Review: M.E.S. College, Bangalore - An Overview
Review By: Ravi Shankar    Review Date: 11 Nov 2009   

M.E.S. College, which stands for Mysore Education Society, a very popular and familiar name in the vicinity of Bangalore South particularly in Malleswaram, which is one of the best locality in Bangalore.

Way back in 1956-57, the MES College was founded by a great visionaries and educationalists Sri.M.R.Narasimha Iyengar, Prof. M.P.L.Sastry, Smt. Vimala Rangachar and Sri. G.A.Acharya, keeping the future in mind especially girl students, have started this college at 15th Cross in Malleswaram, as till that time the nearby college was only Maharani's College, which is around 8-10 kms away from Malleswaram, it was started with a mere student strength around 68.

Though it was started at this period, but actual courses in Science was introduced in 1962, then onwards the popularity of this college has spread through out the country, for the quality of education it is imparting.

Later to accommodate the inflow of students in the college a four floor stone structure was built with a clear ventilation, with a well lit atmosphere, which is perfectly suited to give an effective teaching and learning.

It the early days it almost resembles the old traditional ‘Gurukulas' for its care, as it was started in a very small house known as ‘Anandashrama', at this stage it started imparting an eye-to-eye education system with great concern and compassion. Such quality has helped this college to become as one of the best full fledged college not only in Bangalore but also in the State.

Now, this MES College is providing value based education at an most economical and affordable cost along with the heritage of Indian culture, which insists its students to develop such qualities.

In 1982 the MES College celebrated its silver jubilee to commemorate its fruitful service since last 40 years.

The two more colleges have been working in the same campus.

Review: Review of M.E.S College of Arts, Commerce and Science, Malleshwaram, Bangalore.
Review By: Mohammed Umair    Review Date: 12 Nov 2011   

M.E.S College of Arts, Commerce and Science is the best college of bangalore for both pre-university course and under-graduate courses. Getting a seat in this college is like a dream come true.
Every year in the competitive examination held known as CET(Common Entrance Test), atleast 4 or more students will be in the top 10 list of all colleges of Karnataka. CET is conducted for admission to professional courses in different colleges based on our cet ranks.

Procedure of Admission

As soon as sslc results are announced, applications for admission to PU are supplied and parents are seen making a long queue just for taking application form. Such is its popularity.

Based on the marks scored in sslc, a first list is announced after few days. This list contains separately for Science, commerce and arts.
Another list(Second list) is also announced after about 2 weeks, since ICSE and CBSE syallabus results are usually announced late, providing them the opportunity to apply once their results are announced.
The college has reserved certain percentage of seats for minority categories which are OBC(other backward classes) and SC & ST. There is no bribery or influence to get into this college and is purely based upon merit and performance of the student in SSLC.

Now the selected students are supposed to get admitted with fees which is comparatively lesser than other colleges. Then the starting day of teaching classes are announced and the first day is kept as inauguration day introducing all students and parents about the college and its infrastructure.


The campus is good with a large central empty place which used for functions, skits and other curriculum activities. It also has spacious corridor, hygienic latterine facility, hygienic canteen with reasonable prices.

Class Rooms

The class rooms are fairly good in terms of infrastructure but due to high number of students intake in this college, each class accomodates around 80 students which sometimes is frustrating being sticked to each other because of lack of space. However, the class is divided into two columns, one for boys and another for girls. However, due to some chronic absentees, we do enjoy comfortness most of the times.


There are 5 laboratories with regard to science stream. 2 for chemistry, 2 for botany&zoology and one for physics. All labs are kept clean with all necessary equipments, solutes&solvents, botany specimens and specimens in zoology lab are quiet good.


There is a big library for both students as well as staff, with huge collection of books of all fields. One can borrow a book for fifteen days for free. Ground floor is kept for studying, 1st and 2nd floor has rackets of books of different languages and subjects.
Teaching Quality

Quality of teaching

The teaching staff is excellent and many of them are experienced working since many years. There are about 3-4 teachers for every department like physics, chemistry etc. The college gained its popularity mainly because of the authors of textbooks who are professors at mes college. One such example is Dr. Vishwanath, who is the author of the textbook physics and the same is followed by majority of students throughout the state.
However, some newly joined young teachers are not that good as they are not experienced enough and we literally used to make fun of such young innocent lecturers, good for students.


It is located in the first floor and has friendly staff helping students with formalities, announcements and providing different scholarship schemes time to time on their notice board.

The sport section has all the required elements of different outdoor games. Students represent this college in different sports like football, cricket, volley ball, basket ball etc. From every class, a sports representative is appointed for announcing any forecoming events.


Its amongst the best colleges of bangalore as well as whole karnataka in terms of teaching quality, infrastructure, office staff, canteen and entertainment during different functions. Pass percentage is always above 90% and most of them get into medical and enginnering fields(science section).
