    the benefit of King's is that we dont have to bother with this gown stuff until we're there
    That's what they think.
    They don't know what they're missing....

    And you'll have to hire a gown for graduation, which is not the most economical way to wear a gown.

    is freshers week fun at Cambridge or do students just start studying?
    and is it only within your college or do you get to interact with other colleges?
    It's fun, definitely.
    Students for some courses (mainly maths/natsci) start working during the freshers week, but most do not.

    Most of freshers week events are organised by your college/college JCR exclusively for their own students, but there're also some events you can take part which is organised by university-wide club/society and other organisations, so there's a chance to meet others from other colleges, too.

    How old is this guy? I can't tell if he stopped doing imo after 2013 cus he was too old or he just found it too easy
    Jam, I am in contact with him I will see if he is on Part III courses yet.
    He finished in 2013 then had National service for 2 years till like mid of this academic year so got a specially defferred offer when he applied in 2013/2014 cycle. Didn't even sit step. Tbh who would.
    So he has been doing Uni maths for 3 years. He will for sure be senior wrangler, like no one is ahead, if he finished school thisbyear it would be very different. But 3 years of Uni maths will make a massive difference.
    If not him, maybe gunning.
    Lets see how many alphas he will get in Part II.

    You're clever enough to study at Cambridge, yet you think someone can "sort out" their anorexia within a month.

    Hmm. :beard:
    One word: Reverse liposuction.

    Two years older than us, I think - he served in the army for two years. (or something like that)

    Lol it's such along time ago, I can't remember. I might've.

    But I know all lot of students (including my daughter) who felt same as you just before they went to Cambridge.....or more precisely when those formality after the offer was confirmed post-result day started. ................................ and before exams every year since they got in.

    But they all survived!! ......and (mostly) happy they've been there. And that's most important thing, I think.
