Submitting the final assessment

I’ve done it! After eight months of hard work, I have handed in my final university assignment. I submitted it late last night. One final read through and then I pressed send.

I’d done it. It was over. What a relief.

Since October, I have been studying an Open University module on the nineteenth century novel, as part of a degree in English Literature. Given everything else going on in my life, it’s certainly been a challenge. When I pressed send, I couldn’t help but feel pleased with myself.

Six assessments submitted. Five passed. One result to follow. I feel a little proud.

The final assessment was 4,000 words and worth double all the previous assignments (no pressure). It had to count. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a good result. The last week has been a blur of essay writing, reading and revision. I had to put my life and blogs on hold, just for a few days.

It is such a relief to hand in that final piece of work. I’d love to go out and celebrate, but it’s not quite over yet. I have an exam on 7th June, three weeks today. Between now and then I need to revisit and revise the novels of the nineteenth century. This is more challenging because they are huge, great tomes of books!

The thing is, I’ve come so far. I started my degree five years ago. This module is a level three, the hardest level. I owe it to myself to put in the work over the next three weeks. It’s going to be difficult, but I have to do it.

Three weeks that’s all. After that I can focus on other books. I have a huge pile of books ready to be read. Three weeks, and then I can read whatever I like.
