And their grades ?

For instance, this is an example of a grade 1 TMA, this is example of a grade 2 TMA etc etc.

No you can't get past TMA papers! They recycle the questions that's why they can't!

You can't get them...officially...

But there are a lot of things you can get unofficially...

You can get past TMA questions off previous students sometimes and sometimes tutors do give them out but unless someone wants to share their answers to TMAs (which isn't allowed as may lead to plagiarism/similar questions being set) you'll only get the question set.

Feel free to pm where :cool:

Nick and Lambert, i think there's a slight misunderstanding. Im not remotely interested in the questions, past, present, or future /I know questions change also etc (Im an experienced student). I am interested though in examples of various grades of TMA - essays/reports/investigations. Id like to read through them and compare/contrast them. If you know of anywhere online i can find good examples, full examples, let me know. Thanks.

I don't think what you are wanting exists unless you ask your tutor and they supply you something along those lines.

Last year I asked two different tutors for examples of good and poor quality Social Science essays. I had my head bitten off both times. I subsequently even tried to make it clear that a dummy question and answer would be of great help (e.g. "Discuss the pros and cons of using flavoured jelly in imposing order in goldfish society"), but got flat refusal and no interest.

Thankfully, just before I completed my final essay another student told me how an OU Social Science essay must be laid out (it is not obvious) and I got 92% for that one instead of my usual 40-45%.

However, if you Google the course code you will see plenty of TMA answers online. But, you cannot - with any confidence - find out what grades they got. Even those web sites that sell essay answers for plagiarism purposes cannot be trusted to be honest about the grades those papers really got so even they are of no use.

It is all very annoying, unhelpful, unfair and is my biggest complaint about the OU.

If you can get in touch with a student from the previous sitting of your module they might be able to help you out. I've joined the Facebook group for the course I'm starting in October and someone kindly send me the PDFs of the textbooks and TMA booklet. Within the TMA booklet there is sometimes advice on what is expected in your answer and that can be useful as guidance. A good tutor will also give you feedback on how to make your next assignment better but sometimes it requires a little more coaxing for them to provide that kind of help!

Hi, do you still have the info about how an OU social science essay must be laid out? That would make an incredible difference to me and be really helpful. Pleeeeeease
