    Guys does anyone know how to use an e-signature? One of my college forms requires it and I was under the impression that all that was needed was a photo of your handwritten signature, but now I've googled some stuff about it and I'm not sure. Will I be fine with just my photographed signature or what?

    Edit: I've found a website where I can make whatever an 'e-signature' happens to be but although it's free there's probably a catch somewhere, and I'm useless at drawing (this is an MS Paint-style setup) so I can't actually make the thing look anything like my usual, handwritten signature.
    Is this for St John's? All I did was sign a piece of random piece of paper, scan that in and copy the image of the signature. I sent the form to them and they are yet to contact me to tell me that was wrong.

    Yeah, I had to fill a form in and send it back. It said at the bottom it's only for statistical purposes, though I was laughing and crying while I filled it in

    It'll be okay! You'll find lots of people at your College and definitely other NatScis too that also feel awkward

    Zacken and Krollo really make everyone feel uncomfortable.

    Lol I feel like if my DoS sees my UMS she'll think that someone else sat my exams last year

    I didn't even know there is a larger one I'm part of a small Bio NatSci one which is friendly and quiet!
