Scraping Off VNSGU Exam Results

on
August 1, 2018
During my schooldays, I had a classmate. Let's call him/her X. We always used to compete fiercely for 1st rank in school exams. Fast forward school. Now in college. 3 years zoomed off, I didn't hear anything about X. As humans, we tend to be interested in stories of our old rivals. I'm no different. I wanted to know how X has been doing in college. In India, exam results are often indication of one's brilliance and success. Though, I thoroughly disagree with that notion, I started to wonder, is there any way I could get results of X? It could be a good weekend project.
