Latin Update!

In the week leading up to the first mid-term exam, I detected a bit of trepidation among my students this time out. This is completely understandable, given that, for many of them, it was to be their very first university exam ever. However, it seemed to me that the worrying was a bit more pronounced this year, so I spent a bit more time than usual preparing the class for the exam itself.

This may, in hindsight, have been unnecessary. My poor, poor, exam...

Here, by the way, is a photo of the infamous Dalek, as mentioned in this post.

Did you go too easily on them?

I don't think so. The exam had the same format as last year's, just with different words, and I marked it to the same standard. I think I may have over-prepared them a bit. On the other hand, it's entirely possible that they're just very very bright as a group!

And that they have an excellent teacher!
