First Class Hons and My Pretty University
This year I gained a First class Hons in InfoSec. Yes, I have a First class Hons degree – and I have to pinch myself to believe it.
Next comes the Masters. The difference will be like day and night, I go from Script Kiddie to Zero day exploit creator. Or not…
What are my concerns? Firstly, the shift to a higher gear. It’s like a car. The education system takes you through first and second gear. At A level you’re in third gear, and coasting along quite nicely. Then undergraduates go to fourth and fifth gear.. now we’re supposed to be capable of greater things. Suddenly sixth gear looms… and you’re speeding down the motorway at full pelt. Reaction times have to speed up. Learning times have to speed up. It’s like a games console… it’s insane.
The class will be too advanced for “textbooks”. Good grief. **Hangs head** Can I panic now? I’m scared of my memory failing to memorise at these speeds. Yet this is the chance of a lifetime; I would probably always regret this, if I let this opportunity go.
I have loved this University; the teamwork has been spectacular, and worth experiencing, just to see how a team should operate.
My pretty little University, I owe her so much 🙂
