    Agreed. The soft caps are also decidedly homosexual.

    heh. I was joking. They do look odd, though. And the difference between caps and mortar boards is that you can wear caps before you graduate. You can't wear boards.

    Thanks. I wouldn't want to give such an impression :p:
    Nevertheless, I wish that I had bought the board instead.

    :eek:

    i think our finals are off in summertown.. after 2 sets of being spoiled by exams in Schools, i'm not thrilled about this prospect :mad: & strongly considering walking in trainers & changing into heels!

    my carnation mantainance potentially reaches obsessive levels though! my 'husband', bless him, isn't the most organised of people - so although he always buys me some - tends not to know exactly when the exams are, so i get them ~1-2 weeks in advance. & it then becomes a regime of plant food, fresh water daily, careful positioning in optimal sunlight position, gradual trimming of stem to optimise xylem & phloem contacts..

    OUSU do a deal which'll be sent to you with your freshers' pack. £35, then you just pick it up when you get to Oxford.
    They do? They haven't sent me anything...

    Why? They're just about the most useless pieces of kit in the world outside Oxford. If I were a fresher again, I probably wouldn't buy one at all, but wait till I came up, find someone who got a distinction in their first year exams and buy/borrow theirs for matriculation. As scholars, they'll get fancy scholar's gowns and won't need their commoner's one.
    Hmm. I assume you got a distinction. Should that be interpreted as an open offer?

    If you do get a distinction do you have to get a scholar's gown, or can you just carry on using your old one? Do you have to be officially told you're entitled to one or what?
