The End

I’ve finally come to the end of my time at Warwick. Six years at two modules a year to get a 2ii.

I suppose my “Student Record of Achievement” sums it up:
Student Record of Achievement

Those first year marks in Mathematics and Statistics show why, when I was nineteen, I took Physics and Computer Science as a degree course.

Those first year marks in Sociological Imagination & Investigation, together with those third year marks in Migration and Identity perhaps illustrate that us old buffers can have problems with exams. In the latter case I achieved a first in the essay but only just above a third in the exam! Spending about 100 hours on the essay and only sixty on the themes on which I answered examination questions, might also be a factor (In case anyone is interested I spent 275 hours on that module in total).

The marks on the other level 2&3 sociology and economics modules don’t have an exceptional range – one module just below the 2i threshold, three just above.

The three politics modules dragged me down. I found them tough going, but the experience was good for me. Politics is too important a matter to allow one’s opinions to be dominated by others. For many people the practice of politics is all about being bullied and bamboozled into believing other people’s bizarre opinions. It’s nice to develop the skills to mount an effective resistance!
