If he actually was in possession of some wit, then it would have been mildly amusing. The jokes themselves are very funny, but it the crappy way in which he presented them that killed it.

Hmm, his core argument was that Philosophy was all about asking about the meaning of life and how that was not really relevant in the real world. An argument with one point. Not that strong is it?

Troll unPC? Careful how you use it? Please educate us!
Hmm but LE is probably slightly more useful in the real world than Philosophy; not to say philosophy isn't a more interesting degree though.. I'm sure most people will understand the direction he is heading in with his (simplistic) argument; it had potential but yes, I'd agree it was poorly presented.

I know it's ridiculous but on some popular forums, if you call someone a troll you get banned..!

Surely if you have an issue with a specific users conduct, you should be best off contacting them directly or privately and not detach away from the intended purpose of the thread? Anyway, just had my Trinity Hall Land Economy interview today

I doubt he will tell you what questions he was asked. However, it would be good to know how it went!

Perhaps. Also, I thought that the admissions tutors asked you not to share what questions you were asked incase they use the same ones for the other applicants?

AEA's are Advanced Extension Awards-they're exams in addition to your Alevel exams, they're not compulsory and only people with around 270+ at AS in the subject are recommended to take it. not all subjects do it either, but subjects like geography and economics do. They can impress universities, but the downside to them is that a university may make it part of your conditional offer. The results come in the form of merit, distinction, etc. Am not certain as to the formatof the exams, but the questions are definitely supposed to be more demanding than the Alevel exams. hope that helps

Yeah, I took one in RS and would describe it as the bridge between A-level essays and university essays. Not much preparation is needed, provided you've revised your A-level syllabus. I took mine after I got my offer from Cambridge as I had read that they might consider you if you have AAB+ a Merit- I thought it was worth taking as a bargaining tool if anything I guess. I'd recommend it.

I haven't mentioned it on my PS or SAQ, but my Economics teacher recommended I take the AEA in the summer. Do you think it would be wise to mention this at interview? Or send a letter? Or not mention it all?

Thanks.

I hadn't mentioned it on my PS or my SAQ, purely because I hadn't intended to take one until I got my offer and saw in the prospectus that if I missed my grades, AAB+ Merit might get me through. Not many schools take them, so I don't think Cambridge would see it as necessary to take one- some colleges include them in their offers (see back of prospectus)...and I for one would not have liked an offer including one. I don't think there is any point mentioning it now to be honest, but it's up to you. If you get an offer it's nice to have in case you miss a grade, but I doubt it will influence whether or not you actually get an offer.

I never asked by the Admission Tutor not to reveal the questions asked, but judging by other threads on this forum there does seem to be some sort of unbeknownst confidentially agreement binding all prospective undergraduates. My interviews went well, thankfully

hey
i have my interview tomorrow at sidney. have prepped up by looking through all my past economics (im on a gap yr) reading the economist and national geographic and other such related books. have also researched my interviewers (can't harm anything, may have been a waste of time but at least i feel prepaired!) and now just hoping for the best. ive had an offer from york for environmental economics and environmental mamagement (formerly EEE) which i would be happy to take so im just gonna hope for the best ... with all my fingers and toes crossed lol...
