I was expecting results for the last set of OU modules I took to come in at the end of next week but two modules came back this evening. And I am very pleased. (The rest is behind a cut for boasting.)
The one that I cared about most, Management Accounting
is another Distinction
. I knew I had the chance given my coursework results but I really didn't think I'd done well enough on the exam to match it. "I don't think I've embarrassed myself." I wrote after taking it.
No, I did not. Imagine me doing a victory dance.Engineering the future
(which is the fancy name for an intro-to-engineering module) was one of my optional-credit choices. All I really needed to do for this was pass, and I got a good pass in the 2.1 range, which is more than enough to make me happy.
I've run the numbers and it's actually possible now for me to get a First - if and only if I can keep up this standard on my current year's workload. I've not let myself believe that was possible before, my goal is "a good 2.1", but the dangling prospect of a 1st is ... um well, a bit intimidating really. I'm trying not to want it too much.
(Nothing yet for module number three, which was another optional-credits requirement, and I chose to do Introduction to Financial Services
. It turned out to fit even better than I'd have guessed against management accounting. Like the engineering module, I just need to pass, and I am certain that I have, it's a just a question of by how much.)
