ACADEMICS & FACULTY: Not very happy with the academic syllabus. It's like they're just trying to fill in the four year course with random useless topics.I'm sure I can cover the useful parts within an year outside. Just hanging on for the degree.

FEES AND SCHOLARSHIP: Scholarship is not availed by more than 3% of students and generally seems impractical. However, bank loans are available from the Union Bank of India branch p...
