Bachelor of Arts [BA] (Sociology) | Batch of 2015
Written on 29 Apr 2015
my name is dikshita baruah and am a student of jesus and mary college,delhi,currently persuing my last year of college in the sociology department.Three years in my college i guess its more than enough to give a review of about my college especially of my department.As this college is affiliated to the delhi university i guess this explains the reason for the high cut offs required to get an admission into it but the best part about jmc is one can surely benefit from the cut offs set aside by other colleges by applying to my college as at the time of admission the best of four is taken into consideration and along with it if in the subject one wishes to take up a course then in that particular subject an aggregate percentage of marks is added thus increasing ones overall percentage and one can be sure if one is aspiring for a degree under delhi university post 3 years in the ugc level,he is sure to get it under jmc.
once you r in the campus and college starts the college sure is going to transform your overall personality post 3 years hence and this is possible with the wide range of exposure offered to you in the campus life in classrooms where you have the best teachers who are highly talented themselves and have such dynamic personalities about the world around them,who amke sure that they transmute their knowledge and personality within you and transform you into an individual capable to facing this competitive world fearlessly.moreover the college gives one immense opportunity to grow by organizing diffrent talks with emminent personalities,by providing exposure for placement to all by equally giving each girl to sit and attend pre placement talks and then choose her own forte wherin the desired candidate can sit for their own company placement.we have companies like zomato.the oberois,torque,dell etc coming to our collge and every year quite a hansome number of girls get a chance to live their dreams post college when the real life begins.
as far as the classroom ambience is concerned jmc is gifted with the best and most friendliest teachers any college i doubt can have.they push each girl to their best by acting as a friend helping them through giving indepth knowledge relevant to the current times so that each and evry girl relates the bookish knowledge to their evryday life and this adds to the fun quotient at jmc.there are classroom presentations,research trips,class tests,home assignments each planned well in advanced so that the students are comfortabllu prepared for it,and to add up off campus through latest technological help we have chat groups with our teachers wherin we cn interact with them evn at odd hours of night during exams,such are the kinds of teachers available at jmc :)
the methodology of teaching involves reviewing past years question papers at the end of evry topic,referring of current topics and also there are tutorials wherein girls are divided into groups of 8/9 each and every group meets each teacher every week to discuss their doubts.
jmc doesnt have an exchange offer as such but yes we do have foreign guests at times who give us talks and also we have foreign university like the kingston college,london who visit the campus to enrich the students as to how to apply there post undergraduations by providing them knowledge about admissions,scholarship ets.the languages spoken in the campus are english,hindi but the languages that are taught in the campus also includes french spanish etc in which the students can pass their graduation
the college being a govrnment college the fee is very adequate which is annually 11000 roughly
Students in need of financial assistance may apply on the prescribed form available at the Accounts Office.
Until the fee concession is sanctioned all fees must be paid by the student. A refund of payments made at the beginning of the year may be subsequently claimed if the concession is sanctioned.

Moreover bank loans are also available for students who require financial aids.
i have been under internships of limeroad.national institute for public and child care and develpoment center,global youth india(jmc chapter) etc and through campus pacemebts i have registered myself as well.
companies that come for pacement include dell the oberois torque sovnations booking diva zomato etc each providing handsome package offers to the students wherein in an average atlest 70% who apply get placed with salary package of upto 12 lakhs p.a as given by zomato
the alumni of my college includes priyanka gandhi,ambika anand,neha dhupia,sheila dixit etc thus adding up to the powerful image of jmc.the alumni network is highly strong and to add on there are alumni meets every year.
the college has been approved of funds by naac and hence it is under rennovation as of now but nonetheless the campus has well equipped labs,a huge well stored library,a wifi enabled campus,huge playgrounds,the best caffeteria where one cant miss out on the most amazing chaats,rajma chawal etc.
the college doesnt have however hostel so students have to find their own accomodation and have to look after their transportation.however being located in central delhi easy bus,metro and auto communication servies can be achieved by the students.
as i said as the college doesnt have its own hostel hence the students rely on the neighbourhood pgs and rented houses which can be a bit budget taking but here again cheaper options are readily available.
the food in the college canteen is really aweome and this can be a hub for chaat lovers,and if one is still not satisfied there is jus in 5 mins distance a place called satyaniketan which is a hub for mouthwatering cafes at a very reasonable rates offering you multiple cuisines,one cant get enough exploring them even in three years of college life as at the end of three years you would still end up not exploring quite many cafes and you may be disheartened at this.
the college offers one a variety of options to excel in extra curricular activities by providing them to be the part of various societies be it dance both indian and western music dramatics both hindi and english debating society,mun society and not to forget sports which includes swimming,cricket,football,basketball tc.if you are wonering jmc being a girls college still has cricket and football then yes i m not joking,all girls college too can be intresting afterall why should boys have all the fun,right?
with all the societies mentioned above i dont think there is now a doubt that our alumni includes priyanka gandhi or a neha dhupia..:)
jmc has girls of all backgrounds,class,race and even foreign students.with such diversity there can be no question of any discrimination rather a very positive healthy and friendly atmosphere is what surrounds the college.when we have our annual fests one can see all the beautiful girls hanging around posing eating making merry etc(undoubtedly it is considered to be the best and most sought after fest of delhi university thus;))
the campus is narcotics and alcohol free.0 tolerance is provided if any one is found violating the campus rules although the collge is the most fun campus to be around otherwise.
