    A spokesman for Google said: "We thought you were pulling the udder one when we herd the moos, but it's clear that our automatic face-blurring technology has been a little overzealous.

    God, I love Google.
    :lol:

    Was thinking of asking you how your little brother's doing.
    Is he toddling around now? How does he call you?

    I'm trying to look up how to structure essays in written exams at Cambridge. Every resource I find seems to be for typed essays that say you should include a bibliography, references, thesis, etc. As far as I know, for my subject (Land economy) we just do written timed exams.

    Do you still need to include this type of stuff for even written exams? Or are they like A-level essays where you just have an introduction, arguments and conclusion?

    There's a box in lower part of the page where you can ask a question to current students.

    Depends on the course. Most use lecture notes though. Most people also take their own notes, even if lecture notes are available. Use those + past papers + revision supervisions to revise.

    Some lecturers hand out lecture notes.Textbook, very rarely.
    It'd all depend on courses/papers and individual lecturer, though.

    check this site, it's full of really good info and link to page you can ask current students & facebook/twitter page for each course, also run by current students and the department.

    And this.

    Just to add.....

    Your JCR will try to match you with college parents who are in the best (as they can) position to support you, so one of them is likely to be on the same or a similar course to yours.
    So you can ask them these questions, too, when you meet them....or if they have already contacted you, you can ask them now. That's they're there for.

    Aww, I thought he was going to be an annoying teenage brother she might claim to be glad to leave.

    She's going to have to fire up Skype often, and maybe she will be lucky enough to get a visit.
