Section headings in a report?

Hi all, UCL student here.
I got 80 / 100 on a report, but my only two improvements were that I didn't write "Introduction" as a heading when it was the introduction, and I forgot error bars for some graphs. I understand the error bars bit, but I do not agree with the headings. Surely I can't lose 1-10 marks just because I didn't say "introduction" and then wrote my introduction. If it's the first paragraph, surely you already know its the introduction XD.

Let me know what you guys think and if I should try to fight this.

What other feedback did you get, in addition to the two suggested improvements?

In general terms it's next to impossible to get 100 for reports, essays etc. It doesn't happen, really. There are always ways to make them better, and there is not a way to make them 'perfect'.

For written assesmsents, the rubric does not really tot up to 100.

Not sure how you could 'fight it'. 'Fighting' a first class mark would be very curious indeed, and you'd be challenging academic judgement, which is not allowed. You'd he challenging it on a first-class mark, too, which would be laughed at.
