For All Students - Registrations Exceeding the Maximum Limit ( as on 02 Sept 1200 hrs)

  1. Please note that the new IoBM-Smartz system logic worked in a manner that allowed enrolling of many more students than what could be handled by a single teacher. Hence the sections with excess registration were broken into several parallel sections. The new system interpreted the maximum limit of 20 on a per program basis in each section. As there are several MBA programs such as MBA for BBA/BSJH, MBA morning for 16yr students, MBA evening for 16 yr students, MBA weekend for 16 yr students, MBA for 14yr students morning, MBA 14 yr students for evening and MBA for 14 yr students for weekends, and several more. This logic allowed the number of students per section to increase over 20 in several cases and in some cases to over 60 and even over 100. We later had to modify the logic. Unfortunately, your section was one of those with too many students that could be handled by a single teacher. As a teacher can only handle at most five projects or around 20 students, therefore all the excess students were sent to new created sections.
  2. Please note that students were warned on the website FAQ page a week ago to themselves drop the registration in sections with excess registration and select alternate sections of their choice, failing which we had to remove the students in LIFO manner.
  3. A new teacher is being assigned to a section created at exactly the same day-time slot so as not to inconvenience your schedule.
    If you like further information, please feel free to meet HoD or Dean for further information.
