    So Imperial College came to my school yesterday. They said they really love IB students but then we asked why the offers were so high... They said something like, those that can make it do really well - 'people that get 7s in HL Chemistry for example, just walk through the course' they said... I was thinking 'walk through'?! One of the best universities in the world and some people can 'walk through' it? :lol:
    Imperial is just bleurgh.

    They'll work you anyway, so no excuse not to walk through.

    I don't know why I have such hate for it...

    Maybe their courses aren't as good as they think :mmm:

    I'm actually warming to the idea of any of my universities. Like to think that my worst choice is still top 10 in UK for Chemistry, is pretty damn good to have.

    Can anyone think of any arguments to why Public health can be considered a strand of medicine.

    No problem! I also recommend the Naked Scientists and insidescience.

    Trying to explain to my parents that if I go to Bath, it's still pretty damn good :lol:

    They came top 3 in UK this year for Chemical Engineering. That person from Imperial said they were impressed because Bath has gone really far

    My friend and I were having an argument about whether how 'tripos' is pronounced. How is it pronounced?

    Are you two going to believe me without even asking me why it's pronounced that way? :lol:

    It's partly to do with its etymology.

    It does, actually tripus in Latin means tripod, and the stools graduates used to sit on were the origin I think.

    Yeah, I've just Wiktionaried it but got distracted comparing the IPA for different dialects of English.
