Okay. This module, especially the exam, came in one of the most critical periods. And despite all the excuses I could put here, I admit I messed up. Nothing less and nothing more. Although I enjoyed writing the essay, which did resulted in decent mark, the exam was a perfect demonstration of the fact that all students have their weaker days. I really only revised the night before the exam, went to bed at 9am, seeking 3 hours of sleep right before the exam. Overslept. Got up 2 minutes into the sitting time, and slowly went to the venue. Just fitting the 30-minute delay threshold pertmitting me to still attend, I opened the question paper aaaaaand... my mind went basically blank. Thankfully, I won some points. And I am glad that I didn't resit.
