With thanks to Tim and his connections at Sydney University, I get the occasional gig at supervising exams within the Economics and Business Faculty. The first one I did was watching over a two hour first year mid-semester exam, and funnily enough I actually knew a couple of people that I was supervising… no leniency towards them but – it’s all very serious work 😛
Today, from 1pm, Tim and I have been watching over two Asian postgraduate students doing a supplementary exam because they missed the original sitting. This three hour exam is proving to be ridiculously loathsome… not bad money I guess for sitting in a small room surfing the net on my laptop and reading the paper with Tim lol But alas, someone has to do the job.
They must have thought we were idiots when we posed for that photo.
