College of Law royally buggers up its results
14 May 2010
There was chaos at the College of Law yesterday morning when LPC students were unable to get their results after the server crashed. Again.

we know how important the results are to you
" and advised that they could pick them up by hand at the assessments desks later in the day. Yup. 500+ students queuing in a tiny corridor. One said that students were faced with a "
mob between them and the tiny assessments office desk
". Another ruefully pointed out that "

Dozens of students wrote in to RollOnFriday to complain. For which they can expect a rap on the knuckles. When RollOnFriday

A spokeswoman for the College said that they were very sorry for the delay and that the results were up by 1pm. She added that the email warning students not to contact the press was sent by a tutor in a personal capacity and was not sanctioned by the College.
