Student timetable

MIPT organised student timetables the following way:
MIPT classes last for one academic hour each (that is equal to 40 min learning + 5 min break + 40 min of learning). 
1 lesson = 2 academic hours = 2*40 minutes

Class Time 
    1 9:00 – 10:25
    2 10:45 – 12:10
    3 12:20 – 13:45
