People do apply and get in without having done it for A level. Post-qualification I think everyone with AAA gets an interview. Also, the HAT would prove your competance better than any A level.
Ah now this is an idea. Am I allowed to apply for a university while studying at another? That way I could have a year at Bristol and see what I thought of it; if I decide i'd rather do the ancient history and get a place then I can drop out of bristol

Lol! - why the naked women ???

My ex and her dad were photographers; though to my knowledge neither of them photograph nudes!

My old biology teacher said that they used to brew their own alcohol at uni (couldn't afford it otherwise) - couldn't be worse than tesco's own brand stuff!
The female body is the epitome of beauty, of course!

I still have a long way to go.. :p:

Well, you'd have to start undergrad from scratch. If you're doubting you'll like your chosen course why did you go for it? I think you could apply to another university if you kept it hush hush and cunningly negotiated it through your old school (although it'll seem more than coincidence when you go missing at the time of the HAT and interview, not that they'll guess).

Of course women can think that!! :p:

And yeah, by that I meant I've got a long way to go in terms of photographic skill.

At least you're considered to be performing in any sort of sexual congress.
I suppose that's one way of looking at it, although I do constantly have the threat that my boyfriend will soon be attacked by a personal hit man my dad has. I mean my parents peer out of the curtains when he brings me home, and once they were sat in the car of the car park of a shop watching us as we were at the train station across the road. They think I haven't noticed... :no: You may not be considered to be performing in any sexual congress, but according to my parents I seem to be suspected of being a sex addict who cannot refrain from having sex in public, therefore I need to constantly be watched.


I can beat all though, tomorrow is Saturday. I'm working all day and I am staying in on my complete lonesome eating cheese sandwiches all night.

No problem with starting from scratch. I enjoy science - but i'm not sure if i'll be good enough at it to make me happy. I'm not really happy doing something unless i'm doing well

Sit them down and explain the birds and the bees to them. I remember one of my ex's parents were like that. She once got yelled out for letting me into there house when she was the only person there; we were sitting on the sofa

James McAvoy can take his clothes off for me anytime he likes!! xD

Yeah, I'm going to Nottingham - Viking Studies! Would have been Edinburgh, but I didn't do as well as I'd hoped in my A2s..

Never mind!

Hey I only have a life because I live in a cellar in Weston super Mare - if it weren't for my internet access I could pretend to be austrian.

Now if I apply to Oxford I could apply to Edinburgh as insurance (it was my insurance this year too)....

I am liking this idea...

Nottingham's nice; i'm not personally a campus uni person though

Oh, how I dream of living in a cellar, I live in a damp underground cave amongst thousands of locusts with ultra-slow dial-up Internet access if I'm lucky.

If your heart's not in it why don't you just decline your place, fill a gap year with relevant historical things (maybe excavation) and apply with no hassle?

Because I'd like a year of learning about stuff - it's the career that makes me nervous. Plus i've got until i'm 30 odd

You any idea whereabouts you'll apply?

My parents have been away for 2 weeks. I have done sweet FA except eat, train and troll forums. Now I'm making the house presentable. Well I was, but NOW I'm eating burgers.

Well at the moment it's up in the air because of one bloody English Lit paper. I was told down the phone while I was on holiday that I had AAB (in addition to having already completed an A in History A2 in Year 11) but I get home to find my A in English being a B 221/300 with a D in the Poetry and Prose module (it was no way a D, it was better than all my mocks in which I got high As). My school's adament that it's an A but the results statement says it's a B. There's been a cockup somewhere because the results slip says I got a C in AS ICT when I haven't had an ICT lesson since primary school.

I think I'm putting off my application until after A levels now anyway, it just seems a more pragmatic, reliable and straight-forward method of doing it. I'd be able to include a few AEAs and a YASS course on my UCAS form as well.
