INFRASTRUCTURE & TRANSPORTATION
10/10

1) Hostels in MCC are known as the halls. There are three girls' halls and three boys' halls. I am not in the college hostel. As far as I know the fees per year comes around INR 30,000. For a few of the halls the rooms are little small as it has been there for more than 80 years. 2) PGs outside the college are fine. Most of them don't provide good food. The one where I am staying is decent enough. 3) Food in college canteen is good and cheap. Things like lemon rice are available for INR 20. 4) The quality of infrastructure is good. The college is 184 years and it still has the essence of what the Scottish missionaries left. The microbiology lab needs an update. WiFi facility is okay. More fans should be there in the classroom. More ramps can be constructed for the differently-abled.


ACADEMICS & FACULTY
10/10

1) MCC has two shifts- aided (morning) and SFS (evening). My classes happen in the evening from 1:45 pm-6:15 pm. We have research and fieldwork in every semester. Each semester has three internals. Two are written tests and the third one is activity-based (best of three). At the end of the semester we have the end semester exams. Assignments are given for the third internal. 2) Quality and method of teaching isn't great. The way the concepts are explained isn't up to the mark. Sometimes we even get portions which aren't even taught by the professors. Only 1-2 in the department know how to teach. 3) MCC is an amazing college. The place is all about holistic development and not just about academics. That is true education. But the administration here is the worst of all.


FEES AND SCHOLARSHIP
10/10

1) MCC fees for the 1st Semester is INR 45,000 and for the 2nd Semester it is INR 25,000 2) There are a few scholarship options. Not sure of their names 3) Yes, loans are needed. Not sure about the bank and the ease of access
