    How does it? Maybe people just don't like those universities...
    The whole point of the exercise is determining which of the Russell Group universities are the best( obviously Oxbridge) maybe you could excuse them just missing out on winning but going out in the early rounds-thats trolling and they are the msot popular universities by a mile source:http://www.theunipod.com/making-your...media-rankings
    I think it could be due to the fact that lots of people are jealous they didn't get into Oxbridge so vote them out early and try to pretend they went to the best university in the UK in their own deluded fantasy.

    Yes, forum games are such accurate measures of opinion within a population with regards to a highly subjective subject

    To be fair, if the point is to have your university win the forum game, then that seems like a reasonably effective method of psychological warfare :u:

    the next two lessons I have are between 2:10-4:10, and then I get the bus home, then I'm off to the football. What are the odds I get a tonne of homework all due in tomorrow?

    I've barely been using TSR much so it's fine! Sorry to hear about that though.

    College is taking over my life! I didn't realise how much i have forgotten too its crazy. Only thing where I haven't forgotten too much is maths Yes, mocks should be fun

    I've have 3 weeks now, lessons are going well so far enjoying myself. There is only one teacher I don't really like, for the reason she keeps picking on me But otherwise its good.

    Yeah, well I have in the past! But, because I missed a year of doing any proper physical exercise I've been too scared to attend training at College. I'm worried they'll all be amazing and I'll let everyone down. I'm trying to make myself go though! Do you play any sports?
    Quite often, i will spend half of my lunch break everyday on tsr in the college library where we have the computers.

    Haha yh, college is now my life aswell! Compared to my previous sixth form, i feel so at home here.

    Yh im loving it too. It is so typical to have a teacher who you hate, but i like all my teachers.

    Why don't you give it your best shot and see how it goes?
    And no, i really don't play any sports lol. It seems i am probably the only boy in this college who doesn't.
    But i like cricket, tennis and badminton. I just need to do loads of practice for them, i'll try to do so when i go uni.

    Yeah I'm doing it with OCR. I think it's quite fun tbh (more fun than I expected), but yeah remembering all the terms is difficult, but most you can figure out based on the words e.g. "heteropolysaccharide" hetero - 2 different (heterosexual), poly (many) saccharide (compound containing sugars?)

    But yes I understand it's so much to digest.

    Medicine is hard. I have bad grades. I learnt from my GCSEs that I will find it hard to get into medicine but I have put it up one gear, to steal the place of someone else, so I now work harder than ever. Trust me, don't give up. You can't just get through it, you will need to rip through it. You need to walk in and out of the exam like it was nothing. Remember someone want's that place A LOT more than you do, but you will have to want it MORE. You want to earn what is rightfully yours, so don't be like me and put it up one gear, put it up 10 fold.
    Just don't disappoint yourself, as long as you do that, you will be fine.
    Thanks so much for the support and advice!! I'm definitely not giving up, certainly not before I have my AS grades in hand and so know whether or not application is realistic. Good luck to you, hopefully we'll both get to where we want to be in the end!!

    Yes, I am and of course it's hard, every A level is hard - but I'm certainly finding biology to be one of the most interesting subjects I'm taking, which is great. It's difficult, but it's worth it because you learn so much and it's all so fascinating!

    I suppose the adjusting bit is quite hard. I'm sure you'll get used to it though, and when you do you should be able to do amazingly just the thing is, I had to work much harder than everyone thinks for my GCSE grades, they were pretty good but nothing special compared to the people on here, and now everyone around me expects me to do incredibly well at A level as well. But having had to work so hard for GCSE I'm not sure I can do that, even if I do work. And I want to study Medicine, so if I don't do ridiculously well I'll have to change my entire future plan, so it's all a little stressful but I'm sure we'll all get through it.
    I'm sure you are capable to getting what you need, so what if you need to revise a little more than some people to get there ? I just need to stop being so god damn lazy and I'm sure I will be fine haha . What did you get at gcse if you don't mind me asking ? I'm sure you did incredibly and dw some people of here are abnormally clever !!!

    Anyone else thinking about summer schools? They all seem to be over term time so I have no idea if I can even get permission to leave lessons for that long, but I'm pretty determined to get on one anyway and worry about the consequences later
