Shuffling Deffered


Sri Chaitanya IIT Academy, SR Nagar, Hyderabad, Oct. 23: The college reopened today without much hype, but failed to deliver on their promise to shuffle the First Year students. The reason for this delay is unknown. Although the college management refused to divulge any details, OTFS has learned that it would take place either tomorrow, sometime this week or on November 1, but not beyond that. Furthermore, sources have told us that there is hardly any change from the original distribution of students and that the shuffling will only be a minor one.

Icon Star Batches?
Mr. Ravi Kumar told OTFS that not only would an ISB be formed for the first year, but multiple ISBs would exist. In Kukatpally, Jr. ICON has three ISBs. The number for SR Nagar is not known.

Also, the ISBs would receive a separate question (obviously of a higher standard) than the remaining ICON sections. How feasible it is to make so many question papers for the same chapters is a matter that needs to be debated.

IIT Exam Postponed
The college also announced that next week, instead of an IIT Unit Test on Monday, there would be an AIEEE test on Monday and EAMCET on Tuesday. The syllabus is considerably shorter and arguably easier than usual.

Also, the results of the AIEEE and EAMCET exams held before the vacations were given out today. The results threw up some surprises. (OTFS)
