University Coursework - NOT ASKING FOR CODE!
At UWE Bristol [UK], we have been given this coursework; I am in the process of complaining as out of about 20 students, that I know of, only 1 or 2 have managed to complete the coursework, I haven't managed to even start as I don't have a clue where to start and the lecturer is never available to ask for help (he's a total waste of time, and if you are thinking of coming to UWE, his name is Peter Martin; you have been warned if you have a module with him, you will have to teach yourself everything!
well, here is the coursework, none of us have ever done C++ programming modules at university (some may have previous c++ experience, but most of us do not!) ...I was just wandering how complex this coursework really is as for me it is impossible! I will be taking the resit, the deadline is now passed so posting code is not necessary! well, here is a link to the specification! I would just like to know; is this a bit unfair for a second year module (note; this module is worth a quater of the second year credits (30), and we only started it in January, and teaching time was 4hours a week and the lecturer is never available, and never replies to emails) I am very angry, it has ruined my chances of getting a 1st for my second year! I am very tempted to take this story to the national press!
NOTE: We have never been taught anything about XML parsing in any of the lectures! its just all teach yourself!
here is the url....
If you have time, your opinions would be much appriciated! - I can put any points forward in my complaint to the university.
