According to tutor, the marker messed up my exam.

    I posted about this Monday when I got my disappointing mark back.

    I emailed my tutor as soon as I had calmed down and she replied earlier today. Apparently the marker only got ONE page of my work out of EIGHT!!!

    So he obviously just marked the first double-sided page and marked it... It all makes sense now. I don't know if the marker is to blame or the person who picked up my copy.

    Anyway... the bad news is that they can't change the mark. What a joke. I can still proceed to my third year, but it's still crazy...

    I've been under so much stress these last few days.

    Can't you appeal?

    Doesn't seem like it based on the rules she copy pasted + linked into the email. Apparently there is nothing I can do.

    Luckily this doesn't mean I have to take a retake, I can just proceed to the next year and focus on other modules to reach the overall grade I want.

    Nevertheless, it's annoying.
