drove my chevy to the levee but the levee was dry

Back in Bromingham for a couple of days, for the faculty’s Airpower Day School with Bill. Oh, and… results. I was, in case nobody had guessed, pretty worried.

20cr Making of the Contemporary World/Late Modern (panic attack in exam and near-complete lack of connection with subject matter): 24 in exam, 54 in essays, final mark 34.
20cr Analysing Everday Texts (MOMD, didn’t really like the subject, severe difficulties with essays and getting required texts): 57 final mark.
20cr Practising History (first essay the worst I’d done for Stuart, second essay written in the small hours without having actually read the books): 67 in first essay, 68 in second.
40cr War, Armed Forces & Society (great subject, reasonably satisfied with essay, less so with exam): 76 essay, 63 exam, final mark 70.
20cr Making of the Modern World/Early Modern (favourite subject, good tutors, had fun): 70 essay, 71 exam, final mark 71.

Final year mark: 61%. Upshot: 2.1 despite fucking up most things it was possible to fuck up.

I am feeling pretty optimistic about the second year.

  1. I have no idea what any of that means, as your system appears to be quite different to ours, but well done (because I’m assuming well has been done?).
