The daily routine is from 8.30 am-4.00pm with clinical schedule between 10.30am-1.00pm The teachers are too good and provide with the best quality subject knowledge. Overall experience is very good with ample opportunities to excel in various extra-curricular activities.


You can find almost everything in this campus. You name it and we have it (expect for golf though). Cricket, Football, Basketball, Hockey, Athletics, Badminton, Squash, Tennis, and several indoor games. Music , Dance, Drama and even Film-making(MEDCINE club) is college's asset.
