hi,
to begin with we appreciate the opportunity to thank you for viewing the solutions on www.jeecarnot.com and share our happiness over being the fastest in the country to upload the solutions by 11:30 p.m.,13th april.we acknowledge the 30 hrs of optimized work of part of carnot team of 30 iitians composed of c.s. elec junta.we also could not help the enthoo of a.i.r. 1 jee 2007 achin bansal:) and he was one of the 30 of carnot team.as some of you might be knowing,that we have recently made www.jeecarnot.com open to all from restricted access ,and we did not expect such a rush without a single newspaper ad or seminar. once we have tested all the softwares of trajecory up to our benchmraks let us present you our automated rank projection ,which ll start working from 10:00 a.m. 15th april.
sincere regards
carnot team.
