Hitting The Mark

Posted by Sam Smith

The turnover between handing in an assignment and getting it back is around 4-8 weeks.  85When the assignment is marked and ready for collection, I receive an email informing so and I go to the taught programmes office in uni and pick it up… This week I received such an email with regards to my Exercise Psychology assignment, which I actually posted about when I handed it in just after Christmas.

I always get nervous at this point… When handing in this assignment, I didn’t feel too confident, I thought I’d made a load of mistakes and just decided to ignore those feelings and hand it in.  I mean, I had done everything that was asked of us but I wasn’t that confident in how well I’d done.

And yet to my utter surprise I receive the best mark I’ve ever received on a single piece of work – 85 /100!  WOOOP.  I had to read it a few times to check.

It’s really great when hard work pays off, and it’s inspired me to keep going with my current assignment!

Work hard readers, it’s worth the struggle!
