My first year results finally arrived this morning, and I’ve…
passed every module!!! 😀
I was a little worried that I may not have passed everything and would have to retake at least one module exam, but it looks like I’ve done better than I thought. In fact, in Java programming I got 90% and Key Skills for Computing Professionals I got 95%!
Although I only got 37% in one module, despite it being below the pass mark of 40% I was still given credits for it, which presumably means that the pass mark was lowered, which is good. However even if that wasn’t the case I should have still been fine – you can get away with only 35% in one module if your average is 45% or more. My average was 64.8% :).
As I said earlier in the week, I was expecting my mark in Web Technologies to be low, and, indeed, it was (47%), so I’ll need to take that up with my lecturer as I’m sure I’ve done better than that. But at least it’s not a high priority now – had I been in a situation where those extra marks would have made a difference between passing and failing then obviously I’d have been more anxious to get it looked at.
Anyway, I am now very relieved, and looking forward to going back in September to start the second year :).
