- I have received a zero mark for my assignment because
of a simple compilation error (or insert another problem
here). Is this fair?I have published the marking
criteria at the very beginning of the semester. Also, I have
a Web based assignment submission system which provides you
a method to submit your assignments easiest possible
way. You can resubmit your work as many times as
you want until after the deadline passes (actually you can still
submit after the deadline, but you will get marks deducted
because of late submission). You don't even have to come to
school to submit your assignment. Additionally, in the
assignment handouts, I tell you how do I compile your
assignments. All I want is: Whenever you make a change (even
for a very trivial change), before submitting,
recompile your assignment as recommended in the handouts to make sure that there
is no error. That's all. Is this a big ask? I don't think
- Can I get a supplementary exam for the unit XXXX?
Supplementary exams are offered by the department if the student
narrowly missed passing the unit in their last or next-to-last semester
of enrolment and would otherwise graduate (max 1 unit for Masters).
They are not automatic and the decision is made by the Board of Examiners.
Typically they need 40 or more to get an offer.
The student will be considered when we have their final semester
results, and sent a letter offering the supp if we decide to offer it.
From 2005, such exams will be held in the supp/def exam periods in
August and January.
About Ahmet the Person
- I have sent you an email, why haven't you replied to me?
Unfortunately email is not an instant communications medium
anymore. I get too many emails, far too many than I can reply every
working day. I try to read all of them though. If you are one of my
students, please come and see me during my consultation hours, chat with
the short break between the lectures, or after the lectures. There are
also tutorial hours to have discussions.
- How do I pronounce your surname? Try this: sha-care-dji-ou-lou.
