You can build your career because there is no pressure here.
Placements: They don't offer any kind of placement or internship. But if you are hardworking and smart, then take the help of the teachers for guidance. You can work under an accountant for an internship while you are completing the course so that you have experience to build your career.
Infrastructure: They have a small space surrounded by buildings. The classrooms are good; they have small classrooms on the second floor and big classrooms on the ground floor. Small canteens, stationery shops to buy books, copy stuff, etc. are available. There is also a common room for any kind of event practice.
Faculty: Teachers are helpful but their is no such pressure on attendance. You can do other courses with this course as well, like banking preparation, as they are not under any pressure. Teachers are qualified and knowledgeable but their teaching styles are old. Yes, the course curriculum is relevant. They will give you knowledge but you have to use that knowledge to make yourself industry-ready. The exam is taken by CU. For the exam, solve 10 years of CU papers.
Other: I have chosen this course to have good knowledge of accounts, as it is always in demand. You can do further courses to upskill yourself. The best thing is that after completing your B.Com., you can work as an accountant under someone. Some practical exposure will make this course even better. Various competitions happen, like dance, fashion shows, sports, etc.; the campus crowd is okay; the campus surroundings are okay. Fest happens every year.

College life is something different and I guess you will enjoy all of it here.
Placements: Various companies come to college; most of them are polymer-based companies. JK, MRF, CEAT, RELIANCE TYERS, CREST and many other MNCs visit for campus placement and offer internships. And with the help of professors, one can embrace much more companies than one looks for.
Infrastructure: With Rs 30k, you are in one of the best places in West Bengal to study with fewer issues. The lab is well equipped but lacks staff. Sorry to say but due to the lack of a recruitment process by the government, such a phase is not yet there. Professors are very cooperative and give us all kinds of aid and positive support, which in general breaks all such disgrace.
Faculty: As it is Calcutta University, you are bound to do the daily class, but in the case of Polymer, the scene is different. Also, in a government college, you will find many fellows of different breeds; hence, somehow your time will pass in excitement.
Other: A very new, aspiring and up-and-coming course. Also, the fact that it uses chemicals to create a technical degree makes it more unique. The size of the department might be small but it has great networking and net worth.

Do not expect placements; come only if you want to save money for further education.
Placements: Our college does not even have a proper placement cell. Some job fairs are organized in our college; however, the company's main motive remains promotions and not placements. Few students get placed but the highest salary offered last time was only INR 18,000 per month.
Infrastructure: Infrastructure is not that good but still considerable. Classrooms are equipped with proper desks; however, there are no projectors. Forget about air conditioning; our college does not even have proper computers for practical work. Our college does not have a canteen, and sports events are organized a few times a month.
Faculty: Teachers are not that helpful; they only come to the class, give lectures, provide notes and that's it. However, if someone has any doubts, they do try to solve them. Our course curriculum is definitely good since it follows all the syllabus and examination patterns of Calcutta University.

Better than any boarding college nearby for me.
Placements: 67% of students get placed in our college every year by various MNCs and local companies. The top recruiting companies are Google, Microsoft, Infosys, TCS, etc. The highest package is 56 LPA, the average is 5 LPA and the lowest is 2 LPA, which is very rare. Human Analysis and Chemical Engineers are two of the most popular positions available.
Infrastructure: Wi-Fi is very new in our college and very fast in the morning and at night, but sometimes it's laggy or jittery. Labs are very well-equipped with new gadgets and Biology lab is so big with better materials, microscope and electronic microscope are also available. Food quality is very medium.
Faculty: Teachers are helpful and they have been helping me from my first year to now in every situation and they are very good at their teaching. The course is curriculum-relevant and students gets proper treatment for industry-ready training Semester exams are pretty standard with the current syllabus.
Other: I chose this course as it has many scopes for my future dream career. I want to improve the fee structure and scholarship. Fests are only held once every four years.

Faculty is so good in the college.
Placements: 98% of students are placed in our college every year and they are in chemistry. The highest package is 78 LPA, the average is 7 LPA and the lowest is 2 LPA. The top companies are Cognizant, TCS, Infosys, Google, Microsoft, etc. The top roles are engineers and chemical analysts. 78% of students got placed in internships.
Infrastructure: Labs are well-equipped and classrooms are clean very well. There is so much space available in our class and Wi-Fi is available on the college campus, which is very fast and never downtime but speed is medium at night. The food quality is medium at the mess but good at the canteen.
Faculty: Teachers are very helpful and qualified in their teaching and extracurricular curriculum and their teaching quality is quite interesting in chemistry. They have helped me whenever their is a doubt and the course is relevant as it is an important subject. Semesters are easy within studies.
Other: I chose chemistry because I always get good numbers in it, no matter what the exam is. The college needs to be more open to a new educational style. Events and fests are organized every year on the college campus.
