As students of Cryptography, we would like for a full investigation to take place by the Board of Examinations and the QMUL School of Mathematical Sciences on the MTH6115 - CRYPTOGRAPHY exam, held on the 10th of January 2020, which was a really difficult and unfair assessment of the module content. This exam was unreasonably difficult and there were questions that were so lengthy which led to a constraint on time for most students. Alongside this, there were many complaints throughout the year regarding the teaching of the module. The notes had been significantly updated and not uploaded until only a few weeks before the exam. Students also did not feel comfortable approaching the lecturer for help. The number of students attending lectures plummeted as a result of poor teaching, and many left more confused than when they came in.

Consequently the resources given were not adequate preparation to this exam and they lacked structure. 

We believe that the performance of most students who took this exam will not be reflective of their abilities in this module, and therefore we demand that the marks should be re-scaled and papers to be marked accordingly.

We hope this petition will help in organising a thorough investigation of not only this exam, but the entire module, which would eventually lead to re-scaled grades or at the very least lenient marking.
