Why autonomous colleges came?

Yeah, there is an interesting story behind this…….

Let me tell it once a well-known company visited Delhi for hiring a student and when they started the interview and noticed that only 20%-30% of the students are employable.

They finally conducted the survey to know the reason behind this and noticed that there is a huge gap in the syllabus thought by the University and which was in practice in Industry.

This survey made the rolling up of autonomous colleges where they are started setting up their own syllabus copy, question papers, etc. 

What are the Autonomous Colleges?

Autonomous colleges are those colleges that have their own rules and regulations in regards to the fee structure, question paper preparation, etc. 

In the case of Autonomous Colleges, some are affiliated with VTU but follow their own rules and regulation. 

The question papers are prepared from the same college and evaluation will be done by the same lecture who thought the subject to you, in the evaluation method of answer sheets there are mainly two evaluators one is internal and the other is external.

The internal evaluator is that person who thought the subject to you and the external is the different person who is unknown to you. 

Advantages of Joining with Autonomous Colleges

*You can easily pass the exam because the question paper is prepared and evaluated by the same college itself.

*You can crack the competitive exams because autonomous colleges mainly focus on that and it will be a little hard for VTU students.

*You can easily guess what kind of question paper you are going to get.

*You can plan the whole year because once the timetable is made it cannot be changed throughout the year.

*Academic will be more practical when compared to Vtu colleges.

Disadvantages of Joining with Autonomous Colleges

*Your Lecture is like your boss👀.

*You need to follow the strict policies of the college.

*You will find more if any damages are done by you.

*If your behavior is bad with a lecture there are chances of getting fewer marks.

*Sometimes your lecture behaves like your father in case of his orders.

*You need to attend extra classes if your lecture is planned.
