Only halfway there?


It felt like the MA finish line was close, but it turns out that the race is only half run.

I started my master’s in legal translation in October 2010 and am due to finish at the end of this October. So, out of a total of 25 months, there are just over eight left, which means I’m more than two thirds of the way there in terms of time.

The credit weightings, though, tell a different story:

4 modules in year 1:60 credits
4 modules in year 2:60 credits
Dissertation:60 credits
Total:
180 credits

I’ve done six modules—all of year one (60 credits) and half of year two (30 credits), which adds up to 90 out of a total of 180 credits: I’m only halfway there!
