“The session was very helpful for me and all my doubts about the admission process are more or less cleared. Though, I would have wanted the Faculty to brief the students about the courses which are fairly new like Bachelor in Financial Market (BFM). Such courses are not as popular as other Honours courses and thus the students require some guidance”, said Vidhi, a BFM aspirant.
