Admissions in this college are entirely on the basis of entrance examinations. Admission through management quota is not available. For admission it is compulsory that, student must have first completed 10+2 with physics, chemistry, maths, biology and English as the compulsory subject with at least 50% aggregate marks from a recognised board. Selection for admission is made on the basis of score in NEET entrance exam. Student’s score will decide the rank and on the basis of rank student will get shortlisted for college. As per my experience I can say that student should work very hard as the college takes students with very good rank. Fees structure is very affordable as per my opinion.
