So, some of you may recall about a month or two ago me disappearing from the forums except to freak out over my exams. Well, results are in today.

To give a bit of context the grades are arranged thusly:

A1, A2, A3, A4, A5 = 1st
B1, B2, B3 = 2:1
C1, C2, C3 = 2:2
D1, D2, D3 = 3rd

With 1 being the highest in each boundary and 3 (or 5) being the lowest. My results are:



Holy shit! In Scotland our 3rd and 4th years are the only ones that count towards our final BSc grade (5th year also counts if you do an MSci) but they are equally weighted. My GPA is so high that provided I get a minimum of a B3 average next year, I can walk out with a 1st Class BSc in Physics. Alternatively I can just smash next year and then need less than B3 from 5th year of a 1st Class MSci in Physics.

Either way this is really good because it mean when I got to apply for PhDs next year and they say "What are you predicted to graduate with?" I can basically guarantee them I'll get a 1st meaning my prospects of getting a PhD straight out of Bachelors really improved.

In short, I am unbelievably happy with these grades

That's excellent!
I work for a university and I'm a grad student at another and that's awesome.
As a student I'm cheering for ya' and as a member of academia I'm proud of you. =)

^ Nice one! Keep up the good work, Nord. Your band seems to really be taking off

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Being ridiculously out of shape, I'm rather pleased to have completed a 10k run this morning.
Fifth from last, but I finished it!

Nice one! While I bet you probably had the odd "why the f... am I doing this" moment when you were running, I bet you feel great now.

I was happy for the first 4k (approx.) as I got to gawp at some young lassies awesome behind, but she soon vanished into the distance.
By about 7k yeah, "What the fuck am I doing!?", and by the 8.5k it was "Go on without me, tell my family I love them!".....
