Wrangler (University Of Cambridge)
At the University of Cambridge
University of Cambridge
in England, a "WRANGLER" is a student who gains first-class honours in the third year of the University\'s undergraduate degree in mathematics . The highest-scoring student is the Senior Wrangler , the second highest is the SECOND WRANGLER, and so on. At the other end of the scale, the person who achieves the lowest exam marks while still earning a third-class honours degree (and therefore, more to the point, who achieves the lowest exam marks while still earning an honours degree at all) is known as the wooden spoon . Until 1909, the University made the rankings public. Since 1910 it has publicly revealed only the class of degree gained by each student. An examiner reveals the identity of the Senior Wrangler "unofficially" by tipping his hat when reading out the person's name, but other rankings are communicated to each student privately
