Slow server makes the MBA students suffer


BE Khedkar, Dean, Management faculty says "The online examination scheduled for morning was conducted smoothly, with around 11,368 students taking the 25 marks objective test. When the same number of students appeared for the same examination in the afternoon, the server started getting slow. After hearing lots of complain from the students and trying really hard to restored the speed of the server, we decided to cancel the examination. Since, lots of students fail to give the examination, the University of Pune has decided to re-conduct the examination after re-storing the speed of the server."
