Pending Results

In two days time, I will be getting the results of my first year. Unlike most degrees, whose first two years are made up of a Higher National Certificate/ Higher National Diploma, my first year foundation is only about 10% of my final marks. Which seems miniscule when you realise just how much work you have put in, then you submit only 2/3rds of it. I presume 40% of my marks are next year (where there are mini dissertations of 5,000 words per assignment to submit) and the final 50% is in the final year (assignments are 10,000 -12,000 words long).

After not thinking much about it much over the past month, now I am starting to worry. It is not about passing - I know I have done that. I just want to pass with good marks. Plus, I have not read anything much; in fact I have revelled in mindless TV. As soon as the marks are in, I will have to knuckle down with Dickens. Really should have read more fun stuff (I shelved 'Alias Grace' and started on C.S Lewis biog, only to stall with that too); watched art programmes on Young British Artists and history programmes on Caravaggio instead (oh and being a bit of a Mouse Potato too).

Passing time...eating left-over chocolate cake and worrying.
