    So, been doing some stalking of last year's thread:
    First notification of interview was on 15 November. First for maths was 18 November.

    If it were the same this year, someone would/might find out in 18 days! Or, in 27 mins, 17 days! :eek4: :eek4: :eek4:
    Oh dear Lord. The thought of interviews truly terrifies me.

    It's fun when you're rowing with a trainee cox who hasn't quite mastered pulling into the bank yet.

    "Two, take a tap."

    ...

    "And another one."

    ...

    "And another one..."

    etc.
    Our tranee cox crashed us into the raft first time, and it wasn't even our raft.. great funs

    :rofl: Sorry, but i don't think anyone's going to be using either of those words anytime soon. I'd settle with 'hilarz'

    Ahh, i have some friends who've gone to Truro College, but i stayed at my sixth form. Considering that Truro is well over an hour away...

    Ergh, it's terribly boring and transport anywhere is like impossible! But i s'pose it's a tad different from Liverpool

    On a worrying note, i've found your Facebook, my stalking powers actually scare me... :lolwut: :rofl:
    Ooooh, I feel all exposed now. You'll have to reveal yourself to me (virtually [Wait, that still sounds dodgy]). Reveal your identity. There we go.

    Yeah, Liverpool's a Big City, though I was in the unenviable position of growing up on the border between Merseyside and Cheshire, just about in the Cheshire part, so the ~5 other people my age spoke with thick Widnes accents and meant Runcorn when they said 'town'...

    D'awww, don't say that! I had that attitude when I first applied and it proved very much wrong.

    And the thing is... you allow yourself to get really sucked into the UCAS thing and it sort of dominates your life for a few months (in some ways it's a useful distraction/shield against A2 final exam stress) but, in actual fact, everyone gets over Oxford. Whether they get in or not, they get over it.

    Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love it here but there are many things I dislike about it, too. And the reasons why I love it are more to do with indisputable facts than the nuances or style of Oxford's practices, i.e. there are more interesting people with drive and talent, people who're just damn smart. And it turns you on. But I did very nearly turn them down and go to UCL instead...
    Noo no i definitely know what you mean. sometimes i get a huge working class chip on my shoulder for the entire concept of oxford in general..

    In a lot of ways i wish i hadnt told anyone i was applying for oggsford because then there's all this expectation built up and if you don't get in it's always gonna be "aw sorry you didn't get into oxford" rather than "well done on getting into edinburgh/etc" (in a lot of ways i'd rather go to edinburgh/st andrews to be honest [although i'm actually less likely to get into edinburgh than oxford statistically apparently])

    although any oxford admissions tutors reading this, i don't mean that and i really wanna go to oxford

    what do you dislike about it, out of interest?

    So it's not all about colouring triangles anymore! :eek:

    Oh dear, I don't even know where that is slash ceebs to google it and pretty sure it's too far North for me to venture. I may just have to settle for a normal Llama

    Okies, :eek: HOW IS THIS THE 10103rd post! We're 103 over the limit already!

    :flybye: night.
    Well the first 2 weeks are basically all the FP3 (edexcel) geometry which is dull for anyone who knows it and probably insanely fast learning for anyone who doesn't. We're currently checking out interesting stuffs about the n-1 dimensional hyperplane

    Middle hun, middle. The southerners think we're northern, the northerners think we're southern. Its a hard life.

    Night night, sleep tight, sweet dreams. and all that jazz.

    Oooh, i have no idea what a thick Widnes accent is meant to sound like, but i love accents, i find them hilarious!

    Aww, well, at least you lived in more industrial areas... all there is here is sheep, fields, beaches, and more fields...

    Ahhhh, well I'm not here to piss on all your bonfires, am I? Besides, here I am, applying to stay here even longer... can't be that bad, can it?

    Without going into too much, or being specific, I'll just say that the experience you have depends very much upon the College you end up at and the group of people you end up studying with. It can be great or you can hate it. Luckily, Uni-level life is an escape from a bad College/personal College environment.
    And, y'know, sometimes you also just hate that everyone around you is so frustratingly talented. Makes you stop, ever so rarely, and question your own self-worth. Plus, the fact that so many others are operating on the same mental level (or almost) as you means you're forever wary of what you say or do and considering people's motivations.
    Oxford had no cerebral rest.

    Just on Greatleysteg's point, you know how you can make the odd (or quite a few in my case) badly thought out points in a normal school and no one picks up on them/ people just assume you're right. That doesn't happen, you actually have to think before speaking quite often.

    And I'd like to add I'm finding it very hard to add anything to the dislike list. I'm really loving it (only been like 5 weeks so I've not had long to start hating but yknow..good first impression and all that)
