With reference to the tentative schedule of the Jan-June 2021 semester available on the institute’s website, the semester examinations for the sixth semester will get over on 30th June’2021.   

We propose that exams for this semester end by January 15.

FOR SECOND YEAR STUDENTS: This will result in loss for future internship opportunities as they won't get intern preparation leave. This will affect their interviews and reduce the chances of being able to smoothly get through it.

FOR THIRD YEAR STUDENTS : This will clash with the dates of summer internship programs at prestigious organizations , offers for which were received as a part of campus placement drives. Internship programs will start between 26th April and 3rd May. As other colleges are given this gap of two months, other students will have internship experience and we won't be able to have one if we do not get this gap, which will eventually affect our final placements. The internships directly impact our job placements.

Doing these internships will also give us a chance to get pre placement offers from these companies.

FOR FINAL YEAR STUDENTS: This will clash with the dates of onboarding for higher education programs(GATE and CAT). As IIM and various other prestigious institutes have their onboarding sessions in the month of June. This will also clash with the joining process of companies in May 2021.

The problem arising due to the exams of ATKT for both SECOND and THIRD year students.

The ATKT students are not allowed to sit in placements. Hence their exams could be conducted at any time irrespective of internship and placement joining dates.

To resolve this conflict, we have a few solutions that we would like to propose:

1) Semester break between this and next semesters can be removed.
2) Classes per day can be increased from 4 to 6 (as is the case in offline class schedules).
3) Classes can be held 6 days a week instead of 5.
4) The break provided between the conclusion of classes and commencement of examinations can be reduced as preparation leave is granted in between exams as well.
5) Preparation leave between 2 examinations to be no more than 2 days

We believe these steps will be able to facilitate the conclusion of the next semester examinations in time for us to be able to join our respective summer internship programs, jobs and further studies.
