He lectures Management, and yes he is retiring and it seems wants to prove the point that students aren't as good, he has other motives too.
He is a visiting lecturer from Aston University, I wander why the University cannot use its own management lecturers. It seems that a lot of "oldies" are failing students purely out of hate for those who are 40+ years younger.
Those on my course took Logistics and Management with him. Unfortunately those two modules are worth 3 credits. So he alone can make a student fail the year even if they average 1st in everything else.
University Management: If you are reading this, waive his modules for those of us doing well in everything else. If I fail this year because of 1 hateful man, I will go to the press.
