IISC, Bangalore is the Best Choice
By Mayuk
Mar 31, 2021 0:07:47

Overall: IISc is a temple of science. Studying on this campus is a great opportunity. We get exposure to all disciplines of science and mild exposure to Humanities. I DON'T agree with what others feel about IISc making it sound like a nonsense course. In fact, the course does not focus on a single subject but rather takes an interdisciplinary approach to the sciences. I feel that this approach is crucial nowadays as the various disciplines of science do not have a clear-cut boundary. This is the 21st century and just studying one discipline of science won't do any good to you. A bit of everything is always better.

My Experience at IISC, Bangalore
By Ashish
Mar 31, 2021 0:07:02

Overall: You have a lot of extra-curricular activities that you can take part in. Almost every sport, cultural activity, etc have clubs which you can join. You can start learning instruments, you can volunteer to teach children, etc. It has been an amazing 2 months for me here. Classes like humanities provide us a platform to interact with eminent people and put forth our opinions and debate about them, like for example the ethics of science and stuff. There are absolutely zero raggings on the campus. The seniors have been great, have become great friends, and help whenever needed.
