Safety net scores

When information was first released about calculating our safety net scores, we were told that it would take into account our first year grades.

While there were arguments for and against using this method, this is what we were told. And people calculated their expected grades based upon it.

Safety net grades were released after exams, not before as promised.

Meaning that students based their attitude towards their exams based upon their estimated safety net score that the university allowed us to calculate.

There may be some students who therefore, had a higher score based on the initial calculation than what they have now been given and therefore have not tried as hard in the exams. E.g. A student told they had 70 on the previous calculations may only have 68 or 70 on the grades we have been given.

Effectively, changing the way safety net scores have been calculated and not releasing this before exams has left students at a detriment.

What can be done to correct this?
