You have all failed!

The University of Manchester recently had to apologise after it sent an email to students telling them they had all failed. The mail told dozens of chemical engineering students on a master’s programme that they were being relegated to a bachelor’s course. A correction was quickly sent 8 minutes later! The first email was sent out at just at 1pm on Thursday and read: “I regret to inform you that you have failed to meet the academic requirements of the MEng programme. You have not achieved the required year mark average.”
