5.0 15/05/2018
What I would highlight: The university is a nice place to be and has excellence marked in field of academics, but at the same time I feel that the university should make the entrance of students more standardised so that unnessasry and uneligible candidates do not enter the university and bring down its performance. Departments are also sporadic in terms of organisation. Apart from this stuff called students union is nothing but rubbish, its a way to make some money and no student wellfare thing. Corruption is also at its height in this university.
