An unofficial OU blog detailing a return to study with the Open University, studying for a BA(Hons) Politics, Philosophy and Economics or as it's known, a PPE. About to finish 'DD306 Living Political Ideas' - MY FINAL COURSE - having completed 'DD101 Introducing the Social Sciences', 'A222 Exploring Philosophy', 'DD203 Power, dissent, equality: understanding contemporary politics', 'DD209 Running the Economy'and 'DD309 Doing economics: people, markets and policy'.
TMA06 deadline is just 3 weeks before the EMA deadline.
I submitted TMA06 over a week early.
Tutor knows I am going on holiday.
But here we are a couple of hours before I head to the airport and still no TMA06 returned marked.
Its not that I expect, or want, special treatment, but you'd think that by submitting extremely early you'd both get nearer to the front of the marking queue and give the tutor extra time to mark. Some students already have their TMA06 back which gives them a huge advantage towards finishing the EMA over folk that get it back with only a week to go.
As I have never found a way to download, and then open and display, the feedback zip file to my ipad, I may know the mark some time in the next week or so, but reading the feedback will have to wait until the 29th May.
The phrases 'cutting it fine' and 'taking it to the wire' spring to mind.
I now have to prioritise my time...... And to be honest unless the mark for TMA06 is a disaster, I will probably prioritise my time canvassing for Labour over any adjustments to the EMA.
The leaked Labour manifesto is superb. Corbyn is taking us towards a country I want to live in where we look after those who are vunerable, the better off pay a bit more and we give everyone an equal chance and most importantly of all..... Hope.
Targeting loneliness in the elderly is so important, what other party has looked at that.
I think JC is going to peak at the right time, Mrs May and her auto-bot responses may have a fight on her hands.
Let our politics drift towards Scandinavia, not Trump's USA.
