Mixed feelings after seeing my script supervisor… on the one hand, feeling pretty good, because he really liked it and disagreed with some of the feedback I got back from when it was marked, and it’s nice to know he didn’t mark it because some of the feedback totally contradicted things he advised me to do, also feeling pretty good that he acknowledged the work I did to improve it from the first draft he saw… and he said I was a good writer, which is always nice to hear, especially when that is something you maybe want to pursue in the future.
On the other hand, I’m now pretty pissed at my actual mark… I’m not saying it should be in the distinction marks or anything like that, but from the feedback I just got I would say mid-60’s wouldn’t have been unfair… I’ve been sat freaking out about how bad it must be and I’ve lost a lot of sleep over it, and cried more than once because I can’t figure out how to make it good, and now someone else is saying it’s actually pretty sound. Which great but also ugh.
Just a few extra marks would have made me feel so much safer going into this final project. It’s worth 50% of our overall grade, and if it doesn’t do well… I just really want to get a Merit overall, and I just wanted to be leveling at 65/66 to give myself that safety net and because the script development module was worth more than most of the other modules it drags it down.
I could maybe reach 64 overall so far, so long as my Group Project marks are in the mid 70’s. Which I guess they could be… but it’s like, for want of maybe 2 marks more I might have not been so messed up the last couple of weeks… and if it weren’t for a certain amount of personal preference in terms of linear vs non-linear story telling, I might have got them and just… ugh.
