A British student scored zero on the Hand-drawn Module Examination of the Graphic Communication Course because the teacher was unable to open 112 pages of PDF documents submitted by him.

According to British media reports on February 28, Liam Clayton, a 22-year-old senior in the Art Department of the University of Basba, is a university student.

Clayton said that because the school's scoring system could not open the collection of works he uploaded, he scored zero in the hand-drawn module examination, which meant that his final score would be reduced by two grades. In response, the school said that they had warned students to carefully check whether the homework documents they submitted had been uploaded correctly.

Clayton said: "What disappointed me was not that the school told me they couldn't open my portfolio, but that when I tried to solve the problem with my teachers, they refused to take any responsibility, which made me angry and disgusted."

"Nobody gave me any support. I tried to communicate with my teacher, but he told me to shut up. Then I communicated with the head of the department, who ignored me." Clayton said, "Every friend I've talked to about it thinks it's extremely unfair."

Clayton attaches great importance to his achievements at school

Clayton is also a freelance designer, and he recently designed a logo for an aviation logistics company. Clayton, from Devonshire, attaches great importance to his achievements at school, because for him, it is not only a professional attitude, but also his pursuit and love of design.

He told the media: "I am very proud of my work, and it's really unacceptable for me to get zero points by accident."

"Last year, I had the same problem. My PDF files could not be opened in the submission system. At that time, the teacher helped me solve the problem immediately, and I got the score I deserved." Clayton said he was bored now, "because I had to pay for the technical mistakes of the school, and they acted as if it was no big deal." Clayton's original goal in the course of

was to get an excellent result. After the accident, it seemed that he could only pass it.
