First exam done today – The Making of Christian Orthodoxy 325-451.
Questions were OK, pretty much what had been hinted at and I was able to comfortably answer 2 of them and a bit of waffle on the 3rd. Overall, should be a reasonable pass; not stunning, but reasonable.
One on Monday morning and one on Tuesday morning to do. Monday’s is Modern Christology and I’m really not looking forward to it. Should pass, but I’ll be so glad when it’s done. Tuesday is Pastoral Care and Theology. That should be fairly straightforward but the lecturer is a tough marker so not expecting great things from that one.
All I need, overall, is to aim for a pass – 40% – a ‘3rd’. But, if I got that then I’d be a bit disappointed because I know I’m capable of doing better. Not expecting to get a first though. Haven’t put in the work for that and I don’t really intend to. I’d rather compromise the grades and be able to be a bit more bearable at home and have time for other commitments. A 2:1 or 2:2 would suit me just fine and keep me on track for that at final honours.
Anyway, going to chill for a bit and let my brain recover before panicking about the next one.
