So my degree result is in.

Upper Second Class, Master in Science, Molecular and Cellular Biology.

Not a 1st, but not a 3rd or a 2:2, so I'm happy.

Edit: Many thanks to all those who replied

Well, you gonna go on for a PhD?

Congrats, btw.
I dunno. I used to be keen on the idea, but after my honours project became less keen.

If the right subject in the right place comes up I might apply, if not, I'll sell-out and go into industry.

BIOLOGY SELLOUT!

Well, I plan on doing the same thing, lol. But go into research, not this marketing crap.

Nice. Thought MSci were given as merits etc instead of classes eg 2:1. Either way congrats. Amazing to have a degree. I can't wait and keep hoping I'll make it the next 4 years to get an MB. I had the OSCE today so was dressed up as a doctor (white coat, shirt n tie etc) n had a patient call me doctor in one of the stations, and it felt really weird but brilliant.

Well I meant research.

I like tinkering with gilsons too much to become a paper pusher.

I'm going to give you the best advice you can get for your second year- work your ass off.

Believe it or not, I've been told that the 2nd year is a breeze if you coped with the first (I'm working in IT btw, Trying for a CCNP & MCP/MCSE in the process too)
It's fairly good

Got 2 more years for my Bsc as well, could end up being 3 though, depending on the next few days.

Doesn't mean you can rest on your laurels. I say start working hard to get you in gear for the final year.

Slightly safer than my methanol + acetic acid mixing fetish, then
Sounds interesting.

I just like dropping liquid nitrogen on the floor and watching it dance.

It's safe as long as no one is wearing sandals

If the methanol isn't diluted enough, the mixture will explode on contact.

And I wish I was allowed to play with liquid nitrogen

It was necessary. I had to freeze some flies before I mashed em up to harvest their RNA.

Claim you need to snap-freeze somethin. (like a rubber glove )

Ooooh, one of my modules next year is Genetic Analysis. I may be able to wrangle liquid nitrogen. Is it as fun as watching mercury dance?

Can anything be better?
It melts below general freezing point doesn't it? Like -38/-40'c?

It is if there are people scared of liquid nitrogen it is VERY fun. They dance too.

You'll do fine I bet, I had written exams...

I write like a 6 year-old on paper, honest, it's atrocious.

When I sat this year I'd had a year off from academic science through doing the masters placement, thought when I came back I'd have forgotten everything, but everything comes back fairly quickly.

The most hellish parts were Honours project and dissertation. Or to be more accurate, the deadlines for them.
#35
Quote by Deliriumbassist
Hence why I'm going to try and get my dissertation research done by October.
My dissertation supervisor was a bit crap. Took him a week to reply to emails.

Ended up doing the whole thing with pretty much no direction. I was only worth <5% of the total though, so I didn't feel that bothered about it, and I felt I did pretty well on my own.

Congratulations!!
Aren't you kind of young for a Master? Most people I know achieve them at 30, etc...
It's an undergrad Masters, I had to do a year long project in industry in addition to a standard honours degree to qualify for it.
#38
that's awesome man

i'm also probably going to get into Molecular and Cellular Biology when i get into College, it's pretty interesting stuff.

I'm sorry if I seem condescending or rude here, but biology has to be my number one pick for most boring subject ever. Then again, everyone I know who studies it does it just because they want to work with medicine, because "it's such an important job", yet it's not hard to tell that they're doing it for the prestige and salaries.

I never was a good liar. I hope you enjoy the subject, though.
I'm a communist. Really.
