    I was in the exact same position. Really looking forward to going. I'm sure you will be just fine

    What subjects did you take for sixth form?
    Ah thanks, I hope uni is awesome for you
    History, English, Philosophy, Sociology. And for some reason general studies (which I'm expecting at best an E in lol). Wbu?

    Did you like sociology? People either really love it or loathe it. For me it was my worst subject, mostly because with my teacher you just wrote out of the textbook. I was contemplating suicide every lesson.

    Lol exact same thing with me. Some times i would have a double lesson right at the end of the day and gawd it was boring. Teacher would talk, then give us a book and work on from there.

    It could of been taught in a more interesting way.

    I was contemplating suicide every lesson. < That made me laugh big time

    oh god the Friday double period was a killer. I hate when teachers spring a question on you when they know your not listening lol. Philosophy had a really bad effect on our class in the first month, we all thought we knew everything about the universe

    haha glad to be of service

    Yep and then it all gets squashed and ripped up into tinny bits lol. Along with philosophy we did Buddhism as well, that was really good. Did some meditation as well

    Yeah the double friday was a killer, so was some of my English classes as well.

    I dunno man. I'm looking to get into graduate entry medicine next year, this means relevant work experience. The jobs I'm applying for generally involve working with the sick/elderly and wiping bums/cleaning up mess/getting people in and out of bed etc.

    Kind of thing I'm willing to do as it's all part of the package if I want to work in medicine, you need to learn personal care from the ground up. Just not IDEAL, yano?

    Cheers! Uni is a lot of fun though, join societies, join societies and while you're at uni make sure you join societies. I lived with 6/7 people throughout uni and only me and 1 other had ayn sort of social life outside of the housemates because we did sports. The rest did no clubs or anything and spoke to barely anyone on their course. It actually became a bit of an issue that me and the other guy who went out a lot were on the same course so had the same freinds from there, he did rugby and I did boxing/rowing. We both had several groups of freinds who we would go out with/do stuff seperately and the rest didn't, feel the sort of resented us for that in the end...

    JUST MAKE SURE YOU JOIN A SOCIETY, doesnt HAVE to be sport if thats not your thing.
    (I digress)

    Only had 4 hour lectures (5 hours once cause lecturer showed up an hour late saying he forgot he was teaching...just as I was about to leave too. He taught the whole 4 hours) because the Biology office at Potsmouth university couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery and timetabled all our 2 hour lectures back to back. So, technically we would get like a 5 minute break in the middle of the 4 hours but that was about it

    Not going to lie I had some pretty awesome naps in those lessons
    lool your teacher must have had some kind of grudge against you guys.
    Next year we're doing 'love across the ages'...not to be a cynic but I really cant be bothered with all of that 'undying love' stuff.
    that being said, I'm a bit of a sucker for Wuthering Heights.

    Yeah I was going to volunteer at a care home a couple of years back but I bottled it and went to Oxfam instead. I know it seems really annoying now, but if you just get through this year then you can go on to what you actually want. It'll all be worth it
