I can only blame myself as I took 12th too casually and scoring 42% meant, either I can do studies through correspondence or do studies in Universities that have no strict criteria for admissions. I could have had admissions in ‘GD Goenka’, ‘The NorthCap University’, or others but I still chose ‘GITM’ as they gave a lot of discounts in fees. I knew something was fishy but it’s ok, the money was more on my mind as my 12th percentage was such that I couldn’t lift my chin in front of my parents and tell them I want to join this or that University. The quality of education imparted here was less than the learning I had in school. If there’s a term less than pitiable, trust me that will fit right for GITM. The name of the College is such that if you tell someone I am studying at ‘Global Institute of Management and Technology’ they will be like oh is there any such Institute. Very little they know that apart from the name, nothing is great about this institute.
BBA was less than a BA at GITM. There were initially 4 Institutes that came under GITM but as of now, three have been closed as the rule has been laid out that one can’t run a University until they have 20% admissions. I wish I had learned this before joining BBA here. Out of 420 seats for BBA, our batch just had 140 students. This also suggests that the academic future of many students is uncertain or hanging. Well, poor stuff, academically we were taken on some industrial tours and on those tours, we were taken to villages nearby and we were made to attend some unwanted seminars. I had to search out for some bright prospects because I knew my future was in a dire state of uncertainty at GITM. Also, forgot to mention about the marking system here. The internal accounts for 50% and forget me, even the brightest students got 28-30 maximum out of 50, which means 60% was the maximum that one can score at GITM.
If there’s something called a bright spot then, at least they were there. However, how could GITM let that happen, so as the number of admissions dropped the number of faculties too, were cut down to 15 from 25. 15 faculties for 140 students is still a good ratio but they let go some of the best experienced faculties. The professors who were left were still good barring a couple as they found pleasure in torturing students. If they have issues with us, they will make us write the same assignments 4-5 times as punishment. Who does that in College life? But at GITM, where worse things happen, this was still manageable.
Since, it's noon while I am writing and in some mood for cracking a joke. The College management during admissions, told my parents that they will kill themselves if they don’t get us placed. Here, I am a clear proof that I didn’t have any placements or even a chance to get placements from GITM. My parents were like, ‘the voices have told me and I am confident that you will get a job from campus’. I think two jokes are enough for me to make readers understand that there are no placements at GITM.
There was one boy’s hostel named ‘Kaveri Boy’s Hostel’ and a girl’s hostel named ‘Sarojini Naidu Hostel’. The four-floor hostel had AC rooms on the first two-floors of the boy’s hostel and the top two-floors had non-AC rooms. The hostel might have capacity to accommodate around 500 students, but I don’t think it was even half full.
Well location-wise, the College is great as DLF Phase IV is one of the fastest developing areas in Gurgaon. The campus was big as the area of the campus was 18-acres and had a nice set of buildings, amid greenery all around. The campus has it all from a library, a hostel, a canteen, and a nice playground. For hostellers the library is open 24/7 but I wonder if there were more than a handful of students who used that library. The internet was the fastest here, as using the College WI-FI was the best use that I made out of College resources. The other area of the College, where I had spent my maximum time was the College cafeteria named 'Sip-n-Bite Café'.
Very soon I realized, College will not take anyone to places and everyone had two choices. Either they can prepare for entrances or go and sit with their family businesses, who had any such business. I was not eligible for the second part, so I had to prepare for entrances and I skipped classes and attended a prime Institute for CAT coaching. The College strength was low but the fest had the entire strength of the College together, as the annual fest ‘Aashirwad’ was celebrated with full of enthusiasm and students showcased all the skills they had.
