Reviews About Government Degree College, [GDC] Baramulla

Bachelor of Business Administration [BBA], batch of 2019

Class time for BBA is 10:00 am, after finishing two classes each for 40 minutes we have a break for 40 minutes, during which we eat our lunch and the students. In a weak, we have given the assignment to make by concerned teachers and each student at least have to do a presentation once in a weak. Teachers are well skilled,qualified and good mannered. For each subject every teacher teaches us beautifully just like they are our brothers,or friends. This very college is functional from the 19th century so you could guess how much time it has been worked and still going on. I feel very good there and the sight, location of this college is very beautiful.
