About St Xavier’s Entrance Test

St. Xavier’s college was founded by German Jesuits in 1869. St. Xavier’s college is affiliated to the University of Mumbai. The College runs BMM, BMS, B.Sc. (I.T.), M.Sc. Biotechnology and MA Public Policy, Degree Courses on a Self-financing basis. The University of Mumbai awards degrees for all these courses.

The College received the status of Autonomous College under the University of Mumbai from the academic year 2010-11. Academic Autonomy allows the college to design its own courses, framing its own syllabi and conduct its own evaluation for its students. This system of academic freedom mandated by the UGC is in force in many other Universities in the country for about 30 years. Academic Autonomy does not involve Financial Autonomy and the fee structure will be in accordance with that of the University of Mumbai, which awards the Degree to the students of St. Xavier’s college.

The College is a Catholic Minority College, and 50% of seats are reserved for Catholic Minority students. Admissions to the BMS and BMM courses are through an Entrance Exam and Interview. The college receives more than 4000 applications every year for 120 seats (BMM -60, BMS-60)
