I did the TM353 and TM354 exams this week. The former was a nightmare memory test of trivia and the latter a lot clearer.
TM353 is typical of a number of exams I have sat with the Open University – it’s as if the exam was an afterthought. In all honesty the module can be more accurately assessed using continuos assessment (which it already has). This sort of exam isn’t testing understanding or further reading – simply the ability to memorize small details. As anyone who knows me knows – my memory is bordering on hilarious.
TM354 was much better in what it was testing but again, asks the question why not rely on continuous assessment? Am I likely to remember OCL syntax this time next year? Of course not but I’ll be able to look it up.
Anyway, hopefully I did OK and I’m just left with the Computing and IT Project (TM470). That starts in January and until then I plan on training BJJ, running, reading and watching a bunch of Netflix!
