The Great Mad-ras University Results Saga

Guys i am back with another installment of the Mad-ras university leelais. You may ask what is so great about MU results. Yeah it's great with the precision they keep up in announcing the results. They are so!! on time they always announce a date and deliver the results exactly a month after that date. Can it get any greater than this. I was disappointed with their punctuality last time the one month tripled i got the results weeks before my next semester.

Formula for calculating result date:

Result date =1000 * (R.D+ 31 days or one month which ever is less) /1ooo

R.D = first rumoured date.

(BTW the mutiplied by 1000 and divide by 1000 is just a gimmick to make it more complicated)

Talking about the results of the semester i wrote this May they have not delivered yet, obviously considering MU standards. The other day i had an argument with one of my professors about this. Not like i do this once in a blue moon, i do this often. My professor was talking about discontinuing one college and joining a new college. Would any soul do that is a different question altogether, with the enjoyment we have in our college. He was saying that the student should have cleared all the subject without arrears in the previous 2 years. That's where the problem started and i willingly pissed him off.


Prof: MU is blah blah blah blah...........( same thing amigos)

Me: Sir MU announces results only in Aug or Sept how can u know whether he has no arrears.

Prof: What are you talking they are punctual?

Me: ( giggling) sir u remember last sem when they announced results weeks before exam.

Prof: ( in a defensive tone) last time was an exception it was because of computer valuation, mistake by the contractors they were lazy, results had to be processed once again. ( yeah it was it tripled didn't it)

Me: I learnt that professionals should not complain ( with an innocent face)

Prof: ( changing topic) This time the results are ready corrections are over will arrive on july 2nd week.

Me: (With a sheepish smile) ok sir.

Prof: hopefully( with stress) we will get the results.( trying to escape)

Me: (giggling to myself) ok sir.


On July 1st week the prof returns........

Prof: Your semester results may be delayed because internal marks have not been added it's because of 1st years. You will get the results on July 15.

Me to my frnd : oh oh seems like we could get results only after September hehehehehehehe. if we go by MU norms not our prof words. July 15. 1 month from that we would get it on Jai hind day on Aug 15 lets see.


On July 17th prof returns............

prof: valuations is over intimation by the college is needed to publish the result. U will definitely oops hopefully get the result on 20th July.

Me: I think our prof has some tie up with MU regarding MU(tual) admiration society hehehehe.


On July 24th prof returns...............

Prof: There has been some problems in feeding the results to the server, everything else is completed. results will be published.

Me: When will they ever learn, next time i hope the reason is not " the dog which staying next to the MU gave birth to 5 cute puppies so we don't want them to be disturbed, so we are delaying the results" OMG

Such is the speed at which MU announces results. People give umpteen reasons, a few are



  1. Many students write exams. 
  2. Many courses. 
  3. Strike by tea workers. 
  4. Computer valuation takes time.( then y use it) 
  5. Contracted to outsider, they are not doing well. 
  6. Delay of notification by colleges



I can answer this professionals cant complain this way. MU is like our govt slower than a snail at implementing concrete decisions, cheetah pace at giving excuses. Why does the university norms say 45 days from the exam, results will be published.

whether the results will be announced on X date which is yet to be confirmed or on jai hind day as per my calculations, my fate will be the same and same will be the saga for future sufferers who will fall into this deep pit, which are like the holes dug by corporation always open to fools who step into it. May be the corporation is planing some water bodies instead of subways in Saidapet and Meenambakkam. See for yourself if u travel by train.

i will leave you with a dig at Chennai corporation.

Rainy season

Boy: Father what is this? (pointing at the hole dug in saidapet during )

Father: It's the subway under construction.

Boy: I thought it is a pond.

Summer Season:

Boy: Father what is this, it looks different from the last time

Father: Same, its the subway under construction.

Boy: I thought it was a junk yard full of rubbish.

Seasons passed one after another.............

Little boy 2: Anna ( bro) what is it? ( pointing at subway)

Boy now a Guy: ( what shall i say) Hmmm its a pond in a rainy season and a junkyard in summer, you can answer the same to others don't believe if they say its a subway under construction.

Little Boy 2: ok Anna.

Venky,

Glad you prompted me this. It was hillarious to read.

September is the new July...

June is the new January ... :P Indeed, this applies not just to MU (c'mon Venky let's call it Madras University, it is not some stellar name that deserves to be abbreviated. lolz) but also to government departments around the country.

A bill taken up for discussion in the parliament in the winter session will hardly move till the winter session where the government will be on the verge of losing majority. I know I am carrying this a little too much yea... but...

Subways being ponds during monsoons and dumping yards in summer???!! Extremely true. rotflest but unfortunate.

Good one :) :)

Hey just joining, glad to be here! I'm Lucy and I'm inspired by life, I'm a fan of running and being healthful :)

I've been involved in some other forums and have identified this destination to have considerably better articles, so it helps make sense to ultimately publish!

PS, how do I make myself have a cool title like some people here have?

Hey just becoming a member, glad to be in! I'm glad to be here last but not least, heading to post due to the fact I've been reading a very long time.

I've been concerned in some other forums and have identified this site to have substantially much better written content, so it can make sense to eventually submit!
