For A103 my second to last OU essay has been marked, gaining 70%. Not too bad, and pretty much on a par with the rest of the marks. This means that my average for the course currently stands at a little under 70%, if I score zero in the final TMA (Tutor Marked Assignment) it'll be a touch under 60%. The final TMA carries a threshold mark of 30%, in other words, without that I fail the course. With the minimum mark to pass I'll get 63% overall, the best overall score I can hope for is 73.5%.

Assuming I get a minimum of 30% for TMA09, I will have earned the right to put Cert Hum (Open) after my name (something that I'll only do for amusement value, given I don't quote other qualifications!)

The question now... where next?
