    A "thank you" used to be a cupcake from Fitzbillies. I wonder if it's reopened yet... :moon:
    I guess we go for the sweet treats closest to our college!

      I've never been to Mr Simms. I finished my honey nut cornflakes at the end of term and ate the bits in the bottom of the bag, which gave rise to cravings for peanut brittle. :sogood: I meant to stock up before I left Cambridge but I didn't. :sad:

      The trouble is, if I ever set foot in Mr Simms again, I will never ever leave...

      Hi - do you know if the reduction is standard for all colleges (specifically Downing). Would make quite a difference!
      Definitely not my sister has just finished her first year at Downing and no reduction at all Lovely ensuite though!

        Depending on how results go on next Thursday, either A) ECSTATIC ; OR
        B) Slightly Suicidal with the only consoling factor being that if I do end up going to Manchester, at least I'll be saving a few thousand pounds a year...

        (PLEASE LET IT NOT BE OPTION B, GOD! PLEAAAASE.)
        I am in the same position as you, Cambridge 1st, Manchester 2nd. If it all goes wrong I don't know if I will want to go to Manchester though.
        Mind is just set on Cambridge and going somewhere else would completely mess with my head, knowing I had the chance to go and messed it up.

        Does anyone know what time admissions offices open at? I get my results at 7am, but I'm guessing nobody's going to be in an office at that time, so would I have to wait until a slightly more respectable time before I lose any dignity I have left and start begging...
        My school will only open at 10 am for the results. How can you get that so early? Or your school is so much better.

        Johnian offer holders - some advice about rooms:
        Spoiler:
        Show
        When it comes round to picking rooms, have a look at G staircase Cripps...it's been renovated really recently, with some ensuite rooms and nice kitchens. Little bit further away from the rest of college, but if you don't mind a slightly longer walk in exchange for a nicer room at the end of it...

        Just a little advice since G staircase hasn't been available to freshers for a few years!

        Our school opens at 9am but the exam board publishes them online at 7am... can't say I'm looking forward to it though...

        Your school should have given you a pin code to use so you can log into the exam board's website service. Ours only gave us the code for 2 of my exams so I can't get into the other exam board :L

        They just publish them online, our school gave us the website address and a pin number before we left so we just log on and find out, which is definetly better than having to go to school and have a mental breakdown in front of a hundred + people, although its just the grades, so I won't find out the UMS marks until I go to school

        Maybe you could ring your college? Depends if they're open obviously ! They really should have given them out if they had them though

        I have no idea which exams boards put them online and which ones don't. I'm on CCEA, but depending on which board you are they might not even be online. Check your exam boards website because it should say whether or not they put them up... If not you can always check UCAS track, it might be up before 9

        I think only some exam boards eg edexcel do this.

        I have to wait

        It really kills me that our college gets our results on Sunday, schools get them on Wednesday.. and we have to wait until Thursday
        I really dislike not being kept in the loop, considering I'm pretty heavily involved in all this...

        Tell me about it. Our school didn't prepare us at all for what to do I had to google everything! I heard too that last year they phoned up those that had 3A's the night before results day and told them to come in the next day (photo op...) but didn't say why so people were worrying they had to repeat the year or something!! Typical :L
