Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi all, I am currently a student (undergraduate, third year) on a 4 year degree in engineering.
I would like some opinion on lab reports, for which I received poor-ish results (60% average).

Would someone here be willing to take a look at my write-ups and give me a honest opinion?

Your best bet would be to compare yours to someone who took the same lab and did well on it. You could also ask the prof or grader what they felt you were missing.

Sometimes messy handwritten lab reports turn graders off, other times disorganized reports show a lack of understanding the bigger picture.

Thanks for your reply, I have compared my work with fellow students and believe my work shows that I understand the concepts.
I also tried to talk to my lecturer, these are typed reports, with table of contents etc..
This is why I would like someone to take a look at these reports and give me an outside opinion (I am a mature student by the way).

It would be difficult for someone external to independently assess your report because that external person is not intimately familiar with the course, what material has been covered up to date, what specific requests were made with respect to report format, the details of the experiment, the marking scheme, etc.

As a student you have a right to a fair and well-explained assessment. If there is a point that your instrutor has made that you don't understand, that might be something people on the forums could help you out with.
