I am a student of second year B. Sc (H) in the comp. Sc. In Asutosh college. The atmosphere of my college is student-friendly. I haven't been faced any kind of ragging by senior students instead I had them whenever I needed them. The faculties are so helpful. They interact with their students so easily so that the bonding between students and teachers becomes friendly. Coming to the entrance exam. I haven't given any entrance to get into my college. All I had was a result of my higher secondary examination and on the basis of that result, I was enlisted in the first merit list published by the college. The college publishes more than one merit list after a certain no. of days. I was enlisted in the first merit list. The cutoffs are really high because Ashutosh college is ranked one college under Calcutta University. Therefore there's tough competition for every stream. You have to score at least 80% to get your name on that merit list at first attempt. There is plenty of space on the college premises and a lot of buildings where classes are attempted.

There are three libraries in total, one in the main building and one in another building known as ACTC building. So yes, I can assure you that you won't regret making the decision to take your three-year bachelor course at Asutosh College.

Asutosh College is one of the renowned colleges in Kolkata, West Bengal. It's famous because of its student's active political actions. Taking admission is a bit tuff in the college especially in the department I studied that is Sociology as it has high cut off range. The year when I got admission in Asutosh College, the range of cut off was 85%. Also, it is difficult as there is a long procedure to complete the admission process. It took me 2days to complete as there was a huge line for admission and the student need to let go from one building to another.
