    I don't know. Part of me just never feels like I've done enough. The grade boundaries do tend to be a lot higher with the OU than with a brick uni. 85% is a First, compared with 70% at a brick uni.

    Sweetheart, you do enough. You are more than enough.
    Please always remember that I am always right. I have a framed certificate to prove it.

    When in doubt, stop and think... WWSS? (What Would Suzi Say?)

    Not sure I'll ever see it. When I got my A level results, I rang my mum and told her I got A, B, C, D... "yes, and?"... even when the D got upgraded later on (I sat my A levels the year of the marking scandal) I never really got a well done. Same at school, dropped 2 marks in a geography test once and got told it wasn't good enough by my teacher. I know he was trying to be funny as I'd got full marks on the previous test but it didn't make me feel very good.

    Just read my feedback. They said my essay had a good structure and good argument but only gave me a bare pass for that aspect. I don't understand why?? Still, it doesn't count towards my final degree classification so no point arguing about it.

    There's ALWAYS point in questioning something if you don't understand it. If you don't then how can you improve?

    I have lots of feedback, it's one thing I like about the OU, I just don't have the energy to question it right now.

    Sure you do! Take a break, have a cuppa, and then make the call.

    Exactly, thats the point of feedback. Even if it doesnt change the grade, its worth knowing what the marker is thinking
    When all else fails, use glitter instead
