    Just thought I'd post cynthialf's awesome-job list of Facebook groups for 2011 Freshers, in case anyone's missed it. All credit to cynthialf.

    (Original post by cynthialf)
    Ooh my list! And if anyone has something to add (a college/subject group) please PM or post it

    Updated the list.

    It's perhaps a bit hidden on page x, might be worth a sticky/new thread maybe?

    All kudos to cynthialf!
    I would prefer it not to be a separate thread and it's not really sticky material, but I'm happy to edit it into the first post of this thread for you

    Totally agree, I'm happy to let a mod decide. Cynthialf's list is just really useful, and might get lost on page 77.
    I agree, so I'll edit it into the first post I'm subscribed to this thread so if further links come up I'll put them in.

    Edit: Done. Perhaps best to just quote me if you want anything adding, or ask BeritV to edit the post. I'm moving home from Russia in a couple of days so I don't want to miss anything in the chaos!

    I miss our closed thread already and so I had to make this thread.

    Discuss anything at all, just like we did in our previous thread.

    - if there are any mistakes here, let me know, please. Also, if you want to be included in the list and you do not have your college and subject info in your signature, include this info in your post here :-)

    I have an offer for Maths & Philosophy at Merton. I was doing one of those lists for the Liverpool people; they get to be such a pain after a while. :p:

    Go to your 'Groups' view (either from the left sidebar, or by typing 'Groups' into the search box), then click on the button to create a new group (I have Facebook in German at the moment, so I don't know the precise wording). Find a picture, write a description, add anyone you know already and mention it to TSR.

    If you're worried about your GCSEs, try browsing this thread http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=573746 - there are plenty of examples of the range of GCSE results held by successful applicants in there

    Just a heads up!
    Anybody with an offer to study Biomedical Sciences or Biochemistry are being sent a 'Pre-course Maths Booklet'.
    By sent, I really mean.. sent an email with a URL and instructions to download the booklet.
    I'm guessing most will be getting the email in the coming days, unless you've already received it!
    P.S. I'm having a bit of trouble actually viewing the booklet though.. Does anybody else have the same problem?

    Here is a copy of the math course booklet for biochem and biomed. I doubt it has changed much, and these are subjects you are expected to know upon your arrival to Oxford.

    Cheers!

    Yeah, the link in the pdf doesn't go to the url shown and if you type the url into the address bar it only seems to work if you change the http to https, and even then when I log in the download link just takes me back to the login page.

    Hiya,

    I'm hoping to go to Lincoln to study English this October. I am incredibly excited. Bit of a radio silence from Lincoln though, I've not had any information sent to me since my offer letter. Does anyone else think that now we are doing exams and can count down our papers that it is becoming more and more real that we actually have offers?! I think it's incredible. I've got four more papers to sit, then all I can do is hope.

    I'd better get back to revision now. I'm so easily distracted. But I seriously do not want to mess this up. If I miss this chance...

    Ah, I have it now! I emailed the contact they gave in the pdf and they suggested using this link instead..
    https://learntech.imsu.ox.ac.uk/mathsworkbook/
    This one worked for me, but as far as I can see the booklet is exactly the same as the one posted by mapontikos anyway.
    Thanks for the help though!

    I have also been very pleasantly surprised Potential mature applicants in particular should be better acquainted with it, I'm sure that more would apply.
