Uni supervisor - should i complain? watch

    • Thread Starter

    For my lab I have a supervisor but he keep pushing me with work, its insane...Im a first class tudent but have never felt the pressure...we are scheduled for labs 2-3 times a week, im in everyday 9-6! He expects me to do all this work and then after right up and sends it to him immediately, straight away...its bene like this for 8 weeks, im exhausted beyond belief...my other mates have 2-3 days per week, have finished their labs already after starting after me and dont have all this pressure...I dont even need to get that high to do well overall..he's even started ringing me at weekends etc...

    I dont get why he keeps pestering me, my enthusiasm has just diminished, he argues with this other supervisor who literally comes up to me and starts making me feel small..he's horrible..I know ill be done soon, but what should i do....

    Stick it out for last week, or make a compliant?

    I think you should talk to your supervisor about it. If it is as bas as you say it is then you should be able to talk to him seriously. Is all this workload he's giving you necessary and is it realistic that he gives you these short deadlines?
