    Economics is the one thats going to get me. Anyone have an particularly hated/feared exams coming up?
    its history for me
    my problem is that i dont enjoy it any more, i can't wait to drop it, so i've got no motivation....
    plus we have got an new teacher...who tries hard, but he just isn't up to the job, (and to be fair, he lost all his notes in the fire)
    so, i really dont feel confident about that exam.
    oh well...i will try

    Arrrgh!

    The 2 + 2 = 5 rules of comic referencing

    Good:
    The Office
    I'm Alan Partridge
    Seinfeld


    Bad:
    The Catherine Tate Show
    Little Britain

    &c.

    Only quote the good ones, 'cos the bad ones just aren't funny.

    :p:

    You joke, surely? That's the bit we do no work for! Easy! :p:

    (Speaking as a WJEC candidate, mind. God knows how little faith they have in our English papers, if they feel they have to send them to the Welsh to be marked.)
    Something to be said for that - however, I'm still bricking it. Imagine getting the completely wrong end of the stick!!! I tend to try and over-intellectualize stuff - slight prob sometimes.

    Plus, I don't trust examiners!!!

    Just examples I gave, sir. But I agree entirely.

    (Except if they quote Python in that "Look at me, I'm eccentric!" way. That annoys me.)

    I wholeheartedly agree - at that stage it becomes somewhat superficial and forced....hmm, in fact, "I'd like to register a complaint": Python quoting should be purely spontaneous...

    This thread disappoints me.

    When I first saw it I thought it would be devoted to some of the crazy things prospective Oxonians are going to do when they make their offer.
    E.g. Dance around in their underwear amongst their sixth-form friends on results day, singing verse after verse of 'I'D RATHER BE A LEPER THAN A TAB!!!!'.

    Never mind....

    Best song........ever! Varsity football at Craven Cottage before the boat race called for multiple chants of it. (and boat race party afterwards!) There's also a song which says that you'd rather be at Cambridge than at Catz - is this to say that you'd rater be a leper than at Catz?! It may look rather like a carpark but this seems harsh! Surely we Oxonians should be sticking together! :p:

    Haha I heard so many variations of that at Doxbridge it was unbelievable
    We'd start off with about 20 different anti-college chants going
    And then all of Oxford would join up so it became rather leper tab
    And then it just ended up Oxbridge vs Durham with things like Have you got a UCAS point and your Dad works for my Dad etc
    Wonderful!
