Student Reviews

Bachelor of Commerce [B.Com] (Accountancy), batch of 2021

Bcom timings for Scottish Church College is from 6:30 AM to 11:00 PM. (Almost same as Study. Xavier's College, Kolkata.) Sadly, there are not much of a permanent faculty member. The HOD and 3 teachers to say they're permanent. Rest, guest lecturers, but that shouldn't bother as the quality of the teachers are really good. The college is really good but remembers, if you want to apply for Bcom, be sure to be cut off from the rest of the college.


There is a Student Union, which hosts Caledonia, the biggest college fest in the north Calcutta area.

Master of Science [M.Sc] (Botany), batch of 2019
