  1. !st B.Tech Classes started only on 3rd August. Covering 2 modules in Mathematics before 22nd of this month is a Herculean Task.First internal falls on first week of September. So it is high time to rethink of postponding the internal exam for few days for the welfare of the students.

  2. Sir pls give a leave between two exams subject and topics are very tough we are very difficult to catch up pls sir give leave between two exams for study

  3. Gaps between two consecutive exam will helps a lot.

  4. sir i want mba syllabus. please upload mba 2nd sem ktu syllabus please

  5. sir i kindly request you to provide leave between exams
