    yep, I'm doing lit and I spent over £100 this morning online ordering the books I need to read, and that was only in one section! My mum wasn't too chuffed ahaha, this is why they need to give us student loans earlier than the term we actually start!

    You should double check if you need the books for your course! The ones with an asterisk are the ones they use during the course and any others are just to introduce you I thought I needed 24 books but I only need 2 or 3 hahaha

    That sounds really good as well, jealous about the comedy night and possibly the bingo :P UV night is colour coded as well you have to dress in you college colours and Grizedale is Blue which i'm pretty happy with

    I can't see mine which is really annoying but it seems no one doing marketing has heard yet so hopefully they get the timetable up on Monday and then I need to figure out what else I want to for minors :s

    Just out of curiosity you probably haven't tried but can you access the Target Connect jobsite for Lancaster, apparently that's where they will be advertising jobs in the college bars and stuff and it tells me I don't have permission when I log in
    Yellow isn't exactly the most flattering colour, but i'm happy with mine too - suits the UV party anyway Like wise, i'm genuinely very jealous about your casino night - I have a three piece suit that's not gotten any real action since prom!

    Oh, What do you get to chose from for minors? Also have you tried using the Lancaster app? That's how i first found out

    And just checked now, it's telling me the same thing :hmmm: maybe it's some error with the entire system if it's not even letting us try log in, but then again 2 is a small sample. Have you tried calling them?

    Just the college colours on the Grizedale freshers timetable thingy it says this :


    The college rivalry will be at its peak tonight as we go head to head with County college at our Blue Vs Yellow UV party at Elements – one of Lancaster’s biggest clubs! Dress as bright blue as possible and prepare for some Grizedale Vs County competition throughout the night! Save the blue glowsticks you receive free with your purchase of a Grizedale Freshers pack for tonight!

    Would anyone be able to help me here?

    I am going to apply for physics with particle physics and cosmology(Bsc) at Lancaster in the next couple of months and I was wondering if my grades were okay.

    In AS I got physics (B - Includes 88% in module 1 and thinking of resitting module 2), chemistry (A - 85%), computing (A - 92%) and maths (B - 1 UMS mark off an A >_<). I have dropped computing now to study AS further maths and I think that this, alongside the fact that I have read several physics books based on university work (relativity etc.) will maybe give my application an edge. My predicted grades are A*AAA for physics, chemistry, maths and further maths respectively.

    Has anyone had these grades (or similar) and been accepted onto a Lancaster physics course?

    Yes yellow is a good colour to stand out brightly, Grizedale are going to look like smurfs :P but I always knew there was a reason for me keeping my blue tights

    Wow prom there is no way my prom dress would fit me now :s

    Marketing related subject so I'm going to do Management and the other one can be anything. I'm stuck with that one, I would have definitely done art but the art department wont let me so I'm looking at either Creative writing or law possible Creative writing more. I don't really know though. Do you have any minors to do?

    I have tried the app just hoping for Monday
    Haven't tried calling them but I think it's a relatively new system so it's possibly not fully active or we are not registered for it yet as new students. I'm going to wait until I get my LUSU number though and hopefully I can get on the jobshop instead, but thank you

    Haha, then it'll be smurfs and simpsons characters (I can't think of anything else that's yellow)! God, it's like you were destined to join grizedale and go to this rave :rolleyes:

    My prom stuff probably fits better now than it did then - i did chub up just before the hallowed day :')

    I'm sure you'll find something you'll enjoy - whether it be creative writing, law, or whatever I'm surprised they don't let you mix marketing and art though... it sounds quite relevant to me, especially if you can use it for design! Nope, Just good old engineering classes and a **** load of maths... ahhh, my friends keep telling me that they think i've made a huge mistake

    Oh yeah, I still need to apply for my purple card and stuff! Thank god you mentioned the LUSU! And it's fine, i probably should start thinking about looking for something myself.

    None have mine have asterisks, yet for English literature I'll presume a lot of them are necessary. Oh well, good thing I like reading

    Where can you check your reading list? The only reading list I've gotten in through an email, and that was for theatre. I don't have anything for English Literature yet, as far as I know.

    I'm pretty sure my washing machine lived through the cold war, i don't under estimate it :L You get paid to iron!? I should have though of demanding that from my mam since i'm pretty fussy when i iron :')
    Hahaha, but the outdoorsy stuff is like 90% of australia! But then again, i was under age and when i went but still really liked the cities as well Never know, there might be a leeds, australia as well! Hmmm, i had never thought of it that way, that's some pretty sound logic! Are you sure i can't convince you to take a stem degree?
    Oh yeah, i keep forgetting about how big the desk is and all - i might have to find something to put on there too By the way, have you got your timetable yet?
    Haha sounds like a scary washing machine haha yeah dad pays me cos he thinks I wouldn't do it otherwise :') I didn't mean not do anything outdoors I just meant like not go into the outback :') stick to the coastline and surely it can't be as bad? :') hahahah no, I find it so dull! History is where my heart lies
    Yeah hah I am hoping to not make it too cluttered though! Going to try keep my room reasonably tidy :') erm yeah, but since its history it's only 1/3 and its only the lecture not the seminars so it doesn't tell me much :') got a two hour lecture on Mondays at 11 :') how about you?

    I think most people are trying to :P I just like the idea that they sort you into a house I want to know what I would be in. The rest sounds good as well Do you think you might go to it?

    I have always wanted to know! The geek in me is strong, especially for Doctor Who, I probably will I also want to join the philosophy society too. We’ll see at Freshers

    Smurfs and Simpsons wow we just need face paint and silly hair/hats and we are sorted :P

    I've just filled out a lot from prom, I'm going with more curves opposed to chubbed up though!

    I know the head of the marketing department is trying to get them to allow it but no such luck :/ ah well should enjoy the others anyway

    Engineering is a great one to get a career with opens lots of doors, but yes Maths makes me want to run in circles screaming

    I managed to get my purple card sorted a couple days ago, it was being very silly when I was trying to get the picture on it kept turning it sideways but I gave up after a while and tried again the next day and it was the right way round that time

    I’m quite the commuted geek especially about The Doctor it will definitely be interesting. I live in Lancaster but chose to live on campus for the experience and I can’t wait to start! I just need to organise myself a little!

    Hmmm, and would you still do it if you didn't get paid? Or are you just in it for the money, not the love of ironing :') I didn't go to the outback either, other than driving between cities once or twice - i wish i had though! And yeah, the coasts were pretty tame, i think, just like britain... but really hot and with less chavs Ouch, way to shoot a boy and his degree scheme down! That'll teach me to be nice
    Mmhmm, yeah i'm expecting labs which aren't shown on my timetable, but i've got 9-2pm of lectures on mondays and tuesdays, 10-12 on wednesday, 11am on thursday, and 9 am on friday - so not very many lie ins :lol: How much time in seminars and stuff are you to expect?

    I won't lie, i got my UV paints and stuff today... I felt so awkward handing it over to the cashier lady. But red, yellow, blue, and purple should do me fine

    Curves look good on girls! Haha, not so much on boys though - same logic with prom dresses actually.

    Well, good luck anyway, hopefully you can get the mino you want, or at very least get another one you like just as much! But obviously don't take maths if you don't need it - save yourself!!! :laugh:

    I tried doing mine the first time a week or so ago - it kept tring to tell me i was born in december of '95! But i did it again yesterday, and it knew me now It even tried to tell me my favourite colour was burgundy or something. (If so, it was right D: )

    The experience will definitely be worth the extra cost, it's what makes uni so great I really need to go through all my stuff and sort out what I need to take with me and what can stay at home :P have you started buying stuff yet?

    I should probably buy some more stuff for that type of thing I guess :s where can you buy UV paint from?

    What are you talking about guys look awesome in prom dresses

    It changed my favourite colour each time but I cant remember the last one it came up with it was a really strange colour began with a c I think :s
