Results are out for H808 and H810
Well, I passed that’s the good new, the less good news are that I am not really satisfied with the results :-S
I admit I haven’t done so much for H810, the time was simply running out, but all the effort I put in H808, night shifts, endless hour, especially for the repository file that need to be an enclosed file, not simply a link to my Mahara eportfolio that I extra started and maintained for this course, just to find out we are not allowed to provide a link to that repository, how unexplainable is that 😕 The results for just do not mirror the time and effort put into it 😦 Unfortunately we will not receive much feedback on that, because I really want to know what the examiner missed, what their critic was to take so many points away. And stupid me, now I have to say ‘wasted’ additional time with the supplementary activities to achieve some extra points. Don’t get me wrong working across the tutor groups was great, but if you have no time, but hope you can push your grade a little and thus spend additional time that you don’t have, and seeing now the results … 😦 The benefit-cost ratio was definitely far out of balance.
Another interesting feature, at least for me, that I almost always end up in the EMA with at least 10 points below my average, it almost seems there is a general rule that EMA’s results needs to be lower than the OCAS.
Ok, some might say I should believe in the Olympic thought, to be in the game, is all that count, or to translate it to our studies, to pass it all that counts, but sorry that does not really count for me, I always aim for the first three places. Sure I passed but if I pass with 84 or simply with 40 still counts as pass, great why did I spend endless hours if it does not make a difference. I should take the day off, although the first assessment for H807 is coming up and I still haven’t done much, but hey pass is pass, I should really be a little bit more relaxed.
We had pretty different interpretation about the meaning of that emoticon in my tutor group , but that’s how I feel right now. We also discussed in H807 social cues. Well, I agree that the internet liberates, that it leads to a greater openness and to greater self-disclosure. Or would I otherwise rant about my results in public 😉
