    At Worcester they're somewhat more generous. They give you £200 a year (guaranteed to all scholar's), a £70 one-off 'golden hello', and dinner with the provost in your final year (or if you can sneakily confuse the college admin regarding whether your course is 3 or 4 years, two dinners!)
    :eek:

    Do you know if exhibitioners get that as well? I don't think I've got a shot at dinner with the Provost otherwise and it sounds like such fun...

    Btw OP, I'd really listen to the advice on here and go and look at the mark schemes. I got a mid 2.2. for my Mods and aside from the fact that I was crap at most of the course, it became quite obvious where I'd lost marks when I looked at the mark schemes and examiner's report later on :yes:

    Ok, I know that one needs to obtain a first in all of their prelims exams, (not just one) to get a distinction!
    Errrm, I'm not sure if it's different for science subjects or even if it varies across arts subjects, but for History prelims that's not the case. You get a distinction if you 1) average above 66% overall, 2) have no marks lower than 60 and 3) have two marks of 70 or above.

    Presumably you remember the gist of the arguments in your essays; why can't you just go over what you wrote with your tutor? Presumably he/she would be able to pick some holes in your answers and tell you all of the points you didn't consider.
    Can other people really remember in detail what they wrote? I can recall general areas that I covered, sure, but not the way in which I integrated them with my general argument or the specific examples I used. There are probably numerous ideas which Exam Panic Waffle Mode conned me into thinking constituted highly relevant points. I personally have no complaint with my results, but I don't think it's unreasonable, or a waste of time, for students to want to see their exam scripts in some cases.

    I'm pretty sure the finalists' scholars dinner excluded Exhibitioners, but included other types of scholar's (instrumental, etc.)
    Saying that, it seems like a long time ago now, and I can't remember the exact makeup of the people there.

    You get cash if they make you a scholar, which often-usually happens if you get a distinction. Hence the discussion above.
