So, after the best part of 12 months sweating and a five year training programme, today was do-or-die day. Possibly literally.

The College kept us waiting, and their results webpage recorded something like 25000 hits during the day, which, considering there were less than 100 people waiting it out, is pretty good.


I fucking passed.

Take that world.

I can now add FCEM to my motley collection of qualifications.

Thank Christ.

Nice work sir. I fear you may now have more post-nominal letters than I.

DrShroom said...

Thanks all; tho actually, I've not added so much exchanged an "M" for an "F".
For the record, and showing off purposes my talley is:
MB BS BSc.(Hons) MRCS(Eng) FCEM. However, what i don't have is a doctorate, so still remain onlly an honourary Doctor, unlike Dr Jon

Best get a doctorate now to complete your collection, hey?!
