Shaking like a leaf and crying!

Post by Eleanor on Thu May 28, 2015 5:16 pm

laughing Some of you might recall how panicked/stressed/hysterical I was about my university exams. I was 100% convinced that I'd failed my Field Ecology exam. Just got the results back for that one and I got an A! dance dance dance dance dance dance dance dance

We have an online news forum for the course, which is where we find out our grades. Our Field Ecology lecturer posted this as an intro to the thread when she posted the exam results:

'Dear all,

Please see your Field Ecology TCA grade below, these have also been sent to the UoN, so your total grade for the module will soon be available on your UoN login.

There were some amazingly high grades here, but also a disappointing number of fails. May I highlight that there is a significant correlation between lesson attendance and grade for this set of results (r21 = 0.58, p < 0.01). Attendance is probably not the only factor in success, but this strong correlation suggests that the two are related.'

The moment I read that, I was like... straight face straight face straight face sad sad worried worried crying crying crying crying I was so convinced that I'd failed. The results are posted by student ID number, rather than name, and usually mine is at the top of the list. The first five entries were all F grades, so I was already close to tears. tongue Then I looked up my student ID number and saw my actual grade and started crying anyway. laughing

I also got my grade back for the Small Animal Husbandry assessments - the ones where I had to handle/get bitten by, health check and discuss the background, diet, habitat, health problems, etc. of various animals. I got an A on that too! happy

Eleanor texted me with her grades as my oh & I were taking our son to the station....my reply to her was


"Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!! You got an A! You got an A! You got an A! You got an A! You got an A! You got an A!"

I hasten to add that I wasn't thrilled; not at all! laughing

Thanks! hug I almost emailed the exam moderator to ask if she'd posted the correct grade, as I honestly couldn't figure out how I'd gotten a B when I couldn't answer the 22 mark essay question, only did half a page of vague notes on the 30 mark essay question and blagged my way through the other 30 marker. Must have gotten lucky! laughing

I hope you don't have wait holding your breath for too long Eleanor, but what's done is now done and no amount of fretting will change that. Easier said than done I know!

But I have every confidence in you hug

I don't think I've failed anything, but I just really want to know what I got! laughing I worked my bum off for those assignments and exams! There's one assignment in particular, a portfolio for Large Animal Husbandry, which we were supposed get the results for over a month ago! It was a really difficult one and took about six months to finish!

I know you worked your bum off Eleanor. And your ability and knowledge is beyond question.

It's a disgrace that you are still waiting for a result that you should have had over a month ago - I guess you're chasing this, although you shouldn't have to.

Thank you! hug I'm more exasperated than angry. tongue All results have to be finalised with the university by June 9th, so at least we won't have too long to wait.

We've been dropping little hints on the course forum about it. tongue I think our lecturers are starting to get a bit fed up with it! laughing
