Theology Exams - Results
I have received my results for the exams I wrote - "Jesus and the Gospels" and "Former Prophets". I did much better than I had any reason to expect, and am really fired up to put much more into the coming semester. This semester I've signed up for "Pentateuch", "Introduction to the New Testament" and "Early Church History". I've enrolled for three modules this time because:
- Based on real experience from last semester, I believe that if I work diligently through the term I can manage the workload
- Because I started with my HTC studies in the second semester, if I do an odd number of courses in the first semester this year and next, and an even number of courses in the second semester, I'll get to a position equivalent to if I had started in the first semester, avoiding 1st/2nd semester prerequisite issues later on (of course I could achieve this by signing up for four courses this semester, but I think that may be over-the-top workload-wise!)
- I'm pretty much determined now to do the whole BA (Theology) degree (my original plan was just to do the first year); at a rate of two modules per semester, this will take 6 years...if I can demonstrate that I am able to sustain a bigger workload, I might be able to knock a year or two off that
I have received all the textbooks and am raring to go!
