Provisional exam results were posted at the end of last week and I’m quite happy with them. All ‘B’s – one high, one mid, one low – which has been pretty much my average thus far. The good thing is that there were no ‘A’s. If there were I would have felt compelled to work harder and try for a first. As it is, a first is unlikely and a 2:1 looks do-able. So I can continue to have a sensible study/life balance. Does this mean I’m an under-achiever? Perhaps, but it’s a pragmatic view based on the fact that I don’t actually need to get a first.
