Results Day!

I have been very restrained and managed to keep my checking of the OU site to twice a day ever since I noticed that my A200 result was due out by the end of this week. I checked just now having got distracted at lunchtime and, lo and behold, I got a distinction! I am so chuffed and its a first step to getting another first overall :)

I actually only got 82% in the exam and I thought I needed 85% (my source questions let me down, as I thought they would - both my essays were in the 85-100% bracket) but the FAQ says that the examiners have discretion to award a higher classification if academically justified. Looking at the overall breakdown, only 22 people were in the 85-100% bracket for the exam so I guess they decided that the boundaries were too high. Still, I'm really happy about it!
