M.Phil results


in Daily updates, M.Phil thesis, Oxford

This afternoon, after my final meeting with Dr. Hurrell, I got back one copy of my thesis and my grades for the M.Phil:

To put those in perspective, have a look at the scale of marks. The thesis grade is a bit of a disappointment, especially considering how I expended well over one hundred times more effort on the thesis than on the exams. I only began serious exam revision after getting back from the Lake District on June 3rd. Based on the very crude method of taking the mean of the five grades, I got 70.2 overall.

Since the thesis is now publicly available in the Bodleian, it seems appropriate to make it publicly available online as well: Expertise and Legitimacy: The Role of Science in Global Environmental Policy-Making.This version has about two dozen minor errors corrected. If you find more, please let me know and I will make the appropriate changes in the electronic version.

Tough break on the thesis. 75 and 77 are awesome, however.

Congrats! In my experience most people get better marks on the exams. It great that you got some distinctions.

Those are some very good exam marks. The thesis mark is a bit of a surprise, but that’s how these things go sometimes (a lot can still depend on your examiner, etc)

I know that Evelyn Goh was one of the examiners. She left a letter addressed to herself between some of the last pages of the copy of the thesis that got handed back to me.

I hear there were four distinctions in your year. As far as I know, that is unprecedented.

I wonder if anyone will ever check my thesis out of the Bodleian.

I will! If I make it into the MPhil from over here in Australia. Fascinating topic…
