HOW did that happen?? It feels as if this course has just started and then, seemingly out of the blue, our first assessment is due! Somehow, between studying tax, moving and the kids I had completely forgotten about it. Well, not entirely forgotten. I knew it was coming up in the foreseeable future but NOT A COUPLE OF DAYS AWAY. Luckily, I had been doing as Martin suggested and writing notes with my thoughts, reactions, in-sites and questions whilst reading the study guide so it wasn’t really that painful.
A rookie mistake that I made however was that after writing my assessment out, I went and had a look at the exemplar. Didn’t the blood drain from my face and my heart skip a beat looking and reading the example. NO WAY IS MINE THAT GOOD!!! What have I done??? I have failed for sure. I hang my head in shame, hoping that it is enough to at least get a pass. I was honest, I was me, and I tried. So I suppose based on all of that I SHOULD be proud. I worked hard and I got my assessment in on time. Maybe I shouldn’t be so hard on myself.
So to my fellow students in the same or similar position to myself. YOU CAN DO IT!!!! And your assessment will rock. Don’t worry if you get stuck, keep on at it and it will come to you. I can’t wait to read how you all passed with great marks and how we were all worrying for nothing.
Have a great weekend everyone.
Until next time.
