So is oxford the only uni you're applying to? Or are you applying to others as well just to see where you stand?

Same, i can't be doing with having to arrange living-out, i'd much rather stay in the college the whole time i'm there!

And just English fluently i didn't take any language, i did spanish til year 9, and am now only Lower Intermediate according to Oxford's placement tests, but i may improve my spanish over the summer although i have been learning french since christmas and am now at Higher Intermediate standard - well, i can quite easily talk to the as-level students and sometimes help correct their work

Do you study anything else other than German and Spanish? I'd looove to study Russian but i'm so unfocused, i have like resources on learning 15 different languages on my laptop :rolleyes:
No, I used to do Latin, and I started teaching myself French but have so little time...

You'll probably spend a lot of time in the city. Think about what it's like with a campus uni
Haha, I like the fact it sounds like I have an offer Yeah that's a good point - it's no different to really nice halls I suppose?

You're going to get reported like me if you write in German

Also, it takes less effort to write "your grammar" than "you're grammar". Ach. Even looking at that last one made me cringe.

From my sig:
UCAS:
Oxford University - Philosophy, Politics and Economics
University of Warwick - Philosophy, Politics and Economics
London School of Economics - Government and Economics
University of Edinburgh - Economics and Politics
Durham University - Philosophy, Politics and Economics
US:
Considering Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth, UC Berkeley, Vanderbilt, and Johns Hopkins.

I'll be looking into the US if and only if I don't get an offer from my top 3 UCAS choices though.

We have 3 out of 5 UCAS choices in common, we're in the same boat! But yes, I'm definitely a sadist/optimist/fool.

Did he reply?! :ninja: I hate talking to people without knowing their names! It just feels awkward. Unfortunately I forget these names a few hours later, but never mind that. *cough*
