Giet collage is best or Bvc collage is best

Sayed Muzaffer Yaqub 27th Aug, 2019

One of the worst college in BPUT (Now deemed university) . They will take students taken for granted . they will show the placement record but facts figures are far away from them . Apart from TCS and some software companies; no one will get joining letter . All the core campus placement are fake . I am the sufferer of that . i have got placement on SEW Infrastructure limited in 2012 but never got joining letter . its my suggestion to go to Bhubneswar colleges , atleast you will get the exposure for offcampuses , where as in GIET gunupur - you will be slave . I am from 2008-2012 Batch mechanical engineering batch 


Sir,which is best college giet or aditya in rajahmundry in education and placements??is any other colleges better than these two.pls tel me?

Kambampati Rohith Student Expert 12th Aug, 2019

If you need a genuine opinion, I would not suggest either of the colleges. You wouldn't be able to get a good placement to start with. There are plenty other colleges in Andhra Pradesh that are amazing. There are JNTUK, AU,SVU, Gayathri vidya parishad vizag, JNTU Ananthapur etc., These are like the best colleges in Andhra Pradesh and they have very high cutoffs.
Good Luck!


Sir,i got GIET rajahmundry in 1st round of ap eamcet.ive repored with allotement order and joining report but i didnt pay any fee in GIET

Saksham Selwal Student Expert 10th Aug, 2019

Hello Suvarna,

When you get a seat allotted in the first round of the counseling, there is a deadline given to you before which you have to accept the admission in the college if you want to. If you fail to complete the admission in the given deadline your seat will be left vacant and passed to the next round of the counseling. Now, since you have not paid the fees in the college at the given time so your seat is vacant and you have to get the seat again in the next round.

All The Best.


Sir,which is best college in rajamundry.ISTS womens college or GIET.please tell me fast??In education and placements??

Gollakota Durga Sirisha Student Expert 7th Aug, 2019

Hello candidate. Both the colleges are better in their own way. But compared to ISTS womens college, GIET college is good in all the aspects. The college has good infrastructure facilities.  The college provides peaceful and pleasant to study. The faulty here are highly qualified and well experienced. The placement cell is good in the college. Top companies visit the campus for recruitment. Better go with GIET for bright future.
