Students request for an essay extension due to “WW3 poppin’ off” declined.
A third year history student’s rather reasonable request for an extension on their essay has been harshly declined. It seems that the administrative office of the School of History, Classics and Archaeology do not deem the recent international events to be that significant, at least not significant enough to impact upon one’s studies.
The history student in question, Taylor Amstell had this to say: “I simply cannot concentrate on historical events of the past, and prioritise them, over that of the recent events such as the Russian Sukhoi Su-24 jet being shot down by Turkish F-16 fighter planes on Tuesday morning, it’s all poppin’ off”
A representative of the School of History, Classics and Archaeology has commented, “Although things are rather tense internationally, studies should take priority. They are a future investment, even if the future is looking a bit bleak right now.”
