I have finished my EMA and submitted it, studying MU123 has been somewhat bittersweet for me, there have been lots of aspects that I have not understood whatsoever, and others that I found easy. I'm glad that I have finished the course and I'm quietly confident that I have passed.
This module was 30 credits, I would have thought it should have been 60 credits. I spent more time with MU123 than I did with my other module TM129. MU123 had 4 TMA's and 4 iCMA's plus the EMA it was a lot of work to do especially in conjunction with TM129 which only had 3 TMA's plus the EMA (Which I am still doing now, I need to submit it on Tuesday 5th June) also I work long hours as well so for the last nine months I have been going to work, coming home and then going up to my study and that where I have been until I went to bed.
I know this may sound like I'm bitching, but I just want to make it known for anyone who is wanting to do this degree, do so only if you really think you have enough spare time. I was thinking, when stage 2 starts I was going to start the first module in October and then start the other module in February, at least then it would be staggered. The more I thought about this, the more I'm thinking this is not a wise choice, at least with studying two modules at the same time, I will finish the end of may or beginning of June thus having the summer off to enjoy myself. With staggering the modules I will not have any time off studying.
Stage 2 is a big jump up from stage 1 and I think I will need to prepare myself, I need to study four modules altogether and one of which has an examination at the end instead of an End of Module Assignment. Historically I have not done well in exams and I am starting to hyperventilate just thinking about it.
On a lighter note, I am going to finish the EMA for TM129 today with any luck and then submit that and tomorrow my partner, Richard our friend Nathan and myself are either going to the botanical gardens in Bristol or we are going to for a cycle ride to Bath, weather permitting.
Have a good weekend!
