Impotant Update!

I (along with my wife & eldest daughter) was recently diagnosed with Dengue. We are receiving treatment at a local hospital and recovering gradually, however still very weak. I have been instructed to stay away from internet/pc/cellphone as much as possible. So, it will not be a long post! 

I hope you understand it's not practically possible for me to check and reply to every email at this point. Sunday was the first exam day and the first office day of the week, so could not make any alternet arrangement which was possible for Monday exams. Anyway, here is the plan for people who still have unfinished tasks.

FIN440 final exam will be held at 11 am @ NAC514 on Thursday (20th August). For those of you who missed other various exams earlier, please contact Dept. of Acct n Fin  secretary Ms Farzana Sultana by visiting her dept office physically for your makeup exam arrangements. Those of you who still could not submit your reports, do that as soon as possible to her. If you have any especial issues, you may let her know. Please be patient and understanding when you approach her with any request as she is a very busy person serving so many dept faculty members and students.

I am extremely sorry for all the inconveniences you have experienced so far. Please try to forgive me and keep us in your prayers. Thank you.
