The marking. Oh the marking. I don't know if its just the ridiculous deadlines or the sheer amount of assignments and exams to mark (100+ students in some classes), but now I'm starting to understand all lecturer's pain. Especially when they're expected to conduct their own research, apply for grants, and manage Honours, Masters and PhD students. And I've only had to mark ~60 assignments, just the once! Phew!
