I'm back.

Exams marked?

Tick.

My exams, anyway. Two sets remain but they'll be marked by sessional lecturers. (Some subjects are taught entirely by sessional staff. I co-ordinate, moderate and occasionally agitate but otherwise don't deal with the imparting of knowledge in those subjects.) I've collated the results so now I can see the gaps—who hasn't handed in which piece of assessment. All that's left to do is find out why.

I suspect some students play a numbers game. The on-course assessment is worth a measly 40% of the final mark, so if I ignore that and blitz the exam ...

If only.

The lowest final mark was 6%, which must have taken a special effort. The highest was 92%. What a spread.

But it's not over yet. Special considerations, special exams, supplementary exams, student progress committees ... It goes on and on.

It takes a bit of time to wind up the blogging rate again, though. And this bleedin' 'ot weather doesn't help.
