c. Most undergraduate students of economics are the cream of students in humanities combination at the higher secondary level. There are some with a science or commerce background.

d. In the tune with the general trend of the college, most of the students are from disadvantaged strata of the society. Though this is apt to pose difficulties in terms of resources and financial support, students are generally successful in tiding over the difficulties thanks to grants, concessions, scholarship and part-time employment.
