Well, its that time of the year again when I get my exam results and once again I’m very pleased with the outcome. I achieved a first average this semester making my position a very strong one for doing well in the third year. Individual module grades all floated around the 70 mark, even graphics which was without a doubt the hardest exam I have ever taken in computing.
Surprisingly my lowest mark (66) came in my SY23 module which I felt was one of the easiest exams and one of the ones I was most likely to excel in. Still, a high 2:1 is not to be sniffed at and there may have been some complacency involved resulting in my lower than expected performance. My IS23 result (70) did confirm to me that it is possible to do very well in this module with a minimum of work; this was without a doubt my least revised-for module. Not quite sure why this is, but I’m not complaining at the grade.
On a more serious note these results mean that I’m going into the 3rd year on very good standing and that I can also afford to relax and get a well deserved rest before the start of the new year. I’m also now able to use my various results to choose a good field to do my final year project in, not to mention confirm my module choices for next year now that I know I have the prerequisites. Today is surely a very good day.
