Wow. Am I glad this sem is done and over with. It was one of the worst semesters ever – not academically, of course – the honour for that is wholly reserved for this sem, with all its various random nonsense and whatnot.
Anyway, I think this semester was just plain bad because of the six modules worth of stress that I had to cope with, among other things.
I seriously thought I was going to screw up very badly but I think these results are a pleasant surprise (a 4.17 CAP for this semester alone is still very nice, no? 🙂 , and I’m quite happy with how things turned out, because it could seriously have been much worse. I envisioned major Bs everywhere but thankfully the damage was only inflicted on the modules I knew in my heart of hearts were terribly done.
Having said that, I think the only surprise for me came from both the modules I did with Prof Holden – EN3269 and UIS4912. I expected an A- from the former and a B from the latter because I really didn’t know what I was saying at the end when I submitted the ISM.
But I’m happy with the A- and I’m going to ask for a review on the EN3269 paper because I was scoring a solid A- all the way before the exam, which only accounts for 30 – 35% (can’t remember which) of the grade.
Nevertheless, I am looking very much forward to the next semester though, because I think it is going to be slightly less stressful as I am going back to doing five modules.
Plus I think my module choices next sem are very interesting, or rather, things that I will be really interested in – I’m hoping to do a Masters-level module called Politics and Literature, along with Advanced Playwriting.
Most importantly, I am gunning for that second-upper now because I think it is very much within my reach – I just need an A- average, which I have gotten before, and I know I can do it again.
Let’s go lah, next sem. I cannot wait to graduate 🙂
P.S. check out the movement of my CAP over the last seven semesters:
04/05, Sem 1: 3.75
04/05, Sem 2: 3.78 (3.88)
05/06, Sem 1: 3.75 (3.7)
05/06, Sem 2: 3.66 (3.4)
06/07, Sem 1: 3.75 (4.1)
06/07, Sem 2: 3.88 (4.5)
07/08, Sem 1: 3.93 (4.17)
Can see the marked fluctuations hor. I can give you a sem-by-sem analysis even with reasons why and how the CAP fluctuated. Anyway, what I want to see at the end is this:
07/08, Sem 2: 4.00 (4.5)
