  1. pls send my set december 2015 result immediately . my roll no:40350016 by smitha joseph from malappuram on december 31,2015

  2. I had appeared for the SET Exam 2012 at JDT Islam High School, Marikunnu P O, Calicut. I am very much aggrieved over the manner in which the exam was conducted. In the morning session there was music competition in the campus, that too in a very high pitch sound. In the after noon session there was sport competition. Though we are grown and mature persons examination is something call for concentration and thinking. It was outrageous and preposterous to conduct examination at a venue were the sound was very high. I have lost my hard work and I feel that my exam was a futile exerciser due to the disturbances. I request thyself, in future whenever examinations are conducted, which has a bearing on one’s future, please ensure that the venue is something conducive for one to write the exam peacefully. I doubt what recourse myself and hundred of candidates who have appeared for the exam. All who have appeared for the exam have the same feeling, but I do not know how they have responded. I feel that what is lost to me is lost for ever. What I have lost is a year long hard work and painstaking. I hope this be an eye opener for the esteemed institution like yours who are undertaking this task of conducting the exam.
