So that essay about Criminological Theory? The really boring compare/contrast one that I mustered zero enthusiasm for and expected about a B for because my lack of enthusiasm showed?

It got an A+. A firm one too, not just scraping in.

I guess the points I lost for saying in the student forum that the tutor needed maths lessons, I got back for being the only one that'll argue with him. Anyway, that should be enough to motivate me for the rest of the course.

O.o

Except that you are the only one who is surprised .... we have come to expect routine brilliance from you.

That's the weird thing. I've come to expect routine brilliance from myself (or at least brilliant marks) as well, and this was.. less than brilliant IMO. Also, last time I wrote an essay for this guy it was less than brilliant and I got a less than brilliant mark.

All I can figure is that everyone else was even more bamboozled by the word limit and even less enthusiastic than me. Which is pretty unenthusiastic, just saying.

No complaints here though, just puzzlement.

(thanks)

This from the person who ended their PhD with "Difficult welding is difficult" and got away with it.

*raises eyebrow*

Cool! Congratulations, and apparently you can write without enthusiasm as well as with it. That's a good thing to know about oneself.

Congratulations!

If the teacher is any good they really should give you points for arguing and questioning instead of staying quiet and sucking it up like most people do.
