Adamas University, which is situated in Barasat area approximately 13 kms. From Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport. When I took admission here in this campus in 2017, the only thing I knew about this University and that is, it belongs to the RICE Group. I was not done with my research work, hence faced some difficulties in the starting of first year of my college. I was not aware of this fact, that University only focuses on government jobs & also university is extremely popular and having a huge success rate on engineering, law & management department. In 2017, our department i.e. BA & MA Journalism and Mass Communication was not that much on the hype. In fact the day I joined my university i.e. from August 2017 till mid of 2018 we were not being provided with the proper classrooms, our whole batch was roaming here and there in and around the campus when our lectures were not happening. Later on, media department shines bright from 2019, when our new Pro Vice Chancellor, who is from Media Background himself, who is also the dean of our department till date, took some serious steps to grow media in a unique way from all other institutions in our city. At the very beginning of 2020, Adamas University hosted its first official fest which was grand success only just because of this man. Some of the very popular universities in which Adamas University has partnered with are: Far Eastern University, (Manila, Philippines), University of Malaya (Kuala Lumpur), Yale University (New Haven) etc.
So coming to the admission process and all other criteria regarding admission in this university, So when I took admission in 2017, I didn’t given any admission test as I joined little late, so I was done with my basic formalities like filling up the admission form through their portal and then giving advance money so that seat may reserved. Now, the admission criteria is almost same, like For undergraduates one needs to score a minimum of 50% marks in Class XIIth and for Post Graduates one needs to have 50% / above marks in Graduation. College management overall is quite helpful from the starting itself, which I observed very minutely. Each and every problem of student listened very patiently, and try to solve as soon as possible. Be it from Admission to ongoing campus problems during the entire programme tenure. From staffs to academic advisor everyone is very concerned about Student’s problem.Read Full Review
Adamas University is established in 2014 a private university situated in Barasat, Kolkata. University was established in 2014 by the Chairman of Roy's Institute of Competitive Examination Private Limited (RICE) Group – “ Prof. Samit Ray" who also happens to be the chancellor of this University. The University has International accreditations i.e. during these entire 6 years of the formation of this university, Chancellor Samit Ray had took a strong Initiative to Collaborate with 50+ universities all across the globe. These Collaborations helps our students to do researches in any assignments which they love to do in a more advanced manner which may lead to a prosperous & bright future in their respective field. Not only that, Few of our students from various departments visit collaborated universities through International Relations Department from our university for few weeks, so that they get much exposure and be aware of newly advanced techniques of learning. Adamas University sponsors academic money also for students those who are interested in this abroad programmes.
Now, as it is associated with the RICE Group which happens to be almost 35 years old now, so we all are much aware that RICE Group is famously known for its government jobs and their success rate is best till date out of all the entire training institutes. Almost 80% Government employees have been trained from rice group in West Bengal. Therefore in this university apart from all the regular curriculum courses and programmes, university provides special training sessions for students to prepare for government jobs like Bank, Rail, WBCS, IAS & IPS like top rank government services and their success rate is very good. After training from RICE Foundation near about more than 80% determined students those who does hard work gets to crack interviews for the above mentioned government jobs.
Now I’m coming to the admission process of my university. So Adamas university's admission criteria is pretty simple. The admission criteria for under graduate students is that, student should carry a minimum of 50% marks in their respective Class XIIth and he / she have to give a basic entrance examination in which if they passed they are eligible to take admission in which ever programme they want to pursue their bachelors degree. Though for all programmes the admission criteria is not the same.
Admission particularly for B.Tech programmes will be based on the candidate performance in WBJEE / JEE Mains or Adamas University’s own examination process which is “Adamas University Engineering Admission Test". For post graduation courses, a student must score a minimum of above 50% marks in Graduation / if there is a Grade point system then he or she must have above 5 CGPA & then via entrance examination success rate he / she is eligible to take admission in master degree.
Well same system goes with masters too. Specifically 2-3 Departments have other criteria of fulfilling the requirement of taking admission, like for eg: For MBA Programmes one has to score good marks / one needs to score good grade points in CAT / MAT / XAT or Adamas University Management Admission test. For M.Tech admission, student have to make sure that he / she must score a good marks in GATE which might help to fulfill all other criteria for admission. College management system is also good, as they are very cooperative and helpful and most importantly will be available for all your queries.Read Full Review
