Do I or don’t I
Chuck the towel in on M347, that is?
I’ll admit it’s beating me quite badly.
Forget the being behind bit – the trying to understand what’s going on bit has really got me flummoxed.
It’s weird but the maths is quite doable – easy in many respects. It’s the understanding what the heck is going on that’s got me. Badly.
There’s so much gamma this and beta that going on in unit 8, that I’m getting to a point where:
a) nothing is going in, and
b) I’m spending hours trying to find where subtle substitutions in expressions are coming from.
I think this boils down to one thing: make sure you’ve done the level two stats courses first – I haven’t.
Right now, I would consider a result, in the exam, of 16% – fail – entitled to resit to be a minor victory. As it stands, I think I’ll be lucky to get a few marks.
Which is odd given I’ve got most of the iCMA questions right – and there have been a fair few. I just have no clue of what each answer means or how it might be applied in any other context.
Mind you, everyone else on the course seems to be flying along. Maybe I’ve decided, subconsciously, to find this difficult. Who knows.
Will do another 20 hours or so over the next couple of days then make a decision.
