Kings College London - BSci Mathematics with Astrophysics
Admin Assistant - Marked by Teachers
Well what can I say, I'm a 19 year old, currently studying Mathematics with Astrophysics at King's College London (now going into second year) So far having a brilliant time, and loving my astrophysics
I also do hope to become a space scientist one day
If you want to PM me about King's in general or applying for maths, feel free! However, don't PM me about non-maths subjects/Moderator stuff.

One more complaint, and then I'll shut up.
Went to the loo. Came back, sat down, read through what I've written so far. Looked at my handwritten notes. Skimmed through the source material. Read my progress so far again. Did a double-take. Read it a third time.
The end of the second paragraph now appears to read "6x 50g balls, double knit, dusky pink".
Apparently my nanna phoned up with an addition to her weekly shopping list and my brother, finding no pen lying around, decided to just type it into the open Word document on my laptop...
Worst and weirdest things to happen during sex?

Not during actual sex, but when I was a young, naive and adventurous teen my mother walked in on my poor boyfriend covered in Ben & Jerry's ice cream.
Luckily he had time to pull the blanket up to his neck, and my mum thought he was just cold (which I'm sure he probably was).
Cambridge - Emmanuel College - OFFER AA 11 (Firm)
King College London - OFFER AA (Insurance)
York - OFFER AB (Declined)
Nottingham - OFFER BB/AC (Declined)
Durham - Grey College - Rejected
Due to various of reasons, I didn't make my Cambridge grades. However, I think it's worked out for the best and couldn't imagine myself anywhere bar King's
Also, a lot of people are wondering about my grades and offers. I didn't take a gap year and applied with my AS grades. I think luck was on my side
