    uni / college rant!

    I am at college studying a foundation degree.

    our 1st assignment got marked and handed back today, I failed. 30%

    40% is a pass.


    We handed them in last week, one lad didnt hand his in, becase he didn't do it.

    He now has until the end of the 1st year to hand it it, but the highest mark he can get is 40%


    it is my fault I failed, but the fact that I handed mine in and he didnt and he can still pass doesnt make sense..


    does it?

    Re: uni / college rant!

    the one thing i hav learnt from uni is there is always a way to get a deadline extended. You ll know fir next time to work harder or if you aint going to hand in a bit of work that you think is passable ask for an extension as there is nothin worse than havin to do the same piece of work twice!

    I had to give a doctor's note just for missing a practical session, never mind a deadline

    Surely as you failed you will get a chance to do a resit? Then you will also get the chance to get the 40% needed?

    Regardless of the other guys mark you failed. Suggestion would be to worry more about what you are doing and get a better mark rather than worrying about others?!

    Of course it's your fault you failed. How could you possibly think it's anybody else's fault that your peice of work was ****? Honestly mate, if I were you I'd just give up on education, you've ranted about it before and I'd say it's just not your bag.

    Failed at foundation level... maybe you're just not suited to that course.
