M301: TMA06 - Available

The sixth and final TMA, TMA06, is now available. Downloaded it yesterday and have virtually completed Q1 already. It certainly looks more fun than the previous two TMA's.

M301: TMA 05 - Results

Results for TMA05 have been released and I got 95%. I am rather pleased with this as some of the questions for this particular TMA where awful.

M301: TMA05 - Submitted

Finally managed to submit TMA05 last night. I thought that TMA04 was painful but this one has proved even worse due to some of the questions not being clear on how they where supposed to be answered. Whoever wrote TMA05 must have a passion for cryptic crosswords, so lets hope that it isn't the same person devising TMA06.

Americas Memory Problem!

SOME 30 per cent of Americans cannot say in what year the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks against New York's World Trade Centre and the Pentagon in Washington took place, according to a poll published in the Washington Post newspaper.

M301: TMA05 Rant!!!

I am half way through TMA05 and am really hating it. In fact it is the worst TMA I have had to do so far during my time with the OU. The reason for this is that a number of questions are not clear in what they are asking and rather vague. Trying to understand these questions is proving a time consuming exercise.

M254: Exam Result & Final Grade

I have just found out that the exam results and final gradings for M254 have been published and I scored 75% in the exam, giving me a grade 2 for the course. Although to a certain degree this was the grade I was expecting I have mixed feelings about the result, especially as my average score for the TMA's was 99% (97, 100, 97, 100) .

Note to self: Must revise harder for next exam (M301)
