As this area of study for me is so far removed from anything I have done before, I decided I would be happy with a “safe pass” mark. So I am absolutely thrilled with the constructive feedback I received, and especially with my overall mark of 9.5 out of 10!!
A huge thank you to everyone who has been involved, from initial support for this area of study (JP), study loan & general encouragement (Mum), every day support, proof reading, ideas brain-storming, and celebratory pancakes (my beautiful wife), mentorship and general study support (Yoni and Tiffany at Code Institute), as well as all the friends, family, and fellow students who make up my amazing network.
❤ Thank you ❤
