I would’ve posted this last night, but blogspot apparently decided that it needed a holiday.
I've finished my exams. Kinda wasted, I have to say. My last exam should have been one of my best, but it actually turned out to be a great annoyance and semi-upset. All the past years' papers for that module had been very qualitative. So I prepared to answer a lot of qualitative questions, which wasn’t easy for me. I always say that I hate exams that expect you to know the answer. I much prefer exams that expect you to know how to work out the answer.
Anyway, I opened the exam, and it was three mostly quantitative questions and one qualitative question on a subject area that I specifically looked for in the lecture notes, but did not find. So, my exams are over. Fuck.
On the plus side, I did collect my coursework. All through the year they’ve been telling me to collect my coursework when it's been marked, but I naturally left it until the last possible moment. I got my come-uppance though. The mark I’d been emailed for one of my pieces of coursework was 70%, which annoyed me because I knew I could’ve done better. But on collecting it I find that I actually got 89%, which is much better. It had been recorded correctly, so where the 70% came from, I have no idea. On another piece of coursework (that I got 52% for and which was covered in red pen), I found this little comment, which made me smile. I should perhaps put this in my CV:
With my exams done, I took a wander through my university town, and found this poster for just £1.99. Colour me almost happy.
You might be able to make out some of my books if you click and enlarge it. They all look very high-brow from this angle. You can't see all the comics and manga that are just to the right...
