Oxbridge myths!! Watch
Poor you - that must be awful. Are you a graduate student???
a quote from the Newnham alternative prospectus, I always wondered why such random thing was included in the list of reasons to go there! I would love to have a cat near by!!
however I think we need a replacement college cat since I never see Scipio...
when the incident occured it was on the front page of Varsity I think, lots of jokes were made at Clare comedy when somebody from tit hall who was there at the time was doing standup.
I really don't know much about Cambridge, only the course I applied for and the college...
I got lost after my interviews, I decided to go christmas shopping...I was so ashamed, its such as small place & I didn't really wander too far away from anywhere! I ended up ringing my mum (in Wales) who suggested I ring the college & explain where I am and ask for directions back, I didn't, thought it might ruin the whole supposed to have at least slight intellengence to be there!
You'll soon memorise it.
God yeah the disorientation, I went into the town hall type place all pissed off and demanded to know where a cybercafe was. And the prices of things, jeez :| serves me right for not bothering to find anywhere else than pret.
There's one between barclays and ryder and amies right next to great st mary's church...
congratulations to your offer...did you have an interview with Mr. Partington (because he is really nice)?
i'm bored of discussing 'who got in?' 'how did you get in' type questions. does anyone any stories of anyone who's had a real weird, strange interview. ie: asked to chuk a chair out of the window?!?!?
At cambridge it took me 3/4 of an hour to work out that there was another tutor sitting in the corner right behind me. He didnt say anything and then suddenly asked a question. I jumped up and knocked my chair over very embarrassing.
At oxford I was half way through when i realised id taken my shoe off and that it had got stuck under the sofa. At the end i had to go down on my knees and fish it out and as i stood up i knocked over a flip chart.
Guess im in the quite rare situation of having been interviewed at oxford and cambridge and both were pretty weird.
Thank you, i did have an interview with Mr. Partington, ur right he is very nice!!
by the way, have you ever been to the crown court in chelmsford? I went there and saw a murder trial for my work experience, twas well exciting...
He threw it back and told the interviewer to peel it first!
He got in!
Waiting for my interview in a room with just me & a law applicant, the law interviewer came in to 'collect' the girl and looked down at an unfinished jig saw on the table and said "not finished that then, I'm sorry we can't accept you!". Obviously she was joking but the girl looked terrified and the interviewer laughed & apologised! Cruel but it lowered the stress levels!
Lol! My tutor graffiti-ed the sign outside his door: "All interviews will be conducted in Latin". Wicked, wicked
