Education is a funny thing. I did OK at school without really pressing myself too hard. I was lazy but still managed to scrape through my O- and A-levels.
I suspect that if I was to redo all these exams now that I’d be able to apply myself so much better and get much-improved marks.
I say this because I’ve now completed three of the five assignments for my Open University module and I’ve somehow managed to achieve 90% and over for each assignment.
I’m rather pleased at that. The course has managed to strike a number of points of interest for me, and this has helped my motivation to learn. I’ve been a little time poor recently but I’ve managed to cram in enough work to achieve these rather decent marks despite my less-than-perfect time-management skills.
I could just not do the next two assignments at all and still pass! They look interesting, though, and I also want to maintain this same level of success.
No doubt later modules will be much harder but this has been quite an encouraging start to my Open University education.
