I Choose Biotechnology, as Centre of Biotechnology was the top in performance of other courses in research field and higher studies. We had a very close relationship with the faculty but during course work and viva teachers were strict, they should be. The teaching were mainly through ppt and all the faculty were PhDs. The exams were conducted mostly first we have quiz test then mid semester, then again quiz test, then practical and lastly end Semester. There were 2 semesters each year.
Fees was once decided and it remained same for 4 years. the fee hike was for the next batches. Job I didn't get as I belonged to btech biotechnology background and was aspiring only for core jobs but placement for other branches was too good
