Petition for re-marking Financial Accounting 2 assignment
Dear: Professor Martin Broad – Head of school
CC: Professor Collins Ntim - Head of department
Dr Oliver Marnet – Director of program
We are students of the course Msc Accounting and Finance 2016-2017
We would like to formally appeal against our assignment scores of module Financial Accounting 2 taught by Mr. Richard Cartwright during semester 2. Since the release of results are much lower than what we originally expected, almost of us got around 50 with high number of students receiving a marginal fail. After reading the feedback from our lecturer for our assignment, we think it is still not really convincing us with the grade he marked.
For many of us, it is the lowest score we have got in our whole student life and we believe that this score might affect our result of Msc course and will not reflect our overall ability. We were all really hard working, since the coursework is a bit strange for us, we were required to write a professional report for a movie of ICAEW and since many of us are young people who don’t have much working experience, we had to try really hard to understanding so many practical contexts in the movie. We all thought this assignment is very interesting and challenging and we did it with our enthusiasm. Generally speaking, it was a assignment that took us a longest time and much effort to do in comparison with other assignment, but the score is lowest. Moreover, after reading the feedback from Mr Richard and comparing with the requirement for the assignment, we believe that he might not take everything into consideration.
The results are released few days before final exam with very low scores that make all of us feel panic, and add much more pressure and stress for our final exam.
For your reference, we attach the content and requirement of assignment here. In our opinion, there are some points we want to emphasis:
- difficult level of this assignment
- unclear criteria and lack of specific advice. Consequently, lack of convincing feedback (for example: when he said: not enough advice for board of directors or not enough analysis, but we all don’t know what is “enough”)
- in term of word limitation, we are only allowed to write 2,500 words, but the requirements seems to be too much in comparison with words limitation, including executive summary, introduction, analysis of corporate governance, financial accounting issues, recommendation, conclusion. therefore, it is really a big challenge for all of us to get the required depth and details analysis when there are so many issues we need to cover.
“Your coursework brief relates to the ICAEW’s False Assurance film which is available to view on BlackBoard.
Each student group must prepare a 2,500 word professional report providing the Board of Directors of D-Merton analysis and advice as to the Financial
Accounting and Financial Reporting implications of the events that occur within the company film.
The film is split into four parts, with many of the themes recurring throughout. Though each group member may initially wish to be responsible for a part of the film, it is recommended that each section is not looked in isolation. Groups may wish to appoint one group member as being responsible for integrating the findings of each group member into a final coherent report.
You are reminded that this is intended to be a professional report and should be presented as such, with an executive summary, introduction, the report findings and conclusion. However, any resources used should be referenced using Harvard referencing in accordance with University policies.”
In sum, we all hope a reconsideration for our assignment grade.
Thank you for taking the time to review our request
