Is anyone else still waiting?September 25, 2019 at 2:57 pm

Failed. Surprised. I was expecting an A grade.September 25, 2019 at 7:18 pm

Yes there have been some very inconsistent and worrying results this session. I graded a student as an A who got a C and with two students who both did the same topic and organisation: I had him down as a borderline pass and hers as a B. He got the B and she failed so I have no idea what has gone on as this is madness! So you have my sympathy!September 25, 2019 at 9:04 pm
Anyone who hasn’t gotten their email. Make sure to check the junk mail.
I was refreshing my outlook app on the phone to see no new mail and the app had no junk folder.
That’s when I logged on by PC and checked the junk folder and found my email from OBU.September 25, 2019 at 9:43 pm
I also failed and was shocked. I am interested to see the markers response and I will be asking for a remark.September 26, 2019 at 10:32 am

Is this the first time this sort of thing has happened to you?
I achieved a C in mine…..with no point of reference, but I was in a position that my RAP grade would have no affect on my degree classification as long as I passed.
Sounds really concerning though for those that believed they had done well and have failed!, especially as someone with your experience doesn’t seem to agree with the gradesSeptember 26, 2019 at 11:27 am

You will understand that as i have not seen the feedback re the case where I expected the student to get a B, I must at this stage reserve judgment. After all maybe her report did get a B grade but failed on the SLS so she would only be informed that she had failed overall. (The SLS is something where though I offer some help and guidance of necessity should be the student’s own ideas based on their own unique learning and development experience).
However I do have a point of reference regarding the A that turned into a C at the hands of the P38 marker as a student from P37 did the same topic and organisation. The P37 student iIMO was awarded an appropriate grade i.e. a C. If the two reports are compared there is no way their standards are equal. The P38 student did not – to cite the P38 assessment criteria for a C for example for evaluation – do “SOME analysis but a tendency towards description rather than analysis and evaluation” or provide “LIMITED analysis of the context in which the information is gathered or of the organisations’s operations’ – there was extensive analysis and appropriate discussion in the report demonstrating critical thought which should (according to OBU’s own assessment criteria) have led to a higher grade.
Ironically I had said to the student back in May at the time of submission that if it didn’t get an A grade then he would have been robbed by the marker. As it turns out my words were sadly, indeed prophetic!
PS In fact his grade like yours will not have affected his degree classification. He will still get First Class honours but that misses the point that two reports that are of widely differing standards both got a C grade indicating – now to quote Shakespeare – “That something is rotten in the State of Denmark”!!!!September 27, 2019 at 5:33 pm
Thanks Gillian. I’m still hoping I got an A but failed only the SLS essay question 1, because although strengths and weaknesses can be gleaned from my answer, I didn’t explicitly say that these were my strengths and these were my weaknesses.September 30, 2019 at 2:51 pm
I failed and am really shocked. Okay I wasn’t confident about an A but I definitely didn’t expect a fail. Even my senior who had read my report didn’t believe when I first told him of the result. Waiting to get the feedback :/September 30, 2019 at 3:29 pm
Did everyone who failed recieved their feedbacks? I didn’t get one yet.September 30, 2019 at 3:47 pm
I am still waiting :/September 30, 2019 at 4:45 pm
Still waiting for my own feedback too.September 30, 2019 at 7:36 pm
I recevied my feedback and i need to go for appeal as they failed me only in one thing that i chose the wrong comparator. My feedback stated
*2. Application of Accountancy/Business Models Fail
J&P is not a relevant and effective comparator/benchmark. This should have been
apparent from your initial ratio analysis. You should find another more successful
comparator which is not relying on the sale of its land and building to rescue itself.*
As my main organisation was seimens which also turned profitable after years of being in loss by selling its land and building. I chose the comparator who was also trying to turn profitable by the same method. Also these 2 organisations were taken by many students in p37 and they passed.
I passed in everything else. How to i appeal for this?October 1, 2019 at 5:49 am
its 1oct today.. i still havent received my feedback.. it was supposed to be sent by 30sep.. did someone else receive it?October 1, 2019 at 8:14 am
It’s 8:14 BST.. Still waiting for the feedback.October 1, 2019 at 11:04 am
Still waiting for my own feedback too. The email last week said I would receive it by email by yesterday.October 1, 2019 at 12:58 pm
Waiting for feedback too…October 1, 2019 at 1:49 pm
Has anyone received the feedback report for the resubmission of the project? As per the result letter, it was supposed to be delivered on 30th Sept via email. But i have not received any email yet.October 1, 2019 at 4:17 pm
I failed my RR for the second time and i was shocked too. As Giliian has said there has been a very inconsistent and worrying results for P38. I too have not received my feedback. Still waiting. I personally think OBU is taking advantage as the only University offering this undergraduate degree to ACCA students. As students we need to do something about this, for eg @hinatariq used the same comparator used before only to be told its not relevant. It is disturbing and shocking and would want as many students to appeal for a remark. Only wishing OBU had some competition from other Universities in this case.October 1, 2019 at 4:19 pm
Its surely madness.October 1, 2019 at 5:10 pm
True they r treating it as monopoly market. ACCA should step ahead and see what’s going on here. I believe my RAP was far better than some of recent pass RAP still I failed in it.October 1, 2019 at 7:58 pm
Whats the grading criteria for resubmission?October 2, 2019 at 11:49 am
If got it correct it says if you have passed the RR and failed the SLS your grade for the RR will be carried forward however if you have failed both (RR and SLS) you grade will be C nomatter how good you have done the revised reports.October 2, 2019 at 11:55 am
I think you should write them an email. I wrote them an email yesterday enquiring about the feedback. I wrote them another email today following up on the very same email I wrote yesterday and I received my feedback 10 minutes later.
