    overall the college is good but it needs to work on the management as they are not much disciplined. Staff is not very updated and comprises of youngsters.


    Entrance Exam

    And for admission into this college I give them BU exam first of the college is spread across a large area and it is one of the highlights of the college and the infra is also good.


    Fees

    I Paid around 70 to 80000 per annum. students who get good marks in the universities entrance exam have to pay less as compared to other students who get in through the management quota. Also sports scholarship is provided to students.


    Placements

    one of the problems with the university is that the placement is average and only a small number of companies come for placements. The percentage of placement is around 70-80%. But I am not very much satisfied with placement as I did not get placed and I would read it around for 6 out of 10. I had to get job on my own.


    Hostel and Facilities

    college has a huge hostel which comprises of more than 500 students. The rooms of the hostel are spacious as well as is equipped with all the basic facilities. The rooms are provided on sharing basis and mostly comprises of two students for room. Other than that the facilities of the college are ok with comprises of Wi-Fi. Food of the college is ok but not as good as 14. The college charges around 40000 per year for the hostels stop


    Alumni

    never got in touch with new the alumni therefore I do not have much knowledge on the password but my seniors have told me that the college is good and placements are also decent. The seniors were helpful


    Faculty

    Faculty of the college is not great mainly assistant professors only handle students and professors are absent. The syllabus is outdated and management makes no effort to update them whatsoever. Teaching in regional language is also a major drawback and is not good students who belong from other parts of the country. Some of the faculty is qualified but rest are only interested in teaching from textbox. Also the library is outdated and the books Where are not updated frequently.


    Campus Life

    the college was ok there were few extra curricular activities such as sports and debates. Also the college organises various sports wants like cricket Champions League basketball competitions an indoor games. Organises workshops regularly. It also organises a culture festival.


    Academics

    Labs are almost daily which makes the schedule hectic lab assistance is not much provided. The equipments in the lab or not in and around it. Examination procedure is picked on the syllabus is no which makes it ok to stop every student can easily pass with that type of subject and syllabus


    Internships

    During my time there wasn't any internships by the college. college to conduct workshops and workshops conducted by top companies but the management does not inform us which makes it a bit difficult for us. I did not do any internship.


    Loans and Scholarships

    Loans I did not had any of the loan therefore not therefore I'm not very sure about the loan if loan is provided by the college or not when it comes to scholarship yes I did get scholarship as I scored 85% in my class 12th to stop scholarship was provided to students who have scored more than 80%. Also the management increases poor Students by giving loans in agreement with Punjab National Bank. Most of these loans are very low on interest

    Entrance Exam

    For getting admitted i was selected based on my TANCET marks for my mca program. The entrace test is for admission into my courese anmd some other courses. It is not an easy entrance and i would advise students to study hard as it is good opportunity for you get into some top government colleges which do not charge high fee and the quality of education is premium also the trademark of a government college is something else only.


    Fees

    Being a government college is fee is very low as low as Rs 15k per annum which i have paid. When you compare it wil other private and even with some givt college you will see that you are saving a lot of money here.
