So, I am in my final year at university and for my of my modules we have to work in a group, and our mark for the module depends on how well our group work is (it’s 15 credits and runs across both semesters).
Well my group are essentially night owls and want to constantly meet at 9/10pm and work until 2/3am. That doesn’t work for me and another member as I have had some bad experiences (almost missed an exam, missed a important meeting and have been late to many events as I stifle waking up if I don’t get enough sleep, as in I don’t hear my alarm) staying up stupidly late on a regular basis and the other member has to wake up early. We have both tried to address this issue with our group but constantly get ignored. Also if I don’t turn up to the meetings I will get 0 in the module.
The excuse is we do engineering, what were you expecting. Don’t get me wrong I know it’s a lot of work and I have been putting the effort into my course but I would prefer meeting at a reasonable hour. I find that they prefer to have a social life during the day and do work at night, not my problem but I would prefer group work during a sensible time.
Anyway, how I need some help going about this issue. I feel like it’s a bit of a stupid one to talk to the lecturer about.
