“Hello sir. You gave me a retake.” One of my students sent me a message via WhatsApp complaining about his score.
This is a statement so old in my ears. I have heard it a lot from a few of my students and whenever it’s used, I feel it’s misused. I had to first think of a better response before replying the student. This is what I told him. “The truth is that you don’t deserve a retake. In fact, you deserved an 80% in my paper. However in this world we don’t get what we deserve. We get what we fight for.” He remained silent and never spoke to me again apart from “okay sir 🤣”
In reality, marks are not given. They are awarded according to what the student puts on paper. I keep on wondering why some students always think we just give them marks. Maybe it’s just lack of a better word. What do you think?
Hahaha that response was comprehensive, in fact it was a knockout!
otherwise thank you so much sir for all your efforts to make learning easier for us.
You’re welcome, dear.
This is so wonderful, may God bless the works of your hands 🙏🙏🙏
