UBU students believe:

As first years on placement, we believe that we have been used as Guinee pigs in the new reflection mark scheme. Previous years have only been marked 100% on placement. We believe that the sole purpose of placement is to be marked on our practical skills rather than being marked on our reflection.

Our reflection is not an accurate representation of the skills gained on our work placement. The topics that are given to us do not relate to the patients we see on placement which is why we should only be marked on our placement and not our reflection.

Other reasons why we should be marked on our placement:

  • No support on reflection from university and mentors
  • How can you be marked on 2.5 hours a week reflection assignment compared to 225 hours unpaid on each practical placement
  • This does not facilitate students with disabilities who shine more in practical than academically
  • Mentors are meant to provide support for students on placement on their reflection assignments, but mentors are either too busy, don’t have the time to sit down with us to go through our reflection or most importantly, don’t have enough knowledge of the topic in question. This concludes that there is no support on reflection assignments at all, which is marked at 100%, whereas placement is marked on pass or fail
  • Mentors do not take into consideration of students who may suffer from learning disabilities such as students with dyslexia
  • Students with disabilities do not get the required work before lectures/seminars so that it can help them prepare
  • Why are we being marked on a piece of reflection when it is based on our own views. We as students believe that we should not be marked or not have a mark scheme to mark our reflection when the assignment is totally based on our own views. There should not be a right or wrong as it based on our own views
  • Other universities are only marked on placement

 

WE SHOULD SOLEY BE MARKED ON PLACEMENT AND NOT ON REFLECTION!!!!!!!!!!!
