7. Rajasthan Technical University amuses people with its results
Rajasthan Technical University, already well known for all sorts of delays in exam conduction and result declaration, came into notice for the controversial B.Tech 3rd semester result. The exams were conducted in Feb 2010 whose results were declared thrice and withdrawn in a short span of time. Even after such a long period for checking and results, it was full of mistakes, such as a person from Udaipur scoring 477 in a subject out of 80 only, thus the scorecard claimed to get the person 113% marks. Few sources inform that another person from Udaipur was passed in a subject, in which he didn’t even appear to write the exam.
