Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 1. 1965.
Sirs,—In company with many other students I would like to know why there is such a delay in publishing the results of final examinations.
Firstly, I would point out that some results were not available last year until after Christmas, contrasting poorly with other Universities, such as Canterbury, where results were published before the middle of December.
Secondly, even when results were posted on the University notice boards, five days or more often elapsed before the results were published in the newspapers. This means that students whose homes are outside Wellington have to make special arrangements to procure a Wellington paper for over a month after finals in order to find out their results.
Why cannot these results be made available earlier and why is it that the newspapers are so sluggardly in printing them?
