A340 - The Roman Empire

After the challenging experience of A330 I came back fighting, determined to crank myself up a gear and give A340 my best shot.  That’s not to say that A340 didn’t have its own fair share of challenges either, including the minor issue of a 3 hour exam at the end and a not so little case of toothache, but overall it really was a great way to end my degree with the OU and one of my favourite modules.   1,884 more words
