surely it should be text messaging by now and in 5 years they'll be uploaded to your brain automatically.
Its pretty nerve wracking! I was pretty certain of what I was going to get, but it was till horrible opening that envelope.
but no envelopes for us :(
you'll know you will be able to move to London, so the face smashing can begin.
if i get a job. no luck so far.
as soon as i saw i hadn't got a viva, i knew. i still hated looking at the results sheet though.
so: i got drunk on free wine first, then i porbably had an embarrassing talk with my supervisor that i have forgotten, then i went to the pub and drank more wine, then i walked home slowly and fell asleep on a sofa watching the france-greece euro 2004 quarter.
Drink hard to celebrate.
those mutha fuckers! i bet they could easily just put them up now!
they've had the results a week.
does that even exist?
i have the poops
Or Mickey Mouse?
Celebrate by going all the way round in the paternoster.
done that far too many times anyway.
latest news: i just got an interview for the place i'm desperate to work - pretty fateful?
good luck raps!
its ten years since i got mine.
My brother got his the other day...
He kept saying things like "I've blatantly got a first"
He got a 2:1, still pretty impressive, but I had a big LOL in his face
i got a 2.2.
it matters fuck all in the long run, unless you want to go on one of those high profile big company graduate recruitment schemes (bp, esso, barclays bank etc). you need a 2.1 for that.
otherwise, it matters very little, although we at work dont really recruit that many people with a first. mostly because im an environmental scientist, and your average 1st degree student in env sci, wants to save the world on their own.....
judging by the general stress you've put yourself through this year, you really do deserve a first, so fingers crossed :)
won't happen. i'll be satisfied with a 2.1 and a job.
definitely moving to london town too? wow. LOADS of jobs there, you'll be fine :D designing a new olympic stadium and stuff. YEAH!
it should be okay.
text me, and I'll drink in your honour.
geez, i must have got mine about a year ago, i can't remember if i'd moved to london before or after getting them. time flies.
hope they're what you want/are expecting or better!
I'm sure you'll do well. If you get a 2:1 it means you're as clever as me, and that's something to be very proud of.
I FEEL ILL. I'M OFF TO GET THEM. YAYS.
fingers crossed for you.
You've gone already. But whatever.
You don't need luck anyway. You'll do fine :D
Well done Raps!!!
good work :)
but mr rapscalion-jones Arc HI-tek (Hons)
well done Mike! :D
one day I will be the same as you.
also, what's a 2:1 ? What significance does it have? Is that the best you can get?
but as its architecture, its really impressive
Architecture was my alternative career path and I do ocassionally wish I'd followed it :-)
Be proud and get drunk :)
my sister found out that she got a 2:1 with honours (whatever that means) as well today. i guess i'll have to stop all the blonde jokes...
thanks everyone. i'm hungover and delighted.
i won a prize too, but i don't know what for.
