Smason5!! Dilemma!! So I now have the option of going to a very good boys' school for Sixth Form (King's College, Wimbledon). On one hand, very good facilities, extraordinarily good teaching, impressive stats (25% of last year got into Oxbridge). On the other hand, I will lose my teachers who are actually pretty good - maybe on par with King's - teachers who I am comfortable with and will write me good references for Uni, and lose maybe concentration (I go to a girls' school, and King's is boys with a mixed Sixth). I really don't know if it's worth it or not! Do you have any advice? I'm going to the Open Evening next Tuesday, so I've only seen the outside so far. So sorry to bother you, get back to me whenever you have time! How are you finding life at Oxford?
Hey smason5, I forgot to ask, how were results? Hope all went well. How's packing going? Just thought you'd like to know, I'm being a lot less lazy this year and revising at weekends for everything (eg. one weekend French and German, one weekend, sciences etc) and so far it's helping a TINY bit. I'm also doing all my homework on Fridays *feels like an aspiring med student*
I never actually asked, how did your A-level results go?? Obviously you've done beyond well
Aw thank you! Conditional? What?!?! But wow, how was the study? What was the doctor like? I myself just went to Mongolia on holiday, so incredible! Have you packed yet? How exciting!! Good luck to you too!
Well you'll be happy to know I only just got them this morning and got 9A*s and 3 As
Just missed out on the tenth A* with Geography (359 for 360 needed)
But Yeah . Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Maths, R.E, French (somehow, some way), History, English Lit and English Language were my A*s - Geography and ICT (2) being As
Good luck by the way again and thanks for the great advice as always: we'll definitely speak again! If your not busy of course!
And this was the message i tried to send you, dunno if you've read it or not
Well I go to a public school, not a state school so I'll be alright. i have a prospectus and read through it so that's kinda sorted. I guess I'll cross the female and far-away colleges off the list. Do you think I'll be able to get work experience in year 12' summer with a GP? Cause its too late now :P. And do you live in London? If so what GP did you enquire to concerning Work exp?
The interviews actually don't seem so bad!? Not to say it's easy but that's a load off my shoulders. WHat kind of reasons did you give for picking medicine, bad aspects and the "why pick me" question (the killer!?) - it's not that I can't think for myself, but I'd like an idea that I'm along the right lines of thinking ( <-- That's my excuse? Pathetic!)
I'll try to work extremely hard so that I get high UMS marks for AS, so applying for Oxford/ Cambridge could change as plans may change depending on how I do
What you said:"Rather than them wanting to know the answers they wanted you to think and try and work through the question. EG: In AS we learn about nerve impulses and so they asked about the heart and how the SAN sends an impulse so I linked the 2", I understand what your saying: to expand on what you know to try to answer a problem, calling upon you knowledge.
You've been a stalwart helper! Some people would be cold and answer in as little detail as possible, but not you .
THATs AWESOME! Congratulations!!!!!!!! And Wales was good thanks! Good luck with Cambridge
Dammit, I don't think my response to this sent
Anyway, I'm off to Wales for two weeks, Have fun in your endeavours, Sam (I presume)
