    The experience of my wonderful was amazing

    Academics

    I completed my B.Com Honours in Accounting and Finance in the year 2020 from Prafulla Chandra College also known as South City College which is affiliated under University of Calcutta. The quality of teaching here is good and updated. Currently the college follows the CBCS (Choice Based Credit system) guidelines where it helps to boost the academics of the students. Tutorials, Viva , Laboratory and Project Work are given equal weightage which makes the students excel in all parts of the field.

    Verified Review

    Academics

    I am pursuing my MSc in geography and the quality of teaching in our University is very good. But in my opinion sometime it lacks. The teaching style of some professors could have been better and those class are not intuitive also. Other than that everything looks fine and if someone wants to pursue research he or she might feel this is the best place to do it.
