Welcome to Chandernagore College

The origin of Chandernagore College dates back to the establishment of “L'Ecole de Sainte Marie” in 1862 by the French Jesuit Missionary Father Magloire Barthet. The institution which was run by the Jesuit Missionaries, was placed under the responsibility of the French Government on the 15 of December 1887. In 1901, its name was changed to “College Dupleix”. After India obtained Independence, the new government of the free city of Chandernagore renamed the college as Chandernagore College on 17 May 1948, a name which remains till today. After the merger of the free city with the Indian Union on 9 June 1952, the college came under the control of the Ministry of External Affairs and it was finally integrated with the state of West Bengal on 2 October 1954. Chandernagore College became affiliated to the University of Burdwan in 1960. Consequently, Chandernagore College became a college administered directly by the Government of West Bengal. The college was re-accredited by NAAC in 2016 and was awarded the B++ rank. At present the College offers courses (both Honours and Pass) in all major subjects in Science, Humanities and Commerce streams, including Post-Graduate courses in Bengali, Geography and French.

The University of Burdwan has implemented a semester-based Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) from the 2017-18 academic session. Hence, the students that have being admitted to Chandernagore College will have to abide by the modified structure.

The evaluation of the candidates will be based on continuous assessment. Each semester assessment shall be divided into four (4) discrete components, i.e. C1, C2 , C3 , and C4 . Internal Assessment of each course will consist of C1, C2 & C3 taken together. C1 and C2 will be based on class test or assignment and comprises of 10 marks. C3 would comprise of 5 marks for attendance. Award of 5 marks on class attendance shall be given in the following manner:

Attendance 60% & above but below 75% - 3 marks
Attendance 75% & above but below 90% - 4 marks
Attendance 90% & above - 5 marks

C4 comprises of the Final University Examination of 60 marks. The marks obtained in each course in a semester shall be the sum of C1, C2 , C3  & C4 and shall be awarded in the form of Grade.
