    me!
    Oh thats good :0, how are your AS levels coming along? If you don't mind me asking what was your GCSE profile? Either way, I doubt our results till now matter much, from what I have seen most of the admission is based on MAT...

    University Accommodation:

    In case anyone wanted to get a better idea of the kinds of rooms available at Oxford, I've made a short room tour video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwsyUbd9GCQ.

    I'm a first year at Merton, but having been around a number of friends' rooms in other colleges I can say they aren't exactly the same but of a similar quality, and you might get lucky and get an ensuite!

    If I apply to Oxford instead of Cambridge, I will be applying for Biochemistry, but I guess they're somewhat related

    How are your super curriculars so far?

            I think you deserve a break anyway
            Do something you love, get some good sleep and start afresh again. You'll feel much better

              :console: I remember feeling something similar after the C2 exam, but I told myself that I can't let one exam put me down and cause my other exams to go badly as well. Try to clear your head and remember that it's only one unit out of like 10. You'll be okay, I promise

              Yesterday's weather didn't help either. It was 33 degrees here and the air conditioner on the bus from school was broken and they did't have a window that could be opened lol. It was a living hell and drained all my energy It was a mentally and physically draining day

                When I'm feeling atrociously warm (which is rare given Britain), I like to imagine that I'm walking barefeet on snow It instantly cools me down.

                And I can only imagine, let this day be a nice, cool rest and you can get right back up tomorrow!

                On that bus imagination was impossible. Only thought was hot and swear words :rofl:

                Yeah I hope I can get back to working tomorrow :ahee:
