    Headings

    Hi,

    Which one of the following three headings looks best?

    1. Mid-Semester Exams Issues and Problems Raised by the Students of BCS IE
    2. Problems Faced in the Mid-Semester Exams by the Students of BCS IE
    3. Problems and Issues regarding the Mid-Semester Examination Policy
    By the way, if you think that none of them is that much good, please please give me your suggestions.

    Thanks

    Mr. Nutty

    Re: Headings

    I'm not a teacher, but I have worked as a tutor with a nursing student for the last 3 years, from before her baccalaureate and on into her Master's. In a session just this afternoon we were discussing headings for assignments, looking over several for ideas. Of the three you present, my choice would be for number three. It is short and concise. It explains the subject matter with clarity and without awkward phrasing, although I'm wondering why "of BCS IE" was left out of that option.

    Re: Headings

    I like 3 for the same reasons...but it sounds like it is written by an academic for the Faculty, as if 'there might be administrative problems'; or, 'our policy is discriminatory'
    If it will be automatically understood that this report is from the student perspective, then it's not an issue.

    I do want to keep that part in the 3rd option also, but don't know how it can be used in it. Can you give me an idea. please.?

    Would "BCS IE: Problems and Issues regarding the Mid-Semester Examination Policy" be an acceptable option?

    Re: Headings

    Let me be very clear. Yesterday, we had a session in our class, in which we students discussed our individually faced problems with our English Teacher. He asked me to make a table consisting of three columns, namely, Student's Name, Problem Areas and Teacher's Suggestions. Actually, he didn't tell me the headings and names of columns, I have suggested them myself. He just asked me to write the problem next to the name of a student. I am not sure whether the headings and names that I have choosen are appropriate or not. I am copying the whole table below to be clearer in dipicting you the situation. Please have a look at it for mistakes and oddities.


    Problems regarding the Mid-Semester Examination Policy



    Student's Name -----------------------Faced Problems---------------------Teacher's Suggestions

    Miss. Rose-------------------- Time Management------- To be filled in by the teacher

    Miss. Sarah--------------- Encumbered with a lot of assignments, and didn't---- Same
    ----------------------------have enough time to prepare for the exams

    Mr. Matt -----------------The pace of the class caused difficulties. ------------Same

    Mr. Nick------------------- Couldn't keep pace with the -----------------------Same
    -------------------------class, beause of late admission

    Mr. Martin ---------------- Lack of Concentration -----------------------------Same
    ------------------------------- Lack of Ideas

    Mr. Austin------------- Couldn't understand the examination policy------------- Same

    Mr. Richard -------------Wanted some day gaps for preparation ----------------Same

    Mr. John --------------------------No problems-------------------------------Same



    P.S. I haven't stated all the students' problems, for I realize you won't have enough time to go through all of them.

    Thank you

    Mr. Nutty

    None of these problems sound like problems related to the examination policy.
