  1. Guten Tag!
  2. Planning on doing so thank you!
  3. Yeah, make sense. I've not read much but I've certainly watched loads of german films millions of times so I'd be fine with that
  4. Don't apply until October, just like to be prepared! Yeah I'm thinking about putting some books and films down on my PS, hm.
  5. Hey Sorry to bother you but I was just wondering what your languages interview was like
  6. Eh, most research assistant jobs are more lab-based than what I want (something Psychology-y)...I could've done some actual experimenty things in Psychology labs, but I just didn't get my act sorted out...
  7. It was my fault really, I left it too late to start thinking about it so missed loads of deadlines :/

    Yeah still technically employed at Boots, but they don't think they'll have many spare shifts. I just want some unpaid work experience now - I'm going to write a load of begging letters to ask to do some shadowing or something menial like data entry!

    Yeah exactly, cash is cash!
  8. Ah, logical...having May Day in May...our May Week is after our exams, in June!

    Planning to try and get some work experience, but I've been rejected from everything I've applied for Really frustrating! How about you?
  9. Thought I'd reply on here instead of derailing the cucumber thread...

    You've still got exams? Ouch! I finished almost 3 weeks ago now! You guys don't really have a May Week though, do you? Good luck for the last one!
  10. +rep purely for the use of the word "trollalicious"

    About me
    I'm from Scotland, but now I live and study in England. I'm an ok person I guess :P I'm addicted to coffee, but unfortunately it doesn't help keep me alert or even awake, I just love the taste. I currently spend most of my times watching films dubbed into German and reading in said language (owing to being intimidated by the number of already fluent Germanists at Oxford in my year...).

    If you have any questions about applying to Oxford (or my college, St. Hilda's, which YES I did apply directly to (some people genuinely do this)), just tip me a PM or summat.
    Academic Info
    GCSE results: 5 A*s, 2 As and 3 Bs
    A-Level results: AAA
    AS-level result: C (Yup, a C)
    University/Course: Oxford/German (& linguistics now- changed after my first year)

    If anyone's wondering: I went from ABCC at AS level to AAA by the end of A2. If you work your arse off, you CAN do it, so go on, give it a try
    Interests
    Ok I'll put this in list form so it's easier:
    Reading
    John Grisham novels (The Painted House and The Appeal are my favourites)
    Horror Films (modern ones never really make the cut...but the original Amytiville Horror and TCM films are to die for :mwuaha: )
    Comedy Films (Mickey Blue Eyes takes the award for making me laugh the hardest)
    Debating (MUN included)
    Dancing like an absolute spasmod
    Singing (I now have a grade 8 distinction, diploma here I come!)
    Other musicy stuffs (I play clarinet (grade 7), but I love listening to anything that's sort of rock/punk/metal/combination of all three)
