Jane's communication and marking methods.

When asking questions regarding the coursework and its brief, we were told; read the assignment brief, yes, ditto and that the answer to the question was obvious.

These responses to questions did not aid us at all in completing the coursework and in many cases made it even more confusing. Some students did not even receive a reply from her.

This is made even worse when several students were told in their feedback to ask questions if they are unsure and that they misread the assignment brief, resulting in dramatically reduced marks.

Another issue was referencing the student handbook, previous coursework assignments have told us not to refer to this and to use the guidelines provided by the lecturer. However, Jane would respond to questions by simply telling us to refer to the handbook. Many students have found this misinformation extremely confusing and we feel issues such as this need to be clarified.

Finally, the feedback provided does not match the work in many cases. Several students have come forward stating that their feedback is either; incorrect, informal or not helpful at all. It seems very rushed and not thought through at all considering the implications that these marks will have.

We feel this is extremely unfair and not what we as students expect from a university such as UCL.
