  • Ahmedabad....gave in 2014
    Centre: Gujarat University (i forgot the exact college name)
    Area: Navrangpura, in the heart of the city
    Accomodation: Decent budget hotels are available in the vicinity in areas such as satellite, vastrapur which are at around 10-15 mins driving distance
    Food: you might have to rely on fast food during the afternoon while u are writing the exam as quality restaurants are not present in that area. there is one McDonalds at around 500 mtres frm the centre
    Infrastructure is pretty decent
    Connectivity is also good. Around 25-30 mins from railway station and 40 mins from airport
    Congratulations to all those who cleared CSE 2014....!!

    Go for it.
    It may rain, but the centre is in the heart of the city, with good transport facilities. Also, tar roads, so no problem of mud.
    Prelims: 4. Mains: 2*. Interview: 1. Rank: NA.
    Literature of English Language.
