This month witnessed another major academic phenomenon that kept the midnight oil burning – T2. The continuous assessment criteria followed by the NITC ignited the hopes of aspiring engineers to give them another shot to better their chances of obtaining a higher GPA. For those minions who flunked T1, this was another chance at their doorstep to improve upon their failures, on the other, it was a cakewalk for ‘Bujis’ (surprise, surprise). T2 was also accompanied by holidays, which were disturbed by frequent power cuts that left laptops and phones craving for some ‘charge’ (because clearly phones need charge when students sit down to study). This power crisis saw students marching towards the study room, lecture halls and the senior hostels to beat the pre-retreating monsoon heat. All in all T2 marks the beginning of the most awaited week in the monsoon semester – The Tathva week, which promises a high time for the NITians.
