Results are in...

So I found on Tuesday that I passed my masters with Merit. I gained enough in my dissertation in order to be eligible to be accepted onto a PhD programme if I wanted to.

However . . .

I must say I wasn't very happy about the result and I spent some time beating myself up about it. I asked for some feedback and I was told that if anything I was probably slightly too descriptive in some places.

I've spoken to friends and they all say this is a good result, however I know that there will be others wanting to go to the Bar, into the same area of law, that will probably have masters degrees who obtained distinctions. I know that if I wanted to go on and do a PhD there would also be applicants with Distinctions.

So after being slightly disappointed with my result, I was told that I should try and get an article or two out of it! I am not sure exactly how possible this is. Given that I am currently very busy being unemployed. I may have to schedule in some time between eating, smoking and watching Come Dine With Me.

Thank you Barmaid.

Andro - I don't know. I am trying to get a few international internships this year. Then the BVC 2011-2012. So PhD may come after that! :S
I don't want to be 30 before I start earning decent money!

yay - congrats.. you have no reason to be beating yourself up ... it's a great result.

You don't seem overly jazzed about the prospect of a PhD and I guess it's not the type of thing to go into on a whim.

And really, Come Dine With Me - shame on you! :p

Congrats - you need to pencil in some time for feeling quite chuffed!
