    I actually didn't really enjoy it at GCSE, and nearly didn't keep it on until A level! Now I love it (obvs lol). Wow that's so tragic how you didn't get to keep it on, because it's so cool to have a language. But we'll defo speak in it if we get in. OMG I want an offer so badly !
    Me too!! I'm worried about not even getting to the interview stage

    How are your grades by the way? (Like GCSE, AS, predicted A2)

    She probably won't, which is a shame, because it's not really the student experience then....

    I'm hoping Worcester don't do a "Harry Potter" Bop theme like Brown did (I know someone who went to Brown and apparently it was very awkward...)

    "Who are you going as Emma?"

    OH hell yes I thought this was just Fermanagh. I now call my county "Backwards Fermanagh" because it SO is. Yeah in my school about two thirds of the year always goes to QUB or UU... It's pathetic! And now since they're keeping the fees the same the majority of my year will be applying to these uni's or down south!
    Yeah everyone wants to go to UU or QUB, otherwise TCD/UCD. Personally I can't think of anything more depressing than spending another three years in NI, and I'm not really rich enough to live in Dublin either :sad:

    but we're exceptions :awesome:

    Pfft don't worry. I worry too much these days. It's more important that you keep your head down and work!
    GCSEs:7A*s, 2As ASs: 4As
    For my predictions I haven't been told all of them but I've been predicted at least 2A*s. I reckon my predictions will be A*A*A*A.
    What about yourself?

    I knooow people think I'm exaggerating when I say I'd rather not go to Uni than go to NI. BIT of an exaggeration but not far from the truth!
    Also, how is your school with predicting A Level grades? I'm getting the impression that NI schools are more reluctant to predict you higher grades, but that might just be me...
    Ha yes Dublin is so nice but SO expensive

    Well...it being "banter" never really occurred to me, but sure!

    When I asked for A* predictions, they said "But do you NEED an A*?"

    I said "I think you're missing the point" :sigh:

    got sorted in the end, as you can see from my sig :yeah:

    Everyone and anyone who asked a question via email to the Oxford UG admissions people will probably have a shock when they go to their email inboxes right now haha. Some idiot emailed the entire list by accident and now people are freaking out.

    It's not people asked a question, it's anyone who request a prospectus... probably only upwards of ten thousand people on that list...

    LOL bad times. I know my German teacher said she wasn't going to predict me an A* because she didn't want to "put pressure" on me. Nearly lost my life! Even though I got over 90 UMS in my AS.
    Oh well, good going for you too, at least it's all sorted. Stress over regarding that. There are still plenty of hurdles to get through with my school however, as if the Oxford application wasn't stressful enough. My school is just adding to my stress! :sad:
