I had my maths repeat exam today. Fail it, and i’d have to wait until May 2009 to get another crack at it. No way did i want that… i’m the type of person that thinks about big upcoming events on a daily basis – i can’t just put something like that to the back of my mind for a year.
So i was determined to nail this exam today and start 2nd year with a clean slate. Although i won’t get the results for another month or so, i know i passed.
I’ve got between 45%-60% overall by my own scoring. 45% absolute worst case scenario. I’m not usually too far out with my own marking.
I also found out today that we have just 1 more semester of maths to go… so after Christmas, i won’t be going near maths again during my stay in college. Score 😉
I start back to college on September 9th – just over 3 weeks away. Although i don’t really miss it, i’m looking forward to the challenge academically. From day one, my focus will be on getting above 70% in every single exam i have. Above 70% means i’ll stay on course for an honors ordinary degree (yes such a thing exists), plus it’ll enable me to do an extra year at a higher level (honors degree) if i wish – probably in IT management.
If i feel it’s too much work however, or it’s starting to have a negative impact on my online work, i’ll quickly drop my standards and just aim to pass everything and finish with an ordinary degree.
2 years is a long time however… it’s been 2 years since i started my first website and look how far i’ve come… so i can’t say where i’ll be in 2 years time or even if i’ll still be in college.
