Yes I got a C in chemistry overall, I studied the night before each exam tbh. My chances of getting into Leeds are pretty slim, but if I work hard (and effectively) from now to June, I don't see why my grade can't improve. I chemistry teachers were so awful, I'm getting a tutor to help me out a month before my first exam. I'm doing AQA.

It's great you got an A, how'd you do it?
well as long as you're motivated and driven you really will be able to do it. I made sure i sort of learn each individual system/reaction/test/graphs. Practicing while i went along. It's a lot more than a memory job too cos they like throwing odd cases at you. Not sure how AQA works, but going back to check you can do it as quite important, then there's endless past papers, seriously aim for full marks don't be happy with 80% cos my first mock i got that, got happy and got a C in the exam. Not sure how to advice on chemistry but do every paper you can get. They're all related too. Learn all the calculations as well

I know it really looks amazing, but this girl is applying there who i don't really get on with and knowing my look we'll be in the same flat that would be a nightmare!!

Yeah i have wrote loads of directions on my ipod touch so i know which buses to get and where to! I hope the bus driver will tell me where to get off if i ask him!? You think he will?
oh, that would be piss take tbh, not what you need in uni when you wanna have fun. I've got your back

Yea great idea, most of them will but there's always the inevitable ****. Go to the parkinson building on campus and they'll be able to help you out. The worst case, you'll miss your stop and get another one back. I wouldn't be too worried

:laugh: we all do it, some more than others :rolleyes: you should try applying for medicine twice! Getting in is harder than the course! guessing that's you in your picture . I'll be wearing checkerboard vans...probably. And I've gone from being alone to 3/4 others my friend in Leeds said he'll take me round. About 1-6,

Haha well it may take me about 2 hours to find it, I'm panicking but I know I'll be fine.. I hope :P
Oxley is gorgeous but doesn't seem practical! Clarence does considering it has a tesco express nearby and things: D

Yeah I need to see it but I think I'm going to love it anyway, you'll have to let me no what you think of it are you going to apply for accom when you back home based on what you saw? I think I am!

You will be :yep:

I didn't even realise it had a tesco . They both look pretty good but clarence is all undergrad, and has a bar with a gym which sealed the deal for me. I've not gotten my offer yet, but i should be able to get in leeds, so i'll apply as soon as i have an offer for something, got told i'd hear in a week and today's a week from when i applied so early next week hopefully. Yer pretty much

I don't know Why I'm selling it :facepalm:
check the site and look under the directions, or go to the campus first and get a day pass and i reckon you'll be alright. Get a ****load of printouts with directions :teehee:
Dude..you're killing the plan. I think I might have to do this scaring off thing alone if you're not careful

S'alright, I suppose...we ARE going to need flatmates after all...just make sure we stock up on good TSR'ians...then we could create a sort of hub or base from which we could wreak HAVOC

Yeah, this thread may have hyped-up expectations just a little ... but that's what the younger generations do! We get really excited for something so inane and carry on a fantasy that surpasses all others...like the fantasy that Father Christmas is the one who brings presents on Christmas Eve

or the fact that this is my 100th post and it actually symbolises a momentous event!

We all know in reality that it's just another s*** post.

Trying to decide between Tannery or leodis now.....Tannery is closer to the dental school ( I'm doing dentistry )
but leodis is bigger.
Tannery is all Ug
Leodis is UG, PG, Internationals....
Which one would be better for a dental student?

Driving up to Leeds now, three hours of headphones in desparately trying to ignore my parents constantly asking questions about the accommodation. :| Why is no-one talking about Bodington anymore?!
