Assessment strategy M208, MT365.

For MT365: one exam, and the OCAS consists of 4 TMA's and 4 CMA's. I wasn't expecting the CMA's. The TMA's count for 15% a piece and the CMA's 10% a piece.

For M208: one exam, and the OCAS consists of 7 (not 4) TMA's.

Had a brief look at some past exams from both courses. Both exams seem doable, passable. Most of the MT365 is entirely new to me, so I must be careful not to underestimate this one. Rating the course at level 3 must have had a reason.

For the moment I'll stop preparing, pre-reading for M208, MT365, will do other math stuff.

  1. There are 7 TMAs on M208 according to my study calendar, which arrived on Friday together with the first 1/3rd of the course.

    Congrats on your MS221 grade 2 - I had virtually identical OCAS and exam results, a grade 2 pass, and the same feelings as you, though I also felt that MS221 had been nothing more than a proving ground for me to know I could "hack" doing "proper maths", and that as a 30 point level two course, the difference in value to the overall maths degree between a grade two and grade one pass is very small indeed.

    Good luck on the M208 adventure.

(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.)
