Well, I spoke too soon about getting M343’s latest TMA in the bag.
I realised I had errors in two questions, which took a while to iron out, and one sub-part of one question really confused me, forcing me to read, re-read, then re-read the course books some more.
Started at 8am, finished at 2am – 18 hours for approximately 10 marks.
Found a way that isn’t in the book to solve the question that was really confusing – just an algorithmic approach – but couldn’t check it.
When I finally sussed the book method, it did what my algorithmic approach had taken ages to do in five minutes flat. I still don’t fully follow the logic in the course book on this though.
The TMA is finally in an envelope and will be hand-delivered in about six hours time.
Next goal – get a couple of weeks’ worth of M343 reading done over the next few days, and get the CMA finished about a fortnight early.
Then play catch-up with M347 for the next month – need to go at 4 x course pace to get back on track for the next TMA.
