A long time since the last post!

Its been a long time since my last post. I haven't been given a minute to write anything!

I have just finished M255 and sat my exam. The exam went well, everything I revised seemed to come up so I was very pleased. I have to wait until December for the results but TMA04 scored 97% so if I can get over 85% in the exam I will have scored my first distinction. I'm just going to have to wait and see though!

I have started M257 which is going fine, I have mainly been focusing on my M255 exam so I will need to redirect my attention to this course and get up to speed. I expect it will be more of the same though. This is my only course until I pick up M256 in January, so it should lead me up to Christmas nicely.

Plenty of first time OU students have been in touch and I'm glad to see some of the old posts are being visited and are of some use. I hope everyone's studies have kicked off to a good start and look forward to hearing how everyone is progressing.

I've got my fingers crossed for you for the M255 exam grade. I'm really looking forward to starting that course in February.

Good luck with your results!

I too had an exam yesterday - it was for M364 and went surprisingly well. It was my last exam before getting my degree, so now I just have to wait and see what I get ;)

S good luck, I hope you get the degree classification that you deserve. How long has it taken you to complete you degree?

Greg, you will really enjoy M255, It is a fantastic course! Keep me updated on how it goes, I'll link your blog when I get home.

Thanks Simon - although I suspect I will probably get a better degree than I deserve!

I started in February 2005 and have motored through as fast as I could, which has meant having no social life for the past 3 1/2 years, and my poor wife has suffered from my almost constant "ssshhh"ing ;)

My course record is as follows:

Just got my results - somehow scraped 2 distinctions on M364 and M450, so I'm going to be offered a 1st class honours degree ;) Time to move to somewhere sunny and work from home with my laptop on the veranda overlooking an ocean view... ;)

Good luck with your results for M255!

Congratulations on your result!! that is incredible and obviously the reward for a great deal of hard work. I'll look out for your profile in next years prospectus!

Merry Christmas.
