University performance and status review

Remarks -
7.2 /10

Our university is good in general, but as a central university, I think it is not up to the mark. 1st of all, it needs to enrich its library's content. Again as a science student I will say it needs to focus more in expermental work, which is lacking, may be due to lack of financial support.
