How am I doing relatively ?

I mean how do my study results compare to other students? Do I actually care??! I read about people receiving TMA results of 99, 100 and so on. Than my average of 90 sofar seams low, very low as a matter of fact. On the other hand those who 'blog' 'brag' including me, I suppose. I wouldn't shout it around if I passed on 41/100, although it has exactly the same value to the overall degree result. - If a lot of students are scoring in the 80-100 range then the TMA's are just too simple imho. Since the student can make the assignments at home that means they can be quite challenging.

  1. You touch on an interesting point here -- should you share your marks? There is an argument for doing so 'proper' students do, but as you've noticed they could be dispiriting for other students.
    Personally if I don't need to I don't. But I will if they are needed in context.
    But I do like a good FirstClass signature! -->

    Piano grade one -- failed
    Brownie science badge -- level 2
    kick the wham on that jam

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
