Results day

My Open University K272 course results were published today. I had actually forgotten they were due by tomorrow!

I scraped a Pass 2 ( sort of 2:1 equivalent) which I am pleased with. Not my best result ever, but to be honest I did well to finish the course at all. It was interesting, yet also quite complex to understand what was wanted when writing the essays, as I suppose it was all quite theoretical and subjective.

Anyway now I can get back to some writing, or at least I can in two weeks time when I have finished my accountancy work...

Three notable things:

1. My exam result.

2. Feeling very proud of son 1, who found the courage to go into his old school yesterday and tell the head of year what he had experienced there, in the hope that she can protect one of his friends from bullying.

3. Yet another visit to the dental hygienist, who said my gums were healthier than last time and asked me what I had done differently. All I could think of was that the battery has run out in my toothbrush...

Wow you are even more talented than I first thought! You should be really proud. I know I would be except I don't have any amazing qualifications. Well done!

Cathy said...

Ah, thanks all! Especially to Anne, who was one of those who kept me going when I was wavering badly mid-course...

Congratulations all round!

Good going. As someone with a 2:2, "scraping" a 2:1 doesn't wash!

Anne Brooke said...

Hey, nothing wrong with a 2:2! - a good degree all round!!

Cathy said...

SAHD, I am also the proud owner of a 2:2...which I believe actually indicates being a person who found a reasonable balance between work and play at uni!!

But I suppose that is why I am motivated to try to go at least one better on these varied OU courses, which I study for fun and interest and with the aim of keeping my brain functional. I may or may not end up getting another degree...that is not really my aim or focus right now. But if I were to do so, it would be nice to go one better than what I got at 22!
