As per the institute rules, students who have a CGPA less than 5 will not be eligible for a degree. For such students, the administration is duty-bound to take necessary steps and help them in any form to graduate.
At the same time, both the students and the administration do agree that no direct correlation between participation in sports and poor academics can be established. Statistics collected by the student reps corroborate this fact, by showing that there is more or less no considerable difference in the GPAs of affected students averaged over the odd and even semesters.
This, according to the student reps, is a clear indicator that Inter-IIT practice sessions taking place in the odd semesters are not the reason behind their poor academic performance.
Also, the practice sessions are not compulsory and the system permits the students to attend them as per their convenience and other commitments. Moreover, faculty do recognize the integral role that sports play in the holistic development of the students by including NSO as one of the compulsory courses in the curriculum.
