Remarks :

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.

Admission :

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.

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.

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

● Top Answer By Karan Verma 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
