paper mess


well into the semester exams and nearing the end of them all.

the VTU has recently been in the news a lot!! some what a celebrity status these exams have got now. a series of events happened which were responsible were 1) students in Bangalore reporting that the NA(network analysis) paper was impossible.. err..tough. Read more. the funniest thing is that i answered that same paper and hardly anyone in college found it that tough. i actually think i did better in it than in EC( where ive screwed up minimum 30 marks for sure) and then it get reported in the news the next day with parents too pleading that let the correction be lenient. weird. well only time will tell my marks 🙂

Then there were the two “paper leaks”-seventh semester’s “Heat and Mass Transfer” question paper on Thursday, and “Mechanical Vibrations” paper for sixth semester (repeaters) on Friday. Sadly now their exams have been postponed further up to 16th or 18th. so fewer holidays.

Latest news is that ” fresh papers are been printed for all the remaining exams.”

Thats the mess. hopefully the “new” papers are easy ones 🙂 *fingers crossed* Right now i Got to Study “Field theory” on 8th, which is considered a deadly exam with a real bad track record. and then Holidays!!!

  1. A third semester student from JSS Institute of Technology, Bangalore had appeared for “Network Analysis”, a paper in Electronics and Communication. “I had prepared for the exams including solving previous year question paper. But today’s (Thursday) paper was extremely difficult. The questions was based more on the problems than theory,” the student said and added that evaluators should be liberal while evaluating the answer scripts.
    It’s not only the students but parents are also worried.

    “My daughter has worked hard throughout the year. She is very upset as she could not fare well in this paper. My concern is that there are two more exams left and if she keeps worrying about the performance in this paper then she will won’t be able to prepare for other papers,” the parent added.
