    Presidency University Impressions

    Remarks -

    The rules are a little to strict. They need to understand that the college is way too far from the city and traveling time is a little too much so sometimes we do get late to reach college. They close the main gates at 9.30 and don't open it until it's 12 that leads to attendance shortage of many students making it a very big issue

    Best Emerging University in India

    Remarks -

    The positives are more compare to the negatives. All the positives I have told in the above section. To remember some negatives are the fee payment issues and some rogue fights from local people. Other than that not much to mention.

    A legacy rusted along the sands of time.

    Remarks -

    Positive: There are some teachers who are true to the legacy of the University and understand the liberal and helpful mindset that this University has always tried to promote and implement. Negative:The current system is nowhere near to that it used to be in it's Golden Ages, with attendance criterion and inconsiderate behaviour by most authority causing havoc on the life of otherwise diligent students
