My question relates to a subject I took last semester, which since then I have found out that a lot of students failed and complained that it was too hard and the lecturer wasn't satisfactory. The university has since removed that lecturer and simpified the content and the assessment pieces. Is this common practice in universities? I ended up getting a distinction in the subject, but people who have done the subject since it was revised may get the same or better mark. This seems unfair if GPA, positions, and bursaries are on the line. What do you think?
