    Think of places like Iceland which have had very, very little immigration and a lot of inbreeding (not within close relations obviously, but over the long run). I am sure there are people in Iceland who would not reach beyond Iceland at 6 degrees of seperation.

    True, but over the whole world, I doubt it could be done.

    My were e-mailed to me, not posted, so bug your DoS and you might get them sooner. I have no idea where I came in the year, somewhere middling I assume, and that's fine
    Yeah, I bugged my tutor's secretary and coincidentally they are being sent today. I'm not sure I even believe her story.

    By the way, I thought we got told how well we came in the year no matter how well we did. Or do they only tell the people in the top 10 or something?

    I thought that was his point too? Proof by falsification.

    No, I didn't get told my position in the year. In the lists outside Senate House, it's only done by class, and then alphabetically. Outside of the top 10, I doubt it would mean much, you'd have 10s of people separated by 0.1% or something :rolleyes:

    Proof by falsification? You what? :confused:

    I reckon even the very top marks will be close together. Just my opinion though. Also, there are two people in the college next door to me who I reckon stand as good a chance as any of being in the top 10. :eek: I keep wondering whether I should email them and find out. :rolleyes:

    Wow! If you are then I'm very impressed (and not a little intimidated ). Good luck for when you do get them

    Thank you for not taking me down tho. I wouldn't have been very impressed if I had heard someone say what you thought I'd said!

    Well, I did think it was funny that you should say that, but if I'd done that well, I'd be really excited, so don't worry about it! I'm getting used to mediocrity

    i've realized how unpredictable the tripos can be - a fellow medic from college, who i thought was the best amongst us and strong contender for a top 10 finish, got a 2nd apparently... :confused: :rolleyes:

    don't know the trinity medics that well, but of the 2 i vaguely recognize, one of them seems a likely candidate for your comment...

    helenia, no shame getting your very decent results in the tripos. seriously.

    (AFAIK, everybody will get their uni ranking by post. and for the poor people who came in 300+, it must be really demoralizing. what i'm trying to work out though, is whether the vets are lumped in with us in a combined ranking, or are they seperate.)

    My average is only 4% above the First borderline. Methinks there are 60 people all very close together!

    Thank you, by the way
