It is an awfully good thing that I can write well where it counts, apparently: law school final exams, personal statements, cover letters and seminar papers (notice what I did thar with the proper comma use in a sequential list with more than three items? I'm not sure tho, maybey i was suppozed to use a semi-colon instead lolz.)
Holy hell this thread is rife with exam period moodiness. Students who didn't check the contents/format of the exam to help allocate their time wisely deserve what they get. Time management is something that most law school exams test. The extra instruction pages given to the first students were only unfair insofar as they required those students to take one extra (and pretty minor) mental step in deciding how to allocate the time than was required of the students who did not have the extra instruction pages. I don't think that is enough of a difference in requirements to warrant special grading procedures.
Nor would including duplicate pages, etc. However, I think scewing with the format is a different issue. I agree that the first thing a student is expected to do when he/she gets an exam is to allocate time appropriately. Making that process more difficult/confusing for students might well have an impact on their performance. On that basis alone, I think it's unfair.
