It is a good choice for MBBS because it is value for money and well-reputed.

Placements: Almost all the students in our college got placed as a doctor in government hospitals as a debt for bond. The highest package offered is approximately 60,000 to 90,000 per month in government hospitals, and approximately 1-1.25 Lacs in private hospitals. The top recruitment is done by government hospitals majorly. We are offered the role of medical officer (MO) in hospitals.

Gallery classrooms are available. AC works fine, and the benches are decent. Projector facilities are good. The reading room is very good, huge and motivating. The library is open from 9 am-5 pm.

Our chemistry department is very good, and I love my college.

Placements: Nearly 50% of students are present in the Chemistry department. There are many companies coming here for interviews. After M.Sc, most of the students get placed. But after B.Sc., students prefer to do M.Sc.

Infrastructure: In the MG Science department, the infrastructure is very good. The campus is fully Wi-Fi enabled. We get fresh air on campus. Another college is for girls, and it provides medical facilities. I am not a hostel student, so I can't say about it.

It has an amazing infrastructure and a Wi-Fi connection. Our campus has many laboratories.
