Hi,

I am majorly pissed off at the moment after a lecturer at my university claimed I didn't give him an excuse as to why I missed an in class quiz. (Worth 6% of his module).

I went to his office personally and told him, and said I required a doctors note which I acquired and handed in to my personal tutor.

Now I ask you this unrelated question...

If you are pretty ill for the week before a test, but on the day of the test you feel half ok, do you take it?

• You haven't done any revision at all
• You still haven't fully recovered
• If you take the test you will most definitely fail it.

Whats your opinion?

Hmm this sounds like Webster... - he doesn't seem like an unreasonable man, but does follow things to the letter.

If you handed in a sick note then that should do it. Was this the first faffy quiz or the second ?

it was the second, If I am under 40% (which i doubt) then I will argue this vehemently!!

Not worth worrying about, it is a little annoying but like you say unless you somehow get under 40 % on his unit then it's irrelavent.

10 credits is 10 credits whether it's by 41 % or 99 %.

just got an email back. He said that unless I need the extra marks to pass then there is probably no need to take it.

Like I thought, a reasonable man.
