Update: You no longer have to download the whole list to view your result any more. You can check them out online on the DCE website. (Thanks to Tikna for the update)
The DCE / NSIT CEE 2008 results have been put up on the Delhi University website, but they haven’t really taken the care to draw any attention to it. You’ll need to scroll down on that page a bit. Or simply click here to download the result list for DCE / NSIT CEE 2008. It’s a PDF file (approximately 1.04 MB in size – still, a smaller download than viewing the text file on the DU website), so in case you haven’t got a PDF reader handy, you can download the very small and handy Sumatra PDF viewer from this page. Oh, and the file I’ve put up is only for the general category students; others can download their category’s result files from the DU site (link given at the beginning of this paragraph).
The funny thing is, that instead of going the general way – creating a database and then allowing individuals to check their result – they simply took the easy way out and put up a text document containing everyone’s result online. Seems like a text document fresh from sorting from their guys at scanning – haven’t seen PRT files being used for formatted text. A really dumb way to distribute the results too, because if they really want to handle the load of loads of people checking the results the more sensible way would have been using databases. Then again, maybe they don’t have that capability on their host.
Another interesting thing. The official DCE website is apparently maintained by students. I’d have expected the site to be a bit better looking and more updated than THAT – the site has hardly any information about CEE 2008! Surely the sort of people who can make dcetech.com can make a better ‘official’ site. Maybe it’s not the same people.
