Admission :

The admission is through an entrance exam. During the early 90's ( I took admission in '91) there used to a scholastic test followed by an aptitude test for the college as it was deemed university. There were 65 seats for architecture and 20 seats for planning all over India. It was not centralised through NEET as it is now. The college had a great reputation and was one of the top three institutes for Architecture in India back then.

Remarks :

After so many years down the line, dont think I have any negative remarks about the college. though there used to be complaints when we were young, as one would expect.

Admission :

I opted for architecture in order to contribute to the developing society and country. SPA DELHI is the best institution in India for this course. I appeared for the JEE paper 2 exam, and scored 99.8 percentile to secure a place in this prestigious institution.

Remarks :

The college is a govt one. So the administration is a but slow. However the major management is carried by the student body, so it is efficient.

Admission :

Joint Entrance Examination paper 2 is required to get admission. I have the exam in April 2016. The admission process is conducted through JoSAA (Joint Seat Allocation Authority). I couldn't get the college in the 6 rounds. Based on choice and rank. I was in another college for 1 month. Then I got in there in spot round.

Remarks :

Good thing is the Best college for architecture in India where you can learn a lot. Bad thing is old campus. Hostel is 10 kms away. Also the pressure of the course. We are given homeworks and need to all night long work often.

Admission :

Gave the NATA exam, which can be given anytime you prefer and then i sat through the admission counselling/selection process, and selected the college based on the nata and cbse score combined. The colleges were given based on cutoffs

Remarks :

Overall I'd say it's a pretty good college considering its much better than alot of colleges in Delhi and even though it's not perfect or anything to be impressed with. It still holds up as one of the best colleges in Delhi in my opinion.

Admission :

First I filled the application form during February then got shortlisted list during march then had an interview in April then I got selected list and wait-list during end of April. Interview questions will be so general such as where are you from, and why did you choose this course and what is your future aim and why did you choose that particular department.

Remarks :

Visiting faculties are Soo gud and they are gud aged people till 60years and have very gud in-depth knowledge and experience in practical field which is a plus point. Some departments are very good like transport having good staffs, but people are supposed to work beyond their limit. Some departments are too chill.
