M362 and M363 Results

The results were made available last night and I am overall quite pleased with how I did.

M362 I scored 73% in the exam giving me a pass 2, I was initially a little disappointed with this grade until I looked at how all the other students faired with 46% of all students who sat the exam scoring less than the 40% minimum. This proved to be a particularly difficult exam but I'm glad I was able to keep up my grade in the pass 2 region.

M363 was very similar in score with 74% giving me a pass 2 again, students in general seemed to have a fairly evenly spread distribution of scores, with 9% getting distinctions and 19% getting pass 2's the rest of the grade ranges followed in the teens.

I enjoyed the study last year and have just registered for my next lot of courses. After seeking advice from the OU they have suggested I don't study 2 level 3 courses and my final project at once, which is a shame really as it adds another year on to my studies but does mean I won't let my degree suffer as a result. I have gone for M366 Natural and Artificial Intelligence and M359 Relational Database theory and design.

Hi Simon,

Well done on your results - Grade 2 is good and should be rightly pleased with that. Your next year's study looks to be interesting. I have the pdf's for M359 if they are of any use to you - so that you get an early look at them (they are from the first presentation of M359 - so may have changed slightly since then).

I'm nearing the end of S194 - which I have thoroughly enjoyed as a gentle way back to studying and as a complete change from computing.

I'm about to sign up for M363 and S197 - steepening the curve before doing two L3's after that.

Hi Simon,

Thanks for the message, I'm glad s194 went well for you. I'm looking forward to AI over databases, AI was my what looks interesting choice and DBs was my practical one.

I'll drop you an e-mail re the PDFs.
