My obsession with exam time posts continues…..
About the question paper:
I went to the exam today fully expecting some goof up or the other. Something Anna University is famous for. But guess what ?? I didn’t find any. I was poring over then paper again and again trying to make sure I hadn’t come to the wrong University exam or something. The usual characteristics of Anna University were totally missing in the paper.
Though I must confess that the paper wasn’t easy. It had a mix of problems and theory questions. I didn’t do too well as I wasn’t all that well prepared. If only they asked such papers for exams I prepare and my core subjects. The only thing I felt was slightly off was a problem on Taguchi Loss Function. I’d like people to comment though if you thought something else in the paper was odd.
College guys messing up:
Ok I told someone I won’t be writing about college and education system in general and I stick to that in the way I meant it. (errr,, nevermind). The thing is the exam hall!! We were all made to sit in the auditorium. One huge hall with rows and rows of chairs and tables. I particularly hate the plastic chairs. They are not meant for exams. And the desk we are provided with is so small and keeps rocking!! I also felt very uncomfortable sitting in such a huge hall. I hate crowds. It gave me a sick feeling like I was going to die in a stampede or something. Oh and I almost forgot, they gave us the question paper 10 minutes late but took away the answer sheets on time!! Sadists!! Also finding out where I was supposed to sit was extraordinarily difficult. Not to mention the Invigilators pissing me off by talking to each other inside the exam hall!!
