From the university: "We are emailing to announce a change to the Spring Semester undergraduate examination results publication date. In response to the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the results publication date will now be one week later than previously advertised."

Really? How many months has it been now? What possible unforeseen impact has the pandemic had given that the university has been operating under these conditions for over a year? State of this

I mean, I don't much care, it's only the official transcript of results, you know your results beforehand anyway - it's just the constant excuses from companies, universities, government at this late stage of the pandemic

Sowwy the pandemic is going on so we can't possibly figure out how to answer the phone, fix your internet, release your exam results, we made a fucky wucky 🥺 🥺

Especially since the pandemic has been going on since the start of the academic year, what has changed?

It's almost like employers are deliberately making flimsy pandemic excuses, so they can push for people to head back to the office the moment the government says they can

@ak I think in some cases its also because the tech skills to set up VPNs, reroute VOIP telephone systems to mobiles and provide secure/robust remote working environments have been so widely outsourced or simply lost over the years so many orgs are still genuinely struggling (and many didn't have particularly robust systems or support even before the pandemic..)
