    Do your own self test. Start here:


    A question: what do you intend to do with a Masters in theoretical particle physics? The probability of you actually working in that area is extremely small without a PhD, especially in light of the fact that there are many theoretical particle physicists with PhDs also looking and competing for the same jobs.
