We Say, You Say: Auckland Uni Exams

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Hi Neighbours,

Auckland uni students have spoken out against on-campus exams this year as their overseas counterparts will be able to check notes while they will not be able to.

Those international and domestic students remaining in New Zealand will be completing their exams under supervised conditions. A university email obtained by Stuff showed that overseas students will also be given a 30 minute grace period, in case of any technical faults, with this time able to be used towards the final exam.

Do you think this is fair?

Monday Funny

Andrea from Green Bay

4 people are sitting together on a train journey through Europe. There is a Kiwi fella, an Aussie bloke, a small old granny and a hot Swedish lady. The train heads on through a dark tunnel and a moment later everyone hears the sound of a vicious slap. When the train comes out of the tunnel, the Aussie has a nasty red handprint on his face. Nobody says anything. The small group assumes the Aussie must’ve groped the Swedish lady when it was dark and earned himself a slap. The Swedish lady assumes the Aussie bloke tried to grope me in the dark, missed and groped the small granny who in turn slapped his face. The Aussie bloke assumes the Kiwi fella must’ve groped the hot Swedish lady in the dark tunnel, and she tried to hit him and hit me in the face. The clever Kiwi fella thinks: I’m looking forward to the next tunnel so I can belt that Aussie guy in the face again.
