  • I have completed first year of my stay in IIST and as a matter of fact I am a 9 pointer. Class timings are from 9 am to 2 pm and then we have labs from 2pm to 5pm, so the schedule is pretty hectic.
  • The quality of education is excellent to bearable, some profs are really awesome and some (very few though) don't know shit about the subject.
