Here's a google earth view of the atf campus.The area is clearly marked in red.India's 1st on beach campus.


So,Finally the IIST merit list has been released,and to the guys and gals who are called for counseling,my heartiest congratulations.You guys must be eager to know about the counselling process and as usual with due respect to my college,the website does not provide the required information :P
Well,then I decided that to update you guys out there[If you can call it updating ,gosh! I am talking as if you people are antivirus programmes that need to be updated :)] The market is flooded with rumours that there will be a interview in the IIST counselling (Which I hope to dispel and please let me know who is spreading them).So lets get some points straight about the counseling procedure.

1)This year the counselling is in Trivandrum(which all of you must know by now surely) unlike the last 2 years when it was held in Bangalore(Now called Bengaluru).The dates have been announced and counselling for the reserved candidates is mostly on the 1st day and for the general candidates,on the next.There will be buses deployed from the city(mostly Thampanoor) to the campus and the details will be given later.

2)At the start of the counselling last year,we were taken to the hotel's auditorium and shown some videos about ISRO and it's initiation,missions etc.Those videos were interesting but I was too tensed about getting my desired branch ,so unfortunately could not enjoy there was a speech by the direstor and a Q&A session where the parents and the students could ask doubts.But mostly ,it was the parents who did the talking because we all were mostly shy or tensed or both :P

3)Then comes the real allocation of seats where you will be called systematically according to your performance in IITJEE and made to exercise your choice.Thats it,No interview or any other mumbo jumbo.The other students in the waiting hall will also be given real time updates on a big screen or on a 40 inch LCD TV.So you see that the thing is quite clear cut, precise and simple too.Now for the better part,While you are waiting,mostly you will be treated to very good tea and snacks(of the best quality available in Trivandrum,as you can see being under Dept of Space has many such

4)So I advise you people out there to get rid of all the tension before the counselling,there is no interview and enjoy the food.


I'll keep posting about the admission and execution of bond later. Anyone is welcome to post their queries here.

PS-In case you did not understand the joke about antivirus updating on the top part of this post,remember that antivirus updating happens to be the favourite pastime of iistians.So keep a few updates handy in your pendrives(avast and avg are prefferable,norton will also do).......lolzzz...just kiddin....
