      I heard about this college from my seniors. Higher education will allow me to pursue higher careers that i choose to do. Even with a bachelor's degree you are most likely better off hiring than someone who has had less education.

      Because it has archaeology stream, and it is near to my home, so I always preferred this to get the admission, other colleges were not near to my house or was in other states, beside these things this college is much cheaper than others, it gets good score by NAAC team.

      It is under top college category and campus is big. Education is best, higher study etc others recommend things are there. Admission process is for b. tech under wbjee board and this is start after (1week) declared wbjee result.

      Well guidance by the professor regular class disciplined and home environment one of the best commerce college in Kolkata.I think these are enough for being the dream college for the aspirant. More over the teachers give one to one attention and solve the doubts promptly. As it is a government college the semester fee is less providing access to the avg families to study there.

      Since your current course B.Sc includes Statistics as one subject, you would be able to take admission for M.Sc. in Statistics at CU. You will have to give the University entrance exam as the admissions are based on Entrance exam.merit marks.
