    I don't believe this, I'm becoming so obsessed with UCAS offers (or the lack of) that they're invading my dreams. Last night I dreamt that Durham gave me an offer that I could start my course when I was 33 years old after having lots of gap years, because I didn't have enough experience to handle the course at degree level. Eugh, maybe I feel too immature for university or something.

    Wow is that what applying to uni is like.

    When I was in 6th form I didnt bother because I just wanted a job. A year later, bored of office work, I casually turned up 2 weeks before term started and asked if I could have a go - they said yes

    Most people will be experiencing troublesome times between this very nerve-racking gap period between end of exams and results day, its perfectly normal. I remember having a week of pure worry and doubt, barly ate, slept etc (rents were also on holiday so i was alone in my house).

    You'll get over it no probs though, just try to relax and do things to take your mind of it all.

    Thanks for that, and UKL is effective for taking my mind off results day - as long as I avoid the academic/university section

    Ouch It turned out alright for me in the end - I got 6/6 offers, now I just have to meet the highest one.
    Lol at least your sister tried - I can't be bothered getting proper lessons, there's much more fun things I could be doing with my time *ponders*

    Wow - a few of my friends were equally unlucky and I feel really sorry for them What course/unis was she applying for?
    And the very best people pass their driving test 3rd time anyway!

    Well my sister got A,B,B that's why, so she's retaking loads of stuff to try and get at least A,A,B. I'm going to Cambridge when i'm older though!

    My sister has been unlucky to be fair, on test one she only had 7 minors but one major and so failed, the second time she was failed for going 2mph too fast at one point, she's trying again on Thursday and is getting nervous, my mockery isn't really helping.

    Oh and if you think talking to me on UKL is more important then learning to drive i'm worried about you, very worried.

    I don't know all of them, a couple are York and Exeter...i really don't care much so long as she goes to one that's far from Bath.

    I think she'll pass her driving test on Thursday, i might even muster a good luck before it.

    I need AAB for Durham, thank god I wasn't posting much here during my exams.
    That's a naive assumption, I didn't even mention UKL before I'm putting driving off until after uni when I might be able to afford the lessons.

    Clever girl, maybe if i want to go to Cambridge i should do maths and advanced maths instead of law and sociology, hmmmm, i might just go to a different uni, i hate maths.

    I think that when school starts i'll have to start worrying about how much time i spend on UKL, my posting may rapidly decrease, work comes first. *Geeky smilie*

    My daddy says i need to learn how to drive as soon as i turn 17 because it's very important, though i don't like the idea of driving in a years time.
