    Let's boast about our intellectual prowess: what's your academic qualifications?
    How many BAs MAs PHDs etc. have we?
    Moi? Well I got nine O levels, 4 A levels and a CQSW: erm, that's it really.

    York, UK
    6 O's, 2 CSE's
    2 A's (but very low grade)
    1 BA (third class)
    1 BSc (first class)
    1 MSc
    trying to finish a PhD.

    Not sure of the value of them, really, now that I realise I just want a moderately interesting, not too stressful job that pays the bills. As I said recently, it's more the process of getting them, I value than the result - the travelling, not the destination.

    I don't like responding to these kinds of questions. Makes it feel like bragging. (Not that I'm a particle physicist or owt).
