Unfortunately, no. It is not the end of the world however. I was a part of the odd batch too and I really feel it worked in my favor. I was a part of a smaller group of students which help me familiarize myself and develop a great rapport with the professors(some even became my friends). You get noticed easily if you perform well(because they think most odd batch students are dumb?). Learning in classes became easier so I had to put little effort before exams. I got time to play university level sports, take part in literary and cultural events, be a part of the student council and, so many more things. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that one should try and be in the odd batch(haha) but use this opportunity to stand out in a positive light. Also, your college/university might have a different policy than mine and they might consider odd batch students for academic accolades, so be sure. All the best to you!
