Dear All,
I have worked hard to prepare myself for the exam. I plan to take up the exam in the second week of October. My major concerns are....
1) Will the course change to include anything else than what it has today?
2) When should I fix up the date to give the exam? Would it be advisable to wait till 1st of October?
3) Will Sun declare the date of Change much early and make the changes with effect from a date which does not result in confusion and disaster at the exams?
Please ajith or anyone who has some solid info reply to this message.
