Exam result

Visible to anyone in the world
Edited by Aideen Devine, Friday, 10 Jul 2015, 13:12

Just got my exam result and I have to say I'm very disappointed.  I felt it was the best piece of work I had done the whole year but there you go.  Going by the mark, I don't know any more now than I knew when I submitted my first assignment and going by my overall score I actually know less now about writing than I knew when I began. So I've done a whole year of writing and studying and I haven't learned any more than I knew when I started. 

The tutor had remarked several times during the year, not to get too hung up on the marks but that's easy for a tutor to say when the marks count towards our degree and they already have theirs.  

A double disappointment as today is my birthday, it's just killed the mood completely.  I should have went for politics as it seems I have wasted an entire year.

Aideen - many commiserations - I know just how much it hurts when things don't go as planned in academia. How far have you got to go before you finish your degree?

I do hope you'll hang on in there. Will you be able to make good the damage on the next course do you think?
