    The visa centre in KL was staffed by mainly indians...while I don't mean to sound at all racist, I had a HARD time trying to interpret what they were saying through some HEAVY accents...'in my mind' somehow became 'marmite' and for some reason, I actually wrote it down as one of the items to bring...sigh...
    thats good preparation for england then. lol.

    as for the visa thing, you can always hire a lawyer to take care of everything and save you the trouble.

    haha thats true...I think Arshad Ajeed was the first Pakistani mayor of London...I should have dragged my uncle along especially since he's married to my Indian aunt. He'd be able to understand them, innit? :P

    Drop working at the end of this term definitly. Spend whatever remaining time you have preparing for your stay in the UK or for your course (reading, etc.).

    Definitely give yourself a break... you need the month to pamper yourself with life's luxuries!

    DITCH WORK. don't be like me, wasting away in the office for 7 months plus, able to beat everyone (all the permanent staff that is) hands down when it comes to grumbling.

    you need some time to sort out your luggage, emotions, and other types of baggage. and say all the goodbyes.

    Haha i'm sure that (forced) decision will pay off in the long run as long as you score well for your MORSE course! :gthumb:

    Ok to catch up with an entire pageful of posts:

    Dodgy typo was having the year typed as 2005 instead of 2006, dodgy lack of documents was not enough evidence to show that DAMMIT my parents have enough money to pay for not 1 but 3 years of my education alright?

    That said, the visa application was *finally* successful as of this afternoon. Now to wait for the visa to get back to me *twiddles thumbs*

    Now, wouldn't it be horribly ironic if something happened along the way?

    Also, I second cms regarding Sam not coming here, however Val if you so wish you can get her email address from either cms or myself.. PM away!

    And I'm working til 31 aug too >< but it's part-time so I've still got time to settle all the forms and paperwork and random miscellaneous things. Oddly enough, I'm dying to start packing for real No panic attack yet, here's hoping it won't hit when I step off the plane onto Heathrow. Ack.

    Why would anyone bring Marmite to England?!

    Hello everybody, i am new here (relatively)

    I am currently doing the International Baccalaureate Programme and am in Year 1.

    I read in some of the previous posts that Oxford does not allow deferment? Is that true?

    Well, I intend to do either Law or Oriental Studies in Oxford (hopefully, prayerfully, preferably).

    Could someone fill me in on these two courses in Oxford?

    Thanks

    it does allow, for a year. more than that, it's subjected to each college's own policies.

    :hello:

    Oxford allows you to defer your application for a year. Like Alvin said, beyond that, it's down to the individual college... i'm not aware of any colleges which permit 2-year deferments.

    Are you male or female, BTW? I would still encourage you to apply in yr2 even if you're male, for the sake of experience. You may be forced to give up the offer, but the entire application process is an experience you'll enjoy.

    hi!

    with NS at its current duration, you might be able to start school only 1 year later than the girls. and you could consider skipping the first few weeks of school if you can't make it to the uk so soon. i know someone who's going to do that.

    oh and i'm assuming you're of the male persuasion.

    Few guys manage to do that BTW. Many combat fit guys will ORD in November but only a handful will be able to go to the UK in the same year that they ORD, since it involves you missing 2-3 weeks of school and leniency on the part of your superiors. I'll be done in January and have ~9 months to bum around before uni!
