Sri Chaitanya IIT Academy, SR Nagar, Hyderabad, Oct. 14: With the revision schedule set to kick in soon, some good news has arrived for the students of S1/ISB. According to sources, the timings will be cut down by an hour and a half, with the working day extending from 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM, a long-standing demand from S1.
It seems the college authorities did learn a lesson from last year, when they forced the students of the then S1 to study in college till 7:00 PM, even though IITJEE was close. That is seen as a major reason so many of them failed to qualify in spite of having the academic prowess. However, it seems the college wants to avoid the same mistake this year.
The new timings could take effect from Oct. 20 or Nov. 1. During classes, each subject will get three hours for studying, although these rules might have to be bent for Chemistry for a month or so.
Students interested in FIITJEE Talent Support Exam (FTSE) can learn about the test from the website. Hurry, the last date is Thrusday, Oct. 16.
