    Good deal
    The Lottery's a bit of a pain like that lol. But you'll still keep trying no doubt.
    Yeah I don't play every week, just when I feel like it. Probably will stop soon once I start earning. Feels like it's the only way to give my self a chance of getting rich now. Later I'll invest that money.

    I don't play really, it's just the family. I don't want to get into it really. It would be funny now if you won the money though What would you invest it in?

    I'd have to do some research into what looks good at the time. For example apple/google etc a few years ago. Probably something to do with renewable energy now will do well in a year years. I'm gonna try and get in to it when I have some money.

    I have applied at Bangor, Hull (Scarborough), and Stirling for Oceanography/Marine Biology.

    I've only got an offer for one of the Bangor courses, which wants about 100 more points then the prospectus said, but the other one I applied for there wants that many points in the prospectus, so idk how that's going to end up.

    I got a letter from Hull saying I have to fill this form out unless I want to pay the price of an international student, because I wasn't born in the UK. Even though I said I was only there for a week, and that I'm a British citizen etc in my application. :rant:

    People's stupidity/lack of common sense amazes me sometimes. :rolleyes:

    Just go with your favourite really, as long as you think you can achieve it

    That's ridiculous - they obviously just didn't go through your application properly. Probably some secretary lol. I'm sure it'll work out as long as they read the form properly. Haha

    I think they want 100 points more because I'm doing a BTEC, I did say it was very advanced though, we made paracetamol and aspirin at one point.

    I don't know much about BTECs, but if it's advanced like you say then it should be taken into account. Like I said, if you think you can get it then go for it

    I went to bed around 4am, got to sleep at 5am, and then got up at 9am. Though I have regular bouts of insomnia, I actually feel tired haha. Something to do as in work or just general amusement? YouTube's pretty handy if you want to watch old episodes of stuff
