Well, after the Mechanics Of Flight (MoF) coursework debacle yesterday, I was under the impression that things couldn't possibly sink any lower; I was wrong. Our university has the policy regarding late submissions of coursework past the deadline, that you'll lose 5% of your mark for each day late that your piece of work is, which is understandable. The fact that our MoF lecturer decided to give a lecture on the answer to the coursework today (the day after the deadline), having stating in the coursework questions that 'usual conditions apply regarding late submissions' (i.e. that it's OK to hand in work late, but you'll be docked 5% each day for the pleasure) is just plain dumb. So, since this piece of work is pretty much the hardest/most awkward piece we've had this year, a number of students were planning on taking a few extra days on it (so that, despite losing 10-15%, they'd still have more marks after this time than if they'd handed it in on time), pretty much all hell has broken loose, since this gives a fair number of people the chance to get near full-marks by handing it in today, while the rest of everyone who handed it in on time go about complaining to their respective personal tutors, and the course co-ordinator and secretary about the incompetance of this particular lecturer.
I mean, I know some lecturers are pretty dumb, but this surely takes the Digestive.
And, since I'm pretty sure I screwed most of it up and wasn't in the mood to find out everything I'd gotten wrong and spend the rest of the day feeling depressed, this (under the cut) is the result of myself trying to ignore the lecture going on. All hail productivity!
Nazi peanuts FTW!
Anyhow, lunch, and today's episode of Neighbours beckons. Awesome.
