A lesson from IIT Bombay

I don't know how many of you have heard of IIT Bombay, but it's a very well known and popular institute among engineering students. This institute is recognised as one of the centres of academic excellence in the India. In short, it's the MIT of India. Well.. check out this interesting true incident that happened in IIT Bombay years ago.

One night, 4 MBA students were out partying till wee hours and didn’t prepare for the test which was scheduled for the following morning. The next day they hatched a plan - they made themselves look as dirty and dishevelled as they could, then approached the dean and told him they attended a wedding reception the previous night, and on their way back, the tyre of their car burst. So they had to push the car all the way back and that they were in no condition to sit for the test.

The dean thought for a minute, and then said to the students they can sit for the test after 3 days. On the 3rd day they appeared before the dean.

The dean announced that this was a special condition test - all 4 of them were required to sit for the test in separate classrooms. They all agreed as they had prepared well in the last 3 days.

The test consisted of 2 questions, with a total of 100 marks:

Q1. Your name ................. (2 marks)
Q2. Which tyre burst? ……. (98 marks)

a) Front left
b) Front right
c) Back left
d) Back right

Kudos to the Dean !!!
Moral of the story : Don't mess up with your lecturers ;p
