  • The University classes timings vary with each department where ours last 55 minute each, with a 5 min break after each class. The  Bachelor's programme is now even better with a three year semester system now introduced . This year marks system has been replaced with grading system and with the introduction of  Choice Based Credit System (CBCS), it's a boost up for gaining knowledge instead of digits. Each year consists of two semesters with mid sem and end sem. There not so much of projects on undergraduate level, but they do take experiental work really seriously.Lab works are expected to be completed each semester with each practical is completed with a viva voce.
  • One of the perks of studying in this University is it's Alumini association .The Alumini from throughout the globe that motivates the present students . Association such as  Sir Syed Excellence in Science Award (SSESA) ,AMU provides amazing guidance and financial support to the undergraduates to apply and broaden their horizons to study abroad. 
  • Now,Speaking about teaching.I think the quality and method of teaching varies with the quality and method of the indvidual 'teacher'. My department has some really young as well as experienced teachers and also some greatest teacher I have ever seen. But each one of them try their best to stay interactive and urge us to ask and speak up in class.  The syllabus revised now for semester system is bit less sufficient i.e many important topics have been omitted and it's lacking a bit . 
  •  We can spend our time in the seminar of the department all day long and teachers are always present around to answer if any query arises. There are interactive sessions on trending topics every once in a while. It's amazing to learn physics and do various courses that are offered by the guest professors.
