With a humble beginning as a pre-university college on the auspicious 12th July 1957, NGM College has over the last six decades blossomed into a premier post graduate teaching and research institution in Tamilnadu, attaining the coveted Autonomous status in 1987. It is a co-educational ISO 9001-2008 certified, UGC & AICTE recognized institution, affiliated to Bharathiar University, Coimbatore. In 2007, it was one of the 7 institutions in Tamilnadu to be accredited with ‘A’ Grade by NAAC in 2003.

With the advent of autonomy, it became incumbent on the institution to assume many of the responsibilities and functions of a typical university. Consequently, a few academic bodies had to be set up: one of them was the office of COE. To manage all matters relating to the Examination System, a separate body called the Examination Office under the control of a CONTROLLER OF EXAMINATIONS has been constituted.

The Examination Office consists of a Controller of Examinations, One deputy Controller of Examinations, One Office Superintendent, One Software Developer, 7 Clerk-cum-computer operators and two Office Assistants. The Examination Office is now functioning in a centrally located building in the College Campus.

The Examination Office is equipped with one Hi-tech IBM Server One ultra fast line Printer, 1 Epson Scanner and 12 Computers, 2 Digital Copy Printers, 2 Copier Machines, and two intercom phone lines, and One Separate Landline Phone.
