    Since I do a joints honors agree, new information has come to light saying I have to pick between English Literature or Philosophy for the class I have to graduate with.

    I'm kind of annoyed at this as I've made some good friends from both courses and I'd love to be with both of them to take pics with and celebrate together. But now, I will be celebrating with just one class which is quite sad considering I've so far spent time with both friends from both subjects.

    How does anybody with joint honors decide which class they'll be graduating with?

    Aww that's a pity, I did joint honours too and I sat with joint honours people, maybe you were the only one doing that combo in your year? I guess if you HAVE to choose, think of which one you feel most affiliated with academically and how well you got on with the tutors, especially if you had mates on both courses. And maybe try to go for drinks with the other group after theirs to celebrate, if you're still on campus during their ceremony?

    Thanks for this.

    No, I have a friend who is also doing the same joint honours. However, in a subject rep meeting, we discussed that my uni is about to stop many joint honours degree programmes because it's becoming too complicated for the system each year in and out. So maybe this is why I can't go to both.

    It's really difficult to choose as I have more of a relationship with my Philo peers outside of the lecture theatres. As we go out and socialise. But with my Lit peers it's always "how was your weekend" or "how did you find the assessment" when we're waiting for the lec to begin. So maybe that counts towards which class I should graduate with.

    And yeah, I really want to have drinks with other group but I have no idea if the graduate ceremony re on the same day. I hope not. But tbf, I don't wanna rent out a gown twice anyway so I'll have to choose!
