QUT to Introduce Absorbent Exam Papers to Reduce Mess Made by Student Tears

In an announcement today, QUT has introduced a new initiative to aid students during exam block. With exams underway, academics from across Queensland have praised QUT for their introduction of absorbent exam papers*.

In a statement released today, this new initiative was designed to make marking easier for tutors. Many tutors and lecturers at QUT have expressed difficulty marking exams as water smudges have forced them to guess whether the student picked A or B.

Many other programs have been trialled and tested. One idea that was thrown around was that invigilators were not permitted to look inside the answer book once a student handed their work in. This was aimed to reduce the sheer anxiety of a student being asked “you finish all the questions” only for it to be fucking bullshit.

This program has been more popular than the other idea suggested. In a controversial move, QUT considered putting an “R U Okay” poster on the front of every exam booklet even though they do not really care.

*Does not apply to creative industries students because what the fuck would they know about exams
