Do these people actually deserve this acknowledgement?
No offense, I'm sure that most of them do (Congratulations to you guys!). But speaking from my personal experience, especially when it comes to my class and myself, I believe that scoring 3.5 can be as easy as singing the alphabet.
Looking at my coursemates, I know of those who tried really hard but still fail and those who do not have to do much and still score. The education system in the university is all screwed up, or maybe it's just the department that I am studying under. Those who try really hard tend to lose out to those who are smarter, not only by how they study, but how connected they are to the lecturers and smarter friends.
I cannot believe that I am studying in a higher education institution. Feels like I'm studying in a kindergarten. Eh, wait, kindergarten oso not like this wan.
These are some the things that piss me off and make me want to quit studying in a menara gading:
Just because you're holding a postgraduate status doesn't mean you can take undergraduates lightly and not encouraging them to use their potentials to the maximum!
2. Recycled questions. I fucking benci when lecturers give final examination questions which are exactly the replica of tests/tutorial/past years' questions. How original can you get man? Damn lazy issit? How do you expect to encourage your students to practise critical and creative thinking when all they have to do is memorise all the answers from their assignments, tutorials and tests? Just give them A la! I feel insulted when I am given recycled questions. It's like the question papers have "You are damn stupid that's why I'm giving you these" written on them. Celaka.
3. (Un)Sharing is caring. Oh well. I know those who get tips but not share. Wtf? Wtf? Are you really happy to be getting better grades just because you know the questions beforehand and you searched for the answers already. I believe that lecturers should give tips during class and not entertain personal requests. Unless you believe that the student involved will share with the others. Better tak yah bagi tipsla.
4. Copykucings. Another thing that pisses me off. Those people who openly discuss during tests and get GREAT results. It doesn't matter of you're whispering or not, we, the others who are trying to think and solve the questions on our own can still hear your voicesla. And that's fucking annoying. It is not wrong to copy assignments (I used to, but I'm trying to do things my own way, but unfortunately I don't get them right *sadness*) but don't la copy during tests. Really mencemarkan the purity of tests tau. *sighs* Tests should be done like the real final examinations. Employ strict invigilators. FORCE the students to sit apart during tests. If not, it will just be damn unfair to those who really try. =( Kesian kat diorang tau. Die you selfish people! Ho! Ho! Ho!
Anyways, I'm bitching because I had a headache since yesterday night and because I did horribly for a test today. However, I have been wanting to crap about the above topic because I've been keeping them inside me for quite awhile and the whole unfairness issue just bugs me inside out. Pardon me for using foul languages and if anyone were to be affected by this post, feel free to say someething. I am for one, not perfect either.
