    I hate the feeling after your exams wondering whether you did well or not :aff:
    I hate the fact that you feel less ad less confident as time goes on That's why I write predictions of how I think it went the day I have done it so I can look back and reassure myself (It never works )

    Oddly enough, it's the 12 marker on the economics paper that I'm not so sure about. I could get an A overall at AS with a B, but I worked my arse off so I could get an A

    Remember they'll be more impressed by you fully understanding a more basic theory than you trying to struggle your way through the hardest book you can find
    I suppose so can you recommend any books ?

    There are lots of good books out there that can be related to your interests. I don't really want to give a specific list on this thread because it basically reveals my personal statement to the competition

    cheers ! i know - i tried to read the general theory and gave up after the first few chapters :| hopefully i can give it another go
    Don't think General Theory is the best book for you to read really. There are others which will provide much more information and offer more to discuss. Reading General Theory also seems very contrived.

    On another note- emails sent, I'll post the reply's when I get them.

    Said something about rise in Imports, I read the extract and said that it was impacting supply through increase in prices. But I originally wrote that AD would shift outwards.. I crossed it out and wrote out the supply bit, but ack.. I'm not too sure

    Did you do the supply side question?

    If it was then the correct thing to do was shift SRAS left

    It is the right thing to do, I'm 95% sure

    Indeed, I'm trying to stop worrying too, can't change it now!

    Piano's pretty fun, but with any instrument, it's only fun if you know how to play it

    What games do you normally play on the xbox?

    It's definitely something you can only enjoy and prosper at if you are naturally talented in that area.

    It varies a lot, I don't really go on it that much, just when I'm bored

    Yeah I think I'm pretty talented at Fifa, not sure what the university will think of that haha
    Which reminds me, how long until we actually send off our PS's? Don't we send them off around November time?

    Might be an interesting angle for the personal statement there, just hope the admissions tutor is a fan of your chosen club

    Well the Oxbridge deadline is 15th October so I personally will be submitting my UCAS form before then, but I think applications to all other universities (for economics) can be submitted as late as ~10th January I think? It's probably better to get it in early, though. Just so you can get considered quicker and start making plans as the offers/rejections come through!

    Understandably, you're applying to Cambridge right?

    And hopefully a fellow Blues supporter

    Just started my personal statement! 1446 characters so far and I have barely said anything compared to what I want - this could be tricky. :eek:
