    Better than 1 full, 4 solid partials anyway. It's kinda funny how some people's definition of destroyed by an exam is others definition of nailed it. I'm sure that'll be enough to get your place

    Yep Biological. No, it looks ok...at least the essays do. The only one that I think I'm going to have to do some serious thinking for is one asking you to outline an experiment on something I know nothing about. Anyway, I'm going to wait untill after results to do most of them...I don't want to spend ages on it, then miss the grades!

    It's a starter for us I guess, a taste of what may be to come! :P I agree though, it'll be best to start it all after results day. I'll dig into the reading list later on too, I need to finish the monster that is GoT first

    Haha I made the mistake of starting them during exams and then stopped halfway through Clash of Kings, the character development is so intricate so I'm starting it all again

    Aha, good decision to stop and start from the beginning then. I suppose you got into it through the TV series as well then? I just couldn't wait another year until the next series came out and my friends had been pressurising me to read the books for ages, so I was actually really excited about finishing my exams primarily because I could start reading them. Not the usual reason you'd associate with wanting the exam season to end. XD

    I say that but I've already been given a 40 page vocab booklet and books to read...

    Just graduated today in Computer Science. Finally was able to see the degree certificates (flimsy single A4 sheet things) for real and thought it'd be interesting to point out that it does not mention your subject, and it also does not mention any grades you have achieved. All of those things would be in your transcript instead. The certificate reads:




    University of Cambridge

    I hereby certify that
    Ukdragon37
    of Emmanuel College
    in the University of Cambridge
    was at a full congregation holden in
    the Senate-House on
    28 June 2013
    admitted to the degree of
    Bachelor of Arts

    Witness my hand this
    twenty eighth day of June, two thousand and thirteen

    *signatures*
    Administrative Officer
    Registrary of the University




    And then there was another one that had "Master of Engineering" instead of "Bachelor of Arts" since I stayed for fourth year (Part III).

    I wasn't expecting to get anything until after results day, but I suppose it makes sense to get reading lists out early-ish

    I suppose so. Although I signed up to a great education, not traditional nonsense. Unfortunately, it is a cross I will have to bear.
