Dear Assistants and Tutors,
having had the outage at Uni and thus the very unfortunate schedule delay for the project, you kindly gave us 3 more days to get finished with the last project.
Sadly, it looks like most of us are still going to “pay for it” since the schedule for the tests remains the same, thus, basically rendering the previous additional time ineffective in not only my eyes but also in the eyes of many other students. I understand that staying in schedule is very important. However, I would have wished for a smoother return to the normal schedule by providing at least 1 day more for the next project and finally returning back to normal schedule 1 week later.
I ask this to be kindly taken into account not only for private reasons but also because for many others students with whom I have talked and got stressed-out/panicky questions about the project. The deadline seems to me to be somewhat unrealistic provided the reasons above and additional ones like: New language to learn, new style of coding to learn, learning to get to know a completely new technique (writing test-suites).
It would be nice if the deadline was postponed for 1 day. Many students are afraid of speaking out but I think they are feeling the same or at least a somewhat similar way.
Thus, I would find 1 day more for the test-suites reasonable and then returning back to the normal schedule.
It would be very kind if this request would at least be heard by the orginizing parties for the server tests.
Thanks for your reply in advance!
