pandemic, we are attending online classes and un that also our teachers are giving their best to help us out and I feel lucky.

Remarks :

The good thing about an MBA from MONIRBA, University of Allahabad is that this course/degree is offered by a renowned central university in the country. The return on investment is good as a course fee of around 70k lands you in a decent entry-level managerial position in some renowned corporates like ICICI bank, ICICI prudential, Hero Moto Corp, etc. Upon entering the curriculum I realized that the faculty here is decent and some of the professors are actually great. One gets to learn a lot from them. What I personally disliked is the infrastructure. The admission process comprises of three stages: CBT(Computer Based Test) consisting of a total of 300 questions. GD and PI I preferred this college because : ~It's a recognized course from a central university ~The ROI is good ~The faculty and the college life are decent. ~Proximity to my home town. I got to know some insights of the college prior to the application process from some of my current seniors in the college.

Remarks :

The admission process was very good and conducted the whole process at a time. The teachers were very cooperative with us. The main reason to select or prefer this college was that I wanted a college in Prayagaraj that provide me with good knowledge and is respected. The website of the Institute of Professional Studies is ips.allduniv.ac.in which provided the time and date on which admission had commenced.

Remarks :

Allahabad university is situated in Allahabad and it's also known as factory of IAS. I'm from jaunpur shifted to Allahabad to take admission and study there to achieve good knowledge. The professor's of this university are very friendly and the university has all the facility like library, sport grounds, music, art, dance and many other things are available here. So I choose this collegeI obtained 170 marks in entrance test after few days cut of listed on it's website was 167 so I decided to go Pravesh Bhavan where we can take admission by verifying documents. 4th of July 2019 I submit my all forms and fee. Here is only one bad thing that is student politics.

Admission :

Allahabad University conducts university level entrance examination every year. Candidates get admission in various UG and PG courses through qualifying the entrance test. Admission is offered in the field of Arts, Commerce, Law, etc. Application form can be filled through online mode only.

Remarks :

Three hostels are there, providing accommodation to more than 5000 students. Apart from this anyone seeking food and lodging outside the campus then nothing to worry about. The food at the hostels isn't so bad and only we have to pay INR 2000 for this. The funds available to a central University is high so the quality of the buildings and infrastructure is really of a high standard.

Admission :

First I appeared in JNU-CEEB entrance exam. After entrance I got selected to fill in the counselling form. Then I filled counseling form in which I had to make a decision to choose the universities and make a list of preference out of 33 Universities. My preference were based on following 1. Best University 2. Minimum distance from my hometown 3. Minimum fees So, I filled in the counseling form with 10 Universities according to my preference in which University of Allahabad was at 4th preference. In counseling I got selected for University of Allahabad. Then I took admission in this University.

Remarks :

However, almost all people of our department are helpful, but management of our University is quite lazy, e.g. it takes about 1 to 2 months for dubursing of stipends.

Admission :

I opted for this course because I want to be a bank PO and University of Allahabad was ranked under top 100 universities of India so that's why I chose this institution.University take entrance exams(offline and online mode) every year in the month of may to get freshers on the cut off basis. We have to enroll ourselves for the entrance exam by filling up a form of 500 rupees(registration fees) available at the website.

Remarks :

Overall experience was good but due to non compulsory attendance of the students, students used to bunk classes and when students are less then even lecturers lost interest in the classes.

I applied for bhu but because of my rank, I was not able to get admission there. The Allahabad University conducts an entrance exam and when cleared, you get admission to this university. They take an entrance test after that they conduct counseling if you pass then you can take admission to that university.
