Q.2: Why did you choose PTU for your higher education?
Ans. Frankly speaking i'd heard many good things about PTU in past and i really liked the syllabus of PTU when i attended the counseling session at one of the PTU study center.
Q.3: Now how many semester you've completed so far?
Ans: I got the admission directly in 5th semester through PTU lateral entry system. As i mentioned above that i already has a 2 years M.Sc IT degree so they offered me a direct admission. As of now i've completed only one semester i.e 5th semester and second semester i.e 6th semester is about to be completed soon.
Q.4: Up till now how is your experience with PTU?
 Ans: I don't want to say any bad about the university but frankly speaking my experience with PTU is not good. I appeared in 5th semester exams in May 2013 and i got my result after 5 months in November 2013. I'm still awaiting a hardcopy of my marksheet since almost a year.
Q.5 We know many student were suffered that time as PTU had to postpone their exams. Apart from this incident did you faced any other problem with PTU?
Ans: No, Apart from this i didn't face any other problem with the university. I got the study material at the time of interview only and i also get all the information regarding examination & viva on a timely manner through SMS and through PTU official website and my study center also keep me updated about the same.
Q.6 How do you think MCA from PTU helps students in their career?
Ans: I find the syllabus updated as per the current IT industry. It helps students excel in their programming skills. At the end of the course all students are required to submit a project report which is really helpful. Overall i would say MCA from PTU is really helpful for anyone who wants to pursue a higher degree in computer application.
Q.7: Will you recommend our blog readers to take admission in PTU?
Ans: Although i faced some problems with PTU but i really find some of the things really good in PTU, specially the syllabus.

Ans: PTU has one of the largest network of study center in India for distance learning courses. You can easily find one near by in your area.
