Thank you for asking! Unfortunately we won't have results until
around the New Year - I think the Open University is unusually cruel
to students in that regard. However, I got to the exam, understood
all the questions, and didn't forget everything I'd learned under the
pressure, so it could have been worse.
It must be said that I DO realise that a lot of you do university
exams pretty regularly, so I'm open to an accusation of having made
an almighty fuss about a commonplace evil. Still, in my own defense,
I have to say that probably nobody here has done exams after such a
painfully long break. And, (really going out on a limb here), I
would confidently bet that *none* of you had to go off to take such
an exam an hour after receiving a phone call from your daughter to
say that there was an anthrax scare at school. :) As the
arrangements for the kids to get together and get home had been quite
hair-raising already, (not to mention the stress of the exam itself)
this almost caused my complete melt-down!
