You are privileged to create a room or a standard in the Edutimer.  
In Each standard you can assign numerous numbers of divisions as per
        the requirement.
 
The divisions like these are generated according to the category of division.  
  Category of Divisions can be either numerical or alphabetical.  
  Room’s classification can be categorized under lab room, class room etc..  
  For an example, if 10th standard contains five divisions, if you choose the category of division as alphabetical we may get classes of 10A, 10B, 10C, 10D, 10E while on table generation. Suppose if you are using numerical category of division you may get classes such as 101,102,103,104,105.

        non duty teacher of that class.
