Welcome to Chemistry Department

DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY

    Chemistry department is one of the oldest departments of A.S.D.Govt.Degree College for women, Kakinda established in the year 1963.

In 1968, the Devasthanam handed over the college to the Government of Andhra Pradesh. It was admitted to clauses 2F & 12B of U.G.C act with effect from 17-06-1972. A.S.D.Govt.Degree College functioned as a composite institution till 1996. Many Intermediate students got ranks in Entrance examinations for Professional courses like Engineering, Medicine, Agriculture B.Sc and B.Pharmacy etc.

Later in tune with the policy of U.G.C. – The Government of Andhra Pradesh has bifurcated this institution into Junior and Degree colleges in 1996. Since then the chemistry department is handling only degree level teaching.

Many degree students got ranks in AUCET and B.Ed. entrance examinations. Students who got best ranks in AUCET, have joined course like M.Sc Chemistry, Physics, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Botany, Zoology etc.

Staff Composition:

            Out of five posts, at present three regular staff members having M.Sc. qualification, NET with research experience and one guest faculty are working in the department.  The conventional courses we offer in B.Sc. are

  • 1. Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry in Telugu medium.
  • 2. Chemistry, Botany, Zoology combination in Telugu medium.
  • 3. Chemistry, Botany and Microbiology in Telugu medium. 

In each conventional Telugu medium courses, every year 100(40+40+20) students are admitted. This year the university has given permission to enroll 50 students from each group. In this composition the number twenty indicates the students from restructured course Viz., C.B.MB.

During this academic year 237 students are studying in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd years of B.Sc. courses (104+71+62=237).  About 36.2 % of girls belong to S.C., 10.8% of S.T., 36 % of backward classes. As this happens to be a government institution, every year more or less the same composition of students are studying at this institution.  During this year the cut of mark for admission at the entry level is 35 % for all the courses respectively.
