    Jimmy Carr, definitely. Don't care much for Frankie Boyle.
    I'm going to see Jimmy Carr live next year in April.

    Threads in Applications and UCAS don't tend to be very strange, but they can be awfully repetitive. A simple search would easily find the answer, if the answer isn't already in the stickies or articles, which it usually is.

    I'm sometimes finding that in Student Financial Support. Peoples' situations really aren't unique (or important) as they make them out to be.

    That is very, very true. When I'm feeling kind, I presume it's because they are in such a panic that they can't focus on looking at the thread titles.

    Too hard to choose! How about you?

    Hi!
    How did you cope with GCSE's?
    How long have you been in the support team for?
    I know they probably feel hard when you're doing them, but they're honestly not that bad, especially when you get to A-level. You'll realise that it wasn't really anything to worry about, easy compared to a-levels. Do try your best but also remember to relax too and make the most of being that age and in school etc, try to enjoy it, it'll be the only break before things really get hard. (sorry if I've scared you now )

    So I've got the clever clogs badge and chatterbox one... Which I know how it works.How do you earn the hero one?
    You'd have to be the first reply to a thread that hasn't been answered yet, and then the Original Poster has to rep that post. It's explained in more detail here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...are-TSR-badges

    (Original post by Tiger Rag)
    If you weren't on the ST, how else would you be wasting spending your days?
    I'd still be on TSR, probably post more. If I weren't on the site, I'd probably read more books, did a lot of that before I found TSR.

    It's all about what you want to study for me first of all - especially if you're studying it for 3 years and paying £27000 minimum for the priviledge
    I think you read the question too fast.

    I can only speak for myself but it took 6 months of doing constant PSV replies for me to be considered to be a ST member for mental health and so I'd say 6 months of real activity, helpful posts, not rule breaking is generally a good starting point

    The section is completely up to you really Also given the ST's main role is 'content creation' - making helpful/engaging threads in the section you'd like to support in the long run wouldn't harm your cause too

    Ah okay cos I heard certain sections like Chat are already full of ST members so not many more are needed therefore lowering your chance of being accepted... is that true? If so which sections are undersubscibed?

    Alright i'll try shouldnt be a problem (inb4 i get carded today :lol:)
