Exams give way to Pongal

The Anna University Terminal Examinations finally came to an end on Sunday, 13 January 2008. The final examination was "Basics of Civil and Mechanical Engineering" incidentally came with a tampered question paper format and a few questions seemed out of the blue. However the students exuded confidence and claimed that they had done well. The students surprisingly did not get needlessly perturbed by the consequences of the examinations and immediately rubbed into the festive mood. The normal glued looks and heated exchanges on the questions and answers were replaced by warm wishes of Happy Pongal. They seemed to be in a great hurry to wish one and all and immediately pack their bags for a trip to home.
Overall the students were pleased with the examinations. They rated Engineering Mathematics as the toughest of the papers and Technical English the best one. They were pretty happy with the remaining four theory papers as well.
The college has declared Pongal Holidays from 14 January 2008 to 20 January 2008 and will re-open on Monday, 21 January 2008 for the second semester. The planning has been more meticulous for the second semester and neccessary arrangements were made in advance. On this occassion, SNS College of Engineering greets one and all to have a happy time during the harvest festival of Pongal. Happy Pongal
