I’ve just got my final grade back for second year and I’m feeling really pissed off with myself. I scraped a first last year (which doesn’t count) and apart from one essay which I tanked I got firsts for everything. I wasn’t expecting that this year but my marks vary so much I don’t really know where I am or whether I’m on track or not. The lowest is 55 and highest 71. I know some of it is sour grapes because I really wasn’t expecting 2:2s this year and I can do better but a lot of people seem to be in the same position. I don’t know if I’ve missed something with certain assignments or if the marking is actually inconsistent. Some of it was really fucking harsh! Is this normal and do I need to just suck it up? I think this year counts for 30% so I can possibly pull it back but it makes me worry for 3rd year. I need to get a 2:1 in case I want to do a masters.
