Hi, I saw that you had posted in a thread last year on AQA French A2 speaking. I was just wondering - in terms of the choice of the 2 stimulus cards, are they both on the same topic but different sub-topics (i.e. Enivornment - one on pollution and the other on renewable energies) or completely different topics (e.g. a card on racism and a card on pollution)? Many thanks in advance!
Exactly. How convenient! Oh, good for you! Nevertheless it'll still be useful to go. I still can't bring myself to firm it, been completely avoiding making any decisions whatsoever, haha.
No problem. Probably not, it's quite short notice. Maybe I'll go to the next one, depends how well in advance they let you know. How about you?
Hellooo. I got an email today about a UCL open day, assuming you got the same one. It's on 27th March but then it says there'll be another in April if you can't make this one.
Hey again! Nope, I haven't heard anything since I got my offer. I doubt I would go as it's too much effort to get down to London and I have work etc. But I'll let you know if and when I do hear anything.
Yeah. Those are definitely pro points for UCL. I noticed that it had slipped from 1st to 5th place, not sure if that's worrying or not as I also have an offer from York, which is currently higher up than UCL! I guess we shouldn't rely on league tables too much...
Wow, yes of course. I'm definitely steering towards UCL more and more, it's highly likely I'll end up choosing it, especially since it's taken so much for me to finally get in.
Ah don't worry about it, I've done it plenty of times. Thanks! Oh that's great - I'm trying to decide between UCL, Nottingham and Manchester and it's impossible. What is making you steer towards UCL?
Hey, sorry I never replied, you posted the message on your own profile so I never saw it, haha. Anyway I had the interview and I got in - I found out this Monday! Thanks for all your help. And let me know what you decide - maybe we'll see each other in September!
Hey! I saw you got an offer from UCL on the English offers 2013 page and was hoping you wouldn't mind me asking what your interview was like and what kind of questions were asked?
Yeah, I just wasn't really grabbed by the course or the city though. :/
That sounds good! Better to err on the side of smart probably, despite what they tell you about being 'comfortable'.
I didn't see many, although when I was waiting in the common room to be called for my interview a class had to come in and use the room because the one they were supposed to be in was taken or something.. Unfortunately it wasn't an English class so I couldn't spy.
