The Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) recently announced the results for the final year engineering courses in the early hours of 17th March. The news came as a surprise to many students who had been eagerly waiting for their results. However, what was supposed to be a moment of celebration turned into chaos as the SPPU’s website crashed due to the heavy traffic.
The SPPU had earlier announced that the results for the final year engineering courses would be released on 16th March. However, the students were left waiting as the results were not declared on the said date. It was only in the early hours of 17th March that the results were finally declared, catching many students off guard.
They have also advised the students to check their results after some time, once the traffic on the website has reduced.
This incident highlights the need for universities to ensure that their websites are equipped to handle heavy traffic during such times. With the pandemic forcing many universities to conduct their exams and announce results online, it is essential that they have the infrastructure to support the heavy traffic & lack of workforce.
Moreover, the incident also highlights the stress and anxiety that students go through during the result season. The delay in announcing the results and the subsequent crashing of the website only adds to the stress and anxiety of the students.
In conclusion, while the SPPU’s announcement of the final year engineering results in the early hours of 17th March brought joy to many students, the website crash that followed was a cause for concern. It is essential that universities ensure that their infrastructure is equipped to handle heavy traffic during such times, and they keep the students informed about any delays in announcing the results.
In addition to the announcement of final year engineering results, there is a possibility that the results for third year (TE) and second year (SE) engineering courses may also be declared this week. Students are advised to keep a check on the university’s website for any updates regarding the same.
