Sd college is rated as one of the best colleges for commerce in Chandigarh and Mohali... The college crowd is very modern , friendly , and intelligent. The hostel facilities are also not so good but still attract a large number of studentfrom other cities. College faculty is over the top and hardworking. However the college charges a high fee from students but fails to provide high end facilities. The college infrastructure is not so good as compared to other colleges in the city. Overall the college us very good and provides a great academic career .

GGDSD tricity and surrounding areas .. The college faculty is one of the best faculties in tricity owing to which college offers good placement opportunities to students . The college crowd is quite awesome, modern ,intelligent and cool. The hostel facilities are also A grade and attract a large number of students. The college infrastructure is not so good as compared to other colleges in the city such as MCM , where many facilities are provided in the campus itself.However the college charges a good deal of fee from students but fails to provide comparative excellent facilities. . Overall the college is quite good and provides a great academic career to all commerce students. There should be some more development of infrastructure in my opinion to prove the college's worth.

Dear aspirant , as you have not mentioned properly so I am expecting you want to know about ggdsd college in chandigarh sector 32 also known as SD college which is affiliated to Punjab University Chandigarh. For that college admission isdone on the basis of counselling and the counselling are done and if you want admission you have to once check if there is any seat left and for that you need to visit the college.

Hope it helps.

With 93.4% in 12th commerce with additional maths can i get admission in ggdsd

Megha Bansal 11th Jul, 2019
Ggdsd offers three courses in undergraduation in commerce stream.
BBA, BCOM HON, BCOM GENERAL
The admission is merit based, and the past year merit lists show that you will get admission in this college as you get an advantage for having maths.
But I could guide you more specifically if you can specify which course you want, or if you are planning to switch stream to BA.

with 93.20%(general)...can i get into GGDSD college(chandigarh) for BBA?

AJit Kumar Student Expert 2nd Jul, 2019

Hi Divyansh

As BBA is centralised now in which 85% quota is holded by Chandigarh residents and 15% quota is holded by outsiders of Chandigarh. So if you belong to Chandigarh then there is no doubt about it, you will defenitly get it but if you are not resident of chandigarh then also in my view you may not face much difficulty ,you will eventually get it in this case also.
