IIT Kharagpur- Home away from home 5/5

College is a place where you get independence, and if you college is IIT Kharagpur, you are in your own hands! Here I have learnt how to be responsible and independent. I have learnt how to cope up with highs and lows. Studying 2 days before exams, having night outs with friends, being carefree for most of the time, asking for treats from the seniors, IIT Kharagpur gives it all. The hardwork pre JEE is completely worth it! Here I have got to take part in lot of activities and the coding and robotics culture here is very good.

Its not just a college it's Paradise. A place to learn, innovate and achieve 5/5

Everyone has some expectations with his / her college life. This place not only fulfilled them but also made me realize how narrow my vision was. I came across a lot of new , creative and amazing things i never even dreamt about. Only advice i can give to aspirants is to start exploring things beyond books and internet , interact with people , take part in activities 'cause this is where creativity emerges from.

It may not be the best of reviews but worth a read 4/5

It's a really good platform for all students irrespective of their streams. IIT Kharagpur is second best rated institution of India and there's no denying that as the results(interns, jobs and PPOs) are evident. It doesn't just focus on academic growth of a student but also helps to enhance an individual's overall personality. Society and hall culture specially contributes to this factor as they teach you how to work in group. It's all in one package!
