Quotes

VNSGU vice-chancellor, Dakshesh Thakar, said, "The syndicate members had opposed in the past that these students should not be given special infrastructure as demanded by ICCR. Hence, VNSGU had to limit their numbers this year."
"The university should take steps to strengthen its entrance examination setup. There have been some or the other goof up in all the three Phd entrance examinations that it had conducted so far" said a student, who appeared in the PhD entrance examination for the second time
"Till now we used to choose from the applicants, but the committee never stepped forward to invite applications from academicians. This time we invited academicians as an attempt to give national exposure to VNSGU. My focus as chairman was to search for a person who can assure academic and infrastructure development" Doshi said
Students studying through external mode claim that the annual examination pattern is better for them. "I took admission in MA in external mode since I was employed. However, I was forced to take 15 days' leave twice in a year because of semester examination. The first semester examination starts within two months of admission and I did not get enough time to prepare" said Vishwas Maurya, a schoolteacher
