Whenever exam season is coming, one of our main duties is to main invigilate our exam paper or somebody else's exam paper. If it is our paper, it would not be boring because student could ask question and we are qualified enough to answer it. However, if somebody else's paper..eeeiii..boringnya..dah la tak kenal sangat student and it is not our paper. The invigilation duty becomes so technical..no human touch at all!
I am always looking forward to invigilate my paper. I will write a notice outside and inside my office, i will set an alarm in my HP about it...this to make sure that I will not miss it. Any conference, seminar, workshop will defintely be set aside during examination and marking weeks. I strongly believe that my studnets need me at the exam hall, physically and mentally. Physical- I MUST be there. My presence would actually motivate them to answer the question. Sometimes, they would ask me question; my comment on the question would relieve their confusion..or may be they dont ask question but I smile at them or wish them good luck..I am sure this small gesture would create wonders to them, mentally or emotionally..
Having said all this, I am so so geram and upset whenver I hear (or see in the minutes meeting) that any one of my colleagues who did not turn up at the exam hall at all..with no reasons! No M.C.! Where are you? Do you think that your duty ends whenever your lecture and tutorial end? Dont you want to see your "children's" faces? This is a total IRRESPONSIBLE lecturer/teacher.. Worst still, if he also submit the exam result late and give problem to the stduents later on.
I always try my best to give my exam result on time..always try my best to protect their rights so that Allah will protect mine.. what goes around comes around..
