Group Theory III

This petition had 108 supporters


We have received an email regarding the Group Theory Test, scheduled for the 7th of April, which has been postponed to the 11th of April. Furthermore, we have been informed that due to a religious holiday taking place on the 11th of April, there will be a separate test scheduled for the 18th of April to accommodate these students. However, we would like to make a proposal that the test scheduled for the 11th of April be postponed until the 18th of April in order to ensure that all students are afforded the same opportunity and time to prepare for this test. 

Our reasons for proposing this are as follows:

· We question the fairness of a group of students being given a later date and thus more time to prepare for the assessment.

·      Students registered for other courses within the Science Faculty such as Physics, Computational and Applied Mathematics and Computer Sciences have multiple tests, already scheduled for next week (10th – 13th April);

·      In addition, our Number Theory III and Topology III tests are scheduled for 13th April;

We understand that the postponement of the test comes as a result of circumstances that may be beyond the control of the department. Thus, as a collective, we request that all students be given a fair and equal opportunity to present ourselves for this assessment, where all students write under the same conditions.
