Regardless of Ketu's rashi, when Ketuva occupies bhava-5 one may provide a veneer of alertness but the intellectual mechanism is disoriented. Ketu-5 in 3rd-from-3rd tends to make disconnected, even gibberish, pronouncements. The grammar of the message itself and the words used may be articulate depending on the characteristics of Budha. However, the issues with Ketu-5 is usually that whether the style of the pronouncement is gracious or rustic, the meaning may be garbled and unclear due to the disconnection between the words and their denotation.
The message may be linguistically smoothed by Budha's communicative abilities. However, Ketu is not a respecter of forms and Ketu acknowledges no consequences. Ketu recognizes no fixed reality. Thus truth-value is irrelevant to Ketu-5.
Bhava-5 represents games. From Ketu's perspective, all declarations and announcements are events which require a clever performance (5) but the performance is artistic, fun, gaming, or speculative and it has no consequences.

The mahadasha of Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-11 and the bhukti ub-periods of Rahu during mahadasha of graha which have a good angular relationship to Rahu can bring extraordinary gains of social and material achievement . If conscientiously managed by a mature and morally circumspect person, these gains may be meritorious because they can be parlayed into employment opportunities for outcast, foreigners, and other lower or "smoky" persons (those trapped behind veils of desire).

Das/ Behari : commentary upon Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-11
"Rahu is powerful to provide material prosperity when it is in the 11th house.
However, you may lack modesty.
You can control your desires and activities when you want to.
You are very wise, though you don't speak much, preferring definite results before spending speaking energy.
You live away from your birth land, and mix well with foreigners and drifters.
If other favorable conditions are present, this is very good for becoming an eminent philosopher , expounding your thoughts effectively.
