You guyyyyyys I didn't fail anything this semester \o/. |
After a torturous wait of 18 minutes to get to my results through the website, I came across the mostly pleasant surprise of these numbers:
-Contract Law: 69. Credit. This is one mark off a Distinction, which is RIDONK, because I was doing so incredibly averagely in the assessments, missed a couple of weeks of classes, barely did my readings (though occasionally I was super diligent with tute preparation readings) and was absolutely floundering coming up to the exam (though I felt reasonably confident during/after the exam). I would not have been surprised at a fail or a low pass for this unit. I guess scaling worked in my favour.
-Torts Law: 75. Distinction. I actually teared up a bit at this. It's my highest law mark so far. If I recall correctly I got a high Credit for my assignment, and I wasn't very confident after the exam. But throughout the semester I felt like I understood the content, and was a pretty great contributor in the small group classes (which counted for a fair portion of the mark) during the weeks that I wasn't falling asleep on my desk/absent due to Panto-related exhaustion. I am pleased.
-Religion (Anthropology): 74. Distinction. Ngl I'm sort of disappointed I didn't manage a HD in this unit, from the perspective I had at the beginning of the unit. I loved it so much, the content was super interesting, and I was on fire in the tutes. But I didn't put as much effort into the assessments as I could and should have so I think this mark is pretty much what I deserve. Given I was utterly freaking out about my take-home exam essays (worth a combined 50%) and believed toward the end that I could potentially fail, this is great. Also lol I did better in Torts than in Religion. Would not have expected that. Bad, Arts student, Bad!
-Italian Intermediate I: 91. High Distinction. I must have really bombed my last two assessments :/ (By 'really bombed' I mean 'got lower than 90 in')
So, Sigh Of Relief time. I'm sort of mad at myself that I didn't get a Pass or worse in anything because my studently ways were SO ABYSMAL this semester, I'm pretty sure I deserved worse results just for the kick in the pants they'd administer. Then again my standards for myself are probably too high. Oh well.
Also I award myself an HD in Life, Social Interaction, And The Respective Enjoyment Thereof for this semester, so I'm pleased with that :)
I have so many things to update on. But we'll leave it at this for now. I need to get up tomorrow to bake a cake. Yay.
