The exam is over! I actually enjoyed answering the first question (which was question 1, by the way) as I’d done a lot of revision on the text. I think my performance went downhill slightly from there, in line with the amount of revision I did! I picked the realist novel question for part two and the gender question for part three. My answer for part three was mainly BS, but hopefully it was all cool.
I definitely did enough to pass, or at least I hope I did. I came out the exam smiling at least and wound up using three answer booklets, although most of that was because I left some blank pages and double spaced my answers.
I may write up everything once the exam paper is up on the net, but until then I shall keep my knowledge in my head – apparently some people still need to take the exam.
To celebrate I had a beer with friends and then a burritto with my husband. I also had a little dance when I got home. There’s a really nice sense of freedom from being study-free until at least February. And I didn’t give up! Go team me.
