Basically an intro to this system :
  1. Anybody with valid ldap login@IITB can Ask queries (preferable related to Honors and Minors) using this system.
  2. You can use html tags to format your text if it is long enough and cannot be fit into one paragraph(like you can use br tags( br in angular brackets) for breaks)
  3. The queries will be answered ASAP by GSAA and his team.
  4. At any point of time, one can ask only one unanswered query which gets updated on resubmission of data. So if you eed to add something then include the previous query as well
  5. We shall not display the name/ldap username of the person asking the query(although we have it stored in our database) ... but if you want you can write your name in the query itself.
  6. Last but not the least : please report any comments/suggestions/bugs in the system to rohit.singh@iitb.ac.in

11. When are the details for minors going to come on the net??? Will we be able to register for the courses from outside the institute???

16. Where and when are we supposed to fill the choices for minors. The last date is given as 5th July and you haven't sent a mail regarding which site do we register on.does a bklog in NSO (non credit course) disallow me frm taking a minor?my cpi is 8.8
17. how do we register for a minor? is it done at the time of major course registeration?
18. In taking honours too selection is made on the basis of cpi or it can be alloted to students with good academic standing.And around how many seats are available in honours( for example in doing CSE honours)
19. can u give me the link of the webpage where i can register for minors .
20. when can we register for honors . if later then can we cancel the minors which we already took .
21. Are the courses offered this semester on an even-odd semester basis or will they be offered in even sems too? This is because I want to do more than one of the current courses offered and thus would like to know which of these are not possible in the next sem. ( I meet the prerequisite requirements )
22. My CPI is 7.2 with no backlog. Can I have both minor and hons course?
23. Can we guarrenty that all honor courses are run in a slot unused by other courses like we have slot5 alloted for minor courses? also on which basis should we choose first honor course if we dont have much knowledge of our department?
24. Is it possible to know the slots in which this years elec and CS minor courses are running? Because apparently there are two or more courses running from both the departments and as has been mentioned in the answers to the queries, one can undertake 2 minors. So is it possible to do the same for this sem? Moreover, can we take a poll of all the students who are interested in doing two minors? Because the courses will be run in different slots only if enough people are interested(as mentioned in the answers), so a poll seems inevitable.
25. The credits for the minor course in management this sem are mentioned as 4 whereas it is supposed to be a 6 credit course according to the information available on Prof. Biswas's Homepage. http://www.cse.iitb.ac.in/~sb/minor.htm. Kindly verify the above
26. hi, I am now a 3rd yr student. on prof. biswas's page regarding minor courses offered(http://www.cse.iitb.ac.in/~sb/minor.htm) , in the computer science list, it mentions that only CS 213(data structures) as a pre requisite to all other courses including computer networks. Which is why I opted for a CS minor in the 2nd sem of the 2nd yr.But now your list shows that both discrete structures and data structures are pre requisites for further courses.. Can you please clear the discrepancy? Also, does it mean that I have to clear discrete structures before i can opt for compuer networks?
27. What are the dates of course registration for the autumn semester?
28. Is there an Honours course in the Chemical department in the 3rd semester? According to the choices made available on the registration page, there are two courses that can be done as part of the Honours; however, both these courses are also part of the major course.
29. I have registered for minor in BM 603. But I want to drop it now .I have already taken permission from the instructor.What else do I need to do? Will it come in my gradesheet as a dropped course or FR ? If it comes,then is there any way to out,so that it is not mentioned in my gradesheet.

144. A course is presently not listed as a minor course in the minor-webpage of the department. However when I talked to the Instructor-in-charge, he said that he has talked to the HOD regarding this and there is a high chance that it would get the status of a minor course in due time. So the Instructor told me to register for the course, tag it now as an Additional Learning Course, and later on change the tag to minor course. Is it possible? Also I am doing the usual minor course(which is listed) in this semester too.
