B.A. (Honours) English, batch of 2016 6/10
ACADEMICS & FACULTY: JMC is famous for its academic rigor- students often complain that it's just like school. Class timings are 8.30-4. The number of classes depend on your semester- the workload increases quite a bit from third semester on wards. Delhi University style of functioning is not great, but the teachers try their best to compensate. The English department faculty is quite good in that the teachers are well qualified and serious about their job. The teaching method is classroom only, which is ineffective sometimes.

English (Honours), batch of 2016 7/10
ACADEMICS & FACULTY: JMC takes academics pretty seriously. The English Department in particular holds a reputation for being one of the most academic-oriented in Delhi University.

One has to think twice about skipping classes here.
FOREIGN EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE: Zilch. JMC does not have any exchange programs or collabor...
