Ranchi: A busy cricketing schedule has led to Indian team captain MS Dhoni failing to even appear for the first semester examination of his BCom degree after enrolling himself for the course five years ago at a city college.
Dhoni, who enrolled in BCom in 2008 at St Xavier’s College here, could not clear even one of his six semesters, “absenting” from examinations due to busy cricketing schedule, and his results in the first semester had been marked as absent.
“Yes, he (Dhoni) would have been among the students who got the degrees,” Principal Nicholas Tete said, after giving away degrees to 1,790 students of his St Xavier’s College on the occasion of the fourth Graduation Ceremony here on Monday.
“Dhoni registered for the three-year course in 2008, which is effective for five years. And he can renew afresh, (if he wants to complete the course),” Tete said.
“We had prepared study material for his first semester and sent them to him. (But) he did not respond,” he said.
Dhoni, who has Office Administration and Secretarial Practice as his subjects in BCom, had completed Plus-II in 1999. (PTI)
