Your Views: Must try harder
Thursday 23 September 1999
Presentations were important because the marks for them affected your degree level. Despite dire warnings on time limits, these were handled casually. Favourite students were allowed to overrun the 20-minute "limit". Others were cut short. My presentation was cancelled twice because of lecturers' illness but rescheduled at short notice - in one case with no notice. The lecturer became hysterical when I pointed out the problem. Also, despite emphasis on the importance of hand-in dates for essays, the corresponding obligation on lecturers to return marked work before the next assignment was often ignored.
In a company, such inefficiency would be intolerable. The only saving grace is what one learns, and the friendliness and respect one encounters on the course.
