    Let me answer the question for you. You clearly are studying it with the intent to take part in it. #Hypocrite

    Well done bro, I would advise you to take a gap year and get yourself into Oxbridge/LSE/UCL/Warwick/Imperial (target unis) instead of Cass, but if you really like the course, then go for it.

    Any chance of teaching me about the stock markets and stuff, or giving me any websites for me to read, or any books? I just don't understand how you got all this information from? Investopedia uses a lot of technical words I don't understand

    My papa always says 'read' instead of study. It'll always take me a few secs to click if I'm with him and he's telling people that his granddaughter is 'reading biology at uni'.

    Documentaries / Books (financial markets & institutions is a good place to start) / General reading up on what all the abbreviations & terms mean / Setup a virtual trading account (equities/forex) and play about with it / Read up on some economics books both micro & macro / look into derivatives to get a flavour of the theory behind managing risk / learn how to read 10ks (balance sheets) / get yourself into some insight events to network & get advice from industry professionals / come up with your own trading strategies

    There's a lot you can do. Be intuitive..

    It's alright when old people say it.. they probably don't comprehend how stupid it sounds.

    Haha thanks :rolleyes:

    A little sacrifice and hard work goes along way. If it weren't for TSR I don't think I'd have the motivation to even try. A lot of people on here are so hard working, it's just a nice environment for motivation.

    It doesn't offend me when someone says it but it warns me that there is a higher than normal chance that I won't like said person.

    Lol, yes.. it was inspired by another recent thread. Although, it's just in general when talking face to face with someone and they say they're going to "read" a subject..

    ...Oook

    In punjabi, "Are you studying" is more like "parnah eh ?" ie: "Are you reading" so it's not just about being pretentious etc... For some, it's a language barrier thing
