    It'd not be weird to admit to actually having a Harry Potter fetish though, wouldn't it?

    If you think you can be bothered with the rigmarole of early application --> admissions test --> interview, i don't see why not, your grades are pretty decent, I think, certainly not *bad*. And of course it's only 1/5 of your application! Definitely worth thinking about, and you probably want to speak to someone more knowledgeable than I! Perhaps a head of year etc at school/college?

    Well, my GCSE's are similar to yours (A*A*A*AABBBBC) and I'm still taking the plunge and applying for English If you're truly passionate about the subject and think you can perform reasonably well in the ELAT, then I'd say go for it! You don't really have anything to lose.

    Flavoured wallpaper? Delicious. Licking walls might be a bit weird though :awesome:

    Are you feigning innocence or are you unfamiliar with the slang usage of the word vanilla?

    or maybe it's only a slang word among lgbt people :ashamed2:

    I really hope no admissions tutors are reading this

    Nothing wrong with licking walls!

    Amusingly, I had completely forgotten about that particular connotation of the word.... Admission's tutors will hopefully have given up following this thread 298 pages ago!

    Ah, my man, there's absolutely nothing wrong with flirting with friends, really, it's possibly more fun than when the flirting's for real.
    That is so true!

    I loved Exeter and Brasenose, and I absolutely can't pick between the two; may have to toss a coin! What about you?
    Exeter.
