Preliminary QT results

This afternoon, in the exam schools, twenty-five names were posted on the board: results for our qualifying test. Since there are 28 people in the program, that means that three people have either asked not to have their names displayed or failed.

I was among the twenty-one who are known to have passed. Among the twenty-five listed, there are also four distinctions. I am told this is the highest number in at least five years. Last year, there were two. My energetic congratulations to Iason, Bryony, Matthew, and Robert Wood. The three unknowns could be any combination of passes, fails, and distinctions.

We will have numeric grades posted to us sometime in the next few days. Since the results are now officially in, I have re-posted the three questions that I chose to answer.

PS. On an unrelated note, Emily and I are meant to give a tour of Oxford to Martin Ziguele, Former Prime Minister of the Central African Republic, tomorrow morning. Tonight, he is presenting before the Strategic Studies Group, meaning I will be having dinner with him, Sheena, and Claire in New College.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  2. Dear Milan,
    Congratulations on having passed the QT! I knew that you would, but I guess it must be reassuring to know that you are on the right tract. Mica is doing his final exams now. Take care and enjoy the spring.

  3. Milan, you’ve got me there. I am trying, trust me, but I can not think of a smartass comment to make about giving a tour to the former CAR PM. There’s got to be a smartass comment, I know it’s out there somewhere…

    Oh well, maybe one of the many Anonymous posters will have something catty and/or pretentious to say ;)

    Congrats on getting through the exams!

  4. Kerrie,

    I don’t doubt that a smartass comment could be made. The man was the leader of a country of 3.7M people for about three years, but somehow the whole experience was unenlightening.
