PRESIDENCY UNIVERSITY- 200 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE

Remarks -
7.8 /10

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.

My Beloved University

Remarks -
8 /10

I love my college. Our University is near about perfect. Faculty is good, there is so much space and positive environment that we can think of. We as students do and fulfill our duties. 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.
