Student demands VAR review of exam results
A Bristol University student demanded a ‘VAR review’ on his recent exam results in a move that shows how the entire nation has been infected with World Cup fever.
The student, who requested to remain anonymous, narrowly missed out on a 2:1 in Economics due to a ‘penalty mark’ received on his Applied Microeconomics coursework. He claimed that he was ‘obstructed’ when attempting to submit the coursework at the correct time, which ultimately led to him receiving a deduction for tardiness.
The Whip managed to contact the undergrad to understand why he thought his exam required reviewing, and what this meant for the future of exams at Bristol University.
This led him to question the legitimacy of the examination board as he quotes “Yes our results may be moderated, but how can we truly know they are correct if you haven’t looked at them from all angles in slow motion? The University needs to implement a full root-and-branch appraisal of how exams are kept fair, and I have little doubt they will find that they need to implement similar reforms to FIFA’s”.
The University is yet to respond.
