    I'm nervous as well but I'm up for the challenge of meeting new people despite my shyness . What societies/sports clubs are you gonna join? I'm probably gonna join the Harry Potter one and possibly the eSports one. I just wish there was a chess club though
    I have no idea what societies I'll join yet, I don't think I'll be joining any sports clubs though haha

    I know there's a Freshers chat on Facebook already but I think we should start our own TSR one, especially as the other one will probably get full

    Add me on FB (Johnny English) and I'll get one started 👍

    I didn't do great in mine either. Mine was focused around the Irish Potato Famine. I put so much effort in it but I just couldn't evaluate properly and I was describing too much. I even got help from a tutor but I just didn't improve much. I'd written my third draft and I decided that was the best I could do and I sent it off. I think at this point, I placed myself in clearing because I knew beforehand, how bad my coursework was

    My referencing was really good though, like pristine. I got a book about how to write first class essays for uni because I was so determined to get my referencing right. I reckon, if the whole essay was marked on my referencing skills, I'd have gotten an A* in that coursework, but the rest of it was utter crap, so I came out with an E grade

    I wasn't that great at referencing, I got a C in the coursework, & at the time that was so annoying as it put more pressure on the exam! (my offer was BBB)

    Was Essex your firm?I struggled during the history exam. The way they worded some of the questions was confusing. It seemed intentional because I'm sure they could've written the questions in a more straight forward way. Sometimes I wonder whether those examiners are out to get us

    Yeah, Essex was my firm. I managed an A in the exam (have no idea how) which pushed me up to the B I needed. What topic was your exam on? Mine was on the American civil war.
    Yeah, same with mine! some of the questions were phrased really awkwardly & it made it unnecessarily confusing
