You know how teenagers seem to know absolutely everything? That’s how I feel today! I just submitted my iCMA43 (MST124’s quiz for the calculus modules) and got full marks. I’m absolutely insufferable right now.
There was a tutorial last night for calculus, which I was late for. (My phone is … Well, it’s hard to describe without swearing. But I’m blaming the phone because the alternative is to accept responsibility for my own choices, and forget that.) The tutorial really built my confidence. I made all the same arithmetic and algebraic errors I always do (so no chance of doing well at the exam), but my understanding was where it needed to be the whole way through.
I still have one or two days worth of calculus to get through, and I need to finish up the calculus parts of TMA03, but I can get back to a normal study schedule. (I put TM129 to the side to concentrate on calculus.) So sometime next week I’ll start handling two modules simultaneously again. Since I only have the Linux block to do there, and I already run dozens of headless Linux virtuals (and one physical Raspbian box), I should be able to complete TM129 long before revision for MST124 starts in May.
My TMA02 results are overdue by a day, now, so I’m doing my best not to be impatient about it. I get that my tutor is busy, and I’ve been in that situation. On the other hand, it’s entirely possible that there really was a problem with my submission and there’s nothing to mark. I’ll probably edit this entry once it’s back. I’ve spotted a few unimportant mistakes in it, so it probably won’t be as good a result as my last one, but I’m not expecting it to be too much worse.
