    Please tell us how many people were using the developer trays and were they all using the same paper as you. How near to exhaustion was the developer. Frequently in a students environemnt, the chemicals get contaminated with splashes from stop or fixer or someone making a mistake and putting a fixed print into developer. Was the print fixed to completion and washed fully afterwards? In other words, you have no way of replicating the exact same conditions in your own set up, so don't expect exact same results.

    If you want blue purple colour, then develop in coldtone developer and selenium tone at around 1:12 dilution. I assume you are using a neutral/cool tone paper and not warm tone.
