High merit for my first piece of work

I recently received feedback on my Level 1 paper of the Mental Health course I am doing, with the BSY Group and I received a High Merit for this piece of work.

Although I have some background knowledge in mental health and so this would have helped me to finish this paper, there were a couple of questions I researched further to check I really understood what I was being asked. But I still wondered if I had them right. Knowing I was ok with these questions in the end and my unexpected mark received for this first paper, it has gave me huge confidence to carry on doing the best I can. I don’t usually do so well at the beginning of any course, so it has been a lovely surprise. I would like to keep aiming at this level or higher.

Assignments are marked with either Distinction, High Merit, Merit, Pass or Resubmission. I have eight assignments in this course to complete and I am looking forward to learning more.
This first piece assignment I also learnt a little about myself, as I learnt about ‘displaced aggression.’
‘Displaced aggression’ is when someone feels pent-up anger and frustration. They will easily shout at someone close to them, even though they won’t be the cause of the displaced aggression. The person with the displaced aggression does not know where originally their anger stemmed from. This was something I had a few years back myself, although no one else told me this, as I was told originally there is always a reason mostly to the cause of the anger, which some of mine, there was not always a reason.

Although I have experience in mental health on a personal level, there is always something more to  learn, which was why I chose to do this course.

Continuing my learning journey

I learnt not so long back, that I have passed my Foundation Level 1 in Maths. I now await to hear when I can start my next level.

I have also just started another course, after signing up online. This course is a paper based course with the BSY group. I am doing a course in Mental Health to gain some knowledge in this area, should this be an area I decide to shadow next.
I have already shadowed healthcare assistants in a clinic and if I like to shadow further there, then I am most welcome. I liked the half a day I had there and the staff were really helpful. But I need to think about if working on a clinic every day is right for me, than I first thought. So while I continue my next learning journey, I will take the opportunity to shadow where necessary, before making my mind up.

My learning

This is what my table mostly looks like, when studying.

studying books on dining table

My dining table started looking like this when I first took my GCSE English lessons. My GCSE English exam results in the summer of 2015 were not what I was originally aiming for and so I chose to re-sit my reading and writing exam paper. But the results last November remained the same grade. Many will know I was gutted the first time round, as I was feeling confident then. But the second time, I did not get my hopes up.
Although I did not get the grade C I was after, looking at the breakdown of my individual marks for my reading and writing papers, I noticed I had improved from before. So this is the positive part I remind myself of, that at least I improved.
The other positive part is the friends I made from my English class. We keep in touch and meet up when we can, which I look forward to.

I plan to hopefully one day do GCSE English again, as getting that C is a personal goal of mine. But first, I am getting the foundation levels of Maths out of the way. I have already taken my Foundation level 1 and await the results. I also have my name down for the next level, which will be starting at some point soon.

I have books I am reading in my own time that I hope will help me with my grammar and creative writing skills, as well as other things related to writing. Most, if not all, will prepare me when I one day do that GCSE English again.
I also have a GCSE Maths book. Originally, I had no intentions to go as far as GCSE level in Maths, but I have thought about it. But I shall see later on that one.
