In these challenging times of panic and pandemic, the best way to beat the virus blues is to read, study and learn. Though college is closed due to the lock-down, Commits students are as busy as ever, reading up on multiple course material, preparing for their Globcom project, participating in online classes and submitting assignments on time, with more enthusiasm and effort.
Covid-19 has presented us with an opportunity to re-evaluate our course delivery mechanism, and make learning a more convenient, economical and an enriching experience. Beginning from the next academic year (2020-21), online classes will play a major role at Commits, and create better learning opportunities for students, without any loss of content or quality. Needless to say, attendance and participation will be just like on-campus sessions.
In this context freshers may make preparations for their online induction programme and online classes from July, till normalcy is restored in all aspects. The exact dates will be announced later. This has been decided keeping in mind the changing Covid-19 scenario, social distancing challenges, travel, transport and PG accommodation constraints for students.
We wish to assure those selected for the 2020 batch that they will be allowed to pay their first year fees in instalments, keeping in mind the unprecedented situation. Those who wish to apply for bank loans will have to wait for the lock-down to be lifted, and normal work to resume in college/banks.
We are aware that the universities are yet to announce their summer exam schedules, and when the new academic year will begin. Our admissions will be open till August, to allow more students to apply, irrespective of their final semester exam schedule, so that students do not waste an academic year for no fault of theirs.
While most universities and institutes are waking up to the possibility of online classes, entrance exam and interview only now, Commits began this practice three years ago.
And, when the situation returns to normalcy (which we hope and pray will be sooner than we think) what better place to be in than Bangalore, which has been relatively safer than the other cities, especially Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai.
With best wishes, and looking forward to welcoming you all soon.
