I am increasingly getting this with undergraduates - students who only want to be praised and told how amazing they are, rather than receiving balanced feedback on their work and having errors corrected. Often it is the students who are getting low 2:2s or 3rds, believe that they are entitled to a 2:1 and won't engage with tuition at all. They then put in formal complaints because we "haven't given" them the tuition and support they needed to get a 2:1. Verbal abuse and threatening emails from students are becoming normal.
There is also a common misconception among students that 'reasonable adjustment' for disability should mean us adding marks and increasing their classification to 'compensate' them for their disability (which is often self-declared with no evidence being provided to the disability service when requested). At university level, reasonable adjustment for disability is things like voice recognition software, screen readers, dyslexia coaching or a mental health mentor; not grade increases. We have to assess all students against the same learning outcomes and assessment criteria regardless of circumstances and adding marks for students who claim to have disabilities would give them an unfair advantage over other students. If there are exceptional circumstances (e.g. hospitalisation, bereavement involving the loss of a close family member) and clear evidence has been provided, then the exam board have some limited discretion for adjustment when a student is on a grade boundary and the student has demonstrated an ability to work to a higher standard at that specific university level/year.
I agree - sadly, my experience too.
