M.E.S. College of Arts Commerce and Science, Bangalore Review
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.
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.
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).
