    Hey a credit and a distinction are great! Don't knock yourself over that. Well done!!

    i can completely understand where you are coming from hun, im doing full time uni at the mo with just 1 child and it's close to impossible (technically i do have another half but he's never home)

    but as anne said, a distinction is just that, and a pass means not having to resit it and pay more!!

    Perhaps you might need to consider dropping down to part time? it'll take longer but its your sainty were talking about.. I am as of mid next year, just want these 6 months of full time to push through a bit

    Perfectionism is bad for your sanity. It's great you're doing a course, and fantastic you've got nice big passing marks, especially when you have kids to look after too.

    Sometimes you have to take some advice from people like Dorothy Rowe, and accept that something worth doing is worth doing "badly" - rather than not at all.

    I would hassle about the not-credits from previous courses - that doesn't seem right to me, they should be able to put the explanation on paper and it should make sense. And there is probably some way to get your Aboriginal studies mark reviewed too, an error of more than 10% would need a good written explanation in my opinion. And there must be some way that someone other than the person who originally did the mark does the review.

    I was so slack (?) with my studies that I had to re-sit some of my exams every year. It did inspire my sister to work her butt off though cos she was worried if that was how I did and she was comparitively stupid (in her own mind) that she would fail everything. So she topped all her classes. Made me wonder how I'd go if I made an effort. Scares me sometimes. And I was living with my parents and had no children to raise so no excuses there.

    The only time anyone cares that you got *high* passing marks in your uni courses, is the first 6 months after you graduate when/if you go for graduate job interviews.

    Hey girl, ANYONE who can look after children and succesffuly complete a Uni degree is a hero in my eyes. I faliled twice to do it by long distance. Once as a sole mum and once as a married mum.

    You're my hero girlfriend. You're going places, remember that and you are showing your children what they can achieve in life.
