    Hey. Haha. Anyone know when we hear about accommodation, is it after the A level results come out? I really want to know what we need to take with us.

    thinking rationally about it I'm pretty sure I'm going to get A*A*AAAb (though maybe won't get one of those A*s), which will get me in. It's just the inevitable disappointment that they aren't perfect results ffs
    Dude even if they're not perfect you're probs going to Oxford anyway D: x

    Depends on the College.. My college has just sent out all pre-departure information including University and College contracts to sign and return! It is starting to feel real!!! :daydreaming:

    Ah I wish all the best to those waiting for results. I vaguely remember driving home from my holiday to pick mine up, because for some reason I couldn't get them on the college internet.

    Now I think on it, I believe I had chocolate cake on the way back. Whatever happens eat some cake :-)

    I'm Scotch too - Western Isles. Where you from?

    I haven't heard anything about accomadation either, so I assume it'll be after Thursday. Though I haven't actually heard anything at all from Oxford since getting my results.

    Hi
    My letter from Worcester said that accommodation would be allocated and details sent after results day.
    (It being a little different for me I didn't read that section until just now).

    The Jersey Shore and everything else you've ever seen or heard is an incredibly inaccurate reflection of what New Jersey is actually like. The reality is much less horrific, trust me.
    Where are you from?

    Also, there's a facebook group for American freshers; you should join!

    Now for the big question: do we add to our Facebook education section our college, or the university?
