My first lecture of the new academic year took place this morning/early afternoon. The subject was my core media module, which will run for the first half of the year only. For this year, I have three subjects in the first half and another three in the second. Four of my six modules I chose and the other two are core.
Work completed during this year goes towards my final grade, unlike work completed during the first year. There is greater pressure this year for students to put in more work to obtain a good grade.
