    Please read the poem below:

    IF you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;
    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
    Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
    And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
    If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;
    If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    ' Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
    if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
    Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
    And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

    Rudyard Kipling


    Sometimes we all have to have the courage to stand up to those we disagree with. Even if they are our parents. I'm not suggesting you don't work hard and don't go to Oxbridge....but if you don't then you will be fine if you are secure in your own achievements.

    Half a league, half a league,
    Half a league onward,
    All in the valley of Death
    Rode the six hundred.
    "Forward, the Light Brigade!
    "Charge for the guns!" he said:
    Into the valley of Death
    Rode the six hundred.

    2.

    "Forward, the Light Brigade!"
    Was there a man dismay'd?
    Not tho' the soldier knew
    Someone had blunder'd:
    Theirs not to make reply,
    Theirs not to reason why,
    Theirs but to do and die:
    Into the valley of Death
    Rode the six hundred.

    3.

    Cannon to right of them,
    Cannon to left of them,
    Cannon in front of them
    Volley'd and thunder'd;
    Storm'd at with shot and shell,
    Boldly they rode and well,
    Into the jaws of Death,
    Into the mouth of Hell
    Rode the six hundred.

    4.

    Flash'd all their sabres bare,
    Flash'd as they turn'd in air,
    Sabring the gunners there,
    Charging an army, while
    All the world wonder'd:
    Plunged in the battery-smoke
    Right thro' the line they broke;
    Cossack and Russian
    Reel'd from the sabre stroke
    Shatter'd and sunder'd.
    Then they rode back, but not
    Not the six hundred.

    5.

    Cannon to right of them,
    Cannon to left of them,
    Cannon behind them
    Volley'd and thunder'd;
    Storm'd at with shot and shell,
    While horse and hero fell,
    They that had fought so well
    Came thro' the jaws of Death
    Back from the mouth of Hell,
    All that was left of them,
    Left of six hundred.

    6.

    When can their glory fade?
    O the wild charge they made!
    All the world wondered.
    Honor the charge they made,
    Honor the Light Brigade,
    Noble six hundred.

    I'm with AQA. The unit 1 we're doing (the one I'm revising the most) is Women in Athens and Rome. Unit 2 is The Odyssey.

    Which units are you doing?

    I was decieved when I took it that it would be as interesting as history.
    Ah yep I did those two units last year (I'm in year 13). This year we're doing the Persian Wars and Tiberius and Claudius. I have to say I enjoyed the year 12 topics a lot more than the year 13 ones.

    For a person who knows nothing about medicine / medical eduation / how the system works - if you tell them that you went to Keele and that your friend went to Cambridge, who would they think had a better education / was a "better doctor"?
    I hear that the foundation year selectors speak directly to your friends when determining how good a doctor you are. srs

    Surely they'd be biased towards you and thus it would make life a lot more difficult for the employers?

    Depends whether or not they were doctors going for the same position.. so maybe thats the real test - ask other wanna be docs and if they say rubbish about you then their opinion of them decreases

    .... ok im now confused with what i'm saying... probably easiest to ignore that - to much revision on the mind for one day :rolleyes:

    LOL + I guess they could lie and say bad stuff if they're applying for that same post at the same hospital, so that they could get a position there instead
