Reference for Joseph Mooney

Joe completed a BA in History and Russian at Wadham College, Oxford in summer 2013. In his Preliminary examinations, he received marks of 71% and 68% in his history papers (and was therefore awarded a distinction for this part of his degree), and marks of 69% (translation into Russian and grammar exercises), 65% (translation from Russian and comprehension), 65% (poetry) and 64% (prose texts) in his Russian papers. He went on to achieve a good upper second in finals. Joe’s greatest strength is probably his command of the spoken and written language. He spent his year abroad studying Russian at a local university in Pyatigorsk, and then took a master's course in St Petersburg, so has a very pleasing accent, consolidated an already wide vocabulary and refined his command of syntax and grammar. In his literary work, he proved himself capable of writing interesting and informed essays, showing a solid understanding of the set texts, as well as familiarity with some of the secondary literature and historical context. In tutorial discussion, Joe often proved himself capable of saying much more than was contained in his essays. As a person, Joe is serious, measured and careful with words, although he also has a good sense of humour and can show himself to be passionate about his interests.
Subject:
Russian
Outcome:
He achieved an upper second in his Russian and History degree at Oxford.
