I believed that if you looked at the headlights of a car that were on full beam then you would go blind as people always said the lights were 'blinding'. I remember thinking it was very very mean of people to leav their full beam headlights on. What's more worrying, is the age I believed this until...

I'm no expert on the requirements for the course but I just wanted to say congratulations on getting a 2:1. It's so easy, with all the clin psy frenzy, to forget that a 2:1 is actually really good in the wider world. Good luck with your applications.
