The one where I am disappointed in myself – #AA100

essayAfter the elation I felt when I received the results from my TMA03 for AA100, I’m very disappointed in the result for TMA04.  I found it considerably more difficult than the others.  Hubby-to-be had started his new job (considerable disruption considering the shifts) and I wrote it while coming down with a cold and the day I submitted I ended up with a stomach bug.  That being said, can I really blame my poor result on being under the weather?

There were two choices; one focused on English Christianity, the other on Shostakovich and dissent in music.  I, naturally, went for the one on English Christianity.  I figured that, even though I could have answered the latter far better, I would go for the one more closely related to the degree path I have chosen which focuses on medieval to modern social history.  At least, even with a poor result, I have a better idea of how to cope with this type of essay.

TMA04, the largest assignment to date at 1200 words, required far more disciplined organisation.  An essay plan was required; it didn’t have to be identical to the essay, just show a rough idea of how you get from A to B to C.  As I’ve said, I found this assignment far more difficult than the previous one, but at least, following the feedback I have received I now feel confident I know where to go when a similar assignment comes up!

I know where I went wrong; I understand how my results can be improved.  Despite my evident disappointment (I forced Boyo to read out my result) I know this course will not beat me!  I am at the half way point, I’m still averaging at a good pass and I’m only looking forward to the next assignment.


  1. It is one assignment out of how many? You tried your damn hardest hun and you know what you would have done differently. I am so proud of all the hard work you are putting into your course. Don't let this mark keep you down for long, because I know you will do fabulously in your next assignment!xx
