    Yeah. Aw man. I just want them now so that it's over with The last 2nd year life sciences exam was the 16th so I'm thinking their meeting might be next week (hoping), so might be on track for the 30th May again :P I do chemistry too and the last exam for that was nearly 2 weeks ago. I just want the results basically
    Won't be long now I'm pretty sure our whole year had all theirs back before June last year! It's hard to relax when you don't know

    We've found out the examiners' meeting is the 3rd of June and they should be out the 4th. At least we know when we should be getting them now

    Awesome! That's still about a week later than last year right enough. Still it's good to know when you're getting them our markers meeting was the 13th may and we were told we'd get them on the 16th. But it was the 17th, lies!

    Hey Chenpan,

    Just for info - there is a great express bus service from the airport doors to the city centre. It takes about 25 mins (the same as a taxi) and costs around £6 (no tip required!)

    That would be nice.. Wish you had done that earlier or any time within the week.. so I could use to plan

    Also, I was searching the forum for tips, and found your post regarding that in a thread.



    I will be using the taxi from Airport to Buchanan View, and searched online for pre-booking, I was wondering how much Should I be paying him as tip? The cost of journey is £26. Cause in my country we often pay 10% or a fixed denomination of 20 or 50. But that's an acceptable amount there.. If i do the same here, it would mean a lot when you look at the conversion. So an idea on the percentage or just a nominal amount for the £26 would be very helpful.

    Also which one should I pick for the drop of point among the following to get to Buchanan View?

    Can someone tell me a bit more about the unions at Glasgow? Like what are the differences - in atmosphere/beliefs etc? Also, what kind of role they play in the university and what difference they make to my time at uni... I don't really understand their use?

    Thank you!

    Hi Summerfruit,

    Historically one was a male union and one a female - but that was long ago. Now there is no essential difference but rather a choice for our students. Both have catering and bars and entertainment. The GUU hold debates and the QMU have live gigs. I would try both and see which you prefer.

    Gloriously diplomatic.

    The GU is for ****ers, the QM is for freaks.

    Job done.

    The GUU has a more 'old Glasgow' feel - there's like... A real fire, & it smells like a lovely old building, with big sweepy staircases etc. The beer bar is theoretically a nice place to be - like a studenty version of what looks a bit like an old man pub - but personally I find it a bit uncomfortable when it gets full because it is kind of full of loutish drinking gamers shouting 'DOWN IT DOWN IT DOWN IT CHUUUUUUG' or whatever, which is distracting. Also if there's any kind of major sport on TV, you have no chance of having a conversation in the beer bar. There's a Subway though - major bonus. Also there's like a canteeny style food place too but I've never eaten there so can't say what it's like.

    I've spent more time in the QMU partly because it's considerably nearer the buildings where the majority of my classes have been. The building itself is hideous, but that's not really the point. I prefer the bars there - the jukeboxes are considerably better & I like the atmosphere better. It has Lacuna & Food Factory, both of which I can recommend for lunch. I think it feels more kind of modern 'studenty' & definitely far less laddish - the pool tables are in a brighter space & although there's somewhere to watch sport, there's not the thing of people shouting & screaming & chanting at it, so that's good...

    I've not spent enough time in either of their "nightclub spaces" to have an opinion.

    In terms of beliefs, they won't admit to having any fundamental difference, but the GUU does have a bit of the old 'booo, women' thing. The QMU proves itself to be more inclusive I guess, it has a gender neutral toilet on the top floor & it's just less of a laddish environment.

    Basically, try out both & see what you like to do where I prefer the QM personally, although I do like the GUU for some things.
