    Criminal TSR Minds

    I'm getting a crime procedural feel from you lot

    How about some Sheffield University ROBOT WARS degree
    More like criminal minds :yes: but we all know TSR is filled with serial killers :rofl:

    TBH I find crime and crime solving really interesting and something i seriously thought about as a career many times in the past.
    I also don't much like robot wars

    I know realistically looking at the grade boundaries won't help me to gauge where I'm at, because I do humanities - but I just want to see them already to compare against previous years and my mock. :erm:
    Impatiently waiting for midnight(ish). :ashamed:

    I've got some more fun courses

    For the linguaphiles (is that a word - I think I just proved I'm not one) Intercultural Communication with Business Management at UEA - literally professional/business translation :awesome:

    For the creative souls/theatre fans: creative writing or Drama and Literature at Essex (also home to THE best lift in a UK university: https://vimeo.com/61719019 )

    For the media whores (sorry that's a horrible term): TV and radio production at Salford - study TV/radio IN Media City...on the doorstep of the Beeb and ITV (and a bunch of media production companies).

    What you applied for/where? All the best of the luck in any case, I'm sure you've done well.
    I'm doing AS and A2. Hopefully I'll get enough on Thursday for Bristol but I feel physically sick when I think of results day :/

    That lift is amazing!!! I'd be so tempted to ride under the ground floor and see what happened though

    I also hate A levels because of the same reasons (especially maths A levels, it's like solving questions like a computer without having the faintest idea what you're doing) but my future depends on it so I took them seriously enough. It sounds like you're showing off with having learnt modules the morning before the exam. If your university place depends on your exam results, why haven't you started revising at least a week before?

    None of those would be to my taste either - I'm not a writer or a linguist :no: I even dropped my "with computer science" minor because the syntax of coding drove me up the wall.

    I did geology - it was really interesting and changed the way I look at the world and gave me lots of opportunities to learn new skills that have served me well. After maths, physics and chemistry A level the only thing I knew for sure was that I didn't want to do maths, physics or chemistry at university. Then I went on an engineering summer school and ruled that out too and stumbled across geology.

    If I was starting again from scratch I think I'd do something like http://aub.ac.uk/courses/ba/ba-modelmaking/ - I love making things (BIG lego fan) and the range of opportunities to make everything from prosthetics and film props/films to architectural models and playing with a bunch of 3d printers/CAD/CNC etc kit sounds utterly amazing. (that's not in clearing though :p: )

    This is though: GBBO Foundation Degree at *the* best place for catering/food science degrees in the UK :cool:

    Frantically going back to subject-specific exam threads and looking at the unofficial OCR mark schemes trying to recall what I'd scribbled 3 months ago and roughly calculating my raw marks and then guessing my UMS based on grade boundary predictions, sound 👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽
