My four avid readers might recall a couple of weeks ago I was writing and subsequently cutting the end-of-course OU assignment. Initially I thought it went ok, then each time I had cause to look at it I found more errors and mistakes, I thought it wasn't long enough, it didn't make sense, I'd left too much out and so on...

Every time I referenced the marking criteria my expectations dwindled. It was all getting a bit crap in my head.

This wasn't totally a surprise to me, as I wrote it in a rush having applied Japanese Manufacturing Principles and was writing on the train, late at night and while I should be listening to talks in a conference.

Today I got the results - I'd braced myself for a roughly 50% and wasn't overly stressed by this as I only need 40% (thanks to the other marks I had in the past). I almost left the email closed - if I can't read it, it can't hurt me...

Finally, here is the group's results.
Min 47
Max 76
Average 62
2 Merits, 2 Clear Passes, 2 Bare Passes AND NO FAILS (great).

And me? Yep - 76 :-) :-)

I have a Crunchie here - I might just eat it in a bit to celebrate!

Ta :-) If I add that mark to the results of my finals (many, many years ago) I nearly get to 100 ;-)

Well done you! Is that a Merit then? Are you carrying on for the next 2 years?
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: October 7th, 2005 10:48 am (UTC) (Link)
It was a a Merit - no idea if I'll get one overall.

I don't have any guarantee of a job after March, let alone funding for more study - it's another reason to get a job with the DWP, then try and persuade them to pay for it :-)

Good plan! I'm sure the newly upgraded post will be advertised soon. Maybe. Unless HR have gone into hibernation or something.

I'm hoping as soon as it's out the grapevine will let me know ;-)

Well done. Just remember that writing assignments is like creating works of art. It's important to know when to stop, or you'll never finish tinkering.

Congratulations. So will you be out celebrating tonight?

Re: Yay!

Alas not - I'll be in revising for the end-of-course exam, which is a week next Monday :-/

The JIT system is one I always apply to my submissions. Sadly, it's not quite perfected yet...
