This week I got my final set of results for the degree I have being doing over the past three years! And I am extremely happy with my results, I can now officially say I have an Ordinary Degree in Computer Applications & Support. 😀
I finished this degree achieving a Merit 1, a Merit 1 (>60%) is the closest to a distinction (>70%). Although I would have liked to get a distinction, I knew I was not going to get it, I just did not put in the right amount of work to get it! I thought that if anything I was going to get a Merit 2 (>50%) so I was surprised to see that I got the Merit 1 and I and extremely happy with that result!
Whichever way you think of it, I now have a degree, and it is my first so far! Next year I am going to continue on with my education and study IT Management. I hope to aim high in that year and achieve a distinction. I always knew that next year would be the year where I have to put in the work.
I get my official degree handed to me later this year, but that is not until a while after I start back to college.
I am looking forward to starting my next year, it seems really interesting. If all goes to plan I will be learning all about iPhone development next year, which is definitely the best way to go, as I do not see the iPhone going away anywhere anytime soon ;).
Also next year I am finally getting to be in the band new multi-million euro IT department, which already looks amazing from what I saw when I went on a short tour of the place with a few fellow college-mates!
