The TN government has done away with the TNPCEE (amongst rumours about facts like politician owned colleges, lapsed seats and big money in a particular order), so that the cut-off marks will be for 200 – Mathematics/Biology, Physics and Chemistry normalized to 100, 50 and 50 marks respectively (my sympathies for the CBSE junta). There’s also a complex method to decide the ranking (a method almost as complex as Duckworth-Lewis, involving parameters as level-headed as date-of-births and drawing of lots among others). I’m not even going to get into the ranting part about how this will further dilute the education system. I a)know b)think c)hope d)pray (choose the correct option) that people who read my blog are all sharp, intelligent and sapient, and will know about it themselves.

And so, to tackle/take advantage of this change in the government system, some parents have done a bit of room pottu yosichufying and have come up with something that is so simple in it’s concept and yet is powerful enough to throw the state into yet another controversy – hundreds of students who did their 12th in 2006 but who’d gone down the rankings because of the entrance exam have promptly re-applied this year. Hmmmmm.

In other news, my brother has picked a seat in ECE in SSNCE in the counselling. Apart from CEG’s ECE and CSE, he had the entire range to choose from, but a combination of parents living in Madras, too many school friends opting for colleges in Madras, striking off of the option of hostelling, and ahem, e-learning from this batch (like in laptops and online assignments, jeez) have made him take this up. So anybody out there who has/had any connection – physical, mental, emotional – with SSNCE, drop me a line 😉
