"Zoe duck duck"...
How've you been?
I heart your avatar!
Great! I'm sure Norton1 will be happy to hear it.
Yeah, well I only got one VS because I didn't have the style of the apps down - it's only after seeing someone else's that I realised my Year 6 swimming and cycling proficiency probably should've gone into my personal statement first time around. I think there are 15 that I really want to apply to (because they're interesting) but the rest are just big firms like you worked for, which are a bit of a turnoff. I need to average two or three a day and already I'm six behind!
Anyway, how are you? Been up to much?
To be honest, there's not a great deal to write from my perspective. Essentially, it'd be this post, but put much less curtly! I'm guessing it'd involve a compilation of other people's thoughts on their subjects though - a bit like the pros/cons of each Cambridge college given on the wiki. The earliest I could start this would be August though, since I'm doing training contract applications at the moment.
The blog post doesn't bother me that much since I've only seen TSR members reference it once; it's just frustrating to have to be posting the same thing daily.*
*I know this can easily be solved by leaving the internet and going outside, but it's not as big a deal to me as my post undoubtedly makes it sound.
Did that work? What shows in your quote widget?

Heh, I'm amused that as a mod you're still able to post on my "wall" since I've turned that off.
I ask because there have been at least six threads asking which A Levels to take for Law recently and I was wondering whether there's any possibility of getting such a thread stickied. I'd be happy to write the first post (and update it as and when with links to other interesting resources) because every time someone spreads misinformation about Law A Level it makes me weep. Even TSR's "insight" blog post has been written by someone who's not fully informed, but it can't be updated.
I appreciate that this is something of a long shot, but since veterans have asked me as an FA whether I could get it stickied (!), I thought it was worth asking. Thanks.
Evening Zoe. Out of interest, are you and Craggy restricted to Cam(Chat) in terms of modding, or do you cover all of SocSci University Courses? I'm sure you've mentioned it before, but I can't remember the answer. Thanks!
I'm truly sorry for the general insouciance and overall facetiousness of the topic. I actually had proposed quite a serious motif, but people had the doggedness to begin to stigmatise my method of conversing envisaging that I was 'trying to be arrogant', or that 'I was eccentric/a retard'.
"Salutations to my fellow TSR'ians.
I'm currently completing my GCSE's (hopefully ), and I was just slightly curious of a few things about the Cambridge Maths course.
Simply, I've had such a rapacious fervor for theoretical Physics since I was fourteen. I was self-teaching myself AS-level Physics when I was 15, and studying with A-level students this year, helping them out with a couple of predicaments here and there in Mechanics . Although, I've come to realise that I'm not in favour of the superfluity of Physics at times with all the gratuitous wording and sheerly banal forms of having to write so rigorously to mark-schemes. To study a more theoretical-base of Physics, would it be more sagacious to study Mathematics or Natural Sciences? Saying this, my envisionment is that Mathematics is the aphoristic form of everything and retracts from the otiose form of English and humanities which I really do loathe.
I've read around C1-C2, and those aren't too laborious, and have been familiarising myself with FP1, and I hope it's not too onerous. Please don't ascribe sentiments that I'm arrogant because I hope to apply to Cambridge. :P I see many people here asserting, "I've achieved X A*'s, can I apply", when it's conspicuous to an oaf that they can and are just pretentious.
I'm sorry if I blabbered on like a highfalutin chump, but that's my fashion.
N.B: I've read around Physics primarily; Feynman's lectures, QED, Six Easy problems and I've read some books by Greene, and also I've perused over Einstein's papers. I'm hoping to read more Russell and other Mathematical works over the Summer. "
That was my initial post. Once again, I'm rueful for the inconvenience caused.
I have just been stalking the TSR pages and I have just seen that you had an interview for VS at Withers and you seem to be extreeemely helpful...so I was just wondering whether you could give me any advice/tips?! I am SO nervous, its basically one of the only 2 firms I (stupidly) applied for. Could you tell me anything about the written exam maybe? Was the interview mainly competency questions, or was there lots of commercial awareness? I bought my first ever issue of The Economist today, hopefully it'll help!
