I received my final results at 4pm today – I got a 2:1 in my course, Anatomy A: Research in Neuroscience. I’m fairly pleased with it. Sure, it’s not a first, but it’s enough to secure my DPhil at Oxford that starts in October.
Out of 21 people, four received firsts, one received a 2:2 and the rest received 2:1s. Not a bad ratio, although I was surprised that some of my friends didn’t receive firsts; I certainly think that they deserved them, although the examiners must have their reasons and to be honest, gaining a first at Cambridge doesn’t only require a lot of work, but it also requires a fair amount of luck as well.
So, that’s my three years at Cambridge completed. Bit of an anti-climax really. I’ll be uploading my extended essays and dissertation to this website in the near future; maybe some of you will find them interesting reading. I’m also hoping to upload some photos before I leave for Philadelphia on Tuesday, as well as a report of my trip to the Thorpe Park amusement park earlier this week (lots of water-related shenanigans).
