    We're taking over to confuse you all with our accents and strange ways!

    And to binge drink, make babies and spread our northern poverty according to bbc3 :P
    You'd have a job confusing me, I'm from Sunderland.

    Good ol' geordie-mackem rivalry, I don't even like football or the shipbuilding that supposedly started it, though my dad refused to have anything red in the house for a few years...

    I'd refuse to have anything black or white, but that'd be a right trial.

    There's nothing wrong with showing your true colours y'know! I'm sure your father will love you regardless!

    I don't know why I still post in this thread, I'm fairly certain I've missed my offer marginally...Or spectacularly, but when I think about it I'm fairly certain it's only marginal. Law at Queen's college though, I didn't realise how much I wanted to go until I realised I don't think it'll happen. :mad: Silly me!

    Northampton. I look forward to having to explain to people that no, it's not just north of Southampton :rolleyes:
    (Original post by micky022)
    Wait, it isn't?
    Of course it isn't, silly. It's just north of Hampton, which is just north of Southhampton. Typical Oxford student, no common sense...

    Oh, and I'm from London, though I'm spending the summer in Berlin away from this rioting malarkey.

    I know the feeling, im the same!

    As results day draws nearer I just feel more and more sick It would have been fine if it wasn't for that last maths exam...

    I've taken to reading positive things about my insurance uni (sheffield) so I convince myself I really want to go there instead of Oxford...would be easier if Oxford wasn't so ridiculously cheap in comparison

    Hi, I'm not an offer holder, I was wondering anyone with an offer for PPE, what they were reading about around their interview and whether they're reading anything intersting now?

    Yeah I remember that exam too. I'd already given up on Maths by that point for plenty of reasons, luckily I didn't need Maths but C4 was tricky. To the point where I don't think I full answered more than four questions.

    My insurance is in London, so financially there's not a lot I can do to take consolation there! Just have to see what happens on results day and deal with it then. Not getting too much sleep at the moment though.

    I got them with my fresher's pack after results, some colleges ask you to choose earlier but it's not unusual to not have heard anything yet. Details of the full range of modules are here if it helps. Catz gave me pretty much free reign
    Ahh ok, thanks. I'm not sure how much free choice I will have...I didn't originally apply to the college who gave me an offer, so I don't know as much about it as I probably should have. I haven't had a reading list or anything yet ( except an accommodation choosing thing which I sent back in April), so I imagine I will just get everything after results day.
    Although this is all purely hypothetical, as I'm pretty sure I've missed my offer.
    Which reminds me, I need to look up the phone number for the college admissions officer, ready for some results day begging
