    Merit list which comes out announcing the students they will take for admission in our college, depends on the marks that a student scores in 12th examination and a few compulsory subjects are considered along with it.

    Well, coming to this - internships are available for students for those who are in the science field and students scoring atleast 90% get easily placed and stipend is around 8k to 10k. But there isn't any placements for arts students as such.
