Postgraduate Diploma studies

In November 2003, I enrolled on a part-time graduate diploma programme called Computing for Commerce and Industry at the Open University, which is Britain's leading distance-learning university. Here's my study programme. Each course lasted six months and was assessed via coursework and an examination.

2003 November M880¹ Software Engineering Pass with Merit

A Pass with Merit requires a mark of 70% or higher in both the coursework and the examination. The corresponding threshold for a Distinction is 95%.
