I just f**king ossum (possum)! I was quite dejected, on having my NTU application rejected; really really dejected. However, I did file an appeal with NTU to reconsider my application. They replied back – that applications for the NTU Entrance Exam were chosen on the basis of class 10th marks, as class 12th marks are not available. So my fluke that it was my English marks which caused the problem, was, in fact, correct – because everything other that that was above 95 (although S Sc was 93).
Oh well, I wrote back, requested more – said that the Boards were not a good barometer of my English performance (true) – and today, I got a mail saying my application was been accepted! :D I didn’t get the Delhi center though; will have to go to their Bangalore exam center. Will be quite a dash, to have exams there on 16-17 April, then jet back for VIT on 19th. Hectic. Fun. Another shot at 42 Nanyang Avenue. As Rach put it:
A semi-holiday right in the middle of all the exams
…except that it won’t be. Had deleted all NTU papers etc out of disgust, will need to hunt them all down again. Was actually not thinking about doing much after The 600 Mirrors Project – but now I’ve work my arse off for this.
PS – This post, of all the ones, HAD TO BE the 42th one under the Electric ARC series. Nope, I didn’t bump off a post off my archive to give this one 42. :p
