Do University lecturers write the exam papers?Watch
Gonna cliff this because somehow I turn the simplest of things into paragraphs:
- Last week a lecturer sent us a recently published article saying it may be useful for revision.
- Assuming the lecturer does write the exam I thought there's no way he would send us something to revise in the knowledge it won't come up, that would just waste our time and be misleading.
- Had the exam today, one of the questions was directly related to the article.
- Today (this is another module and another lecturer) I asked the lecturer if things that were covered in the coursework are likely to come up in the exam.
- He emailed me back and said some topics, like (and then gave reference to a specific component of the module), may come up because they are so broad.
- I'm thinking, if he knew this specific thing wouldn't come up he referred to, he would've just said "some things may be replicated because they are so broad" without referring to something in particular.
What do you guys think? I don't want to invest all my time into one thing just in case it wouldn't come up, but going on my first example it seems like it should?
As far as I know it is the lecturers that write the exam. However be cautious with that, although they may give you a slight hint which way the questions could go, it is also frivolous to assume that's all that will come up. It will be useful to keep cracking on with the rest of the course as well, just in case.
