    Unrelated to your comment but you're applying for Computer Science and but you don't like D1? Or did you just mess up the exam? I'm doing it next term and it looks dreadful!!
    D1 as a subject is beautiful (I've been using its subject matter in my programs for years now), but I took the OCR JAN10 exam, which was bloody dreadful. There was a page-long question (literally one page of nothing but text) on "computers" with 4 numbers in 2 memory banks or something, which was outdated by between two and three decades yet took up nearly half of the marks. The simplex question was also convoluted beyond measure and to answer it without error you would have had to be a robot or some kind of simplex fanatic.

    The syllabus needs bringing up-to-date: Despite knowing the practicalities of D1 inside out I scored 61%, my second-worst mark in any exam ever (worst was C4; 55% is quite a good mark when you take an exam drunk )

    Having said that, most of the syllabus not "related to computing", like Dijkstra's algorithm (why don't they teach A*?),minimum spanning trees, matrix multiplication (or is that FP1?) and inequalities are damn useful, even more so than C4 with its vectors and calculus, in the real world of computing (EDIT: And physics... You'll do a lot of matLAB, which is very numerically-oriented)- i.e. not the one that the mathematicians think still exists.

    Hey everyone..
    I got an offer from Nottingham to do Neuroscience next year.
    They told me to book online at the portal for a post offer open day, i went on there and they said "Bookings available from November" - but it's november already?!?!

    im confused.
    Does anyone have the same problem? or can anyone help? many thx
    I had the same problem, but if you log on today, it should say:

    Bookings not yet available
    We will contact you when the system is available


    Guess we'll have to do a bit of waiting.

    I emailed the Neuroscience department last night and got a reply this morning, they said "I’m sorry for the inconvenience – this is the first year the University have used this particular booking system and they are having a few teething problems. We have been told that you will be sent an email when the form is up and running."

    Hope this helps

    Theology offer - got it a few days after I sent my UCAS form off!

    Either they really want me, or no one applies for theology. I hope it's the former, but I'm willing to concede the latter ^^

    I applied for Architecture on 1st Nov and only have acknowledgement from Nottingham. I have been predicted A*AA and the entry requirements are AAA. On the Architecture Offers Thread, many people say they've gotten their offers from Nottingham about 10 days after their application was sent off.

    Is this a reason to worry?? I am really starting to panic, Nottingham is my first choice

    Seriously don't worry, some offers take months and months to come in, 16 days really isn't long. Nottingham was one of my last offers to come in about three months after I applied. The longer it takes doesn't mean you haven't got an offer or they like you any less. All departments do things differently. Your department might be taking a break from applications because they have other work to do, or maybe they're waiting until all the applications have come in?
