I am a Master!

I finally got my results back from Goldsmiths yesterday. I passed with merit! I have a Master's Degree!! *dance*



The suspense was killing me, especially when I saw folks in London posting on FB about getting their results back.But it finally came and I got pretty much what I had expected/hoped to get. Sill a pity we don't get feedback on our portfolios but, alas, what can you do.

Congrats.

Is "with merit" like "honors"?

Re: Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!!
From wikipedia.
Postgraduate masters degrees are generally classified as pass, pass with merit and pass with distinction, although not all universities incorporate merit. The percentage bandings for these award levels are usually 50%-59% (pass), 60%-69% (merit) and 70%+ (distinction), although a merit banding of only 65%-69% is used in some universities whilst a single pass banding of 50%-69% is usually used at universities that do not award a merit.

So merit is like cum laude (distinction would be magna cum laude) Though the numbers look really different, they don't award distinctions very lightly. The only girl I know who got a distinction was a girl who also got her undergrad degree at Oxford.
