Devchand College accredited as A grade college by NAAC with CGPA 3.07....congratulations to all stakeholders

 





The guidance in competitive examinations enables students to pass aptitude tests in corporate employments, entrance examinations of higher courses and jobs in banks and public sector.
Objectives:

    • To enable students to crack aptitude tests which are necessary to obtain jobs in organized sector;
    • To enable our students to clear entrance tests for higher level professional courses such as M.B.A., M.C.A., SET, NET etc.; and
    • To boost the confidence of students in competitive environment.

Attributes:
For seeking employment in organized sector or admission to higher courses the students have to face entrance exam or aptitude test. But unfortunately the curricula for our conventional courses do not have provision to impart the skill of facing such examinations. This course may provide them solution and improve their chances of success and achieve their goals.
Output:
Many of our students aspiring for government and bank jobs were not doing well in the competitive examinations as the training in competitive examinations does not form part of our regular curriculum. Hence our academic planning committee resolved to deliver a compulsory training in competitive examinations for second year UG students.  It helped our students to bring about further improvement in their performance in the aptitude tests conducted during campus selection by companies.
