I’d forgotten all about college my exam results until i logged on tonight to bebo and saw all of my friends talking about them…
So i logged on to the college website to get my results online…. i’d mentioned before maths was a dodgy one… hit or miss. I don’t bullshit either so when i say it’s hit or miss i mean it.
I got 24% in maths overall 🙁 A real disappointment… unfair imo. I’ve no problem failing, but i should have gotten a good 5-10% higher than what i did get. Still would have failed with under 35% anyway, but still, attempt marks mustn’t have been given to me… maybe because i highlighted a mistake in the paper and said i couldn’t answer it because it didn’t make sense
We’ll never know… anyway, i’ve been ‘approved to progress’ to year 2. It means i just have to repeat Maths in August… watch me nail that exam 😉
I can’t risk getting just 40%… it backfired on me last time, so now i’ll do what i normally do and actually do some study, test myself and come out with 60-70% without killing myself, but having done *some* work… (for those last exams i did zilch).
Anyway, for semester 1, i got a 71% average… semester 2, i got a 54% average. Drop of 17%. Here’s why…
Semester 1, i worked a bit, did some study for exams etc… Semester 2 was cruise control and very much a case of 40% will do. The difference in attitude came directly as a result of being told there was NO incentive to get more than 40%… it didn’t mean anything. We just had to pass and that was that 🙄
So of course i’ll blame the system, it’s the easy way out for me 😉 But to prove that is indeed what happened, i’ll have to nail this repeat Maths exam in August and that’s exactly what i plan on doing.
Don’t worry though, BeerChief takes priority above all else. It has done for the past 6 months and that’s possibly another reason why my maths mark wasn’t higher 😉
There’s some sort of consultation / advice etc.. stuff on this Friday in the college which i’m advised to go to but i think i’ll skip it 😎 I don’t need someone to tell me that i have to repeat an exam and that i have to work to pass 🙄 I certainly don’t want to have to drive for 2 hours and waste the whole day over it…
It’s a nuisance i didn’t want or need but that’s life… i’ll pass it next time around…

Yeah i done the same as you, i only failed maths i got 26 so i will definitely be pulling out the notes for the repeat in august 😀 i think that i am going to go in on Friday though just to look over my paper and see where i went wrong!
Yeah i know i thought i had done alright 😕 obviously not
ah grand, at least i wasn’t the only one and you thought you did all right too! he must have marked it very hard… ah well… i’ll be seeing you in august so!
How the hell did I beat you in Databases? lol I got 66 and was fretting I’d fail! :O
You beat me beacuse i didn’t try 😉 66% or 40% they both mean the same thing 🙂
And 35% in maths – that’s just taking the piss – how lucky can you get!!!
