Though no matter how much prep you do, the thought of being in the exam room still gives you a borderline panic attack.
July has arrived, and that means the dreaded time to get your exam results is only around the corner – a few weeks to be exact.
I clicked through, and the results had been altered but still my overall grade showed as 2:2.
After emailing again to confirm that this was my final result, I was told that I had received a 2:1.
Who knows how many degrees might have been wrongly recorded owing to admin errors?
But perhaps what is most saddening is the message this sends to students.If anyone checked they would have noticed the error, and it makes me wonder if universities see students as just cogs in a machine.You’ve (hopefully) been revising properly, avoided Netflix like the plague and reduced your social life to a shadow of its former self, all so you can ace your upcoming exams.After several emails, the faculty confirmed my essay marks and arranged for my exam results to be amended.Soon afterwards I was sent an email informing me that my results had been changed and could now be seen on the online portal.However half of my essay results, a huge chunk of my final-year grade, were missing, with the results “NR” (not recorded).I realised that my grade had been calculated as if I had never done those essays, and that had brought it down.My initial thought was that my essays had been rejected, or for some reason had been wiped off the system.However, after checking my results for these essays, they were still there.These days, it couldn’t be easier to receive your results.All you need is wi-fi, a device and your login details. My exams had also gone well and I was sure I hadn’t dropped below a 2:1.
