Infrastructure (15% marks)
Does the Infrastructure Really matter while Choosing a college? My answer is No. Common let’s be Honest as these days a lot of private colleges comes with great infrastructures but they really lack when it comes to studying and learning. Do not go by buildings or super luxurious Facilities as you are there to study not to enjoy your life in a swimming pool.
Here Infrastructure means a better Laboratory with Modern Equipment, Library, numbers of E-Journals available etc. Always try to visit the campus personally (If possible) to know more about the college of your Dream.
