anna university sucks

Anna university sucks for sure.Students were totally taken unawares when Anna university suddenly sent out a message personally, i guess(because there was no intimation beforehand in the form of any circulars or notice)to every college asking them to not allow students use their Casio fx-991ES and Casio fx-991MS calculators .This was because these calculators were programmable it seems.WTF,these models of calculators were being used by students right from their entry to college.In fact,the college themselves bought the fx-991MS calculators to their students in concessional rates.WTF was the Anna university doing all these years .Totally senseless is the idea of prohibiting the use of these calcis on the pretext that they are programmable.do they have a 5 GB memory to store all answers are Wat???you can store just 4 sets of numbers.Let me know if there is a way of coding these numbers to indicate any full answer for a question.WTF was Anna univ thinking .and YTF they had no brains to inform beforehand about the prohibition of these calci.

The news that these calcis were not allowed for xams was delivered as a surprise package to students of then 2nd year 3rd sem students on the day of their maths exam i guess. what would they have done without using their calcis.The news then spread to all students and then there was this whole dilemma amongst third year students as to "whether we would be allowed to use the calci","if not,which other model to use".......Then there was this news that there is a model 500 series from casio which could be used...many students went on buy this model overnight...the shop owners knowing the demand for the product started to raise their price...

As suspected, students of third year were also not allowed to use their calcis....for those people who were firm in their belief that they would be allowed to use those models ,it was a d day....but ,invigilators in the room were kind enough to circulate the calcis around for those who did not have the allowed models....but for exams like DSP and TLW everyone needed their calci for almost the entire exam.....so,those who did not have their models were fkd up again...

It is true from Anna univ's point of view that "they had mentioned in hall ticket's rule 15 that students may not use programmable calculators"
but my question is,"what the fk were you doing all these years allowing us to use it" ,"y the fk u did not come up with a notice beforehand about prohibition of these models"

Also i came to notice one thing.....In the INSTRUCTIONS TO CANDIDATE page that's behind the hall tic of every student rule 9 says that students shall use only BLUE OR BLACK ink for answering their answer sheets....but in the answer booklet provided to students ,it is said that "EVEN BLUE BLACK INK " is allowed.....
Are you Anna univ guys nuts???Where you drunk or drugged while printing the rules???
do u have a thing called sense???
man , i get pissed off so much with these guys....

Yep !! so very true .. We tend to expect AU to maintain a certain standard. After all they claim to be so tech savvy( with their EDUSAT and other stuff).

The present VC of AU is behind most of the crappy rules they introduce. I still remember the way he spoke in our college Annual day, his was the speech that took me closest to experiencing a dictator. He was so intent on forcing his views on us. He even went on to say stuff like, mobiles shouldn't be given to girls lest they start falling in love, and get wasted in life. Now, that went completely over my head, whats his point really ?

So much so, that there is a Orkut community for Vishwa haters .. The community has topics discussing his fcuked up rules and even has some topics on ways to kill him.

" The Casio FX 991 series is a NON-PROGRAMMABLE and non-graphic, but loaded with all the functions required for academic purposes making it a popular choice for students writing school and college exams." [includes both ES and MS calculators]

In the "INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CONDUCT OF EXAMINATION" published by Anna University Chennai, it is clearly printed in Rule 13.2:...A candidate is permitted to use geometric tools, non-programmable calculators....etc
Casio fx991-Ms is a non-programmable calculator. Only a person who does not know anything about programing will declare it as a programmable calculator.
