Remarks -

You have to start your college life in the first year itself. What I mean is you have to get a batch of good friends, have to participate in different clubs according to your interest, and there is CFI in the institute where you will be doing the mini projects. You have to participate in that also. Then only you will get the panorama of the life at IITM. There is a lingo called Insti Lingo. You better get used to it when you step into IIT Madras
