Personal Rating



After the ECN1005 module, which I was not happy about, this module was a very positive experience, as it finally outlined a model properly and enabled me to think about the concepts and start to relate them properly to reality. The exam was fairly easy. The assessed essay was on the other hand quite challenging, and although I was not too happy with what I have submitted, I enjoyed doing it and benefited greatly. Despite this, however, I was very happy with my grades.
