    First world problem here (pun unintended).

    I got a Distinction in my Prelims and First in my Finals a couple of years ago, informally (very informally) known as a Double First.

    Do you think it's too pretentious to put it on my LinkedIn?

    Thanks!

    Yeah - probably the more sensible option.

    Torn between vanity and sensibility.

    No problem

    I think sensibility isthe best way to go. I know the pull of vanity can be a strong one though!

    Well, you could avoid the term double first and just go with Distinction in Prelims and First in Finals They'll get that

    'Double first' is a known term among Oxbridge grads and people who tend to employ Oxbridge grads though. Writing a CV is all about making yourself sound impressive - i would put it.
