I don't like the idea that I have achieved an 'average' result.
Today I received my mark for my first 'writing' task at uni. I only achieved 13/20 which was the average result. The tutor advised that the marking system was extremely critical and she felt it was over harsh. Her comments to us 'off the record' were that she would have given us all at least one grade higher, but she had to stick to the course guidelines.
So here I sit digesting my '5' in writing and realise that I really don't like the course. It is not because of the grade (well not totally), but rather due to the fact that the 'Nazi writing police' have taken over. My blog post on 'Writer's block' wasn't bad, but there were numerous grammatical errors which I didn't pick up and probably wouldn't have, even if I had proof read it a hundred times. I am just not that particular.
Next task is another blog due on 12th April, I wonder if I will be able to improve or will this be the course that I just get a credit for and move on to the next one. I will certainly give it as much effort as I can, but will I give enough to satisfy the criteria.
