    lolol, I'm guessing it's because it's just reading articles and answering questions about them for the most part?
    It's a variety of 'pick the best answer' questions. And an essay, unless the formula's changed (now I'm starting to date myself).

    Not me, but I'm curious as to how you managed going to 5 interviews! I went to one, which was in itself a difficult endeavor. Did you fly over individually for each one?

    I could only apply for 4 universities as that was the maximum # of medical schools I could apply to. I ended up going to 3 of them - 2 on my visit, and the 3rd interview was held in Canada (which was very convenient - 2000 dollars were saved that very day ). I ended up getting an offer from my first choice, Southampton, before I went to my last intervew - so I declined the interview offer.

    It's great you're heading to Bristol - it is a fantastic university from what I've heard from a friend of mine who goes there. Hope you have a great time as well

    Which part of Canada are you from? I'm from the Greater Toronto Area (but let's just say I'm from Toronto for simplicity sake )

    Ah, I see! Sorry, I meant 4 but I'm so used to thinking of "5 choices" that I forgot, haha. I'm from the GTA too. Where are you specifically?

    Hi,

    I think this sub-forum here is where you'll find more people who are interested in studying in Canada.

    This thread has more Canadians who are studying or will be studying in the UK.

    Seen better days. Just realising how better candy from the UK actually is. I must of spent 5 minutes trying to pick the right candy at a store the other day since all the candy here tastes like nothing.

    Haribo... :drool: granted it's a German sweet but it's much more abundant in British stores than Canadian ones... however, I have found Haribo at Shoppers Drug Mart, and have subsequently bought and eaten three bags in two weeks...

    Was at a Chinese restaurant today.

    Overheard a girl on a different table saying she's going to the UK to study Law in October. Didn't hear which uni though but thought about how much effort she must of made with the UCAS and what not.
