NMMU Transscripts … WTF???
These idiots … shouldn’t be too difficult to send transscripts to my university in Germany. Should it? But let’s start at the beginning …
Last year I spend a few month studying at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU). From the start there had been some difficulties with my choice of modules. The problem: I chose modules from 2 different faculties. Uncommon but ok … at least they told me so. They only had to contact the faculties and wait for their ok. A mere formality. So far so good.
This „mere formality“ took 2 weeks!!! And every day I had to walk like 20min to get there just to hear: „Oh … sorry! I forgot! I was soooo busy. Come back 2morrow. Then it’ll be done.“ For sure … if you tell so! Finally, after 2 weeks and approximately 8 times hearing the mentioned sentence I had my modules 2gether. I finished 4 of them.
Back in Germany I asked our International Office for my transscripts (results for the modules I did), which should be sent to Wedel. As I know, some things take a little bit longer there in South Africa, so I wasn’t worried when the transscripts hvn’t arrived in March. In April I started calling the International Office of FH Wedel from time to time to ask for the transscripts. They were working on it and requesting the transscripts from the NMMU. Today I got notice via mail that the transscripts hv arrived. But not the way I expected them:
Year : 2006 BTech (Information Tech : Technical App)
COMPUTER SECURITY IV 52 PASS
Year : 2006 Dip (Information Tech : Software Dev)
ACCOUNTING INFORMATION SYSTEMS 201 CANCELLED
ADVANCED PROGRAMMING 411 CANCELLED
BUSINESS INFORMATION SYSTEMS 2.2 202 CANCELLED
DATA WAREHOUSING 411 CANCELLED
Let’s sum this up: I passed one module (52% might sound bad, but acctually it was one of the best results) and CANCELLED 4 of them. Am I missing sth. here??? I finished 3 out of 4 modules that are „CANCELLED“! I wrote damn exams in these modules and got my damn class mark. So … don’t tell me I hv cancelled these subject. It’s not my fault if these guys aren’t capable of managing some simple marks and student records.
Our International Office is on this, so I hope for the best. But still … I’m kind of pissed right now.
