Hey! I got in to do biology and chemistry and I'm going to be in Common Lane House. I'm pretty nervous though! I don't know anyone else going, and I'm really scared of everyone else being stupidly smart and falling behind. Ahhhh, I'm excited but nervous at the same time!
Something tells me we're probably not going to hear anything else, although it would be nice just so I know my acceptance form got back to them okay. I keep on worrying that something will have happened to it in the post! :L
Also, has anyone been accepted for any other summer schools? I got a place on the Cambridge sutton trust one today, and I kind of feel bad about accepting a place on two.. xD
I know! I get so worried that something happened to my form, and I'm gonna turn up and then I have to leave because they've given my place away... which Im sure wont happen but my mind thinks like that.
To ZoeMaloey, nope. I did apply to the cambridge sutton trust as well, but they sent me a letter saying I didnt get a place. If you want to go to two then do it. Cambridge is cool. I went there for 3 days in yr10 for a 'Chemistry Camp'. It was very nice there.
Ugh, i really wish they would let us know that they got our acceptance form. I also need to buy the jumper. What colours did you all get? I am thinking green.
I'm going to be nervous when i get there. I'm not very good at talking to people i dont know. and of course im worried that i wont understand anything... still cant wait though.
Also, I wish you all good luck for your exams!!!
Perhaps I got an email because I ordered and paid by email?
I went shopping today and my goal was to buy a nice simple dress that I could just wear some nice jewellery with, but instead got stuff I didnt need...
Oh dear. Good luck with telling him that... actually, I havent told my school that I'll be missing two weeks. But I figured it didnt matter too much. I can copy notes from a friend, and anyway, I will forget everything over the summer holidays.
Speaking of open days, I really wanted to go to a cambridge open day, so its just my luck that they are on the 5th and 6th of July. (Also my luck that a quidditch match for a olympic torch ceremony in Oxford is on the 9th July...)
Ah, that would make sense. Sorry, I forgot you could order by email :P I've not even had a chance to go shopping yet, but I'm pretty sure that even when I do get round to going I probably won't find anything :L But I'm looking for the same sort of thing - just something nice and simple.
Aha, I'm not too sure how well he's going to take it xD I wouldn't really be all that bothered if it wasn't for the fact that we're supposedly doing a lot of our coursework in that time. My head of year knows though, and everybody else has been fine with it.
I know, I've had a similar problem with open days. I also wanted to to try and go to that quidditch match... I didn't realise that it was while we're away!
When I heard about the quidditch match i just thought 'I have to go!' so I was sad when I found out I couldn't. How often do you get to go and see a quidditch match? The UK doesnt have many quidditch teams, and I don't think there are any official teams (who enter the quidditch world cup).
I think I've figured out what to wear. I'll probably buy a skater dress from ebay. Plus some nice jewellery and I'm sorted.
I'm hoping that the summer school might help me a bit in deciding what to study at uni. Does anyone have any idea what they want to study yet? I thought I did until a few months ago...
