    Nice :-) I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to socialise with students from other colleges. Despite the nerves, are you excited?

    I am going to St John's.
    Yeah definitely excited! How are you going to prepare? I haven't touched any maths since STEP and I don't know if they give us anything to do before we get there.

    Freshers' Guide said there was one but couldn't find it. I'm sure there will be one soon though There is a freshers' group for the whole of the uni and I'm assuming they'll link to the Caius one when it's up Congrats to you too!! I can't wait until we get to move in and start :0

    Sorry, it didn't tell me you had replied.

    I believe they send us a workbook of simple questions to make sure we know everything we need to. Also there is this. I'll just do the workbook if they send it and the latter set of questions. Other than that I've just been doing the odd maths question here and there.

    Don't worry, I'm pretty scared that I'll be sitting in my room 24-7 crying over words I don't understand. It's a common feeling and remember that pretty much everyone is on the same boat.

    Congrats for making it!
    Not everyone, I know tons of words.
    Apparently there is Stationary and stationery. Crazy ****. Just crazy.
    Can i change to english.

    We both know they don't give a toss about A-Levels. You're probably getting paired with the IMO-er/Strangebanana/Samira I wonder whether there'll be normal 11-ers like me at King's this year. :lol:
