    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.
    A girl in my year has an offer from Cambridge and she does drama and theatre studies, so I don't think law and sociology will affect your chances much if your predicted grades are up to it.

    Awww, but a car would be more useful in a town like Cambridge than Durham...I'm not even really allowed to take one up there because there's a tiny city centre - more justification for my laziness

    The first time I went for my driving test, the examiner asked me to check the lights. I checked them, only to find that one of them was broken. I got my instructer over as it was his car, he had all sorts of bulbs apart from the one I needed. I didn't even get to start the car or get in it. I was soooooo angry. I had to pay for another test even though it wasn't my car. I passed the next time though,

    Im about to start a Master at Aston Univ. Im an international student and my native lenguage is spanish. Ive had this same nightmare over and over where Im not able to write in english; Its like words woudnt come out of my mind and It sucks cause in the dream I know the answers but I just cant pull them on the paper.

    Ive had some other nightmares related with the dorm room but they arent as frustrating as this one.

    Its cool though just got 2 months before I move the UK so Im sure this nightmares will end (hope so). :rolleyes:

    But you forget I'm a medic. I will be there (assuming I get into the clinical school) till 2009! :eek:

    Re. the cars though; you absolutely cannot have one in Cambridge. Cycling and in some cases walking is quicker and easier.

    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.
    Thats one of the best things ive ever read
