It seems that my last post struck a cord with people. My stats haven’t shown that many views for a while (35 yesterday in case you were wondering… yes, I’m that popular. *sarcasm mode off*). Anyway, in all the confusion and mixed up feelings I completely forgot to mention my good news… I got the provisional result for my dissertation yesterday (subject to approval by the exam board). I got 70%! For my non-English readers… that’s actually good! Yes, I know it’s 30 whole percent less than 100, but if you bear in mind that you can’t actually get anything about 85% it puts it in perspective. Plus I was only aiming for a pass, which would have been 50%, so I’m happy. The mark becomes official on 5th July.. hopefully it won’t change too much, if at all, then all my marks will be added together and I’ll find out what I’ve got for the whole degree. And at some point in November I’ll finally get my certificate. For now, though, I shall sit back and relax, safe in the knowledge that my Master’s is in the bag and I don’t have to do any more assignments… at least until the next time I decide to inflict an OU course on myself. By the way, if anyone was thinking of buying me a gift for my birthday in August, OU vouchers are always appreciated 😉 (I jest, of course. I’m not even going to be in Germany on my birthday this year). Right, I’m off to spend some time with my boyfriend now. I started a ten-finger typing course this morning, which ran from 9 – 12:30 (and it’s every Saturday from now til 24th July. Woe, woe, woe) so the only thing we’ve done together today is weekly food shop. Not much fun. Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone 🙂

That’s a great mark, Bevchen, I don’t care what anybody else says! Having watched my DD go through the same process last year, I KNOW all the work and blood, sweat and tears that a dissertation takes, so I think even to pass is an incredible thing! Go pat yourself on the back!
Congratulations on your dissertation mark! 🙂
great grade! i hope it won’t change much. but i’m surprised you’ll have to wait until november to get the certificate??? what takes them so long when your grade is set in july?
(We knew you would do it!)
Thank you all so much 🙂
Franzi – I’m not sure. The graduation ceremony is in November (which I’m not going to!!) so I guess they just wait til then and make them all in one go – the ones to post and the ones to give out at the ceremony.
Congrats! 🙂 Now I need to finish my own Master’s degree… speaking of which, I’ll be in Germany next June (so a year from now) to finish the last few credits of my degree. 🙂
Thanks Amanda. Ooh, exciting! You have to let me know where in Germany.
Ingolstadt, Bayern. I’ll be there for a month, then I’ll do some traveling. 🙂
