lmk if i should do anything about this because idk if its worth wasting time over since my uni clearly doesn't care about us.

So this year we had to do an internship at a company and write a report about our experience, i did that and i thought it was quite good, but my supervisor gave me an N/A(meaning its inadequate so id have to fix it and resubmit). (if i fail a second time id have to re-do the internship and the year)

I messaged him about it because i was confused what i could have done wrong, and he got back to me and told me he forgot to send my feedback and we can meet to discuss my feedback. We met and it was only small things i needed to change, but i also made sure to ask him if theres anything else i need to fix because for me its not enough to just pass i need a good grade obviously. He said we will schedule another meeting before the second opportunity deadline to go over my changes before i submit.

He did not schedule anything so i reached out to him to schedule a meeting and he didnt respond so i had no choice but to submit hoping everything was ok.

two weeks go by i havent heard anything and i havent recieved a grade so i reach out again asking if everything is okay with the assignment. No response. Another week goes by and i want to email the supervisor of the module but i wait for the full week to end just to give him a chance maybe hes late with the grading.

Nothing, i send the email which is basically saying i havent gotten a grade or heard back from my supervisor. is it possible to have someone else look it over before the grading deadline and the module supervisor responds, saying she'll talk to him. This was yesterday when she responded and today i get a grade of 6.6 and no message from the guy saying oh sorry i forgot to send the feedback or i missed your emails.

Obviously i had a breakdown over this grade because while it is passing its not the grade i wanted, and he actually graded incorrectly on the rubric so i think he just rushed it or was annoyed i got the school involved. I dont know if i should waste time asking for a regrade because of the fact i passed and my uni doesn't really care about us enough to make sure we're happy with our grade

i also wanna add im not EU and my uni is in the netherlands so while everyone else pays 2k a year i have to pay 10k so my parents are spending so much for me to deal with BS lecturers who cant be bothered doing their job on time.

Im stressed because i never know what is good enough with these people, i put so much effort into the assignments but even the lecturers cant agree on the rubric so they grade it based on their own opinion so you really can never win.

Email them and explain the situation. You are paying for education and the opportunity to learn, they should be providing that to you. And initiative is usually well-received in academic settings. Especially if you can see the mistakes on the correction grid.

The worst case scenario is that they can provide some insight on the grading and your grade will remain the same right?

i would let it go, its just one grade inbetween all the others and you sound like you're in a bad place mentally. This grade doesnt define your whole future, no grade does. I hope you'll feel better soon.

yeah but the worst case scenario also includes me getting more stress on top of my other assignments fighting an incompetent teacher, and most of the staff at my shcool doesnt care about the grade as long as its a pass

i had a similar situation with one of my classes recently and instead of trying to argue it, i talked to my therapist about it. honestly getting experience of a situation like this and learning ways of coping with yourself will be super beneficial in the future. workplaces are and will be unfair in some situations, and i try to tell myself that its the overall experience that counts, not the grade or how other people see my work.

I agree with what Toraix is saying too, like if this is gonna make it harder for you then it's not necessarily worth it. If its gonna make you more stressed and your grade is passing then it may not be worth the chase. But your frustration is valid and it sucks that you were treated unfairly
