Pressure Uneven with Peaks

Pressure Uneven with Peaks

The other disturbing feature of the spread of pressure was that it was found to be uneven with peaks as the result of clashes of assignments due and tests. This problem has been mentioned in both the August 1972, February 1973 and August 1973 Student Welfare memoranda 50% of the students surveyed by the Commerce Faculty committee regarded their workload poorly or very poorly spread. These clashes and peaks reflect poor coordination between and even within departments which probably had not adjusted to the flexibility allowed students by the new degree changes. Even though, Student Welfare advice of better planning and coordination such as date of assignments has been attempted by Science, Law and Commerce and Administration Faculties, the workload remains and assignments and tests can still "cluster". .
