University of South Africa [UNISA]eng2602 examination results october/november

Good day.

To whom it may concern.

Hope this email reaches you in the best of health.

I am hereby emailing to formally voice my thoughts and opinions regarding the UNFAIR marks with the ENG2602 examination marks for the October/November period.It has come to my attention that MANY students, if not many then MOST of the students have obtained a supplementary exam/ supplement for this particular module. Many students are NOT HAPPY as NO PROPER SUPPORT was given. Many tips were given by the lecturers, which we all followed but to no avail MANY of US have STILL FAILED OR SUPPED. This is rather absurd and shocking! With the information that I received this is the ONLY module where MAJORITY of students who no matter what they do, work extremely hard, pull an all nighter still manage TO FAIL or SUPP and not EVEN PASS. Surely this says that something is not right somewhere. Secondly, our assignment marks are not received on time and it is received after we write. While the lecturers may say we must follow their guidelines in the Tutorial 201 and 202 how are we supposed to FIND OUR MISTAKES in OUR ASSIGNMENTS if it has not been marked and given back to us? We the students of ENG2602 demand that something be done with this module at this moment in time AND for future students. As this is a module that is holding many students back from their degree. It is not fair to keep on taking money from the students by making us fail and holding our degree back. While i do consider that Level Co-ordinator, Deputy Level Co-ordinator and Lecturers of this module don't mark examination scripts or do not work in the examination department, i urge you to please take into consideration your students complaints, thoughts and opinions and investigate this module and matter and provide us with feedback as soon as possible.

If this matter is not resolved, many students will be taking this up with the Dean

    Dear students

    I can relate on so many levels, I registered for this moduel in 2017 wrote it and got a sup, re-write it on may/June 2018 failed It and now is expected to write it for the third time tomorrow, and without a doubt I'm 100% sure the lecturer is going to find multiple mistakes and I might get a sup again, causing this to hold me back from optaining my degree yet another year.

    Unfortunately we may not be university lectures or may have studied AP English classes to write an above university level essay and analyse unforseen text we are not yet experts.

    Sadly nobody at Unisa has addressed this on going problem for the past few years.

    @MissAF I echoe the sentiments relating to ENG2602. In the October /November 2018 exam I spoke to a student and it was a supplementary paper. She said it was worse than the exam she wrote and she said that while she's waiting on her husband to get her she'll find a quiet place to cry. Today i received my results and i passed ENG 2601 and ENG 2603 but failed ENG2602. I applied for admission to do PGCE and unfortunately with this shocking results i will only be able to hopefully do my PGCE in 2020. Today i sat with tears in my eyes at Parow campus. Im 49yrs old and i struggled very hard and sacrificed to complete my NDP modules and now this.
    Please can the Dean look into this and what avenues are there that i can pursue in order to register for PGCE before the closing of the registration period.

    Dear Zakiyyah,

    I echo your thoughts above on ENG2602. This is the very module holding me back from my degree. I had registered for this in 2016, received stellar marks for my assignments and failed the exam dismaly. I had to re-register for this in 2017 and lo and behold when it came to the exam, no success. I am an avid reader and I work extremely hard at attaining good results. This module has impossible outcomes to achieve in a two hour span. The ability to complete two well formulated essays on unseen content is rather absurd. The is no time to proof read or edit, hence the work presented is sub par to the assignments and many students fail. I believe we should contact the Dean directly as there is clearly a problem.

    Good day, Im with you 100%! I have done 15 subjects, Ive got 7 distinctions, I passed ENG1501, and to my disbelief
    I failed ENG1502 with 45%, and failed my Supplimentary exam with 44%. I was very very positive after my sup exam.
    I was shocked to find I had failed again with less marks. Also most people in my group on my unisa for ENG1502 were re-writing this subject, many people more that twice and so many people obtain 45% or 44%. I requested a copy of my first paper via the correct channels, I mailed UNISA, I received no reply, I have proof of how any times I asked, so I couldnt even check my paper to see where I made the mistakes.
    We really need exam papers to be re-checked by a 3rd party, something is not right.
