I was taking this Multicultural Society class and had to answer these four long-ass essay questions. My handwriting is similar to a doctor's and my answer sheet almost ended up getting tossed to the trash can because my prof couldn't read my answer.

She even wrote at the bottom of the page that she had trouble reading it.

1. For not writing the citations just like Harvard Referencing System, and
2. For not paying attention to the instructions on doing the assignment. We were asked to find vision, mission, and business process of two companies and <i>compare</i> them but I did not read the instructions thoroughly so I didn't analyze and compare them. /sighs

In my Fluid Mechanics lab we had to turn in 20 page lab reports every week and the TA, instead of grading us on actual relevant concepts and work, would grade on formatting. He legit deducted points if the titles of graphs weren't beneath the graph and bolded before the colon and italicized after it.

for answering "insect" on the question "mention animal that undergoes metamorphosis" in my elementary school days. they want that i answer butterfly or frog... :/

insects undergo metamorphosis too! even though not all... but the teacher does not know that some insects don't do metamorphosis right?

I wrote my name in pen and she took off points calling it "unprofessional". Everything else was typed.

sometimes they don't allow us to have erasures... and when they do right minus wrong? so if there are ten items, and i make one mistake, i get an 8/10 instead of 9. I don't see the point in that at all ._.
