Rules, Rules, following Rules ...

There are rules, then there are the followers of the rules - often with aplomb, style and a lack of imagination. As senior verifier I have the privilege of arbitrating appeals and assessment decisions. This is an infrequent occurrence - most centres accept decisions, written or verbal.

Yet of the many that appeal, it is incredibly rare that I would uphold their appeal and support their claim. The majority of those who appeal, have gotten it wrong, often badly wrong then get tied up in their own misunderstanding when putting together their complaint.

The issue is - because they did not 'get it' in the first instance, they are in the situation that they now face. Worse is they try to cite rules that do not match the situation (nor do we actually know of) - while attempting to make their case.

When it comes to verification, Occam's Razor applies. Rather than taking the route to simplicity, they are set on trying to make the process more complex than it is.
