Good luck with your studies. My .02, Don't mess around. The marks are artificial, arbitrary, and sometimes a pain but they are eventually a passport. Studying anything in the arts demands you find ways to lift you from the rest of humanity - good marks always help.
Good luck - enjoy history.
I´m in the first year on the degree of history ( general for the moment, from the
prehistory to medieval history)
Curious to see how your map works out. Keep it up!
What history are you studying?
