Im a first year student and have been assigned my first assessment. Last week my lecturer told us to email him a draft version which I did on Tue/Wed. He emailed me back on Thurs saying he’ll give me feedback later on in the day. He didnt.
So i waited until Monday and I didnt get a reply whereas my friend emailed him on Fri & gave her feedback on Saturday. I emailed him saying I appericate you’re busy and wanted to know when I’ll get my feedback.
Yesterday, I had a lecture with him and at the beginning he said put your hands up if I havent given you feedback so there were like 3 of us. He said to us email him again to remind and he’ll give us feedback. I still don’t have any replies from him & this work is due in on Friday and I won’t be seeing him until next week now.

I’m not sure what to do.

As he asked you, Email him again to remind him.

Check the email address. And if you are sure it correct pop round to his office and ask him, or the department secretary.

I am unashamedly a pest to university lecturers, I email, chase, email, chase constantly.

The way I see it is that if you put in the effort to submit the work on time the least they can do is give you feedback, plus you are paying an extortionate amount in tuition fees.

Often they will tell you to hound them. The reason being is that they're incredibly busy and it is difficult to keep track of requests from hundreds of students.

Check the email address is correct, if it is, keep emailing him. Try to go and see him after one of his lectures or go to his office, you need to follow up with him and chase him down

I dont want to come across as ‘annoying’ i emailed yesterday around this time. I should probably email him today esp if he said he was meant to give feedback yesterday

Kind regards

It might sound a bit sh**ty but I have learned this is the only way you get things done in life!

You should have seen the tone of some of the emails I sent to my solicitors when buying my house 😂

Could you go to see them in person? Some lecturers have drop in hours where they will be in their office. Failing that you could try copying in a higher up member of staff into the email. That's what we get told to do. Unfortunately some lecturers are abominble at answering emails even though they are supposed to have a 3 day turn around!
