Dec '04 - Aug '06
We had a mid-year review last Thursday. This wasn't a normal pin-up where we lay out our work and then talk about it. This time we laid it out, then went home and let our TUTORS talk about it. The idea is that tutors from several units get together to look at all our work and decide if we're passing or failing. It's our unit tutors job to persuade the others that we are all passing.
Do other schools have this kind of thing? I've never heard of it before.
Anyway, it all went ok. Apparently our unit is in a comparably good position for this stage in the year.
That was Thursday. You'd think that after a thing like that, we might get the chance to chill for a weekend, right? Time to sort out other stuff (bills, sleep, friends) before getting back to work, right?
Wrong. We had tutorials on Saturday. Pressure was duly applied. Only 14 weeks to go. Lots to do.
I'll get around to posting some pictures and a proper project description sometime soon. I hope.
