It was way back in January, when I was still trying to cope up with the Roorkee winter that I was given this project. I still remember the day, a then fourth yearite, Pulkit Vashishta, was chairing the meeting and announcing the projects that were to be assigned to each new member.My excitement was increasing exponentially with each passing assignment. After a few, all of which I had an urge to do, finally, I was assigned Online Exams.

During the early stages of this project, it never occurred to me that a computer does only what you tell it to do. When I first showed my in-charge the running version of the same (that was a very basic version with only back, next and finish buttons), the back button also appeared in the first question and the next button in the last question meaning I could jump to the -5th question as well! Well, dunno about you, but it seemed pretty humorous to me! It does feel awesome that I have come a long way since!
For quite a few months now, it has seemed to me that this application could be launched the very next day, and every time I was close to the launch, someone would come up with a good suggestion, which would require another few days to complete. Add to it the weird errors that would creep up due to unexplainable reasons (even though I came up with solutions to each one, believe me, I am still bewildered as to what caused some of them.)
