    Yeah, what????


    AND LOL I KNOW RIGHT I saw. I was like, ****... 11 pages of people who had never even accessed the page. Classy.
    I mean, I would tweak it and make it better till 5, but really when can you not improve something....
    Its not worth it, they did mention 12 before

    Yeah tbh it doesn't really matter where you do it as long as it gets you where you wanna be. Haha wherebouts are you fromm?

    Innnit imagine sitting waiting for your interview at goldsmiths...
    I'm up in Sheffield, miles away from anything really!
    That'd be the most awkward thing ever, really hope that doesn't happen :|

    In the end, the Goldsmiths e-portfolio application was open until 10 PM... finally the end of it though! We'll know soon enough. Good luck, everyone!

    The foundation at Camberwell's huuuge, isn't it? How many people do you know on it? :eek: I have a friend who's on the course as well.
    It's great because it doesn't feel huge - yet the 'audience' is there if you want it!! I would have to say that it feels like there's only about 100 people in the building each day! I know there's a few more - but I don't notice it! It's certainly not crowded.

    We have a fair amount of space and it's very personal. I have had my tutor from day one of the course - which is fab. We also have a lot of other tutors we can talk to if we want. A lot of the tutors are actually on the selecting teams (within UAL) for choosing BA applicants (during the interviews and reviews) - which is so useful when they are helping you put together your portfolio!

    good luck everybody waiting, i share your pain...

    & btw didn't mean to 'diss' camberwell or south london I know people who attend who are very happy living in that area/ peckham. South London is a very student friendly place. I just like the thrill of diversity in central london and how easy it is for me with my student oyster card, to be at British museum in a few minutes etc... the buses are good South of the River but i used to get migraines going through Peckham.. when i was there so many preachers would get on the bus and start chanting about God! got to be everyday, but the route from East Dulwich to Elephant and Castle was really long. If I went to Camberwell instead of LCC it would have been much easier to live where i did.

    My tutor went to Chelsea, he said that development work is really important to them - I included 3 sheets of development work which related to my final pieces (on each development page I combined several relevent sketchbook pages) - but who knows if this is right or not - It has to make sense to your work and process... good luck!

    idk if this is a stupid question but um my ucl drop off is tomorrow and they want people to label each piece with the date in addition to the name and like well everything is from either 2011 or 2012 and so do i do that and get over my distaste for repetition or do i put in the month as well.

    idek i think putting in the month might just be stupid but i cant decide, somebody do it for me?

    NO month. Do you see professional artists putting the month they did their work in? Probably not.

    Well its all about academic cycle, January to April = last year, and September to December = the following year, that is a big difference for some people, I would say especially for tutors and students.

    Soares brings up a good point, but I'd say it's pretty likely they can spot the difference between A-level and foundation work, so really, no month is needed.

    And I feel your pain. ;_; Dropped mine off today (check the postcode beforehand, by the way, as the place is a little tricky to find - gotta go right past Slade, go waaay down and then turn left and then turn right and then turn right again. Follow the people with the portfolios~) and after I collected it, I got an email from UCAS saying something on my form had changed. Thought I had gotten an instant rejection from Slade, but no. Says "Withdrawal" from Kingston - no idea why, maybe because I'm going through the internal system... and bastards. Nearly gave me a heart attack and I couldn't check because I was underground.

    It's really not fair, 12 should mean 12!

    no they werent allowing any files to upload past 12, so even if it was accessible or open i dont think it wouldve made a difference to our applications
