Student-wise allocation | Room-wise allocation

January 03, 2019, 08:25pm

- CGPA-based screening is made on all the requests available until now.
WE WILL PROCESS NO NEW REQUESTS.The theory course will run in two classrooms with half the registered population in each classroom. One classroom is NC233. The other will be announced after it is arranged centrally. The lab will run in two side-by-side CIC labs (PC LAB II and V). The split of the students will later be announced in this web page.

January 02, 2019

- All initerested students are requested to apply before tomorrow 8:00pm. We will
notentertain applications that are recorded after that (even in the case that ERP extends its deadline for course registration). We do not respond to individual e-mails about the application and the application-approval processes.

December 15, 2018

- Interested students are requested to apply via the ERP portal. Please keep in mind the following requirements.

- The timings for both theory and laboratory as mentioned above are to be treated as frozen and final. These timings are chosen so as to reduce clashes with other courses. However, it is impossible to find any slot that is free for everybody. So any further change may solve a few cases but will introduce new cases of clash.
- An applicant must not have any clash with these timings. If so, the students are supposed to make attempts to shift the other courses/labs clashing with these. Many of the lab assignments are to be submitted during the lab hours only. The submission server does not support extended deadlines on a case-by-case basis.
- The maximum capacity of the theory is 100 and of the lab is 125. If the applicant counts are much more than these, shortlisting will be made based only on CGPA (and on no other criteria). In order that the applicants who are not shortlisted can register for other courses, and keeping in view that the last date for course registration is 04-Jan-2019, I consider only those ERP requests that are recorded by 03-Jan-2019 08:00pm. I will do the shortlisting (if needed) immediately after that.
All approvals by me in ERP will wait until that time.- Neither the course nor the lab has any prerequisites (under the assumption that all applicants have cleared PDS theory and lab). Since the theory course and the lab are complementary to one another, it does not make enough sense to register for only one (unless somebody has done the other earlier or plans to do it later).
