TMA05 Submitted For DD101

I have just submitted TMA05. I have also just finished writing it too. This time, I spread the writing over three days, though I usually like to write them all in one go. It left me each time thinking about what I could write next, which was a little annoying. Hopefully I can get a higher mark for the one than the last one, as it’s actually complete!

I found this one a bit tricky, as I was destined to go over the word count by a LONG way, I could see this about halfway through. I had to delete some unnecessary phrases and condense some stuff down so I could fit in a conclusion, which has ended up being quite thin. It’s still a valid conclusion though.

Let’s look at TMA06… Ooh, I get to choose what to write about!


TMA03 Submitted!

So, TMA03 has been submitted!

I planned to do it all yesterday, but had other stuff to do, so I finished the reading (100 pages) and made notes as I was going along.  I found this to be very effective! I also made a plan, just in case I needed one. Plus, it was a little bit useful. Today, after shopping, and teatime, and a bit of TV, I started part two – the essay exploring the idea that the rural – urban divide was, as they say, ‘overstated’.  1000 words for that one. I didn’t manage to write about all the things i’d planned to, as ever. This doesn’t really seem to matter too much, as long as I get my point across. I think I did. Word count came to 1001.

Then I did part one – the part I started on the Metro. Summarise the information in this chloropleth map and that bar graph.  Fair enough. I already had 100 of the 500 words I needed from my public transport study session, and managed to do the other 394 words without too much trouble.

I pretty much started at nine/ ten ish, and sent it at about half one. I don’t actually remember when I started. But it didn’t take long to do. I think the notes I made really helped.

On to TMA04! Hooray!

Plus, my W100 module material is due on the 11th, that’s next Friday!

TMA02 Submitted!

It may be nearly half past midnight, but i’ve just submitted TMA02.  Completed, with plan. This one was 1250 words, with a plan (one page).

I didn’t exceed the word count by more than ten percent, but I was VERY close!  I wasn’t so keen on the subject matter, being briefly ‘Consumer society is divided society – explain’.

It’s late, and I have work in the morning (seven hours, up in five), so I’ll see you later. I need bed!

TMA01 Submitted!

I have finally, after my lengthy extension, submitted my first essay, TMA01. My tutor was away for the last week, so he said I could submit it at the weekend, as he wouldn’t be around to pick it up until then anyway.

After finding the transcripts of the DVD in the alternative formats section of StudentHome, and reading through them to remember what I had seen, I started my essay. The 750 word one.  It took two hours in total, which I think is good going. I’m not sure I rushed it, given that I did a 1500 word essay in four hours for Wolverhampton Uni and got a high B grade for it.

I’m bothered about my mark, naturally, but with it being only 5% of my final mark for the year, i’m not going to die if I get 30% or 40%, I think 30% is the minimum pass mark. I can’t see me getting less than that really!

I have also ‘left’ the Facebook group for DD101 module. I found that the group was not adding anything to my studies, and I was sick to the back teeth of updates from people saying ‘I’ve started reading the new book LOLZ’.
