:woo: We can be sitting there, 80 years old, studying in the Bod!
YAY~

See this is why ChCh's library and I can never be together...

St John's library isn't 24 hours either but I think it goes to midnight or something.

I'll just hide under a table and sleep there at night or something

:rolleyes: A 24-hour library = starting essays at 3am for that morning

Ahahah, you really are rather in love! Although I agree, i love the fact that you can get any book at all, it's just amaaaazing! I'll be asking to look at lots of random old French literary texts

Haha you do seem to like staying up, given that it's 1 AM for you right now!

Yeah, my physics teacher told me he would always study in the arts/something-or-other library instead of the science library, as he would get distracted and start reading random texts off the shelf instead of revising. :lol: Sounds like something I would do...

and oh yeah same, but whether it be science or arts i'll still be distracted, i love it all!

Ah wow. O_o When do you wake up on non-school nights then? xD

Hehe yeah... maybe being in a library with wonderfully old books all the time isn't such a good idea... then again, better to be distracted while learning/reading something awesome than by... the... in...ternet... *COUGH* :facepalm:

I should be revising for chem right now ):

And tut tut, get going! I've finished Year 12, Summer Hols now Mwahahha

Ahhh...first day of the school holidays today, and I'm off to Normandy on Friday
Gonna pick up as many french magazines/newspapers as I can
Hope we can go see the Bayeaux Tapestry, I want to see the little mystery panels
Sadly looking at the Normandy forecast for the next week it looks like a lot of rain and 11 degrees at night...ah well, I guess that's not too bad, and I wasn't exactly expecting amazing weather...it just means I'll look a bit weird in my summer dress and a rain mac!
To any other TSR-ers going on holiday/already on holiday I hope you have a fab time!

also, somehow gonna have to fit in all my summer reading for French, Spanish and English whilst also revising my grammar religiously...sigh. I guess you guys are all doing Oxford prep this summer too, good luck with it! And may we all be successful this coming Autumn term <3

Oooh have an amazing time! And yes, French magazines/papers! Are they as pricey abroad as here (after conversion) because whenever i buy LeMonde or LeFigaro it's always £1.70 :| But yay French, and chut, grammar's fun

Amuse-toi, meme s'il pleut :lol: et bonne chance pour toi-meme aussi!

you should have chosen physics whenever you get bored there you can just ask an off topic question about time travel or what not and have a half hour discussion instead.

As for the entertaining...putting this one off the internet because a.) I agree with Manic fuzz science jokes are a laugh (?!?) and b.) I didn't get it

Q: What is the chemical symbol for diarrhea?
A: (CO(NH2)2)2

Exactly... In chem we hardly have any interesting discussion... I tried initiating something about quarks the first day but it didn't go anywhere. I love discussion.

I don't get the joke... D:

Same here. Which is why I was so pleased when I discovered there was more to science than biology.

Here's the explanation from the website: Urea is the molecule CO(NH2)2. The prefix "di" stands for two. Hilarious isn't it?

Hey,
For maths, shortlisting for interview is done entirely on MAT scores. They just take the best 60% of scores, and don't look at the rest of your application until after/around the interviews. Don't know how it would affect you getting a place, though. If you do really really well in everything else it may not matter. Why don't you contact the maths admissions people (address is on the website) and ask whether you still have a chance?
Do you have a source for this?

Ooh guess what Eduardo, I've met someone (the half-German, half-Italian Giuseppe) who's applying for exactly the same as you: same course, same college, and all the same other choices like Warwick and LSE! I actually thought you may have been the same person for a split second before I realised how stupid I was being :rolleyes: bet you'll see him at interview, how odd.

For anyone interested in the Eurozone, I found this really cool

I might pop on a bit later and update those who care about the EU thing...and my trip to Oxford!
