    Aw thankyou :-) I will hopefully keep up with it although I get major stage fright



    Yes singing lessons can be very expensive and to be honest I think they are only useful to get grades! Apart from a few notes on my range and improving my technique my singing hasn't changed a great deal!
    Hahaha sounds like fun

    How?! I'd much rather be naturally gifted at maths or something that I will actually use !!
    Guitarists are another level I swear; I honestly consider singers to be the least talented of musicians because our instrument is our voice

    Exactly my point, we can't choose what we're naturally good at etc.

    I feel like this rejection was out of spite :lol: A friend of mine who already has 2 A*s got rejected from Imperial for Materials but he's got an offer from Oxford :lol:

    Hahaha, well... No comment on that one lol

    I didn't mind until they said reason was my PS wasn't good enough, which means I am now a 2/10 on sad about it scale instead of 1

    The interview is from 1400 to 1615, not really sure what will happen during that time. Doubt they'll just talk for two hours to me
    Oh wow, that's a long interview! Maybe you'll have to do some sort of test? I've never had a job interview!
