Admission Headache

Today was the admission for Jadavpur University. I’ve been selected for B.A.(Hons) English. JU has the best English Faculty in India, and out of 3000+ students who gave the entrance test(yes, there’s an entrance test) I managed to qualify. πŸ˜€

So the admissions were to start from 11:00 AM. We decided to go by the 6:00 AM bus to Kolkata. It’s ordinarily. a three hour journey but today was no ordinary day. It’s been raining continuously for the past two-three days. Trains to Kolkata have been cancelled, so buses were fully booked. The 6:00 AM bus came to the stop at 7:00 AM 😯 We all climbed in(heartily abusing the driver and SBSTC) Bus starts. But….. Just after Muchipara it blows a tyre. 😑 the fools had come with a defective tyre. The driver originally wanted to turn the bus back, but all the passengers requested(okay,threatened to beat the crap out of him) that he get it repaired at a shop nearby. It took about an hour. We set out at 8:30 AM. At 10:00 we phoned one of the members of the AFSU helpline. He said not to worry, coz it was the case with a lot of people. We reached Kolkata at 11:40 AM–a full 2Β½ hrs late– reached JU at 12:10 PM. phoned the guy again. He took me to the HOD of english. Got all my docs verified. Then got the fee book, hostel form, and paid the admission fees. I’m now a student of JU. πŸ™‚

Only problem is, Hostel allocation is in September, so couple fo months will have to live as PG. Oh well, to make an omlette you have to break an egg

    Hello, the admission test figure is a little off. About 2,700 students wrote the exam this year. But congratulations nonetheless! πŸ™‚

    Cub, don’t even try to go for the hostel. If you have a good enough PG, stay there. Or change PGs. Hostel e more jaabi.

  13. neelakantankk Says:

    @Teleute, Heh Heh, a bit of exaggeration. πŸ˜› and Thanks. πŸ™‚

    @Sukaloka, I think I’m gonna remain a PG. Reports from seniors is not too encouraging, and the hostels look positively ghastly.

  14. Suki Says:
