If he only hoped that people for the strike fail their semesters just because, well, keep wishing, maybe Santa exists after all.
While I understand the logic, you can't seriously expect those who missed tests and homeworks to be granted same mark as those who did it?
Hate to say it, but don't listen to your student association, they are moronic. Fact of the matter is, if you're the only guy in your class that skipped, well, odds are, you're ****ed for that class. If your entire class skipped, thats another story.
A university cannot just pass you 'just because'. It will literally mean that your education is a joke. At best your teacher, IF he wants to, will provide you an extension for homeworks and rework the grading. However...don't be naive, not every teacher will accept it and a lot of students will be unhappy.
For classes you have a final in(most i assume), expect the teacher's who aren't pro strike to bring up material from class to give an edge to those who attended.
Also, the problem with strike is people who werent ready for tests, quizzes and etc missed. A teacher is not stupid, a lot will skip to get extensions, not because of strike, they will not be blindly accepting.
As an example, a few summers ago, there was a conference at SGW, so my class, originally at H got rescheduled to LOY. In consequence, teacher panicked and removed multiple quizzes, and the midterm...leaving us with a 95% final. He wasn't easy on the final.
