Fingers crossed. Maybe something good will come of it. I gave Oxford a thought, but then again, I am happy with my current arrangement.

The greatest incentive one could ever provide to young school boys, is showing them the castle where they can attend Uni, should they behave properly. Might work. Never happened to me though ...

Well there's the rub. I haven't yet made up my mind whether to apply to Cam' or Ox'! I'm born and bred in Oxford, you see, so in one sense I love the idea of branching out to Cambridge and discovering a whole new city, but on the other (OF COURSE) I can't betray my roots and elect to study in the enemy city!!! LOL. But yeah, I am really struggling w. the decision...
You should toss a coin. There's a
psychological theory that even if people think they're undecided, by the time the coin reachs the ground they find themselves hoping for a result.:cool: And let it be Ox.

£20?!
I swear here the library fines are something like 20-50p a day for adults, and 5p a day for children, or something ridiculous like that? :confused:

:lol: Ahah, ah our school doesn't even have a library anymore, just a stupid 'Learning Resource Centre' with barely any books ¬¬

we have a library which no one uses, with a librarian who thinks she's an actual member of staff

Don't know what Merton's library fines are but I had to pay £1.50 for returning a book a day late to the Magdalen library. ;_;

I'm wondering whether I should switch to Merton
Do, it's amazing!

(Original post by Hellz_Bellz!)
I thought PPE has a really limited amount of places, that's why i was so surprised to see so many prospective applicants on here!

Oooh Maths, I haven't met many prospective Maths students :3 Whereabouts is Merton? Never visited it.
I think it's actually one of the bigger subjects, but because it has so many applications it's still really competitive. Merton is situated on a quiet cobble street just off the high street, overlooking Christ Church meadow.

There was a big sign up in our library for the sixth year leavers about overdue books. One was 1,800 and something days overdue! And there were quite a lot over one thousand.


Oh, and
Happy Birthday Julie! :birthday::congrats::dancing2::dancing2::elefant::groovy:

My school's policy is that you cannot receive any results until all outstanding debts are paid. It's quite evil of them putting that in the results slip; I can imagine getting hyped up and seeing that note.

Just how anally retentive are TSR mods? I got an "alert" for writing two sentences in french (bad french to boot) and... (gasp) NOT PROVIDING A TRANSLATION.

Ah well, 'tis the interwebs, bull****'s home court as it were.

I can't see that you have any reason to apologize, it's hardly illicit activity (well it is to them, apparently).
