Exam Results & Graduation Pack

Today I (finally) got my exam results back. I'm very very happy. I pretty much knew what all but 2 of them were. One of those two I knew was to be my worst mark, and as I'm taking 13 modules when I only need 12 my worst mark won't count towards my final grade. So it was just the other modules I was waiting to hear about really, and that was a bit of toughy that could have turned bad. As it happens I did pretty darn well in that too :) I need an average of 64% this year if I want to come out with a 2:1 overall. As it happens my average is 66%! If you don't count virology, its 69%!! So long as I keep this up, then fingers crossed I should be getting a nice degree certificate come july.

As for graduation, we received our graduation packs today. Its kinda hit me now that in just a few months I will be graduating. I obviously always knew that I would be, but this is still going to be one of the proudest days of my life. Its been quite a struggle to get to this point. The first year of uni was pretty bad and I'm glad I stuck it out. I think it will be a really nice way to end my time here. Our graduation ceremony will take place in the cathedral (which is on the hill that overlooks the campus, and the whole of Guildford really) and then there will be high tea in the marquee which I'm assuming will be on the PATs field. All this takes place on the 15th July, and then I think of the friday we will have grad ball - a massive night long party to say a final farewell to surrey and the people I've met here. Not exactly sure what it will like this year, but usually there is fareground rides, a live band, numerous DJ's etc and then an afterparty down by the lake. And since I've lost so much weight, I'm having to have my dress for the ball in second year taken in! It should be a really nice end to what has been quite a big year for me :)
