    So you created a separate thread just so you get more views ?
    Sounds awfully egoistic when you put it that way. Yes, I did it to get more views, that's exactly why I created a separate thread. But if I want to say thank you, then it's pointless saying it thousands of posts into a thread, where my post will get swamped by people's who are effectively in a conversation.

    Congrats, but why do you need to create a thread to tell everyone? Is the Economics 2010 Applicants/Offers Thread not good enough for you?
    He's just pumped about the offer, guy.

    Congratulations, OP.

    edit: You weren't having a go at him anyway. I see your point, Greg.

    It's a bit late saying this now, I know, but I got an A*AA offer from Cambridge this month.

    Just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone on TSR who helped me get there - there's tons of good advice and resources floating around here, and I just wanted to acknowledge that and show my appreciation. This isn't necessarily with direct tips or anything, but I have picked up a whole load for my PS and interview preparation and stuff from going through threads here, so cheers.

    Congrats... The best way to thank TSR is by advising and sharing your experience with the newer entrants!
    Yep, will do. Will post my PS and stuff after I've heard from everywhere else.

    Don't post your PS until next year when you are at university. If you post it after you have all your decisions, I think UCAS could still detect your PS as plagiarism and you could lose your places.

    On side note - looking at your GSCE predicted grades - I do not understand why are you continuing with Latin? Why do you want to contaminate your possible 13A* with 1 C :confused:
    I do it after school, so it's not detracting too much from my studies. I really enjoy it - think I would be capable of a higher mark if I had more than an hour a week on it, but don't want to do it when I could do something else. I like the subject, find it useful and the fact that it is now the only lesson I have with two of my best friends may have something to do with it.. Do you think it would contaminate my grades though, ie will universities look at me less favourably with it? I thought it would add to my points etc, though I have wondered whether to give it up as many have, and will doubtless do again closer to the exams.:p:

    Will do. Last lesson, we locked our teacher out of the classroom twice and a student hid for half an hour before the teacher noticed she was there! (its ok, the teacher has a laugh too) We all need a chance to rebel sometime...
