Roar News reports that the KCL Assessment Sub Board, following an intervention from the UK government, will approve Sue Grey’s essay extension with unprecedented haste, although she never requested an extension.
Grey is understood to be devastated by not being allowed to hand in her essay on time. She told Roar News, ‘I wrote my essay [“Party Animals: Inside the Great Cake Ambush at Number 10 Downing Street”] with a day or two to spare. I had my essay all referenced, proofread, pages numbered, ready to upload to Keats. Sadly, for reasons I can’t go into, the vagaries of circumstance conspired to divert me from my track. Instead, I have to fill in a KCL mitigating circumstances form in order to get a guaranteed extension. All this makes me think they don’t want to read my essay for some reason. Maybe my essay was deemed too critical. It’s just ridiculous, and unjust.’
By all accounts an exemplar student, Grey has conducted quality qualitative research, with exhaustive interviews. The 2500 word essay is worth 60% of the marks for students taking the ‘6P1SS Satire Studies’ module. The compulsory module, held in collaboration with the department of politics, was the least favourite part of her
job course, she said.
However, due to administrative error, Grey’s mitigating circumstances can only be approved after the original deadline, rendering the extension useless. Therefore her work may never be read in its entirety. A KCL insider who wishes to remain anonymous revealed “I hasten to add much more”.
