My group's COMP3804 demonstration is this coming week (along with everything else that is due). We had signed up to a demonstration time over 3 weeks ago, and yesterday the lecturer apparently called and said they've got a class on at that time and would we like to do it way earlier in the day or way later? And these are the people lecturing us on project and time management?
Even worse, for the exam we have coming up for the same subject, they expect us to do well after only giving us one tutorial question for each topic, and not even publishing solutions to them. Then after I email my concerns about being under-prepared for the exam, they reply saying that 'study the notes' and come to the last lecture which will be on preparing for the exam.
During this 'Exam preparation lecture', they not only told us where and when the exam was going to be (WOW!, publicly available information!!!) and how important it is to well on this exam (because our final grades for the year-long course are capped by our exam mark), then they showed us a total of 4 questions that would be typical to those on the exam, in which they only left up for a few minutes (not enough time to copy them down), and they won't publish them. On the last question when asked on how much it would be worth in terms of marks, they responded: not very many because it is a simple question. (Why show it to us then????!!!).
I would like them to sit an exam about subject that they have never done before, with the only preparation being one question for each topic without even a published solution, and see them do well!
I am so sick of this friggin course!!!!!!!!!
