Thread: 2.1, 2.1, first???? confused!!!!

Because I sterted the discussion, I feel that I have to answer. I don't know which system is easier or harder. I can only say that I studied Pre-Primary education. It was a four year course (like almost all in Greece, except engeeneeering (5) and medicine (6)). For my degree I had to study 48 different modules and write a dissertation based on research.
I cannot say anything about the british undergaduate studies, as I have no experience.
But I have experience on postgraduate studies. I found that, during my first master, I knew a lot of things that british people did not know, BUT they knew how to do academic research work!
Now, my second master was a whole different thing as it was distance-learning. I can't make comparisons as I didn't meet anybody else.

I am really sorry if this post seems silly, but I would like to have the grades cleared in my head. I have a fist degree (BA) with a 75% from a Greek university. Which scale does it belong in? Thank you very much!

From what I have learned, you can mention the second reference saying that this was cited in the first one. e.g. Jone 1988, p. 32 (cited in Gregory 2000, p. 54)

I have just finished an online master degree. It wasn't easy. In fact it was quite hard to work full time (in special education) and study at the same time. The challenges are so many, but if one wants, one does it!!!!

Furthermore, when he finally read one of my drafts, he told me to change something and when he corrected my essay, he told me that the change was wrong and the the right was x (which was what I had written in the first place)! As far a my first master, he kept telling me that he was sure I passed it as a favor and that I was not deserved it!!! I had to wait even for 6 months to have an essay marked because he was on holiday and then he had a lot to do for his own research!!!! I hope that noone will ever have an experience like mine!!!!

I have just finished my second master (MBA). I hold another one, too. I would like to express my experience of a bad bad bad tutor. I completed my MBA vis distence learning. My tutor never had time for me, he never checked his emails and did not want to read my drafts (essays and dissertation). also, he kept telling me that I was not suitable for postgraduate studies!!! Once I asked him to help me understand a term and he told me that I had to study more to understand it (I had asked hom to tell me if the explanation I had given was correct or not and given him examples of how I thought it coulp be applied into practice).
