Excellent news!

Some people might remember the fort my boy was building over the past few months, and the stress it caused to get it handed in on time.

Anyway, he got his results back today! 85%, which is the maximum they can give out, highest this year and joint highest ever. The marker described it as "stunning in every way."

I'm so proud of him right now!


  1. Awesome news! I expect he's very pleased with that :)

    How come they can't give more than 85%? seems a bit odd to me...

  2. It's to do with the way they moderate, because they have to moderate all the marks down so the pass mark is at 40%. It's quite weird and only used for humanities degrees. I don't really understand it, I think it's a bit mean tbh!

  3. I went back to look at the photos of the fort--it's enormous! Congrats to him. It's very cool!
