    Nova T6 Question

    [/Normal Reality]
    [Timetabler Reality]
    I've almost finished scheduling next year's timetable just as I'm crowbaring the last few clusters in, a thought has occured to me:

    When using automatic scheduling, when trying to get the same block in repeatedly, does T6 start from the same point every time or is it random? it'd be nice to know as it would change my scheduling policy slightly if it was randomised.

    If I remember rightly (but could be completely wrong) the autoscheduling always starts with a random seed, so everytime you run it, it's likely to come up with a different solution (and so, in some circumstances could fail to timetable things successfully, due to it's random starting point)

    Yeah, I remember being told a while ago (I'm not sure by who) that it's completely random as well.

    No offence taken! It's a small school 11-16, NOR 370 or so, normally a 3 form entry but next year Yr7 is only 2 You get a whole different set of problems with a school this small - loads of part time staff, limited flexibility within blocks etc. but it's done now - meeting with the Deputy Head on Wednesday to refine a few bits where we can

    If anyone's got any kids going spare, we'll take them - PM me for an application form Just got an "Outstanding" OFSTED, too
