    Haha! Same here. I hope I get along with whoever I'm put with in the flats, it would be much easier to make friends :L
    'Cause I'm Scottish, I don't know how attainable AAB is at A Level, but very good luck! Though I don't have the pressure of meeting conditions, just the thought of what I have to learn for advanced higher Biology is weighing heavily on my mind. tbh, I was incredibly shocked to get an unconditional, I didn't do that well last year, I don't think. But hey, I'm not complaining
    Aww, of course you can! As long as it's a small box. And I may or may not let you put a toothbrush next to the sink.

    I'm sure you will, I guess everyone is in the same situation as you. But then again, girls.. can be argumentative, lol. I dunno.

    Well, I'm not sure, I mean, (babbling) getting 1 A shouldn't be too bad, but that is with a whole lot of studying, and so 2 As may be too hard? I stared studying one of my subjects in Feb and I've still not finished the course -.- GRAH
    Is advanced biology hard? (I don't know how it compares to A levels).

    Annd.. well. Okay. It's kind of you to let me be a hobo in your room. Very kind actually. I can be a gremlin who just.. sits there.. watching nothing.. in a student room :L But if I can't put my toothbrush next to the sink, where CAN I put it?

    Yeah, worried about that too, if I'm put with a bunch of girls that end up not liking me or are really, really umm.. strong minded? :L Oh dear.

    At least you have started studying though. Just think of all the people who will be regretting the decision not to start revising when you did
    Hm, I think that A Levels are harder than Highers, but Advanced Highers are harder than A2's. At least, that's what I've been told! So yeah, I suppose AH Bio is quite hard, it's just the volume of things you have to remember for it. It's like the ultimate memory test. On top of that I took Higher Music and crashed Higher Physics, which isn't actually so bad..

    :zomg:You don't mean like the gremlins from 'Gremlins' do you? because then you definitely cannot stay. The fine for room damage would be extortionate umm, I don't know where else you could put the toothbrush.. I didn't really think it through

    Well, I suppose if the girls are strong minded, you'd have some in-depth debates.

    I don't think anyone would be jealous of starting studying from Feb. It's a complete time killer >.< Well, I've heard that advance highers are harder than A2s, but I guess that's not too surprising.

    :O You took a higher in music? Wow. What do you play? I only took music to my GCSE's in a after-school class :/

    I don't think I've ever seen 'Gremlins.' but Oh! I'd be a good gremlin.. if there are such things.
    I shall keep my toothbrush in a shoe.

    Very true! I suppose that would be a bonus... depending on the debate :L

    I play viola, primarily. I started with Violin but switched about 4 years ago. As a second instrument I played Recorder for Higher, because you're not allowed to have both violin and viola :mad: I've learned that recorder isn't easy :L
    I played Bass Guitar as a second instrument for standard grade, but never carried it on. What do you play?

    You should see it, it's a crazy wee story :L I'm sure you'd be an excellent gremlin! It would be pretty fun, wrecking things without a care in the world!
    You could somehow tie the toothbrush to the shoe with the laces and Voila! Your own portable toothbrush.

    I play the violin too! (And the piano and guitar). Why did you change to the viola? What grades have you done?

    Is the gremlin movie a scary one at all? (I'm not a massive fan of scary films, total scaredy cat).

    A portable toothbrush on a shoe? That'd be pretty sneaky and gross, don't you think? :P But you could always accompany me with a portable shoe toothbrush.

    Ohh! Really?
    Well, that gives me some piece of mind.
    I hope there will be some other lone wolves though. I don't fancy the idea of approaching a group of friends already :P
    Bah! I told you that and you wouldn't believe me! :L

    I'm still undecided if I'll make Strathclyde my firm or my insurance. I'll be visiting Heriot-Watt uni next week so I'll know for sure then. I really do like Strathclyde, but my parents are convinced that Heriot-Watt is the better uni.
    I'll also be totally friendless when I go to uni, btw. I'm from the Netherlands and I literally know no one that lives in Glasgow, or even in Scotland. I think there will be a lot of people that don't know anyone.

    MEng Mechanical Engineering. I'm not sure about Heriot-Watt, but I've only heard good things about the department at Strathclyde. You should make a thread about it (if you haven't already) and see if any current Chemistry students at either university can give you some advice.

    Yeah that's what I have been reading (hearing) as well. Honestly, I don't think I could even meet my conditions for Heriot-Watt, so I could just as well firm Strathclyde right away. In my heart, I prefer Strathclyde too, so my parents should just deal
