Ques. Which is a better option for studying statistics, St. Xavier's College, Kolkata or Presidency University, Kolkata?

● Top Answer By Abanti on 22 Feb 21

Ans. Both colleges are great options for studying statistics.  Presidency University has a glorious history and the department of Statistics is one of the best departments. The university has great alumni which makes it score higher in terms of ‘Heritage’. One of the most famous names among them is P.C. Mahalanobis. There are dedicated faculty members like Prof. BR and Prof. PD, who is an alumnus himself.  One of my friends has Statistics as his electives but he never got the chance to be taught by these reputed faculty members. Students are highly dedicated and excels in their respective university exams. Graduates from this college pursued post-graduate studies from reputed universities like ISI, CMI, IMSc, etc. If you have Honours in Statistics with Mathematics and Economics, then it will be a great combination. In terms of environment, you will get a sense of freedom at Presidency and a change to form a opinion on various aspects of life. However, St. Xavier’s College is also good but it is very strict and you will get a feel of school there. It is known for its discipline while Presidency University is know for its creativity.Read more

      Admission :

      The university entertains applications for two courses. I had applied for History and Political Science. Although I topped the entrance exam for History, ultimately I opted for Political Science as it is one of the best departments in the university. To be honest, the university is more suitable for those students who want to stick to academics only.

      Remarks :

      Apart from the lack of placement facilities, Presidency University is one of the best choices for students who want to pursue higher education in terms of quality and feasibility.

      Admission :

      There is an exam called PUBDET every year in July. That is basically the admission process for undergraduate students. And for post graduate students similar exam PUMDET is conducted by the West Bengal Joint entrance examination board. Life sciences is basically one of the pioneers of the future sciences. Where others busy in studying only one field like botany or zoology or physiology, we get to study everything related to biology so definitely one should go for this stream

      Remarks :

      The University is the 200 years legacy of most of the successful person in West Bengal living or dead. It also produced 2 Nobel laureate from India. Overall this institute provides everything. I think they should focus on the scholarships and the placement cells to give students an access to companies. It's really disappointing to see students with lower merit gets the job from outside and our students opting for lower pay-scale jobs.

Even we fight for any propaganda of our government doing. The only problem we r facing is the communication with our Vice Chancellor. She is very stiff and often deny our demands.
