Results are in, M256 and M253 are over and I have a Dip Comp!!

So I got my results today from the Open University for M256 and M253. In M256 I scored a grade 2 Pass (seems to be the going grade for me so far!) with 88% OCAS(Overall Continuous Assessment Score) and 77% OES (Overall Examinable Score) so not quite meeting the 85% OCAS and 85% OES needed for a distinction but still a 2:1 which I am happy with all things considered.

In M253 I scored a Pass with a mark of 63% in my OES which I am happy with, as most of you will know this course is a pass fail course so I did what I needed to do to get the job done and I think that really sums up how I approached the whole course and not just the OES component. Its a shame really as I paid good money to be on the course.... For me it was one of those courses that I would never had looked at had it not been compulsory for my degree, although as you will see from my blog, it wasn't nearly as bad as I was expecting!

Still I now have a Diploma in Computing which I am more than proud off and I am stepping into my Penultimate year of Study with the OU. My course texts for M362 arrived last week and I got straight through unit 1 on the evening they arrived, its great to get back into studying after a couple of months rest, although I am under no illusions as to what will be expected of me in the coming 12 months.

I hope everyone achieved what they wanted to achieve/deserved! Good luck with your 2010 studies!

Congratulations on the Diploma!

I only started studying towards my computing degree last year and am looking forward to getting my certificate in mathematics and computing next year :-)
