erm...im confused...you didnt like my statement?

May be i didnt make myself clear.

Its good that i dont have an offer yet as it would limit my aims. I would only aim to meet the offer just about, when i could be doing better. But, right now, im aiming for the maximum as Im not given a limit (AAB or AAA) and also to secure myself just like you said .

No sorry, one thing I didn't like the fact I have an offer! Sorry, it was me being unclear...and I was agreeing with your statement! Haha. Seriously, having two exams is amazing :p:

you'll get there in the end SG. i just hate all of this waiting - it is driving me crazy. my two best friends have got got interviews and offers from soton and keep reminding me of it. everyone i know has either got an interview or offer and im just so annoyed about the waiting and the blank ucas screen
Blank UCAS is better..just for now...

Whenever i open my ucas (i still check incase my UNsuccessful turns into 'successful'..but i dont think it will say successful..but conditional....just a silly thing), Soton's unsuccessful is like laughing at my face : 'IN YOUR FACE MISSY..' haha... Grrr... I dont go on it anymore. :rolleyes:

I don't know anything about the scottish system. Why is it you have unconditionals? Have you done all your exams and stuff?

We do Highers which are like your AS levels, but a tiny bit harder. UCAS sees 5 Highers at A as the same as 3 A levels at A. So we do our "make or break" exams a year earlier, but they still like us to stay on at school and study Advanced Highers, which are, again, a tiny bit harder than A levels.

It's hard to balance. We get unconditionals, but we are encouraged to keep working as the English students, especially for Medicine, will have more knowledge in Science if we do not take it to Advanced Higher.

SO that's why I dropped Music but am staying on with Chemistry and Biology.

Ah right cool. Thanks for clearing that up

Probably is advised to carry on as it's nice to have something to keep you on top of all the academic stuff. Being on a gap year and having a lack of biology and chemistry lessons is making me forget everything... Hopefully things will be fine should I get a place

Well done on the offers btw

No problem and cheers!

Yeah, I don't want to be starting behind compared to the English students! First years is for fun!

There is something you can clear up for me... :p:


I'm turning 18 in May, and am a normal school leaver. Is turning 18 in May young or old for English students if they are school leavers and heading to university? Just curiosity as opposed to worry.

May is getting towards the younger ones of the year but the youngest are born in August and oldest in September usually.

It's not too bad being young :p:

Braw.

It may seem a weird question, but I have always been told English students are way maturer than Scottish students, yet in the same year.

Or is that just the Scottish/English comparison? :p:
