Kolkata's St. Xavier's College tops education rankings

St. Xavier's College, Kolkata, in eastern India, has beaten 328 higher educational institutions nationwide to top India’s National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) rankings.

The Jesuit-run institution emerged as India’s top college by attaining the highest cumulative grade point average — 3.77 — to get an A++ grade.

The Carmelite of Mary Immaculate-run St. Joseph's College, Kozhikode came second in the rankings.

Only these two colleges among a total of 328 assessed higher educational institutions in the country achieved the prestigious A++ grade awarded under a new grading system.

NAAC introduced the new grading system in July 2016, where it began grading institutions based on seven grades instead of the earlier four grades.

The council uses seven criteria to assess institutions that include teaching, learning and evaluation, curriculum, research, and learning resources.
