Last week I got my results. I have a 2.1 BSc Honours degree in Applied Social Sciences (Criminology). Fantastically I got a first in my dissertation.
I feel great.
Today I have an interview for a placement on a Ph.D. scholarship programme.
Wish me luck.
Its been a long time since I last blogged. Rather a lot has happened. I rewrote, re-wrote, read, re-read, drafted and re-drafted my dissertation. it has to be one the best pieces I have ever written, I am waiting to get my mark and comments back for it. I studied for and finished my exams and am just waiting on the results. I applied for a scholarship to study web science at masters and phd level, I am waiting to hear back from that.
I wish I was that skinny
So, a lot of waiting. I am now pondering what to fill my days with to stop me eating not only my fingernails, the skin around my fingers but my whole hand as well. I am going to do some extra hours at work. I will also be doing some voluntary work when my security checks have been complete (I have been accepted as a prison volunteer at the local prison). I will also be losing 2 stone (pure fantasy, no matter how hard I try!). I will also be doing the usual family stuff which mainly involves drinking coffee and refereeing arguments.
I am more nervous about hearing about the application for the web science phd. I believe I have done enough to get a 2.1 in my B.Sc.. Unless something disastrous has happened I will be fine. I am worried about the application as in order to continue my studies I need to win a scholarship, and the competition for those is intense. I have a good research proposal (a big thanks to my friends for their help) and am very hopeful. I just hope the other applicants are rubbish.
I’ll get back to you when I have some news.
