So exams are done and I assume everyone is relaxing on their winter break (Or already studying ahead for semester 2). However, as you might begin to notice from Facebook status updates people are mentioning that results are starting to trickle through.
So I’d thought I’d write about the what goes on during the period when results come out.
So the usual updates on Facebook and Twitter will be along the lines of:
“OMG I CANT BELIEVE I PASSED <SUBJECT NAME>” (This is a typical status update for Worrying Whingers)
“<SUBJECT NAME> RESULTS ARE OUT!”
“PASSED ALL MY SUBJECTS! :)”
It’s a weird system, from memory it was semester 1 2010 when the university introduced the whole “Study plan” on the portal. So basically, results sporadically appear usually before the final release date. Spare a thought for all the students from pre-2010 who had to wait out until the official date (Or the day before) to see all their results at once.
A lot of students are going to go around asking everyone about results and how they went. This is when The Career Kid will just disappear or just give a very generic response like “I did well” or “Not bad”, or be super busy bolstering their resume ahead of applying for summer internships. Also, Have fun trying to reach FOBs, as they will probably be back in their home countries until semester 2 starts. The level of difficulty in reaching Private School kids will be similar, as they will probably be somewhere overseas, perhaps enjoying the European summer.
