Well, I am now playing the waiting game. One (not too difficult) exam to go. I've finished the other four courses completely and am already going to the UVic website every few hours to see if my grades are posted. Even though they get a week after the final assignment or exam is handed in. I check. Check again. Check.
So far one was posted. A minus. HOLY SHIT! I half-assed the hell out of that class and was expecting a C. I was okay with a C. C's get degrees! Woo! Great attitude, me.
Anyway in checking my grades I stumbled upon my (unofficial) academic record ...
Looking at the list, knowing I don't have to dive back into that academic mess and jump through any more of their hoops, the list is rather impressive. To me. I'm like "Wow, I did that? That's cool."
See for yourself.
