    Are you an EU Student? If you are, then I think you can apply for student finance normally, into your foreign account, and then transfer the money across once you arrive in the UK.

    If you're not an EU student then contact the university and see what possibilities there are of securing loans in your home country.

    Hope this helps...

    If not, have a quick look on the uni websites; I found this on soas: http://www.soas.ac.uk/registry/funding/

    Probably not, unless you can get that sort of power of attorney from their bank. It might be bank specific but I'd check to make sure.

    It might be best not to use your parents account anyway just in case you lose the card or something happens and they lose something as well, but ultimately it's up to you

    I see, I'd rather get my own account too but my parents are kind of certain I'll be using there's - I guess I'll have to talk to them, maybe they just don't know!

    It is definitely definitely definitely worth trying to get your own.

    Have a look at the 'resitting A2 modules' thread, I think it's in the gap years section- I'll add the link in a second if I can find it. There are lots of people there who've looked for centres around the country, I'm sure there'll be one near you if you're in London! Or could you ask to still be entered at your old college even if you don't attend the lessons? It depends what your reasons were for leaving I suppose, but usually somewhere you've attended will be a lot cheaper than somewhere they don't know you.

    ifs Level 3 Diploma in Financial Studies (A-LevelEquivalent), Grade B(achieved),
    Chemistry (A-Level predicted, AS obtained), Grade Aobtained, Grade A predicted,
    Psychology (A-Level predicted, AS obtained), Grade Aobtained, Grade A predicted,
    Sociology (A2 predicted(AS not taken due to one year a level)), Grade A predicted,
    Economics (A2 predicted(AS not taken due to one year a level), Grade A predicted,
    Photography (AS), Grade D (achieved).

    Total = AAAAABd

    This would be after 3 years of study, however I would nothave spent more than 2 years studying an A-Level and no more than a yearstudying an AS-Level.

    I think I'm getting some mild form of RSI. I've always had a weaker right hand wrist and it easily sprains but recently I've had to have it in a support because it hurts to write. I got it about a month ago and then it went away but its coming back again.
    Really not ideal as we approach exam season.

    I actually watched a video about RSI today. I think it was by TechQuickie on YouTube. Might be worth checking out?

    Managed a high B in my AH Maths prelim!

    The grade boundary for an A was like 63% last year because of how difficult the subject is, good news to be honest! Aiming for a high A by results day.

    I don't know what the policy is with St Andrews but UCAS Track is generally really behind when it comes to formally notifying you of an offer. It took about a month for my tracking page to show three of my offers. :lol: Could be worth sending an email to their admissions department if you really want to find out.

    Get down to the doctors. I have wrist issues and basically I have a note from the doctor that means if my wrists are bad during exam season I can use a computer or dictate to do my exams so if you do have a problem, they'll be able to sort you out with something like that.

    By the way, I bought a gel wrist rest, since I use computers quite a lot. It's really comfortable and I highly recommend it, it's a great investment.
