    Does anyone here like filling out forms?:lol:

    I can't wait till I have to fill in al my UCAS applications or whatever :ahee:
    I like filling in forms! I sent off my UCAS application two days after the 15th October, and I got all 5 conditional replies in November and replied to them too. I was the first person in my college to do this, so of course I was all happy. But applying for Student Finance was LONG! Especially when you have to knee calling them up and what not -.-"

    Clear to another university. I don't particularly like my college anymore and its too late to apply to another college and I have my heart set out on going to uni this year. I'm mentally prepared for uni. I'm not going throught UCAS and student finance and personal statements again -.-"

    How much summer homework did you get? I have to complete a whole unit and it sucks!

    I have more than a unit to complete lol. I have to read and make notes from three very long handouts on the Russian Revolution for coursework, then I have to re-read two texts (The Great Gatsby and Antony and Cleopatra) and make notes on them. Then I have to finish a sketchbook for design and technology -_- I'm not even half way yet, I'm so lazy. I hate how fast this holiday has gone - I'm so not going to finish on time.

    ah i hope i do better,but just a simple question - will experience and the personal statement count if you miss entry req.?
    In theory yes. 2 people with a close 1 space available then that could be the basis. I figure they are running on a tight schedule having received the results on sunday and needing to have everything finalised they'll just pick people with near misses in grades. After all they have already considered your PS and work to make you and the others their offers.

    My friends said it was okay, but if they ask for evidence, expect the whole thing to be long and tiring and stressful

    Well, that's a reason for you to apply to Cambridge then - you'd love filling in the SAQ... I lost my mind doing that thing.

    Pretty close to grade boundaries now, I guess.
    I think i'm getting more nervous waiting for the grade boundaries than the results themselves haha :P

    I hate how I'm the only one on this forum who does History with AQA lol Well my sixth form says that we need at least a grade D to continue at A2, which I'm certain that's the grade I will attain at least. Failing that, I will probably go to another collge and retake my AS year. Right now I am considering taking a gap year since I have no experience in anything, and my personal statement was a joke. How about you?

    Eh, I totally know the feeling.
    It's 5:20am.. and I'm still awake.

    Mind me asking what exam board your R.S is?
    Aha oh dear, I think I finally managed to fall asleep by ten past five, so I got a fair chunk of sleep. And yeah sure, I don't mind - we're on the AQA board. How about you?

    Oh, I thought you posted them as a joke, people have been doing that. Apologies.
    They are the UMS boundaries, and are the same every year. Hence the "November 2012" etc.
