I must admit that Pinky and the Brain kick major butt. I also love Dexter's laboratory. Is anyone here doing History as well? Any recommendations for first year modules? Help!

I could have sworn I heard the no clearing vacancies thing too but it said on the Durham homepage that they had some vacancies for Isle of Man and Channel Island students only,wtf.

That's one of the most cynical statements I've ever heard. Love it.

Well, it might be a thing to do with the amount of international students they were expecting not equating to the amount that made their offers.

Sorry! Yeah im from the channel islands, thats why! We have to pay ridiculous fees. Even though were not international... grrr. Its not cynical, its damn true. Thats probably the only reason i got in. :p:

I dont mind! I didnt get into St Andrews. I just missed the grades, but they were completely full. I was told about vacancies for I.O.M and C.I students at Durham so i kind of went for it on a whim and im more than glad that i did.

I dont think they do have a quota for international and overseas students, thats why they get in so easily. A friend of mine had an offer for BBB but got CDD and still got into their first choice. (completely unfair tbh) Its all about the money!

The channel islands aren't part of the UK, right?

Ah, as always, Mr. Wikipedia has the answer.

The Channel Islands fall into two separate self-governing Bailiwicks. Both the Bailiwick of Guernsey and the Bailiwick of Jersey are British crown dependencies, but neither is part of the United Kingdom.
