    Yes, you ARE lucky doing politics as an A level because in Italy we just do a lot of (bad taught) history, so I could say my interests are the 'opposite' of yours.. I wanna know the consequences of a war, and possibly avoid it! LOL do you know if they really do those mock UN security council meetings? I was silly enough at the open day I didn't pose such a question LOL and thought I would join UKCMUN right during freshers

    My main career goal is not being a diplomat.. I went to an event in my town where some members of the italian Foreign Office explained the job.. i just thought it was too 'easy'.
    Let's say I would like to end up in the UN DPA/security council and make you sign that resolution ahah.
    Have you ever heard of CSIS or Ploughshares Fund? I would also like to make some work experience there
    I do recall someone saying something about a mock UN during PollIR open day :P
    And no, never heard of those institutions lol I'm assuming some sort of supranational IGO that drains the economy and sovereignty of the nation state! :P

    I remember reading on here about people in the maths department being let in with low grades...couldn't point you to exactly where I read it though!
    I not saying you're wrong, but this is what I know as fact. As someone who applied to do maths starting this autumn, the grades asked for are quite high. I also know of someone that didn't get in last year because they didn't get an A in maths.

    I'd say it's impossible to second guess how a university will treat you if you don't get the grades asked for. All you can expect is that if many people don't get the grades asked for the university will be lenient.

    I think the case I heard of was they got the A in maths, but missed one of their others by a grade. To be honest (as someone going into their mathematics department) then I can see why they wouldn't be lenient with someone who didn't get an A in that subject, but might be more lenient if they missed out on one of their others.

    What are the grades you've been asked for, if you don't mind me asking?

    I was asked for AB in Maths and F.Maths plus B for AS English. However, I've firmed Lancaster who required less and I think to be a better option for maths.

    What do you make of Darwin college accommodation? By the raving reviews I have read it does not hold a candle up to Parkwood, maybe I have made a mistake in putting down Darwin as my first choice... :/
    Darwin isn't bad I suppose, still the best place to live on campus is Tyler Court. Block A has the smallest rooms but the best communal atmosphere (everyone knows everyone). B and C are spacious but expensive.

    If you want my advice, don't live in Park Wood it's a scary housing estate where all the houses look the same and you have to walk to campus every morning (which takes a good 10-15 minutes).

    Don't live in parkwood because it is a scary housing estate? It's only other students that live in them lol.

    I live in Tyler C

    Good points:
    En suite
    Big rooms
    Huge kitchens
    Good location for walking into town

    Are you sure Keynes is cheaper? It was the same last year. That's strange if so, seeing as Keynes is new. (Assuming you're talking about the new Keynes extension)

    Also you might not even get your first choice anyway. I applied on the first day and got my second choice and one of my flatmates got her third choice despite applying on the first day.

    Hmm I thought it was but I must check again, you're probably right!
    Thank you that does sound good, hope the people are lively and nice too. Appreciate the comment back
