    I guess now I will be the Graduate though. A good excuse to play Simon and Garfunkel

    Hopefully if I am with my friends it won't be so bad. We will probably just start talking half way through it (we are not that rude though ).

    Falling over is what I am best at So its going to be hard not to in the wearing that crappy stuff in the mad heat.

    Just hope it isn't too hot! Just think how much fun you'll have with an hour of solid clapping, speeches, 'life-advice', robes, pointy hats, official charters and procedures, AND 30°C!

    Oh my..let's hope they have the air-con turned on in 4 years time!

    Thanks I have got a 2:1, I have also found out today that only 25 out of the original 96 will be graduating due to the fact 24 students have been done for cheating.

    Jim it should be fully air conditoned as its at the Lowry in Salford, its a newish venue and its very high profile.

    You'll be sat in the order you're going to be called up in (probably alphabetical) Seriously, don't talk though, give everyone the sort of curtesy you expect yourself. You wouldn't like it if everyone was talking during your big moment :p:

    No just 25 from my course, there will be a lot more from other science courses graduating. 24 students decided to use this website which automaticaly calcualted the huffman code and entity for a message. It was fairly complex, we were all panicing about it, but 24 decided to cheat.

    Also some students joined later on, so I reckon 40 people will be graduating from my course. Still its very depressing.

    Normaly you would be chucked out for good for that but becuase so many people did the same thing they decided to give them the option of resitting it.

    PS Ditzy I know I was only joking, I will not be talking during the thing.
