Section 2: Criterion-wise Analysis
Criterion I: Curricular Aspects
As an affiliated college of the University of Bikaner, the college follows the syllabi prescribed by the University for the Humanities, Sciences, Law and Commerce faculties both at the Under-graduate and Post-graduate levels, in the non-semester (annual) pattern.
