The Must Haves - What to (NOT) get from home


This is probably the first time most of you will be moving away from home, and even for those who were away for coaching - this will be your first experience in setting up your rooms all by yourself. The rooms in campus are typically small in size and a little tight to accommodate, a fact that often shocks/scares parents, but then it encourages two things which will really benefit you in the long run :

1. Spending major chunks of time away from your room (except exam times :D)
2. Adjusting and all associated terms with your room-mate (who, as you will realize, might become one of the most important persons in your life)

From our experience, we bring to you a list of items - essentials and optionals. It may not be exhaustive but has most of the things. To make it easier, we've colour-coded the items for you :
a) Red - Definitely must get from home.
b) Blue - You may bring these if you already have them.
c) Green - Best purchased from Mumbai.
The rest are to your discretion.

Room necessities:
(Two cots,a table, a chair, and a cupboard, all of fairly decent quality are provided by the institute in every room)

1. Clothing + Raingear: Mumbai is usually known for warm to hot summers, heavy rains and mildly cold winters. So, carry more of light summer wear. Do your packing/shopping keeping in mind that clothes do not dry quickly during the monsoons. You may choose to postpone carrying winter wear (a blanket or quilt and a pair of jackets should do just fine to keep you warm) to your Diwali break or the December holidays. Carry an umbrella and/or a raincoat and have them on you all the time during the Monsoon months. There is no dress code in the institute but you are expected to dress up decently. It's convenient to wear cargos or shorts for the rainy months. Apart from that, you are free to wear what you want - T-shirts, jeans, shorts, shirts - whatever. You might also want to get a pair of traditional clothes. Most departments celebrate a department traditional day in the autumn semester.
Do get Umbrellas along. Rainwear that may suffice in many other places might still not be enough to shield you from Mumbai rains.

2. Footwear: A pair of slippers/floaters, a pair of sandals and a pair of covered shoes (you would need to wear these to your labs) is recommended. Get footwear that you can use in the rain - at least one pair that won't become unusable if wet. Shoes specific to some sports might be bought after coming here. However, you may carry gum soled shoes and football studs if you have a pair already.

3. Stationery: We advise you to skip carrying any. There are enough shops around. But if you already have them, you might carry a Scientific Calculator (FX 991 MS/ES by Casio are the ones most of your seniors use), Staplers (with pins), Punching machines, U-bend pins, binder clips and a couple of folders. Workshop Tools, ED Instruments and Lab Coats that you would need may be shared among batch-mates, borrowed from seniors, or bought here. If you have your Class XII Lab Coat at hand, do bring it along.

4. Books: Though you won't need all books that you used for JEE Preparations, you might want to bring some standard ones. You might want to carry standard ones like Thomas and Finney, Atkins, JD Lee, Solomon, etc.

5. Clotheslines, Hangers, Cloth hanging clips: There are ropes meant for hanging clothes outside every room, but if you prefer using your rooms for drying clothers during monsoons or hanging them in the balcony, carry (or buy from here) some clotheslines and clothespins. Hangers aren't provided in the rooms.

6. Bed sheets, mattresses and pillows and pillow covers (extra set is preferable as drying is a problem in rains), Curtains (optional), Blanket or quilt (you could opt to get this after your Diwali break too, the typical cold season begins only in late November or early December and lasts into the mid of January).

7. Bucket, Mug, Waste Paper Bin, Soap Cases: Buy them from either the many shops outside the Market/YP Gate, or the temporary shacks outside Hostel 4 which are set up for a week about the time you enter.

8. Lock and keys (2 sets of keys as you'd be sharing the room): Keep extra sets handy. While travelling, you might want to lock your luggage as well.

9. Net for window: There is a serious problem of insects in campus, especially during your initial days when the monsoon season is still on. It is advised you have nets fitted to your windows. Usually, a vendor visits the hostel during the initial few days for this. You might find the rates exorbitant but you have little choice. You could split the charges with your roommate.

10. Anti-insect sprays, bed-bug sprays, All Out, Odomos, Naphthalene Balls: It is strongly suggested you keep these items with you, you will find them useful.

11. Spike guard, Multiplugs: You would typically have only 1 plug point per person in the room (or, in some cases, just 1 per room), so extension boards are a must. Also, the power supply is meant for 5 Ampere applications, so please do not carry any heavy electrical appliances like Irons/Heaters unless you have ensured that the current rating is not above 5A.

12. Broom: Rooms are cleaned once a week by the House Cleaning Staff of the Hostels. The rest is your responsibility.

13. Miscellaneous: Medicine kit (advised, you may not want to go to the IIT Hospital for every little thing), soap, shampoo, handwash, detergent, brush, torch etc. Sports equipment, if you play or are enthu enough (racquets, balls, proper shoes etc) and for music enthusiasts, your own guitar, santoor, flute or tabla - anything.

The good thing about being in Mumbai is that you can buy almost everything from here at reasonable prices (if you know where to look). Don't hesitate to ask seniors - their opinion is invaluable at most times. So, don't fret if you forget to carry something. Carry the basics so that the first thing you don't have to go shopping the moment you reach Mumbai.

Feel free to reply on this post for related queries.

Happy Settling In!


Freshmen To-Do List

Brief Writeup of things to do when you arrive at campus



Daily needs

For the most basic of amenities such as toothpaste, toothbrush, pens, soaps and other such items (which one would use daily), the hostel canteen or Xerox shop would be an ideal place to find them. The shop in Hostel 12 which stocks almost everything one would need and more- from slippers to stationery to biscuits and towels, with servings of Computer RAM and MP3 Players, is a good alternative. One may also go to Haiko or D-Mart in the Hiranandani Complex for these. Alternatively, the shopping complex at the Y-Point Gate can also take care of most of your needs. The YP market has a dry cleaner and a tailor as well, just in case.


Stationery and Books

For notebooks, bags and most stationery items including journal sheets and rulers/set squares/protractors, there is the Co-operative store located on the MB ground floor near the library. For buying reference books, there are two book shops, Book World and Popular Book Store, both in the campus, and where you can get discounts on course-related books. You also have the option of buying second hand books from the Jay Ambe bookshop located outside Main Gate. For basic black and white photocopying, most of your hostels would have printing and xerox shops of their own. If you're looking for coloured or A3 sized printouts, H8's printer shop would be the place to be.


Cellphone connections and credit

For recharging your cell phone credit account, H3, H8 and H12 in particular have shops where you can get almost all kinds of top-ups or recharge cards. Alternatively, if you have a debit card and a vodafone account, you could also log on to vodafone.in and recharge your account online. It is also a good idea to check out all the schemes available for different connections before settling on a cellphone service provider. There will be multiple temporary stalls inside the institute for first few days of the session, otherwise Airtel and Vodafone connections are easily available at Main Gate. Reliance has a store in Hiranandani near Subway. Vodafone has a store near the Delphi Building (next to the Cafe Coffee Day outlet). In case of pre-paid connections, you need to submit a photo ID card and documents to prove that your address is what you have written in the form. If you do not do it within 2-3 days of buying the SIM, it will be disconnected. If you need passport sized photos for any forms (you should always keep some handy) you can go to the Navrang Photo Studio (Galleria) or the one right opposite Main Gate and get them clicked.


Registration

On day 1, students are supposed to bring documents specified on their admission letter. Once the document verification is done on the first day, registration for courses is done in different slots. Students are segregated according to their department and the process of online registration is carried out.


Hospital

All students are entitled to free treatment at the IITB hospital. The students are first supposed to submit a few documents that contains their previous medical record as well as their vaccination record. If one hasn't been administered with the specified vaccinations, there is no need to worry. The institute has regular vaccination drives where one can get this done.


Fee Payment

As far as fee payment is concerned, incoming students are advised to open a bank account in either SBI or Canara Bank, Powai. The fee can be paid either online using net banking or offline through cheques or DDs.


Meet the mentor assigned to you

At IITB we have an amazing mechanism of respected and well accomplished senior students in their fourth/fifth year of study guiding the freshmen through their formative years here. Together constituting the ISMP team, the mentors help the first year students’ make a smooth transition from life at home to life at this institute and help in clearing out hurdles in their path. It would be advisable for you to meet the mentors when you arrive on campus for the orientation. It would be beneficial if you could also stay in touch with mentors during the course of the semester.


Exploring insti

There are many places to go around the insti including the boathouse, Sameer Hill, Lakeside etc. We don’t want to give away too many of these :P Explore for yourself :)

Letter to Parents



Dear Parent/Guardian,


It gives us immense pleasure to congratulate you and your ward for your exemplary success at IIT JEE Advanced 2017. The Institute Student Mentorship Program (ISMP) would like to welcome you and your ward to one of the most prestigious institutes in our country, the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB). As you might know, this institute has been home to some of the most distinguished personalities on the global map, and we look forward to developing many more such minds that will serve for the betterment of technology, our country and above all, mankind.

We believe that, as well-informed parents, you should be familiarized with both the academic and the extra-curricular lifestyle of students at this institute and get an idea about the various opportunities that your child will have, as well as the underlying responsibilities. The faculty at this institute strives hard to make sure that the academic needs of each of their students are taken care of and also to make his/her stay here fruitful. However, there may be times when students require help, academic or otherwise, and we, at the ISMP see to it that these requirements are met promptly and in the best way possible. We would like you to extend your assistance for the same by simply making sure that you know a few things about this institute, to get a general idea of how things function here. This letter is written with the purpose of helping you understand the same.


Institute Student Mentor Program (ISMP)

At this institute, we have respected and well accomplished senior students in their fourth/fifth year of study mentoring all first year students. These mentors together constitute the Institute Student Mentor Program, aimed at providing guidance and help to first year students. The mentors help the first year students make a smooth transition from life at home to life at this institute, and help in clearing the hurdles in their path. It would be advisable for you to meet the mentors when you arrive on campus for the orientation. It would be beneficial if you could also stay in touch with mentors during the course of the semester.


Academic Structure

A typical academic year at IIT Bombay is divided into two semesters – Autumn Semester (July-November) and Spring Semester (January-April). The curriculum at IIT Bombay is based on the credit system. Each course is allotted credits based on the number of lectures, tutorials and lab hours per week. There is continuous evaluation by means of quizzes, assignments, mid-semester, end-semester examinations and lab work throughout the semester. At the end of each semester, the student gets an SPI (Semester Performance Index) which is an average of the grades in each of the courses he/she had registered for in that semester, weighted with the credits of those courses respectively. CPI (Cumulative Performance Index) is a weighted average of all the SPIs (till date) weighted on the number of total credits each semester.

The importance of maintaining a steady attendance in classes here cannot be understated. It is advised that students do not miss classes due to trips home or otherwise. Also, it is absolutely compulsory for all students to attend classes during the first week of each semester, except for genuine medical reasons. When medical problems arise, the student is advised to inform the mentor and the professors concerned if he/she is missing classes. Professors might require medical certificates issued or authenticated by the IITB Hospital or other supporting documents in such cases.

Students who enter this institute every year are some of the best brains in the country. Due to the competitive environment here, we have often experienced cases where students, Who have until now always topped their class, find it difficult to attain grades equal to their expectations.. This has often led to one of two extremes: some students face excessive parental pressure, while others simply adopt an indifferent attitude which further reduces their academic performance. We hope that you would encourage your ward to put his/her best foot forward - treat the best effort from his/her side as the objective, rather than the results.


Hostel Life

At this institute, we believe in the overall development of our students. General lifestyle of students includes a lot of Extra-Curriculars activities in fields of sports, cultural and technical activities, at intra-hostel, inter-hostel and inter-college events. The environment here is very conducive to growth and our institute has some of the best facilities across India. So, we encourage students to take up whatever interests them, and we request you to support them in their choices. There is enough time in a normal IIT student’s day to fit in both academics and Extra-Curriculars activities without much stress. But, at the same time, it is advised that care must be taken to ensure proper time management such that academics are not neglected because of such activities. Hostels form an integral part of every IIT students’ life. The hostels are well equipped with necessary infrastructure and mess facilities. First year students stay in double-sharing hostel rooms with their batchmates. The transition of your ward, from your loving and caring hands to a completely new and competitive environment of IIT, could occasionally cause adjustment problems in the initial period of their stay. Many students find it difficult getting used to a roommate and hostel life for the first time. Sometimes, cultural, social and language differences further delay the settling in process. As mentors, we help the freshmen have a smooth transition so that this settling in process is as short as possible and your wards feel comfortable in this new setting quickly.


Financial Help

In case you are worried about how expensive it is going to be to put your son/daughter through college, don’t be. Help is always given at IITB to those who need it, whether that be academic, financial or any other kind. Scholarships in the form of Merit cum Means and Free Messing are provided to the eligible students that discount the tuition fees and the mess fees respectively. You can find more information about these in the leaflet on scholarships that you will receive shortly or ask your ward’s mentor.


Some important issues


Ragging in any form is strictly banned in the campus. The student should report any such untoward incident to his/her mentor immediately. We assure you that it will be dealt with confidentiality and with the highest priority. We believe that you will be reassured by the steps that have been taken by the institute to prevent ragging. Interaction of the freshmen with seniors (other than the appointed mentors) is heavily curtailed during their first month, so they get time to adjust. Strict penalties are very much in place, and mentors are always available to resolve any situations promptly. Rest assured, ragging has vanished from the IIT-Bombay campus.


However, it is expected that the freshmen develop a healthy rapport with seniors as they themselves are amongst the brightest in the country and excel at various activities. In fact, a healthy senior junior interaction has been the hallmark of this institute and we would like to maintain that. Our purpose of sharing the above mentioned problems with you is to make you aware of them. As parents, you need not be alarmed, but mental preparation and precautionary measures would definitely help.

In case you have doubts or you need to know more about any aspect of IITB, please comment below using your facebook account and we will be happy to answer your questions. We hope that this information gives you a fair idea about the life of your ward over the next few years. This institute offers a wide range of opportunities for all who wish to learn in the various spheres of life and we hope that he/she has a productive and memorable time in the institute.

Best wishes,

Student Mentor Program

Appendix

Calculation of SPI and CPI:


Suppose in a given semester a student has taken four courses having credits C1, C2, C3 and C4 and grade points in those courses are G1, G2, G3 and G4 respectively. Then,

SPI = (C1 x G1 + C2 x G2 + C3 x G3 + C4 x G4) / (C1 + C2 + C3 + C4) CPI = (SPI1 x Credits in semester1 + SPI2 x Credits in semester2 + ...) / (Total credits)

For example, if in a given semester a student has taken four courses having credits 6, 6, 8, and 6 and grade points in those courses are 10, 9, 8, 6 respectively. Then, SPI = (6 x 10 + 6 x 9 + 8 x 8 + 8 x 6) / (6 + 6 + 8 + 6) = 7.62

If the student has an SPI of 7.62 in the 1st semester worth (say) 32 credits and 8.2 in the next semester worth 36 credits, CPI (at the end of 2nd semester) = (7.62 x 32 + 8.2 x 36) / (32 + 36) = 7.93

Do note that all semesters have more or less equal credit weightage, so it is important to do well throughout, and not just in final exams, in order to maintain a good CPI.

Grading:


The system of grading here, in most courses, is relative. The highest grade (worth 10 points) is set according to the highest score obtained in the class, and proportionately, grades are allotted to all students. Grading, in integral values out of 10 is done based on the student’s performance throughout the semester and goes from 10 to 4 (AA-10, AB-9, BB-8, BC-7, CC-6, CD-5, DD-4),.

Detailed rules can be found in the ‘Rules and Regulations’ booklet which you will receive subsequently. Parents and students are requested to go through and understand it carefully.

अभिभावक को पत्र

इंस्टीट्यूट छात्र मंथन कार्यक्रम (आईएसएमपी )

इस संसथान में सभी प्रथम वर्ष के छात्रों के परामर्शदाता के रूप में सम्मानीय और वरिष्ठ चौथे / पाँचवे वर्ष में पढ़ रहे छात्र है | । इन सलाहकारों ने एक साथ छात्र परामर्शदाता कार्यक्रम का गठन किया है जिसका उद्देश्य प्रथम वर्ष के छात्रों को मार्गदर्शन और सहायता प्रदान करना है। यह मेंटर पहले साल के छात्रों का घर से कॉलेज के एक कष्टरहित संक्रमण बनाने में और अपने रास्ते में बाधाओं को दूर करने में मदद करते हैं। जब आप अभिविन्यास के लिए परिसर में आते हैं तो आपको मेंटर्स से मिलना उचित होगा। यदि आप सेमेस्टर के दौरान मेंटर्स के साथ संपर्क में रहें तो यह फायदेमंद होगा। शैक्षणिक संरचना

आईआईटी बॉम्बे में एक ठेठ शैक्षणिक वर्ष दो सेमेस्टर में विभाजित है - शरद ऋतु सेमेस्टर (जुलाई-नवंबर) और वसंत सेमेस्टर (जनवरी-अप्रैल)। आईआईटी मुंबई में पाठ्यक्रम क्रेडिट प्रणाली पर आधारित है। हर कोर्स में प्रति सप्ताह व्याख्यान, ट्यूटोरियल और प्रयोगशाला घंटे की संख्या के आधार पर क्रेडिट आवंटित किया जाता है। क्विज़, असाइनमेंट, मिड सेमेस्टर, एंड-सेमेस्टर परीक्षाओं और प्रयोगशाला सेमेस्टर के दौरान निरंतर मूल्यांकन किया जाता है। प्रत्येक सेमेस्टर के अंत में, छात्र एक एसपीआई (सेमेस्टर परफॉर्मेंस इंडेक्स) प्राप्त करता है, जो उन पाठ्यक्रमों में क्रमशः उन पाठ्यक्रमों के क्रेडिट के साथ क्रमशः प्रत्येक पाठ्यक्रम में ग्रेड की औसत है, जो क्रमशः उन पाठ्यक्रमों के क्रेडिट के साथ होता है। सीपीआई (संचयी प्रदर्शन सूचकांक) सभी एसपीआई के एक भारित औसत (आज तक) कुल क्रेडिट की संख्या पर प्रत्येक सेमेस्टर भारित है।

कक्षाओं में एक स्थिर उपस्थिति बनाए रखने के महत्व को कम नहीं आँका जा सकता है। यह सलाह दी जाती है कि छात्र घर की यात्राएं या अन्यथा के कारण कक्षाएं ना छोड़े। इसके अलावा, सभी छात्रों के लिए प्रत्येक सेमेस्टर के पहले सप्ताह के दौरान कक्षाओं में उपस्थित होना अनिवार्य है, वास्तविक चिकित्सा कारणों को छोड़कर। जब चिकित्सकीय समस्याएं पैदा होती हैं, तो छात्र को सलाह दी जाती है कि वह संरक्षक और प्रोफेसरों को सूचित करे कि क्या वह कक्षाएं में अनुपस्थित है। प्रोफेसरों को ऐसे मामलों में आईआईटीबी अस्पताल या अन्य सहायक दस्तावेजों द्वारा जारी या प्रमाणित मेडिकल प्रमाण पत्रों की आवश्यकता हो सकती है। हर साल इस संस्थान में प्रवेश करने वाले छात्र देश के कुछ बेहतरीन दिमाग वाले होते है । यहां प्रतिस्पर्धी माहौल के कारण, हम अक्सर ऐसे मामलों का अनुभव करते हैं, जहां छात्रों ने हमेशा विद्यालय में अपनी कक्षा में प्रथम स्थान प्राप्त किया था, और यहाँ उन्हें अपनी उम्मीदों से अनुसार ग्रेड प्राप्त करना मुश्किल हो गया। यह अक्सर दो चरम सीमाओं में से एक की तरफ चले जाता है: कुछ छात्र अत्यधिक माता-पिता के दबाव का सामना करते हैं, जबकि अन्य केवल एक उदासीन रवैया अपनाते हैं जो आगे उनके अकादमिक प्रदर्शन को कम करता है। हम आशा करते हैं कि आप अपने वार्ड को अपने सर्वश्रेष्ठ कदम को आगे बढ़ाने के लिए प्रोत्साहित करेंगे - परिणामों के बजाय, उद्देश्य के रूप में अपनी ओर से सर्वोत्तम प्रयास का इलाज करें।



छात्रावास जीवन

इस संस्थान में, हम अपने छात्रों के समग्र विकास में विश्वास करते हैं। विद्यार्थियों की सामान्य जीवन शैली में खेल-कूद, सांस्कृतिक और तकनीकी गतिविधियों के क्षेत्रों में इंट्रा हॉस्टल, इंटर-होस्टेल और इंटर कॉलेज कार्यक्रमों में बहुत से गतिविधियों को शामिल किया गया है। पर्यावरण विकास के लिए बहुत अनुकूल है और हमारे संस्थान में भारत भर में कुछ बेहतरीन सुविधाएं हैं। इसलिए, हम विद्यार्थियों को उन हितों को उठाने के लिए प्रोत्साहित करते हैं जो उन्हें पसंद हैं और हम आपसे अनुरोध करते हैं कि आप उनके विकल्पों में सहायता करें। एक सामान्य आईआईटी छात्र के जीवनशैली में एक दिन में पर्याप्त शिक्षा के साथ साथ पाठ्येतर गतिविधियों के फिट बैठने के लिए पर्याप्त समय होता है। लेकिन, साथ में यह सलाह भी दी जाती है कि उचित समय प्रबंधन सुनिश्चित करने के लिए देखभाल की जानी चाहिए ताकि ऐसी गतिविधियों के कारण शिक्षाविदों की उपेक्षा न हो।

हॉस्टल प्रत्येक आईआईटी छात्रों के जीवन का अभिन्न अंग बनाते हैं। हॉस्टल अच्छी तरह से आवश्यक बुनियादी सुविधाओं और मैस सुविधाओं से लैस हैं | प्रथम वर्ष के छात्र अपने बैचसमेट्स के साथ डबल साझा हॉस्टल कमरे में रहते हैं। आईआईटी के पूरी तरह से नए प्रतिस्पर्धी माहौल में अपने प्रेम और देखभाल वाले हाथों से आपके वार्ड का संक्रमण, कभी-कभी अपने प्रवास के शुरुआती दौर में समायोजन समस्याओं का कारण हो सकता है। कई छात्रों को यह पता चलता है कि पहली बार रूममेट और हॉस्टल जीवन मुश्किल हो रहा है। कभी-कभी, सांस्कृतिक, सामाजिक और भाषा मतभेद अनुकूलित करने की प्रक्रिया में देरी करते हैं। मेंटर्स के रूप में, हम नए लोगों को एक कष्टरहित संक्रमण करने में मदद करते हैं ताकि यह निपटारे की प्रक्रिया जितनी कम हो सके उतनी ही कम हो और आपके वार्ड इस नई सेटिंग में आसानी से सहज महसूस करें।



वित्तीय सहायता

अगर आप अपने बेटे / बेटी को कॉलेज में रखने के लिए चिंतित है की वह कितना महंगा हो, तो आप चिंतित न हो। आईआईटीबी में हमेशा उन लोगों को सहायता दी जाती है जिनके लिए इसकी आवश्यकता होती है, चाहे वह शैक्षिक, वित्तीय या किसी अन्य प्रकार का हो। मेरिट कम अर्थ के रूप में छात्रवृत्ति और निशुल्क मेसिंग पात्र छात्रों को प्रदान की जाती है जो ट्यूशन फीस और मेस फीस को क्रमशः छूट देते हैं। आप इन के बारे में अधिक जानकारी छात्रवृत्ति पर दी गई पुस्तिका में देख सकते हैं जो आपको शीघ्र ही मिलेगी या अपने वार्ड के मेंटर से पूछें।



कुछ महत्वपूर्ण मुद्दे


किसी भी रूप में रैगिंग को कैंपस में प्रतिबंधित किया गया है। विद्यार्थी को तुरंत इस तरह के अप्रिय घटना को अपने / उसके मेंटर को रिपोर्ट करना चाहिए। हम आपको आश्वस्त करते हैं कि इसे गोपनीयता और उच्चतम प्राथमिकता के साथ पेश किया जाएगा। हम मानते हैं कि आपको रैगिंग को रोकने के लिए संस्थान द्वारा उठाए गए कदमों से आपको आश्वस्त किया जाएगा। वरिष्ठों (नियुक्त सलाहकारों के अलावा) के साथ नए विद्यार्थियों का इंटरेक्शन पहले महीने के दौरान बंद हो गया है, इसलिए उन्हें समायोजित करने का समय मिलता है। सख्त दंड बहुत अधिक हैं, और मेंटर हमेशा किसी भी स्थिति को तुरंत हल करने के लिए उपलब्ध हैं। आश्वस्त रहें, आईआईटी-बॉम्बे परिसर में रैगिंग गायब हो गई है।

हालांकि, उम्मीद की जाती है कि नए विद्यार्थी वरिष्ठ विद्यार्थियों के साथ स्वस्थ तालमेल विकसित करेंगे क्योंकि वे खुद देश में प्रतिभाशाली और विभिन्न गतिविधियों में उत्कृष्टता रखते हैं। वास्तव में, एक स्वस्थ सीनियर जूनियर इंटरैक्शन इस संस्थान की पहचान है और हम उसे बनाए रखना चाहते हैं। आपके साथ उपर्युक्त समस्याओं को साझा करने का हमारा उद्देश्य आपको उन्हें अवगत करना है। माता-पिता के रूप में, आपको चिंता की जरूरत नहीं है, लेकिन मानसिक तैयारी और एहतियाती उपाय निश्चित रूप से मदद करेंगे।

अगर आपको संदेह है या आपको आईआईटीबी के किसी भी पहलू के बारे में अधिक जानने की आवश्यकता है, तो कृपया अपने फेसबुक अकाउंट का इस्तेमाल करके नीचे टिप्पणी करें और हम आपके सवालों के जवाब देने में प्रसन्न होंगे। हमें उम्मीद है कि यह जानकारी आपको अगले कुछ वर्षों में अपने वार्ड के जीवन के बारे में एक उचित विचार देती है। यह संस्थान सभी के लिए अवसरों की एक विस्तृत श्रृंखला प्रदान करती है जो जीवन के विभिन्न क्षेत्रों में सीखना चाहते हैं और हमें उम्मीद है कि संस्थान में उन्हें एक उत्पादक और यादगार समय होगा।

अनुबंध

एसपीआई और सीपीआई की गणना:


मान लीजिए कि किसी दिए गए सेमेस्टर में एक छात्र ने सी 1, सी 2, सी 3 और सी 4 के क्रेडिट वाले चार कोर्स किए हैं और उन पाठ्यक्रमों में ग्रेड पॉइंट्स क्रमशः जी 1, जी 2, जी 3 और जी 4 हैं। फिर,

SPI = (सी 1 * जी 1 + सी 2 * जी 2 + सी 3 * जी 3 + सी 4 * जी 4) / (सी 1 + सी 2 + सी 3 + सी 4) सीपीआई = (एसपीआई 1 * सेमेस्टर 1 में क्रेडिट + एसपीआई 2 * सेमेस्टर 2 में क्रेडिट + ...) / (कुल क्रेडिट)

उदाहरण के लिए, यदि किसी दिए गए सेमेस्टर में एक छात्र ने 6, 6, 8 और 6 के क्रेडिट वाले चार कोर्स किए हैं और उन पाठ्यक्रमों में ग्रेड अंक क्रमशः 10, 9, 8, 6 हैं। फिर, SPI = (6 x 10 + 6 x 9 + 8 x 8 + 8 x 6) / (6 + 6 + 8 + 6) = 7.62

यदि छात्र के पास 1 सेमेस्टर में 7.62 एसपीआई, 32 क्रेडिट है और 8.2 क्रेडिट के अगले सेमेस्टर में 36 क्रेडिट, सीपीआई (दूसरे सेमेस्टर के अंत में) = (7.62 x 32 + 8.2 x 36) / (32 + 36) = 7.93

ध्यान रखें कि सभी सेमेस्टर के पास कम या ज्यादा बराबर क्रेडिट भार है, इसलिए एक अच्छा सीपीआई बनाए रखने के लिए केवल अंतिम परीक्षाओं में ही नहीं बल्कि पूरी तरह से अच्छा करना महत्वपूर्ण है।

ग्रेडिंग:


यहां ग्रेडिंग की व्यवस्था, ज्यादातर पाठ्यक्रमों में, रिश्तेदार है। उच्चतम ग्रेड (10 अंक के बराबर) कक्षा में प्राप्त उच्चतम स्कोर के अनुसार निर्धारित किया जाता है, और आनुपातिक रूप से, ग्रेड सभी छात्रों को आवंटित किए जाते हैं। ग्रेडिंग, 10 में से अभिन्न मूल्यों में पूरे सत्र में छात्र के प्रदर्शन के आधार पर किया जाता है और 10 से 4 में फैला होता है (एए -10, एबी-9, बीबी -8, बीसी -7, सीसी -6, सीडी -5, डीडी -4).

विस्तृत नियम 'नियम और विनियम' पुस्तिका में पाए जा सकते हैं जो आपको बाद में प्राप्त होगा। माता-पिता और छात्रों से अनुरोध किया जाता है कि वे इसे ध्यान से समझें।
