Hello everyone! I'm a third year MML student at Cambridge, and I'm in the bewildering and slightly frightening position of deciding what to do next. Thankfully, I have a fourth year!
I'm seriously considering the Mst in modern and medieval languages, specialising in medieval French literature.
I achieved a first in my first year, but a 2.1 in my second year. I was hospitalised for over a week with suspected meningitis, and I also suffered from severe depression as a consequence. I achieved firsts in 2 of my 3 literature papers, but I also achieved 2.2s in two language papers (1 mark off a 2.1!)
I'm predicted to achieve a first in my final year, since I have a strong dissertation and a year in France to improve my language skills. Hopefully I won't end up in hospital in fourth year...!
I know that you guys aren't in a position to tell me if my academic transcript is weak, but do you think that this, in and of itself, could be detrimental to my application? Or are other areas (research proposal, sample writing, references) considered on an equal basis?
