Ques. Is Calcutta University better than North Bengal University for studying Law?

● Top Answer By Sagar Pandey on 26 Oct 21

Ques. Which is the best university to study UG course in chemistry zoology CU, BU, KU or WBSU?

● Top Answer By Sakshi Gupta on 20 Oct 21

Ans. One of my friends studied at Calcutta University, so I might be able to give you some details about it. Calcutta University (CU) is one of the oldest functioning institutions in West Bengal. It is popular among students. In Calcutta, most of the colleges are affiliated with CU. The one thing that every CU student is familiar with is their strict grading system. Scoring even a 60% is very difficult. Some students even think this is a good enough score if you are a student of CU. Nowadays top reputed MNCs also demand at least 60% to be able to sit for placements. Finally, you should keep in mind that other mentioned universities may not be as old and experienced as CU, but they will show a bit of leniency while giving marks. So ultimately the decision is yours, whether you want to study in a reputed university with a strong and reliable alumni network or opt for the easier way out by getting admission to newer institutions.Read more

Ans. Calcutta University offers some of the best education possible in the country. It consistently maintains an admirable ranking among the top universities in India.  Your CV can get a big boost if you opt for the University of Calcutta. There are other institutes in Kolkata that are just as good as CU such as Presidency University, Jadavpur University St. Xavier’s College (Autonomous).

            Remarks :

            This college is better then other in career popularity , future value & good experiences etc. But some illegal (used management & political power) work here but don't worry if you not include in their problem you will continue and secure carrier. Admission process is West Bengal Joint Entrance Examination Board (WBJEEB) counselling or Decentralized Counselling, But in this year(2020) due to Covid-19 pandemic counselling process will happen totally online after 7th August(Result Date). University of Calcutta is famous for their previous history and now you have good position after pass out compares to other college. Facilities like seminar, gate preparation . And one thing by the end of the 4 year you have to challenge any kind of situation in your life. find the college you can visit their official website www.caluniv.ac.in

            Admission :

            My institute used to conduct its own entrance exam. Exam was of 100 marks comprising Maths ( Graduation level), English, Reasoning & General Knowledge. After qualifying the written test there was personal interview and on the basis of both the test the merit list was published. There were about five thousand students who took the test and no of available seats were 30.

            Remarks :

            Proper placement cell is needed. Also guide to get internships is the need of the hour.
