Congratulations everyone!

Not happy with your grades?

Remember: Lecturers do not GIVE grades. Students EARN grades.

Before asking your lecturer for a higher grade, think about how the lecturer calculated your grade. Even one piece of missing work can result in a lower grade. The lecturer has a marking scheme when they mark the final exams, they are looking for certain items to be on the paper before giving marks. You don’t get lots of marks simply because you wrote a lot. Being unhappy with your grade is not a legitimate reason for asking for a grade change. Needing a higher CGPA is not a reason for badgering individual lecturers for higher grades. Just because you submitted an assignment doesn’t mean you will get full marks for it. Submitting work late can also mean a reduction in marks. Lecturers can only mark what is in front of them. They can’t give you marks just because they like you.

Congratulations everyone on an excellently completed course.

We all learned a lot, and became more aware of the variety of social media, and how we can analyse if the social media is effective.

Good luck with your marketing careers!

Feedback on Mid Term Presentations in Social Media Marketing


All presentations have passed and scored highly.

  • All students selected a good choice of media for the product or service.
  • Everyone did an excellent SWOT analysis.
  • There was also a consensus of opinion on the role of ethics and valuing people.

Improvements could have been made by:

  • concentrating on the Guerilla marketing part of the assignment
  • Cutting down the length in terms of words and slides
  • creating more colourful and stylish slides
  • not repeating theory
  • giving analysis
  • not creating a business plan
