    Is it necessary to pre-order train tickets in the UK if I need to go from Newcastle Airport to Durham and back, or should it not be a problem to buy tickets when there (and do they sell tickets on the train, or on the station only)?
    No, you don't need to buy the tickets in advance.

    You'll need to get a Metro (Newcastle's underground rail system) from the airport to Newcastle Central Station, the journey will take about 25 minutes, you must get your ticket from a machine before getting on the Metro. (It will cost about £3 single, or you can get a day return, cost varies depending on time of travel)

    Then, when you get to Central Station you change from the Metro system, up some stairs to the proper railway station, where you have to get your ticket before you get on the train. There is a big ticket office, or you can use a machine. The electronic departures board will tell you which platform to go to. The journey from Newcastle to Durham takes about 15 minutes. (Costs about £5/£6 depending on what time you go, for a single ticket.)

    There. I should get a job at British Rail. If it still existed.

    Haha! I guess I'll maybe see you some time then. (and I also figured asking before checking the wiki article is a bad habit. It definitely raised my impression - I guess I just didn't like the sound of the name at first )

    Does that mean that they take more people from private schools? (probably uncited wiki rumours, but that's all I have to go on for now )

    Thanks.

    Edit:
    PS: Just noticed Hild Bede doesn't run gowned formals (oh noes! ), so I'd like to know how much black tie costs in the UK (Wikipedia didn't tell me ;p)?
    Thanks!

    Haha, that's okay!

    I'm looking into what travel plan would be most efficient for me at the moment (cause I need to book flights). The train network in the UK seems to be good, so I might drop by London before the open day, not sure yet. Also, my travel insurance seems to be expiring tomorrow, so I need to get a new one of those as well ^_^

    Hopefully it's all taken care of by tomorrow

    Thank you so much! I'm not sure yet but I applied for Castle hehe which is ultimately the equivalent to an open application. I applied two days ago through UCAS Extra, so it's unbelievable how swiftly everything went!

    Haha bless our wallowing ways :rolleyes:

    Unsure, I got an offer from UCL which hasn't be confirmed yet but probably will be A*AA. I think I prefer UCL to Durham (haven't visited Durham yet) but that A* is rather ominous so I'll see how Jan results go.

    What about you?

    I haven't been assigned there, but I've visited Collingwood before coz my friends are there, and its a lovely place. Really chilled out, its known as the relaxed college. Its good for sport, and has a nice vibe. Everyone who I met there was awesome. It's on the hill, so its quite a walk into the centre of town, but nothing anyone can't handle. All in all, its a really good college to go to
