Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

I’ve just received an email, from which I have quoted below:

I have been in touch with a variety of staff responsible for the marking of your assignments.

Due to a variety of unforeseen circumstances the results/feedback have been delayed by at least a week. Some results/feedback may not be released until the end of next week (Fri 6th May).

Does this mean that I’m now allowed to say ‘Due to a variety of unforseen circumstances, my availability for exams has been delayed by at least a week.’ Somehow, I doubt it. But what it does mean is that I won’t be getting results from any of this year’s assignments until a week before the exams, and so won’t know my weak points which I need to concentrate on during revision. Helpful.
