I think I passed my LAST exam for my course.

Except it was a bit of a tricky exam, so I am not 100% sure.

I find out my results in mid December. Omg!! So nerve racking!!

Results for 2nd assignment came through. With my calculations I just missed out on a high distinction.  I'm still happy with the distinction considering that I didn't enjoy the unit overall.

I had a credit pass which is ok considering I failed one assessment and was just off a distinction.

Ditto, cnp.

I enjoyed the content, but not the subject (if that makes any sense). The first assignment IMO was quite sketchily graded and the second assignment was really haphazard.  With my Distinction for this subject, I'm still keeping my HD average........

Two HD's here. I'm totally over the moon - I usually just miss out on HD's and this term I've had so much going on especially with fertility treatment and the stress resulting from that, trying to juggle two jobs and a volunteer position - to add uni ontop was a massive struggle. So considering the circumstances of this semester and the fact I got better marks than any previous semester .... proud as punch!

Well done peeps. Only 11 days to go until I find out my results...

#17 UpsyDaisy

Posted 05 December 2012 - 06:55 AM

Well done on some amazing marks so far. Good luck to those that are waiting.

My results for the year are: 5 x D's and 2 x C's. One of the D's is a 2 credit point unit. I can never put in my full potential. It's not possible and I have stuffed up some HD's with bad exam marks - in fact the two credits were HD's.

I am very happy overall though!

Good luck everyone x

Annoying when this happens, isn't it.

Luckily for me, even though grades when down in my subject, I still kept my HD.

I like the academic transcript at the University of Newcastle because it shows both your grade and the actual score. Deakin and RMIT did not do this.

I wish all unis did this because it is a far better indication of your performance than just a simple letter, or combination of letters.
There is such a big gap between some grades too. I prefer a WAM to a GPA as this is much more precise in illustrating your performance in a course.

Sorry to rant.

I have to wait until the 18th to get my results...... so frustrating considering I handed in my last assignment at the end of October!!!  ohmy.gif

I only did one topic this semester which was a hardy, three assignments and a total of 84.2 so a distinction, missed out on a HD by .3, I hate that!
