Training - Ask IYT
MCA ORALS -FT LAUDERDALE - NOVEMBER 16th -19th
When I was doing my courses 10 years ago (at Warsash) we had people who had come from IYT to sit a last course. The stories shocked me at how the exam procedures went on that side of the ocean. We felt cheated when we heard of open books and exam questions being discussed during exams. At least we felt we were doing things the "right way". I believe and hope that this has changed since those days.
We, as students actually brought the subject up with an MCA examiner that was attending a retirement party at for a teacher at Warsash. After a brief discussion with someone whom we might be sitting across a desk from for a future exam we learned that it was not our business! The same examiner had been on several trips to FLA to "visit the school" and assess (I won't mention the hotels and perks).
Oddly enough the questions about whether the same standards applied to all school really touched a nerve.... Any comments????
