    My college is very good for educational purpose because they provide good education .
    Placements: My college students placement is very low; may be 5% of students get placed in the company. The highest salary is 30,000. The minimum salary is 15,000. This is very low. The roles offered are sales intern and sales manager. The company's name is KC Globe.
    Infrastructure: My college does not provide the hostel because almost all Delhi University colleges do not provide the hostel; they only provide the college, and they provide a college canteen. The canteen is not good or bad, but they also provide games and medical services.
    Faculty: My college teachers are very helpful because they also pass out the Delhi University, then always talk about the college and how to achieve the goals, always help for our semester exam, and also provide good materials and books for the semester exam.
    Other: I chose this because my courses are helpful for UPSC exams.

    Shri Ram College of Commerce - An Honest Review.
    Placements: About 90 percent of students are placed in B.A. ( Hons ) Economics, The Placement Cell SRCC leaves no stone unturned to ensure 100 percent placement to the students. Companies like DE Shaw, EY, PWC, Nomura visit the college to provide placements and internships. The highest package offered was about 36 LPA and the average package is about 10lpa.
    Infrastructure: The infrastructure of the college is pretty good with all rooms having ACs and Wi-Fi in every corners of the college. Every classroom has a projector and all necessary facilities are available. Hostel infrastructure is pretty good with single-sharing, double-sharing, and also triple-sharing rooms. Washrooms are hygienic and the mess food is also good.
    Faculty: All the faculty members and professors are well-qualified with vast teaching experience of more than 20 years. The Semester 1 exams or the Winter exams are of intermediate level and can be passed by studying consistently. The course and the curriculum are not so relevant to the current market scenario. The course is very theoretical and not so applicable in real life. The curriculum should be more practical based.

    School of Open Learning Review .
    Placements: No Placements are provided in School of Open Learning. No the highest or the lowest and the average packages are provided in School of Open Learning. No recruiting companies are there usually. No students got an internship from any course and in no companies. No top roles offered.
    Infrastructure: In my batch no classes are provided to students. But now Sol has started conducting classes on weekends for junior students so I have no idea about Wi-Fi availability, classrooms or library. Hostel is not for students in school of learning. No sports games available.
    Faculty: Teachers are averagely qualified. Teaching Quality is also average. Curriculum course is almost same as Delhi University regular college curriculum. It may or may not make you industry read based over additional courses you do and your experience level. College exams are bit tricky and difficult. Pass percentage is 40 percent.
    Other: I chose this course because my aim has always been civil services so this course proved to be as I had to attend coaching regularly. I wish we should have been provided with few classes in a week for better clarity. There were not events, fest, scholarships, activities etc. , .

    Reality of SRCC- the good side.
    Placements: Almost all the students are placed in college, whether low or high. The highest package is 44 LPA. The lowest is 4 LPA. HUL, Deutsche Bank, and Blackstone-like companies are coming to college. About 50–60 students get internships. Roles like finance analyst and risk manager are offered by the college.
    Infrastructure: Wi-Fi is available, but labs are not there since there is no science college. Classrooms have good facilities and they have AC. The library also has an AC and there is a sports complex with all kinds of facilities. All kinds of sports are available, like badminton and basketball.
    Faculty: Teachers are good and helpful and they are quite qualified but some of them are just average. The course is relevant for those who want to pursue higher studies in economics. The semester exams are quite similar to those in class 12. The pass percentage is around 99.
    Other: This course was more valuable than B.Com., and SRCC has a brand. The events are also quite engaging and the main event is Crossroads.

    SRCC, a college of excellence.
    Placements: SRCC is widely known for placement. Around 90 percent of the total students who applied this year got placed. The top package was 36 lakh, and the average package was 15 lakh. Mainly, the top consulting firms come for placement, like McKinsey, Deloitte, Bank of America, and Ram Group. Roles in finance and data analysis were offered by the companies. Talking about internships, the story is almost the same, with around the same percentage of students bagging internships in similar domains.
    Infrastructure: The campus is spread over 16 acres of land. It is although small but the facilities are good. Classrooms are air conditioned and a centralized eating system is also present. It is the only college in DU to have this facility. Free Wi-Fi is provided to all students and staff. There is a spacious two-story library with a seating capacity of over 200 students. Hostel accommodation is provided to both boys and girls. The quality of the facilities is decent but the fee is slightly high: a $57,000 yearly fee and a per-month mess fee and the electricity bill is paid separately. Mess food is okay because it is mainly run by the hostel union. The menu, staff, timing, and everything else are decided by the union.
    Faculty: The faculty is no doubt top-notch at SRCC. It has the largest number of faculty in commerce in the whole of DU. Since the college is affiliated with DU, the curriculum is decided not by the college but by the university. Still teachers try to add utmost value to it by making it rigorous and practical. Semester exams are moderate to difficult and the pass percentage is almost 100 percent.
    Other: I chose this course because I had an interest in economics. The curriculum is decent but can be made better. There are a huge number of societies in college and festivals are organised on a regular basis. The name of the annual festival is Crossroads, which is one of the biggest in the whole university.

    DU BA (Hons) FAQs

    Q:   Is there entrance exam for BA (honours) in DU?

    A: 

    At the undergraduate level, the University of Delhi offers BA (Hons) across 29 specialisations out of which 23 offered merit-based admission and the remaining offered entrance-based (DUET) admission to the students till 2021. Additionally, the University also offers BA Prog. course across multiple subject combinations (across different colleges) in which admission is completely based on merit scores obtained by the students in Class 12. However, starting 2022, DU admission to all the UG courses will get conducted via CUET UG.

    Q:   Does DU conduct entrance exam for BA (hons) in political science?

    A: 

    DU does not conduct any entrance exam for admission to BA or BA (Hons) courses. However, it accepts the scores obtained by the students in the CUET UG exam for UG admission at any affiliated college. Having said that, students can get admission to Delhi University even if they didn't apply for CUET. While the chances of getting admission will be much lower, here are some of the ways a student can get admission to Delhi University without CUET:

    1. Take a chance on the spot admission: You can try your luck at the spot admission process, which is conducted by Delhi University after the CUET results are announced. However, the number of seats available under the spot admission process is very limited, so your chances of getting admission are slim.
    2. Apply for admission through the Delhi University School of Open Learning (SOL): The Delhi University School of Open Learning (SOL) offers a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate courses that do not require CUET scores. However, the admission process for SOL is more competitive than the regular admission process.

    Q:   Which are the most popular BA (Hons) specialisations offered by DU?

    A: 

    Some of the most popular BA (Hons) specialisations include BA (Hons) in Economics, BA (Hons) in English and BA (Hons) in Political Science, among others. However, the popularity and choice of the course must depend on students' interest and academic background. A list of specialisations available under BA (Hons) available at different DU affiliated colleges is as follows:
