Hi Shrayana!

The admission  procedure for BA(Bengali) in Jadavpur University, Calcutta is as follows :

Under Graduate Courses

Admission process for Under Graduate Courses is initiated when the results for +2 Board examination is declared.

Admission to Jadavpur University, though extremely competitive, is through a completely transparent and student-friendly process, from application to publication of admission test results; details are available to anyone who inquires. The process is reviewed annually and improvements implemented (e.g. making applications to all courses at the Faculty of Arts online) on a regular basis. Students from backward and disadvantaged sections of society, especially those from remote rural areas, are encouraged to apply and there are many schemes and programmes for such students.

All new students are made aware of the university's origins (as the patriotic and anti-imperial National Council of Education, Bengal, in the early 20th century), its heritage, mission and vision. They are briefed about facilities available for them (e.g. library and medical facilities, counselling services, special services for differently-abled students); the university's zero-tolerance policy with regard to ragging and sexual harassment, among others. All students are expected to abide by the values that Jadavpur University stands for, including devotion to the truth, the practice of virtue, selflessness and duty to others, and to take these as the guiding principles of their lives.

Students are encouraged to take an active part in curriculum development, not only through their formal feedback on teachers, course content and infrastructural facilities, but also through debate and discussion at the department-specific student-teacher committees; student representatives at various statutory bodies are provided a platform to make the student community's views known and to contribute to planning for the future.

Online submission of application(s) for admission to B.A (Hons.) & B.Sc (Hons.) courses for the session 2016-17 will start on and from 23/5/2016.
