Good : Admission process is quite easy consisting of 1 exam PUMDET, followed by declaration of results on the website, 1 day verification of documents happen. Nice professors, good lab facility, class conditions very good, all equipped with AC and projector, syllabus made in accordance with NET syllabus, course helps to learn new techniques that will be useful in upcoming years(for PhD)Bad : Presidency keeps a quota for old B. Sc students and also takes new students through examination, this creates a divide as ex-students consider themselves to be superior, that creates tension amongst students and sometimes dirty politics as well.
Yes there's a written examination before admission. It's an MCQ exam named PUMDET. Basic B. Sc syllabus is enough to prepare for this exam, only the concepts have to be clear.
As I wanted to do petroleum engineering, so luckily this college offere btech in petroleum engineering.
so I was not interested in doing any of the other courses.so I choose this college and also it offers good placement opportunities.
No, I didn't face any type of these becoz I got admitted through kcet and also I didn't face any interview or other stuff if we are in any competitive exam and if it's good rank we will get selected.
I got admission to this University via the Entrance examination which opts for MCQs. This institution is 203 years old and South Asia's oldest institute with a notable alumnus who has been Presidents, Vice - Presidents, Economist, Prime Ministers, Researchers, Noble Laureates, etc.
Best University in India with highly updated facilities and a rich library and has the best curriculum which encourages research work.
Presidency University is highly reputed for the Economics Department for their notable alumnis including two nobel laureates in the field of Economics. As an economics aspirant, Presidency University is the best university to purse Economics in. Presidency University, Department of Economics hold a Summer School in Economics where notable alumnis and Professors from various reputed universities abroad come together for a conference. The department also holds a winter conference every year. Oikos, the economic society also brings in notable professors from other reputed universities for lectures addressing recent issues, organises debates on interesting agendas, interdepartmental quiz competitions and essay competitions.
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.

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

Ans.Both colleges are great options for studying statistics.

However, St. Xavier’s College is also good but it is very strict and you will get a feel of school there.
