The original marking of a 2000-word paper included a comment from lecturer Edwina Luck advising Mr Duggan to present “more smarter writing”.
Perhaps Ms. Luck was suffering a bad air-pressure day.
After Ms Luck graded the paper at 65 per cent, Mr Duggan questioned the grade and Ms Luck passed it to another staffer, Dr Yunus Ali, who downgraded it to 35 per cent.
In re-marking, Dr Ali questioned the use of the terms “Yin” and “Yang”, a Chinese concept of balance, and said they should have been listed as references in the bibliography (a list of the books used as reference material).
Yesterday, Dr Ali admitted he had “no idea” what the terms meant and thought they were references to people’s names.
“We don’t go into the deeper meaning,” he said.
Further details about Dr. Ali and Ms. Luck may be found here. Don’t send any emails; they’ll likely reply in s-less gibberish:
In response to further queries, Ms Luck sent Mr Duggan a short e-mail which, because her “s” key was not functioning, read as:
“I knew you would be di appointed, o what I have done i taken the middle ground. I am uppo ed to take the econd mark, but I did not want to kill you that much. I do hope that you have learned from thi . Not the point of a king for explanation, but that we a lecturer are not totally illy!! Academic writing i difficult. I hope all our comment can be helpful in the future. Edwina.”
