Completely agree there. Even I didnt protest when IIT K released the instructions explaining it. Because lets be frank, as science students, we are debating between 7 and 7.0 and 7.00, which is ridiculous. But I know my Mom was angry that others were getting marks as well(naturally). I just cant argue why someone who wrote 7 and not 7.00 shouldnt get marks.
IIT K was in a tough situation(which they put themselves in) and I think they made the best decision.
Also, this is just a shit timing for all this, I hope nothing changes.
