It's that time of year again when the A-Level results are in and hopeful applicants find out if they've got a place to study at the University of Bath.
Within the Computing Services department , it falls to the SAMIS team and Systems Developer, Matt Dales to collect all the results and send them to the Admissions team so the all important decisions can be made. Matt was keen to point out that it's very much a departmental effort and involves many teams from Computing Services. He explained that, 'collecting all the data, does take time and this year it took around 2 hours to get everything together'.
This year, Matt collated the results in record time, beating our record from last year and many other universities to get results to the Admissions team so they could make decisions quickly and not keep prospective students waiting.
Although Matt was reluctant to take any praise for this, Matt's dedication appears to have paid off as the timings for this year's result collection are shown below:
Last year’s times:
CF/CI start time: 19:24 end time: 20:54
This year’s times:
CF/CI start time: 19:07 end time: 20:25
Good luck to everyone today, we really hope you get the results you were wishing for.
