    Lucky!
    When my teacher said that he'll probably be teaching S2 and other things I'm not doing, I joked "well I guess I'm not coming to lessons anymore".

    He was like "the **** you aren't Oscar; you'll sit in a corner by yourself"

    Not specifically S2 (he doesn't know what modules he'll teach yet since everyone wants to do different ones), I just don't get to skip lessons just because what's being taught is different to what I'm learning

    hey I do maths, geography and art, hoping to do geography at uni next September.
    Maths and Geography? They sound extremely hard! I hope my AS results will allow me to gain offers quickly although my UCAS statement is a long and slow process

    The seventh draft of my personal statement is under 4000 characters! I'm so happy - especially since my third draft was over 8000 characters.

    Now I have to really improve it because my college is making me have my application ready by Tuesday.

    Almost done with my personal statement! I'm on the line limit but I need a closing paragraph, so hopefully I can remove some crap here or there.

    I won't put in my application until I've visited Exeter though, so I've still got over a month to go.

    Back from Edinburgh's open day (nine hour overnight coach journey complete with screaming children and elderly woman snoring on your shoulder = not recommended) and it was ****ing brilliant I haven't slept in more than 24 hours so I was planning to hibernate for the rest of the day but I'm not even tired (due to copious amounts of junk food no doubt. Also my friend and I got served eyyyyy) so I'm determined to finish my damn PS

    My Personal statement has been sent off to another pair of eyes! In College we have a bunch of people who specialise in personal statements who look over them all before they are sent off and whatnot, so, woo ^-^

    What did you do?
    Sorry for the late reply, I fell asleep (So much for 'not tired'.)

    I flew out there yesterday morning, my first trip on a plane in seven years. I used to absolutely hate flying but this was really fun We got there at around midday and I went on a coach to see their Easter Bush campus (the vet school) which was beautifullllll It's so high tech and they have a really good exotics unit (in veterinary terms 'exotics' are essentially anything that's not a cat, dog, horse or farm animal. I have a big interest in reptiles, birds and small fluffy creatures so that's a huge bonus). When I came back to the main campus I went to a couple of talks in the lecture halls and went to a few stalls. After looking round the accommodation my friend and I got on random buses and just wandered around the city for a bit Had the biggest pizza ever then ate an obscene amount of junk food Tried Irn-Bru for the first time (seemed appropriate) and got some Scotch because 1. Scotland and 2. I am Barney Stinson (I actually liked it too ). Coach home was delayed by an hour and there was a screaming baby so I got barely any sleep but I'm so glad I went now Definitely going to apply there.

    Nice; short flights are always great Good luck applying.

    University labs are always awesome to visit What's Irn-Bru like? I recall trying it once but I don't remember the taste.

    Were the talks taster lectures or talks on application/university admin sort of stuff?
