I’ve gotta say, after doing my final exams on the 7th and 9th August, waiting to find out my final results has been a difficult task. It was made significantly easier by being on holiday, so I guess I can’t complain too much, but still, a tricky wait!
I actually got my results for my breastfeeding OSCE after my final exam on the 9th, which was a little bit of a relief – I’d been quite nervous after that exam, not quite sure how I’d done or what I’d missed out, so knowing that I had got a good grade in that was a big weight off my mind (managed to get a 1st which I was absolutely buzzing about!)
Our final results came through as M and I were sat in the airport on the way back from Spain just a few days ago – cue me getting completely exasperated at the slow internet in Malaga airport, and tapping violently at the screen of my iPhone, desperate to check I’d actually passed everything…
…which, thankfully I had!
The exam that I thought had gone horribly, I was actually only 1 mark off a first, and everything else was fine (I was ecstatic to find out that I got 100% in my drugs calculation exam too!) – I put all my grades and modules into a uni grade calculator and it came out that I have finished first year with a 1st! So so pleased!
It just goes to show that you can have a significantly weaker module and still manage to get a first – my essay for the research module, although I passed, was no grade to shout about, and massively pulled my average down, but I still managed it! Bit of a relief really, heading into second year and knowing that I can still aim for a first even if there is a module that isn’t so strong…I guess we will see…
