    Hi, what are you studying? I didn't know there was a Facebook group! What is it called? I'd like to join.

    EDIT: having checked your username, that was a silly question wasn't it?
    I'm not so sure; if he's "trying to encourage conversation", is he really a mathmo?

    What do you mean? Sorry, I'm probably being thick here. Are you on a Facebook group with him?

    He's actually a NatSci if I remember correctly.

    He's called "JoschTheMathmo", but says he is "the guy trying to encourage conversation"

    If the conversation is about anything other than mathematics, surely he cannot be a mathmo?

    A day has passed and I am finally over the failure I think.

    I am really happy that most of you appeared to be succesful and to those that weren't, I am sorry and hope you enjoy your time at your insurance.

    It was nice being a member of this thread and wish you all the best

    Oh, I thought he meant he had created a group chat for all Pembrokers, regardless of their subject. My bad

    I don't think we ever talked, but I'm very sorry that it didn't work out as you had hoped but glad that you are starting to feel better :hugs: you seem so lovely and kind.

    I hope you have a fantastic time, wherever it is that you are going and wish you all the very best of luck!

    Thank you.

    Was a bit awkward this morning because i had a bunch of people asking to join the bio natsci fb group I created. I left someone else in charge 🙄.

    Everyone has been great really.

    It's nice I wasn't dismissed. It's so easy for people to say that it doesn't matter where you go - Cam or Lonmet. So it was relieving that people recognised my dissapointment as valid.

    I guess while the majority of my year was spent working and not studying when I got my time off and medication I really thought I'd do well. I worked hard and thought I'd meet the offer. Unlike the original attempt where I knew there was no chance.

    But anyway I have provisionally decided upon imp, brum, notts, kcl and surrey. We shall see how i get on 🙂. Thanks again.

    That's the thing, I was so far off an A* it's really disheartening. I got 94 UMS in unit 4, 87 UMS in unit 5 but 60/60 in the coursework (lol). In total 29 UMS off in a subject that I was so sure was one of my A*s It's made me think that I am a crap physicist and not really worthy of my place tbh.
    *BTW I got 96% UMS at AS Level so I really don't know what happened
    Now I'm really starting to relate. I got 95% at AS and missed the A* by 22 marks because of Unit 5 - a paper I thought I'd get the A* in.

    I unexpectedly got an A* in Chemistry which I wasn't expecting at all, given that I literally cried after one chem exam (and got full UMS in that one...)

    The silver lining is that this will motivate you to ace all your first year physics modules. :lol:

    Congratulations and good luck!!

    It's just Pembroke offer holders, don't worry i have moments of relapse quite often . I'm going to be doing natsci! I see results day went well eh?
    I'll have a look for it, is it a messenger group chat? Or is it a Facebook group?

    Edit: Just requested to join a Facebook group called 'Pembroke Cambridge 2016 Offer Holders' which has 141 members. Is that the right one?

    Yup that's true XD I unexpectedly got an A* in Further Maths (literally, just about scraped it) thanks to a good 100 UMS in M2 and despite hating the FP2 exam immensely!

    Good luck to you too!
