University exam paper with no indication of marks? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Is a university allowed to set an exam say 5 questions with a,b,c,d subjections and not indicate how much marks a question is worth?

    How would you know which questions to focus on?

    Is there any room for compliant? It turned out some questions had lots of marks attached to them! People just assumed all the questions were worth the same. (not much else we could do)

    They're allowed to do whatever thay want. If there was unequal weighting attached to questions and this wasn't pointed out then you could complain. Not sure how far it would get you though
