First Class


From this week's Essex County Standard:

I'm glad that our teaching is so much better than it was when I was an undergraduate. I was the only person on the Computer Science degree to get a first in my year; the previous year, no-one did.

Wait a moment, though: if our teaching is so good, why do students continue to give us miserably low marks in the yearly National Student Survey?

Ah, well perhaps it's that students work harder now than they did in my day, so the low marks are a reflection of an all-work-and-no-play culture.

I'm pretty sure that every single student who did Computer Science when I was an undergraduate would get a first if they were students today.
