NUS students angry over cancelled exam: Got exam, complain. No exam, also complain.

SINGAPORE: Some students from the National University of Singapore were shocked when their economics examination was cancelled on Saturday due to a lack of test papers. More than 700 first-year students were supposed to take the exam when they were informed of the change. The university said it had not printed enough papers for the examination. The 30 per cent weightage of the mid-term paper will now be shifted to other assignments. An official apology was finally sent out to all affected students. An NUS student, who only wanted to be known as Mr Tan, said: "I feel very frustrated and annoyed because I studied so hard for it and it got cancelled at the last minute." "I'm also annoyed at how they called us down on a Saturday and did not send (us) the information in a professional manner... I shouldn't be hearing this kind of thing from a friend," he added.
