The chart shows I gained a total of 86% overall – meaning I miss an ‘A’ by 1%. Rats!
As always, the questions I answered on the final exam seemed fairly straightforward and the ones I didn’t attempt seemed impossible! Even if I’d not made a silly mistake on one of the parts of the questions I did answer, I’d have still been short of the 87% mark by around 0.2% – and there definitely wasn’t another part question anywhere on the paper that I could have answered.
As the exam doesn’t formally close for some late starters until 1200 GMT tomorrow (11th June) I’ll leave my post-mortem until a later post. I’ll also reflect on the course as a whole. One of my original motivations for taking 6.002x in the first place was that I wanted to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the MITx approach as applied to teaching and having survived the experience over the last 14 weeks I think I’m in a much better place to write about that now.
All the best to anyone still grappling with the exam; congratulations to those who have passed and commiserations to those who have just missed out.
