...my DD1 has just called to say she has got a First class degree. She was working until 10 and has only just found out.

I am ridiculously happy for her as we have been through a lot as a family and she has done so well.

I don't care if anyone replies to this post, i just needed to tell someone. I am very, very happy grin.

That's brill, congrats grin

Wow!! That's fab!!! What subject? What is she planning to do now?

Wow, that is brilliant!

No wonder you are proud, great news! I'm sure it was well deserved.

Her subject was Theology and Religious Studies hmm.

She is working as a waitress right now while she contemplates her future. She was working so hard she had no time to apply for any graduate positions while completing her degree.

She plans on applying for graduate schemes over the next few months but she has no clear plan. It is not exactly a subject with loads of routes into jobs!

She is a smart girl and a hard worker. I have no doubt she will find something which suits her before long.

well done to your dd! I'm a uni lecturer and know that 1sts are very hard to come by these days. She must be an exceptional and hard working young woman wine

Spinaroo Fri 13-Jun-14 23:03:38

Sounds great! Hope you have a chance to celebrate in style when she has a free shift! Is she having a graduation ceremony?

rootypig Fri 13-Jun-14 23:04:28

A first class degree is a real achievement. Well done her, and you.

Great news - you have every right to feel proud and shout it from the rooftops smile

littlewhitebag Fri 13-Jun-14 23:08:27

She has been out for a drink with her boyfriend and they are on their way home right now to celebrate (but i am in my pyjamas!).

Her graduation is next Thursday and we are all going (Me, DH, DD2, her grandparents and her boyfriend)

Whoop whoop whoop!

OP congratulations on all your hard work, raising your wonderfully intelligent hard working DD. yay!

Well done to your daughter! I remember being in tears when I found out I'd got a First, phoned my mum and then both us were blarting down the phone to each other .....

Your daughter won't forget that feeling for a long time, I bet!
