Darren Lim Wei Hao was surprised to learn he had obtained First Class Honours in his University of London result (Accounting and Finance pathway).
Ambitious Darren had aimed for a First from Year 1 of the course. His Year 1 results pointed to him achieving that goal when he scored 3 As and 1 B.
But subsequently a number of factors dented his confidence and caused him to have doubts – he failed Corporate Finance in Year 2, although he obtained 2 As and 1 B in the other papers.
In Year 3, Darren had to take an additional paper Financial Management to make up for his failed paper Corporate Finance in Year 2. He scored a B in that paper and in the other 4 papers, he obtained A, B, B and D grades. He thought he had to get 2 As to qualify for a First, but apparently UOL considered his cumulative grades good enough to award him First Class Honours. This was a complete surprise for Darren.
Congratulations, Darren for having faith in yourself and striving for the best!
