St. Xavier's College (Autonomous), Kolkata is known to be the best college in Kolkata and one of the best in the country. Apart from the various awards and rankings it has received, this college has also produced quite a list of notable alumni. But don't let that fool you. Unlike what most people would like to believe, being a Xaverian doesn't automatically make you great- your experience is good as the choices you make. The college is affiliated to Calcutta University, but is an autonomous institution. St Xaviers Kolkata Admission for most programmes, mainly depends on one's Class 12 Board results. However, for some courses, like mine (BMS Hons.), half the weightage is given to an entrance test. Once the classes begin, one realizes that there are a lot of rules here - sitting roll number-wise, following the dress code, maintaining 75% attendance and being on time for class, to name a few. Students are penalized if a rule is broken.Read Full Review
St Xaviers Kolkata is a great college but no rookies please as this college is just for the toppers. St Xavier's College Kolkata Admission is on merit basis and the cut-off for B. Com (Hons) is nearly 95 percent and therefore it has more outsiders than the locals. The college has been backed by many industrialists as they have been alumni of this college. A top pedigree and not just businessmen but actors, politicians, sportspersons have all been alumni of this college. The college was started by Britishers and the legacy is still continued as it is arguably one of the best colleges in Kolkata. It is rather safe to say that one will only find nerds here as the college has rules even harsh than the school. Attendance, mock tests, and even parents are called if the complaints against one start looming large. Education is the stress point but it doesn’t mean the rest other things have taken the back seat as they are also an equally prized possession of the college. Being a Xaverian is a pride in itself as I will carry this badge for the rest of my life.Read Full Review
I am an alumnus of distinguished St Xavier's College Kolkata and will always vouch for it as the college is a 150 years old college and follow a convent style of teaching. Only the toppers will have a chance to take admission here as the cut-off are as high as anything to get enrolled to this college. You may not get a wow factor here as it will be the same school kind of stuff here as you will have to maintain discipline and there’s no room for other things other than studies. Saint Xaviers University Kolkata does host a handful of events but all those are reserved for the ones who are talented or the ones who have proved their mettle in studies. I was somewhere in between and had to enjoy all of these from bleachers. It’s just a one compound college but still is one of the most sought-after as the management has utilized the small little place to the maximum. All your friendship goals, will be sidelined as the college will make you inclined more towards career goals.Read Full Review
