Dhoni Can Request For Alternative Centre To Sit For B.Com Exams

PTI 29 Jan 2010, 17:32:31 IST

Eager to support its high-profile student's career, Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's college might allow him to appear for his forthcoming B.Com exams at a city of his choice.

With his busy schedule and the Indian Premier League just round the corner, a request by Dhoni to appear for his exams outside the college could be favourably considered by the management.

"If it is not possible for him to appear here (in the college), the college may make provisions for him to appear at any other centre," St Xavier's College Dean (Student's Welfare) Dr Jayant Sinha said when asked whether the cricketer can be alloted examination centre in another city.

"But the request to appear for examination outside the college should come from him in writing so that the college management can consider it," he told PTI.

"I spoke to Dhoni a month ago. He was more than willing to appear his B.Com exams," Sinha added.

A B.Com student with Office Management and Secretarial Practice as his subjects, Dhoni had joined St Xavier's College in 2008 to complete graduation after discontinuing studies to shape his cricketing career. PTI
