i am furious. bloody furious.
if you have gone through this post, you would've notice i got an A- while the majority of the class flopped. in this morning's class, the lecturer actually suggested to have another test, and exclude the previous results from the overall assessment.
now you tell me if you won't feel mad. i'm pretty sure some shitheads went to see the lecturer privately and proposed this ridiculous idea. i can't believe some people can be so selfish. it's enough that they screwed up their own lives, now they want everyone else to accompany them.
when you did not do well in your test, it's because you didn't prepare. when you didn't prepare, you should be expecting shit results. to obtain shit results and then propose something for redemption, is pure crap. you know how many percentage that test carries in the assessment, so do your homework. i didn't complain when i fluked my first test, i accepted that i didn't do enough back then, and the marks should be carried into my assessment to reflect my efforts. and now they're suggesting to drop the percentage which i did well and go for another midsem test, 5 days before the final examination begins. some even had the nerves to propose to have the test during the finals. smart ass.
i have a better suggestion. why not have it after our finals? and if you still screw up, then why don't we have another one next semester? or the best solution of all, why don't we sign a 70-year agreement with the rights to re-sit the test if you do poorly in every previous attempt, fixed with a free euro trip every 5 years, a life insurance contract, unlimited internet access for a life time, and a reserved right to alter contents in the agreement to your preference? that way, we'll all be enjoying the benefits, and everyone shall live happily ever after.
it's a wonder things like this can happen in universities. this is exactly the reason why i despise the quota system in my department. when undergraduates got in just to fill up the racial allocation, some will have difficulty coping as well as the others. and when these losers screw up, the others had to be dragged back so that the difference would not be as obvious. the losers have a second chance and everything to gain, and the rest have nothing but to lose. i pity the one who scored 90% for the test. all her efforts went down into the drain. gone. vanished. disappeared.
i give up. the country's education system is hopeless.
