Our first year grades are due the
25th 28th and will be released soon thereafter all in a lump. This is a big change from previous practice where the grades were due on a rolling basis related to when the exam was given, and the size of the class. And they were released as they came in. This, we suspect, spread the pain for first years and interfered with second semester studiousness. Perhaps, we hope, people will have settled down into second semester routines and be better able to weather any jolts the grades may deliver.
As my exam was on the very last day of the exam period, and my section (IJ) has the most students, I get the worse deal here, but that's life.
Anyway, now that I've used up all the pills they gave me for my dental surgery, I'm back to grading. Which is a different sort of pain.
