Yeah I know, I just don't want them to get suspicious because they know we're all on half term! :lol: I over-think things but I might do it on Monday possibly horray! Have you decided on your last choice yet?
Ah I see Yeah, go for it on Monday, I doubt they'll look up your school and see you haven't gone back...

How come you get two weeks of half term though?!

I wonder if less people will be applying this year to Oxford due to the tuition hike. It would be interesting to see since there seems to be such a large spike in applicants in the previous years.

I think it probably wouldn't be so instant though? The people who were doing A-levels before the hike will be applying these next few years so I would think the drop would happen in 2014? (if there were any drop at all).


I am just going through all the different scenarios in my head to see if I can actually gauge my chance of an interview, let alone an offer. Sob.

:lol: BUT WHAT IT THEY DO :O !

Erm because

my teachers are lazy
my school is awesome
we're private and I think most London private ones have two weeks, so we supposedly have on week of "work" and another of "holiday" and there always seems to be school trips during this time :party:

What's your EPQ on? I bet it's something mathsy/computery

I had Blackfriars, St Benet's Hall and Regent's Park as my options.. thinking I'll opt out of the first two, I'm not male or religious
Do you need to opt out of St Benet's hall if you're a girl? I kind of just assumed that they wouldn't assign me there, so I didn't bother :/

It's been on the news that there are 9% fewer uni applicants now than there were this time last year. So that includes all oxbridge, medics and dentists and those applying early just for the sake of it!

Why is this thread so much nicer than the FB group? I'm always slightly too intimidated to post on there because I think someone's going to attack me for it :lol:
:lol: Cos this thread isn't full of philosophical rubbish, instead it's all :party: :woo: :woo:

There are no single sex colleges but St Benets is an all male PPH I'm afraid.

Somerville was originally women only, hence Maggie T going there it opened to men in the 80s or something.

I know! And such an unfair advantage the boys will have if we end up in the group of maybe applicants being considered by PPHs!
