WEEK 27 DAY 2
Sri Chaitanya IIT Academy, SR Nagar, Hyderabad, Dec. 4: Mrs. Jhansi has imposed her draconian new laws upon JIIT (JISB), without a single consent from the students as usual. The new rules make it mandatory (and presumably, a letter will NOT work this time) for JISB students to stay back till 5:45 PM to 6:00 PM and study, like their senior counterparts.
The Vice Principal, during a rudimentary EAMCET examination, told the students in condescending tones "you did not study the whole year, you will study now!" This was much to the chagrin of the already-overburdened students.
The new rules come following an abnormally low mark by some students in the last AIEEE exam. One girl (name withheld on request) scored a minus two in maths, lower than the lowest mark in even JIIT4. Others too performed far below average. However, thirty marks' worth of key corrections were not made (yet?).
OTFS has learned that most students will not oppose the new laws but would it as backup in case of low marks. The excuse would be simple: unable to study in college, no time at home!
For many however, it will be a lonely ride home, as only JIIT1 will be under the jurisdiction this new law.
The syllabus for Monday's IIT Unit Test-8 was released today. The syllabus consists of entirely new concepts and Organic Chemistry, a track that has proved to be particularly challenging, has completely new concepts that would have to be completed this week. Ditto, for other tracks.
An English exam would be conducted on Thursday. For those not in the loop, language exam marks are never noted down and there is no record of them. A zero in any language would not matter at all! (OTFS)
