    up to you... I see you as a mathematician/scientist... But still, if you're going to the Pembroke one I'll see you there! (I chose it based on the pros and cons on the wiki and my personal preferences, and it's during one of my holidays so...)



    Year 10 and you already know which college you want to go to? That's a bit early imo...
    Yeah well im a bit early. Do you think theyd have a problem with it?

    I'd email them. But depending on how competitive the bookings are, it might be best you don't go so another Y12 person can go instead...

    How many heads would turn if a year 10 decided to go? Considering I want to do Pembroke Science?

    I don't even believe this. Night before physics coursework presentation and the file with the ppt/script has been corrupted.

    Kind of stuck now.

    Well, I was helping a friend with her maths homework and that quadratic came up, and in the textbook there are quadratic equations that go to 3 SF so...

    Edit: Booked Pembroke College open day 17/04 (Science) if anyone wants to come and meet up?
    At least in my textbook (OCR), the C1 exercises may require calculators, even if you wouldn't actually get questions requiring them (although with quadratics, leaving answers in fractional form is fine).

    Might come to Pembroke...

    Been told that a few years ago a very good IB Natural Scientist from my school got rejected, without even an interview. People from my school have only ever got into Pembroke for English. But times are changing, I think I can match their standard offer and write a killer PS. My teachers have also told me that their reference of me will be 'glowing' so, fingers crossed.

    Your PS needs to be a work of art.

    I know that and I think I can pull it off. Well, I need to see what the rough standards are first anyway.

    I have no idea how to write a PS, although once I find out I have no doubts I'll be able to nail it

    "4000 characters, or 47 lines, whichever comes first. Times New Roman size 12." We had a brief talk about it today
