Admission

I have completed my B.com from Madras university correspondence. The fees are very less when compared with other universities. Moreover, The exams are conducted on time and results published without delay. Mostly the exams will be on Saturdays and Sundays for the convenience of people who are working or doing some other courses. I am planning to pursue MBA from Madras University. However, I felt that the Madras University is not giving any notification personally about the exam registration, result publication, Marklist issuing. If they improve their communication with students it will be better for their progress.
