    Hi

    GCSE: 9A* 1A
    AS: 4A (Eng Lit, French, History, Latin)
    A2 predictions: 3A*
    Course: Classics
    Why: Good course, love the city and have family there, really liked the department on open day
    Choices: Oxford, Durham, Liverpool, Newcastle, Leeds

    Got an email from Liverpool to say they'd received my application this morning, now anxious to hear from the others!
    :eek: OOO...you should get unconditional from all of them

    I went through the whole thread and there was a single Economics applicant, which seemed pretty confused herself. I am really worried that the people who applied for the same course as me are mostly local and I might not fit in apparently they only have around 700 EU (I fit in that category) out of more than 10000 undergraduates.. Do you guys think I will be able to fit in if I end up choosing Liverpool? I am a socialite but I am most definetely applying for on campus accommodation and from what I've heard the off campus is where the magic happens
    Edit: I didn't mean for the last part to sound like that

    Helloo dont worry about it, youll be fine! there will be plenty of people who wont even know about this site so you never know who will be on your course youll still get along with everyone in yr classes and in your accommodation too its up to you as to whether you want to live on campus or off - they both have their pros and cons xx

    I'm personally applying for the new vine court and prospect point because I prefer the interior.
    Vine Court looks lush! But think i'm gunna opt off campus - and re-thinking to going catered (crap at cooking doesn't even begin to describe how bad I am!!)..

    Carnatic halls (from the website) looks quite prison-like, but decent, dale hall .. no shower (whaaaa??)..

    then again the uni in my home-town have people sharing rooms, so don't think I can complain!!

    I'm gunna be studying Music, haven't seen a music applicant either.. :eek:

    Mum's loving the fact that everyone here seems to be doing something really academic (if that's the right word..probably not).. Medicine, History, Engineering, Diagnostic Radiography (tbh I don't know what that even means.. someone explain plzz).

    "You're going to have to start reading newspapers.. or watch the news, people tend to think music students are weird" - thanks mum

    Oh, and congrats to everyone on their offers!!, i'm lucky enough to already have my results.. remembering back to the stress of exams .. GOOD LUCK EVEYONE

    sorry about the extra long post

    It's ok, I don't mind reading long posts, TSR has become my most visited website i think, trying to meet people as I am going all by myself to uni ..
    I have never really considered catered accommodation, eating at certain hours everyday is definitely not something i use to do (bad habit, i know). I only know how to cook basic stuff, I was hoping I could find a nice place with decent food around campus to have lunch there at least..
    I am so not ready to be living on my own, oh Lord

    haaha, nor me, i don't even know how to turn on the washing machine .. oh crap!.. I eat at really random times usualy but I'm guessing i'll get used to eating at a certain time .. and as for my cooking skills ... I know how to boil a kettle .. so I can make pot noodle, pasta (not rice, tried that once.. fail) and a decent cup of coffee hahaha :cool: so I think catered is my best option for first year ..

    getting excited now! .. perfecting my scouse accent (jokes, jokes ..)

    Where are you from? I bet it is going to take me a while to get used to the accent. Although I have been taught British English in school, movies, songs etc. have managed to somehow trump that, so my accent is so terribly American

    hahaha! class! - don't worry, I don't really understand the scouse accent - but I'm from west wales, only about a 4 hour drive to liverpool, but I still have a heavy welsh accent (truly the most awful accent ever) .. so I doubt any of them will understand me either! :cool:

    Heyy from the accommodation visit day i went to.. carnatic does look like prisons in real life hahah :eek: i only visited the sailsbury (however its spelt) hall.. it was alright, the bedrooms were decent sizes and they had showers haha the dinnerhall looks good as well for if youre going to be going for the catered option! Personally i think i'm gonna go for derby&rathbone i loved the grounds it was in and the buildings were nice!

    I dont think music students are weird haha! :^_^: the course you do is the course you want to do and will enjoy! diagnostic radiography according to 'prospects.ac.uk' says "Diagnostic radiographers use x-rays, ultrasound and other forms of imaging technology to examine patients. They are responsible for interpreting the images and diagnosing illnesses and injuries." haha :proud:

    I'm so glad i also have my results too :') hated the wait! x

    Least English is your native language! Blah I should be more confident, I will get used to the British accent in no time! It's English, not Chinese
