more marks

Got an email today with the marks for my Bioinorganic coursework. 100% with the comment "What can I say, perfect!" :D

I'm not sure that lecturers are allowed to give 100% on essay-type questions, so there may be some sort of debate about that in the examiners' meeting. Mind you, I saw what some of the other students were handing in (1 1/2 pages copied out of the textbook) compared to what I handed in (8 pages with 9 diagrams and 20 references), so... I presume he'd win the argument. Would love to be a fly on the wall there, though.

So that makes:
Organometallic - A
Lipids and Membranes - A+ (although this depends on him remembering he changed the mark from 53/60 to 54/60, otherwise it's just an A.)
Carbohydrates - A+
Mass Spectrometry - A+
Biological Chemistry I - A+ (92% - I finally plucked up the courage to add up my marks.)
Transition Metals - A- (78.5%, ugh - all because I forgot about one of the pieces of coursework and did it in 10 minutes before the class started with no notes while I was hallucinating. If that one wasn't included, I'd have had 91.8%. But I deliberately haven't claimed the mitigating circumstances on that because as far as I'm concerned, it was my fault for forgetting about it. Maybe I'm being stubborn.)
Bioinorganic - A+

I haven't actually had grades this good since school, which says an awful lot about the difference between struggling on with virtually no help compared to having active disability/mental health support from the college and medication that mostly works. I'm... quite amazed in retrospect that I managed to get the grades I got at university the first time round, considering I've been bipolar forever and wasn't even on antidepressants. Still - going from Bs and B-s to As and A+s... that's a big jump. I'm still the same person, and if anything my study habits are worse now due to combining academic work with a job that eats my spoons, rather than being a full-time student. I'd be doing even better without having to work for a living as well. Hmm.

Still know nothing about the Atomic Spectroscopy. So much for her getting at least the problem sheets back to us before the exam, sigh. Wonder if I'll ever get it back. May have to go and hit that lecturer with a plastic spork until she finds it and marks it.

    I am alive. Coping with the hiatus hernia. Perhaps in a one damned thing after another sort of way. Still, the symptoms have all improved…

    Went to the doctor yesterday. My TSH level, which was apparently 1.93 uIU/mL in October 2015 is now up to the truly appalling 4.13 uIU/mL. Suddenly…
