Shreyya's review on Jesus & Mary College, [JMC] New Delhi | Written on: 17 Jun 2016


The Political Science curriculum is centralised in the University of Delhi and is also very theoretical. The syllabus is divided into 6 semesters over 3 years and each semester consists of 4-5 papers graded on the basis of end-term exams, internal tests and assignments. The faculty for Political Science at JMC is one of the oldest in the university and professors are punctual at taking lectures and tutorials every day. The college is strict about attendance although it is compensated for students participating in extra curricular activities. There are students from all walks of life with different interests and aspirations making it equally easy and difficult to fit in. 


As the University falls under the ambit of UGC, it is quite affordable. Despite this, we have facilities for aid and scholarship along with academic awards. Students can avail the same based on merit and financial status. 


The placement cell is quite active but focuses more on students from commerce background excluding a large section pursuing humanities. Companies partner with the cell regularly and advertise by putting up posters on notice boards, which is a major source of information regarding internships. The alumni network is not all that active, however there have been various attemts to reconstruct it. 


Amidst the embassies, the fact that JMC is located in the best part of New Delhi is incomprable. It is not "on campus" which has its own pros and cons. The building and infrastrucure which is under renovation is excellent. The college does not have hostel facilities but there are plenty of PGs and flats right across Satya Niketan which is a 5 minute walk from college. 



There are numerous clubs and societies varying from Mudra(the western dance society), Kahkasha(hindi street play) to Mercatus(the marketing club). All societies are relatively active and some of them do phenomenally well during inter-college tournaments. Montage, the annual cultural festival is apparently one of the most popular festivals in Delhi University and happens every year in the month of March. JMC has almost all sports teams and has the best all-girls football team, winning the vice-chancellors trophy almost every year.
