Not too good unfortunately.  :( I got enough points to get my master's degree but not enough to get into a PhD program.

It was all my fault, though. I had too many parallel projects going on and couldn't dedicate enough time and energy to study for the test.

I had basically 24h to study 'nociception and modulation of pain' before giving a class to be judged by a panel of three PhDs, one of which was my neurophysiology professor.

Luckily yes, I can. My neurophysiology professor suggested that I try again after I complete my master's. She knows my research project is a little...complicated. :lol:

Not too good unfortunately.  :(

:therethere:

Yeah. :sad sigh: But it's ok. I've grieved and accepted the outcome.  :) At least I can do it again when my life's a little less hectic.
