Uni results: Year three Semester One.
I received my final result for my first semester module yesterday. They are as follows:
Major Project Part One: 2:1. This is our dissertation. You can choose to write the first 20k of your novel, a ninety page film script, the first episode of a TV series, a collection of short stories or poems and other options I can't remember. I choose to write the opening of a novel. For this first part you only needed six thousand words (I'm doing the other fourteen thousand now)
Adaptation and Dramatization: 2:1. This module covered adapting one medium into another. We had a choice of four texts to turn into a screenplay. I picked A Land Without Jasmine, anyone heard of it?
Media Law and Ethics: 2:2 This was exam based and briefly touched upon copyright which is why we studied it. It was basically a filler module.
Overall I've got a 2:1. I'm in my final semester now which seems to be going quite well. I've just reached the 10K mark in novel for Major Project Part Two. My second module (only two this semester) is literacy magazine. Our works is published in the University Newspaper (That isn't as glamorous as it seems, the only people who read it are the class that put it up and then next year's class who replaces it.)
All in all, everything is going quite well.
