    Hello Year 13 thread

    I discovered someone from my school on here after they posted a pic of their results day slip on the GCSE chat thread (it had the school logo on there)
    Pudding brain! :woo:

    I'm dreading it. Only thing which may be positive is seeing all the new people on the bus and laughing at how happy they are to start college. That'll soon change.

    With personal statements, do you mention how all the skills you've gained are useful on your degree? Like, if I talk about how something has given me time-management skills, do I go on to say how those time management skills will help me on the course? Or do I just leave it? Because when I had a meeting with my head of sixth form about my ps, he seemed a bit iffy about the bits where I'd done that, but I've heard you need to link everything to your chosen course.

    I wouldn't

    They'd have to be stupid to not see the links

    If you were to compare 'MIT uni' & 'Caltech uni' in America what would their equivalent university be in the UK?
    ^ would they be oxbridge?

    Hey guys some help please. So basically the only Russell group uni that does my course is Durham university, at the queens campus, in Stockton. Does anyone know anything about this campus or Stockton in General, and would you say it's worth moving all the way from London to go there? Thanks

    I used to live in Stockton, just 10 minutes down the road from the campus. It'll be a big difference from London, although it depends where in London you're from I suppose. Like much of Teesside it has a bad reputation but to be honest, it really isn't that bad. Sure there are bad parts like in any town, but the campus is on the south side of the river which is the nicer one in my opinion, plus it's quite self contained. Any more questions about the surrounding area I'm happy to answer, hope that helps

    Thanks, I'm from south London so it's quite rich ( but I'm use to rough areas, all of my family live in sheffield!). I'm worried that I would be too bored. I've only ever lived in london so I don't want TOO much of a culture shock, but I'm willing to adapt. Is there a lot to do in Stockton? Sorry for too many questions!

    It'll be a big change from London mainly for the size aspect, if nothing else. It is a bit rough, but only in certain areas and the part where the campus is based definitely isn't one of them. As for things to do, it's no cultural hotspot but for nights out all of Teesside is pretty good, plus if you like water sports then you're in the right place. My advice would simply be to have a lookaround the campus and surrounding area and then make your mind up
