Yesterday was a very hectic yet very well spent – type of a day.
What did I do ?
1. Java Exam :
I had my Java programming paper, which had made me extremely nervous (I have no idea why) and I was not at all looking forward to writing the paper. The exam wasn’t as bad as I thought but it wasn’t a perfect one either. I couldn’t write a code for a client server program which was for 10 marks 🙁 because I was running out of time and I just couldn’t code it. But overall, I think I’ll get an average score. On the bright side, this was my second last paper and as the next one is on Tuesday, I have got some relaxing time now!
2. Collecting the Result.
Two weeks before my exams began, we received the mark sheet of the 1st semester exam (how early, I know!). Now because I didn’t give one exam of that semester as I had Gone for ACM ICPC that one paper’s grade was marked as a FF (failed) grade in my result. The examination committee didn’t say when I would get my re-exam result and I thought I would again inquire about it on the day I would come for my first paper. On 21st April, on day of first paper I found out that the re-exam result collection dates had been put up as 16th and 17th of April! On top of that when I went to the exam section that day, the people there told me that the lady who is in charge of the MCA dept is on a leave for a week! This had got me super worried but I couldn’t do anything about it. Yesterday because I didn’t have to hurry home and start studying, I again went to check the status of the result. I got shocked that the lady told me that it was my fault I didn’t come to inquire before yesterday. I know I was wrong for not going on the dates specified, but if she was on leave, how was I supposed to keep inquiring?
Eventually she gave me my result and I was particularly assumed by the fact that, my friend (partner at ICPC) and I may have been the only students who gave a re-exam and came out to be the 2nd and 3rd toppers, resp., of the dept 😛
3. The Movie – The Avengers : The Age of Ultron
I finally went to watch The Avengers. I had been wanting to watch it ever since I saw it’s trailer but because of the exams I couldn’t go in the week the movie released. Yesterday I got the perfect time to watch it and I was totally worth the wait. On top of that, the auditorium was 99% full of school and college going students which made the whole movie watching part even more lively and fun. The reactions from the crowd always brightens up the spirits of a patron in a movie theater, I feel!
I recommend this movie for everyone, even if you haven’t seen the first Avengers movie!
All in all this was a great day!
