    i think so, still deciding though for much the same reasons as you. not sure i would love it as much as univeristies but at the moment leaning very much towards oxford.

    im from london, you? yeah sure, sophie collis if you want to add me.
    Im from the Isle of Wight. Yeah same, I think to be honest 3 years slight sacrifice would be worth it for the connection and the sort of brand on your CV

    By all means, just the sheer quantity of work may limit what can only be described as play time.

    Yeah I am a bit worried about the workload too. I'm just going to have to get SUPER organised when October comes round.

    It really is manageable. You just have to be prepared to schedule work for yourself, or find something with a set schedule which will help bring some sort of structure (eg a sporting/musical commitment which means you have to be somewhere at a regular time).

    It's slightly different for sciences as you have labs, but in the humanities there really is little that is compulsory but for your tutorials. In some subjects you don't even need to go to the lectures.

    tl;dr: Don't worry. You'll have more than enough time to work and still have a good time doing other things.

    I'd rep you, but I've ran out for today - tomorrow then! Thanks for the encouragement, I'm anxious about the workload too.

    Thanks for this as well! I'm really worried about the workload too. I have horrible visions of me crying over Latin verbs every night!

    You'll be fine! You'll soon learn that the time to cry over Latin verbs is just before the language test, which is held at the horrible time of 9am on Tuesday morning. Luckily I can make it from my bedroom to the room within Exam Schools in 40 seconds...
