    The **** kind of question is that?

    There's a point at the around the 1:40 mark that'll make it happen though:

    Weird question but supposedly people can make it euphoric and full bodied experiences. Buddhist monks e.g. do this practise a lot and it makes them feel great.

    I'm liking the community vibe here. Seems like with internationals the rival players stop fighting each other is like how TSR people stop getting into club arguments at every opportunity.


    Grad schemes means that you will get a good salary as long as you are able to get onto one, you should be eligible for them. Management would get you a good salary e.g. or recruitment.

    Also have you considered going into law? Eco you're probably not going to get a place at uni unless you have done at least Maths AS level.

    care to elaborate? also any specific jobs i could do with my alevels?

    guys, i don't know what to say.
    psychology is one of those that if you put the work in, you'll do well.
    but a U in A2 level in any subject whatsoever is unheard of tbh
    LP yet again surprising us all
    (Original post by Lyrical Prodigy)
    Alright guys no need to be rude about the whole psychology thing... I did AS and A2 psychology in one year in my second year of sixth form because at the start of A levels I picked English Literature, Media Studies and Gov and Politics (yes only 3 subjects I know), the G&P teacher was diagnosed with cancer and left the school and there was nobody else to teach the subject at A level standards there was only 6 of us in the class so we were given the option of either doing Sociology or Psychology to carry on in one year and thus I chose psychology. So imagine how difficult it was juggling all that in my second year alone, that's still no excuse for the grade but still. I'm still happy with my A and B.

    There's really no need to be mean about it guys seriously
    No hate on her, fair enough trying it all in one year. I did AS FM in half a year, it was a *****.

    I dropped Psychology at AS, I did it at AS knowing I was going to drop it and only picked it because I heard it was easy. Only subject I dossed about in, it was just me and a really good friend (and some other random guy I can;t remember), the rest were all girls, best thing about psychology really.

    It's AS level structure was awful and I can understand why at that point it was regarded as a "soft" subject (can't talk about what it's like now, I'm talking 2008), I don;t want to rip into it too much and upset Lukeyboi but suffice to say I average 94 and all I did was recall some studies, the exam was purely recall. Remember a study, one mark, remember the the date, one mark, the outcome, one mark etc Two of the most ridiculous exams I've ever sat. The teacher predicted me a C and constantly tried catching me out but after the results came out and I was signing off Psychology he's trying to persuade me to stay on :bird:

    Yeah so your application is based on academics and a separate test everyone does called the situational judgement test. The academics is based on your decile ranking from your year, any extra undergrad degrees, and any publications you have. That's all worth 50% of your application, the SJT the other 50%. Your overall score is out of 100, so the top dogs with scores of like 85+ will more or less get their top choices and so they work down the list in order of total score allocating people to their choices based on availability. But those with higher scores get priority which is fair enough.

    If your bro got into London he must have done pretty well. It's generally very competitive to get in, especially north-west thames and north-central thames.
    He was at Imperial and in some modules was in the top 5%, suffice to say he's pretty clever and got most of the brains in the family, he's at St George's I believe. Even with all that money though if you were to work it our hourly it wouldn't be that amazing. His normal days tend to be 8am-6:30pm and when he's on call 8am-9pm sometimes later. Unless you love medicine I don;t see how you can make it as a doctor. Earning potential off the charts but too get there you have 6 years of med school and then all this other stuff before you start earning the big bucks. Insane.

    That's so awesome!! Ebo you've got me all paranoid now, watch me explore the uni for the rest of the year saying to all the staff "Do you happen to have a nephew who's on the student room by the username of Eboracum by any chance?"

    Wow, small world I guess.

    Yeah I need to start thinking about the TC's and stuff but luckily my uni has their own LPC programme so that's a bonus. The law school I feel is very underrated actually.

    I won't come cheap though luls :cool: lol jk jk

    What are thinking of doing as a career and what are you studying/studied?
    It's a small world to be honest. My father is a lecturer at a West Midlands university, and many of my cousins are teachers both here and around the world. My family tend to gravitate to education. My cousin, her husband and 1 year old baby just moved to Thailand to accept jobs out there.

    Yes exactly. And to be honest, most people grow out of the university snobbery anyway. It was something I cared about in first year, then I grew up. Only ones that don't seem to be those at London institutions that are aiming for Investment Banking. It's all just people trying to big up their own self-importance. Do well at uni and you get on in life no matter where you went.

    Yes, I can imagine you aren't cheap, I bet you only go on dates with folk at Hertfordshire who agree to take to you top restaurants.

    Me? Well. My passion in life is Politics. And that's what my degree is in (I'm final year), so something to do with that. Would love to get on the Civil Service, but so does everyone else and honestly I haven't applied yet. I'm starting to think I'd love to do a Masters somewhere different. But equally I'd love to teach in Japan or South Korea at some point as well. I just want to do different things, have fun, do qualifications, travel, and then when I'm 30 probably begin a political career. I'm ambitious though, I want to go all the way to the top.

    Thanks Ebo you smooth talker

    I find it hilarious the Man United forum has become a careers advice page.. kinda nice in a way for people that speak to each other every single day about one subject and one subject only, to branch out a bit and help each other. Even if it is technically against the rules

    This is what the International Break does though eh? 2 weeks off club football and this place is basically the UCAS forum.. banter.

    Edit: Whoops just realised the UCAS jokes been dropped before.. my bad
    Haha You're the first girl I've ever spoken to who loves Manchester United more than I do. If we were at the same uni I'd have talked you into dinner by now.

    But yes. It's nice for us all to chat and get away from the stresses of football. I hope people like to hear me in a different context rather than the rants. I think the other week I realised that I didn't know anything about Jammy and wanted to and it developed from there. Great to see so many passionate young people with a sense of direction, whether that be degree or career or both. And we can all help each other and encourage and motivate. I like that in a forum.

    Mendes seems to change everyday. Not a chance Ronaldo will end his career at Madrid.

    You can work in a bank as a cashier/customer support person. You're on 15-20k starting but you can rise to about 30k in about 5 or more years if you work hard enough. If you do that at age 18 by the time you're 23/24 you should be on good money. You can always be promoted to manager from within too which can get you a 40k job depending on experience. A family member e.g. has been working for two years and there has been talk of management, if he stays there for some time and gains experience by the time he's 25 could be on 35k or above.

    There is money to be made if you are capable of leading others at your job.

    Thanks for understanding!
    Oh right that's interesting, I did OCR Psychology so the setup is quite different to what it presumably was I guess. In AS you are required to memorise 12 studies, about 4 or 5 issues and debates and learn the beliefs of several types of psychology such as Social psychology, cognitive psychology, individual differences, developmental and the psychodynamic and behaviourist perspective. For the AS exam you HAVE to know every single study as you will be asked about each one, there's no guessing game. Then in A2 you learn 72 studies, you have to memorise all, the methodology, results etc etc and you learn more about issues and debates and you learn about inferential statistics and graphs. However in A2, it is a sort of guessing game because you don't use all the studies in the exam. It was overwhelming but oh well, stuff happens.

    That's annoying that they didn't let you do science or maths for getting a B in it as plenty of people I know got worse and did it.

    It's not a problem trust me. Your subjects are strong subjects for the most part in English, Economics and Psychology. You can easily get onto law at a top uni e.g.

    Na, still a pretty young guy. Feels weird being in my 20s though. 24 is a good age though. What's your plans in the future btw? Future manager of Atlético Mineiro or Porto? Or you gonna manage Benfica and intentionally get them relegated? :lol:
