5 colleges assessed for first time by NAAC get 'B' grade

As many as five colleges in the State which were accredited and accessed for the first time by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) have only managed to secure a ‘B’ grade. This comes close to a previous list of first-time colleges that did not make it to the top ‘A’ grade, as well. 

The NAAC released a list of institutions throughout the country which have been recommended for accreditation based on the 11th meeting of the Standing Committee that took place last week. 

The colleges are Sanjay Gandhi College of Education, Bangalore; BVV Sangha’s College of Education, Bagalkot; M L Manjaiahsetty Narasimhasetty College of Education, Chikkamagaluru and Makanur Malleshappa College of Education, Davangere.

Contrary to the above result, as many as six colleges which had applied for accreditation and assessment for the third cycle received an ‘A’ grade. The six colleges are BLDEA’s SB Arts and KCP Science College, Bijapur; MES College of Arts, Commerce and Science, Bengaluru; Nitte Education Trust’s Dr Nitte Shankara Adyanthaya Memorial First Grade College, Karkala; Sri Jagadguru Renukacharya Education Society’s SJR College for Women, Bengaluru and Yuvaraja’s College, Mysore. Two colleges — Dr PGAS Samiti’s Pandit Panchaxara Gavaigalavara Music College, Gadag and KLE Academy of Higher Education and Research, Belagavi — which were accredited in the second cycle received the ‘B’ and ‘A’ grades, respectively.

A list of colleges which had applied for the first cycle of accreditation and assessment by NAAC was released in November last year. None of the colleges, however, received the coveted ‘A’ grade. Among these eight institutions was also the R V College of Engineering, Bengaluru.
