Examiners Report

I've just found the examiners report for our MPhil is available here. Probably Oxford-only, but I suppose it will only interest those of our cohort anyway. It doesn't say anything all that interesting, though it does point out that political theory seems to get a wider range of marks. No speculation on why that is, but it strikes me as mildly counter-intuitive. Generally 'arty' things tend to a greater bunching of marks, whereas I'd have thought political science might be more like maths/natural science in having a wider range of right and wrong responses.
