    Default Some Good News

    Well for me at least!

    The OU Masters results are in and I got 90% for my dissertation on a reinterpretation of the mosaic cycles in Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome.

    Quite chuffed with my little self, in the last two years I've had 5 operations and other minor procedures yet never gave up! Champers tonight!

    I started one many years ago, but soon gave up. I applied for credits for the higher education qualification that I have and was denied, not on the basis of the standard of the qualification, but on the fact that it had been a part time course with day release that didn't last long enough to qualify. It was a two year course with 1 day and two evenings a week.

    At that time the OU wasn't geared towards awarding BSc degrees and very few courses were science orientated. However, I started a course where the foundation course had enough science elements to generate my interest. Note that I passed Physics, Chemistry and Maths at what is now called AS level. The first few assignments proved to be enlightening as the lecturer consistently claimed that I had not answered the questions correctly and were all awarded less than 15 marks apiece. I decided it wasn't worth continuing as science isn't open to interpretation as in other subjects and I wasn't going to concede to the opinion of the lecturer.

    As someone who also wrote his dissertation on a late Roman history topic, I salute you.
