    Has anyone heard of any events going on in freshers that involve going out?

    At the moment my freshers week consists of:

    Monday - Pre-course on maths.
    Tuesday - Pre-course on maths.
    Wednesday - ???
    Thursday - ???
    Friday - Lab induction.

    I know I'll be having a college library and Bodelian induction at some point, as well as the freshers fair in there I'm really looking forward to it but are there any big music/clubbing nights going on?

    Who's organizing the pre-course for maths? Is that the University College course?

    hi all,
    I probably shouldn't technically post in here but I was referred here and it's kind of a last resort, as I need an answer about this question by tomorrow. Basically, the question is do Oxford offers include or exclude completed A-levels? I completed the maths a2 in year 12 as our school do further maths one after the other rather than both the ASs then the A2s, so would my theoretical offer be A*A*A (A*s specified in maths + f maths) meaning I only need A*A this year or would they then give me A*AA (A* specified f maths) for this year? As if it's the latter I wouldn't be able to drop French.
    Thanks for your help.

    Well Hugh's seem to have 3 club nights (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday: Traffic Light, Full Moon, Foam) a pyjama party and other things like treasure hunts, sports day vs St Anne's and a Freshtival that are more daytime events. Oh, we have a bop too and we had to vote on the theme.

    I honestly don't know. Hertford asked all freshers to come down on Tuesday 4th Oct but I recieved an email saying that all the Hertford physics freshers should come down on the sunday for a "Pre-session maths course" on the monday and tuesday :yep:

    As far as I know completed A levels are included in offers, they don't just ignore them, but you might want to check with the department. It might be a good idea to keep your extra A-level for now, you can always drop it later if it turns out to not be relevant?

    true i could drop it later but i have so much going on this term that the extra 4 free periods would be invaluable in terms of completing some outside reading, revising for the aptitude test and prepping for the interview. also i have 3 essays due which i havent done haha

    Ooooh at least you get to vote on the theme, I don't know what the theme is for mine yet so I'm going to have to throw together a fancy dress outfit at the last minute :cool: although everyone will be in the same boat so we'll all be as bad as each other

    This exactly! We'll all be running up to Primark to see if we can nab anything cheap to throw together as a costume. I wish they'd give us more info on it!

    The choices for the Hugh's one were back to school or dress as your subject if that helps? I imagine the bops will have rather similar themes across the university . . . Then again I don't know
