on my way to getting a first overall. awesome.
confident? worried? does anyone need a particular grade or something?
Obviously I would like to do better than that, but this year doesn't count towards my degree, and it's been pretty taxing on the brain going back in to education after years out of it, so if I just pass I'll be happy... Think I've got a 2 in my placement which is ace, and gives scope for improvement next year, the exams and essays could be a different story though. July 13th I find out, I think... Good on you for being on your way to a 1st, fingers crossed for you. What's your degree?
While I think my placement went ok I should add that I am a bit concerned about the other bits, and am hoping I'll pass above anything else...
yera, just a pass, youll get that naw bother (y)
what are the chances...
and got exactly 40 on one of them.
but im changing course so it doesnt matter and i was fairly sure i was gonna get that anyway.
i managed to get 1% on one though for drawing a picture. dunno how i did that
you were doing a law degree? pffft, fuck that man
whats yer new degree then? assuming you dont do an art course or somehting idk
what i should have been doing all along really. just waiting for it to be confirmed at the moment, but the woman pretty much said i've 100% changed
you'll probably get in no bother, theres like a thousand people in most of my history lectures, you could slip a new guy in and no one would even notice
i hope that women was an admissions officer and not a cleaning lady who's drasticly over stepping her bounds idk
but yeah they said this year theyve slightly less people than usual so its even easier. i couldnt do english literature though as that was entirely full... would have to reapply for next year
well apart form the english. next year, eh? you're going to be a teacher or something so? or is this like a stepping stone idk
yeah i wanna do that i think, it was my plan to be a teacher anyway, but having the history degree means i can teach that, which is ideal really, law wouldnt have let me do that.
and i need my grades for university.
plus i am taking my clarinet exam tomorrow and shitting myself as i properly know around 60 of my 110 scales.
and i cant do my pieces or aural stuff argf so i predict a fail for that. :(:(((:(:(:(:((:(
no way, you'll get an A* I BELIEVE IN YOU
good luck! (not that you need it)
i would be happy with 101
idk how yer system works :S
you'll pass it no bother, shure, the examiners will mark you up a wee bit anyway, should it be a close call like
be confident! you'll do great :)
well i haven't done theory for a long time and my scales are reallyhit and miss so thats like 40 marks potentially gone. and my pieces are really difficult.
its not a school exam its just a music exam really so it shouldnt matter too much i just want to pass.
thanks, i am trying really hard.
you'll ace the exam, be asked to join the european harmonic orchestra (or something), travel the continent and meet a charming frenchman who will teach you the meaning of love
I got my results for my degree today. Hell yeah! I got what I wanted :D
lets hear it for the nerds
and dont finish til next thursday. 5th year medicine is wank.
i just need to pass so i can go on elective and save dying children in africa. no biggie.
got a B and 2 Cs
should really have got a B in philosophy because all my essays have been above 65, but my overall result was 59. Im inquiring into it. C in french I was pleased with though, because i didn't do it in school to the right level and i didnt even think about it for a year, so I was pleased to pass at all.
Don't particularly care as I'm only aiming for 40%, but it would be nice to do well and beat my friends
this kinda stuff doesnt bother me
your exams out yet walks o o fine?
I walks double o passed. Sweet. Hi 2nd year.
whats your course walks oo fine, issit history? i like history
cool amirite, we should totally do that anyway
english and history. i was doing politics and philosophy for first year tho. cos i had to.
history is cool i wanna be a historian and have a oatched tweed coat and a pipe and stuff that would be kickass
"Oh yeah I want to be a philosopher I'm gonna wear black and go insane"
http://www.clas.ufl.edu/users/kapparis/GRYT/GRPHIL/Ad-Socrates.jpg <----that is
who are we to fuck with tradition anyway? bet you dont even have a tweed coat/pipe combo going on, pffft
i've got coffee+ fag + manaical stare
id call the police to check beneath his floorboards for the bodies that he's undoubtedly put there. unless he had glass eyes, in which case sry for offending you blind community
also, youre a beatnik? awesome, throw a beret into the mix. the chicks will dig it
Wittgenstein was gay, or at least bisexual. There you go.
good for him, the more gay philosophers the better
'hi, i'm a philosopher! but can one really BE anything?'
i got 2:1 for all four courses.
going for damien hirsts next year
do you do history too? we should form a gang, solve historical inaccuracies in the public conscious
that and and all all inclusive grand theory of fun
was there any fun in the C.17th, Jenny Wormald?
youre outta the gang, post revisionism with a realist ftw
tell me about yer theory at bay
well arent you a busy little bee. how'd you do? (or are you joking)
first year though. so no biggie.
I got an average of 80%
But it's only first year at a Scottish uni, so that means that it's basically a fair bit I already did last year
