Started a masters degree by distance learning in January, it's the first studying I've done for nearly 10 years. I coasted through most of uni, put in some real effort at the end and got a 2.1 from a good university. Made the decision to really do my best this time and I've been spending a few hours every night on uni-work.
Just got my first assignment back and I'm a bit disappointed with a 58/100. It's not that I think the mark is unfair, I accept the feedback, it's just that I feel I could/should have done better. On the other hand it is the first thing I've handed in to be marked for 9 years, so maybe it's to be expected that I'm a bit rusty.
Did anyone else have a slow start with their masters after a long gap?
