    Trump got what was coming, he better not turn into the snooker version of Andy Murray: Talented yet completely incapable of winning anything.

    He did win the China one earlier this year

    Tbh - he deserved to win, he was playing so good

    John Higgins just luckily had a few chances, e.g. when Judd either mi**** something or the cue ball went into a pocket

    John was very lucky :king1:

    EDIT: LOL - I wanted to say "mis hit" (one word) and they thought it was "sh*t"

    Yes and Andy Murray has also won lots of non-majors. If you don't win the UK, Grand Prix, Masters or the word then you are a nobody in snooker terms

    Don't get me wrong, I'm sure he will win one day. Higgins won more frames....maybe not quite spectacularly...but he won them none the less

    Oh cool
    I'm thinking about Barts, Peninsula, Cardiff, Newcastle, Kings, Bristol and possibly cambridge.
    Yeah, we have quite a few in common, Peninsula (Exeter), Kings, Nexcastle and Bristol

    Cool cambridge, does that depend if your teacher predicts you an A* then or your just not sure about the course?

    I'm definitely not applying to any London Universities.

    Newcastle, Leeds, Leicester.. for me..

    What are your preferences for uni?

    Campus based? Course format?
    Wow, how come no Lodon universities? Most of my choices are just whether I would enjoy living at the university as well as studying there. But I do think about course structure that's why i'm really not sure about UCL They said on their site basically that for you to pass the whole year you need to pass all of the exams and you can only fail a year I think once, I can't remember exactly what I read but it did scare me.

    Yeah, that's true apparently - if you fail one test, you have to resit the whole lot, and if you fail once again during the whole course, you get kicked out :eek: :cry:

    Anyone here want to do pathology? :ninjagirl:
    most people I talk to want to do paediatrics or surgery stuff, and I seem to be the weird one
    I quite fancy pathology - histo or heamatology.
    When I worked in an immunology lab, the immunologist spent more time with patients than in the lab - about 80% I'd say, she ran lots of clinics and had good relationships with her patients as they had long lasting conditions, and she got to deal with every stage of the diagnosis/ treatment which I thought seemed like something I'd enjoy (ie/ she met with them, decided on the tests they needed, sometimes ran the tests - {although very very occasionally to be fair} and then decided on treatment)

    So yeah we'll be weird together

    No, not really. I think everyone deserves a second chance, I mean sometimes life gets on top of you and you need the right to resit but if you fail an exam 3 times then maybe the course isn't for you

    There are some people in my year who have failed every single exam so far They have to resit the January ones whilst trying to revise for these May ones, 8 exams rather than 4 does not sound fun

    Ouch!

    So if they fail these ones as well, they get kicked out?

    Or if they miss by a very narrow margin (like 1%) - would they be given another chance?

    You get kicked out. I mean it is unfortunate, but failing the same exam 3 times The uni have given them every chance.
