Thanks to Spiderfatty and the Hookah Master, at #AUM we have the most sposticated exam policy:
It is the only university on earth that requires faculty to produce four versions of each exam. For exams taking place during different days, four versions per day. If your exams take place over 3 days, 3*4 = 12 versions. All of them different. Good luck finding material. A sad thought about courses with over 10 secions… They may need up to 20 versions. Are you looking forward to socializing in the control room? Maybe you will find your soulmate there.
Rumor has it that is also how Hookah Shops work in Egypt. You have to produce four bills for each customer. The more the customers, the more varied the bills.
Ironically, the exam weight is 20% (of course) because it is complemented with a very sophisticated grade distribution scheme for which #Spiderfatty won the International Award of Can-you-be-more-idiotic-i-dont-think-so.
The difference between the final exam and any other assessment at #AUM is nothing in terms of weight. The final exam, however, requires a military regime enforced to please… the… hmmm… oh yeah, the students. Of course, it is the students who matter. It works for the students, mind you, but not to teach them, rathe to ensure they pass. More in – more out = more money. You get us! Sadly the professors in-and-out balance is not that stable.
Spiderfatty is a big believer of in-and-out methodology. We are sure you all felt it. They appointed a Nobody from the Hookah Master’s home town to run exams. His prior experience in Hookah places was his main qualification. What did he add to the process, you might ask. Many things in fact, but primarily nothing. But the proctoring improvement is evident. Now you have to proctor more! Come on, you, lazy people!
Ironically, exams and grades mean nothing. Let me tell you why… It doesn’t matter what the students get, you will be asked to curve the results. If you don’t, our beloved AUM will do it for you. Be thankful. Every semester AUM kindly curves the results for 2000 students in average. Of course, our admission is booming. Who wouldn’t go for it?
