Students who were missing during the internal exams (especially preps, which enrages teachers to no end even though they have less papers to correct) are all told to take the question paper of each subject, and answer it seven times on paper (WITHOUT being able to choose from among optional questions). What this does is, convert an already monumental 3-hour paper into an epic 4-hour paper that just never seems to end. Multiply that by 7 and you have 28 hours of torturous writing. That's only for ONE subject. Imagine what happens when you've missed all six. Ushu!!!!!!!
(For the mathematically inclined, that's 6 papers x 28 hours of writing = 168 hours of writing. That's how many hours there are in an entire week, Don't miss it the Evil Genius funda! Most people's fingers start falling off one-by-one around the 120th hour)
At the end of one week, impositions for all missed subjects must be submitted, or death will come on swift wings from HOD. Each copy of the answer sheet must be neatly bound into a separate bundle. The unfortunates can be seen scribbling day or night, in lunch break, in labs under the desk when they're supposed to be conducting experiments, even in the rarely-visited library - for they are petrified of not having enough time to finish before the deadline arrives. It's not surprising then, that this one week tends to be remembered as the most horrific in college)
This method of ensuring students attend exams the next time around is very effective indeed. Some lecturers like to defend their actions by saying this process also helps non-serious students learn at least something about the subject while they answer their impositions. No one ever believes them.
Dilip : "That's all aa? Simbly don't crib then. I have to write for English, Hindi, Computers AND Electronics! Imagine what will happen to MY thalle at the end of it all" *woeful, repentant look*
