Time, Thy Name is Cruelty

TOA is a four-letter word. No, really. I now know what the most dreaded word facing a 12-year old kid is. E-X-A-M. I was reduced to a 12-year old a week ago. We had to sit for two TOAs, aka Timed Online Assignments, which make up for 50% of our GPA for each module respectively.  [...]
