I was just wondering when reading lists get sent to you, especially since I got offered entry for 2005. Does anyone know if they send them when you get your A-Level results in August, or if they wait until next year some time? Does it vary from one college to another or is it the same across the university?

Thanks, Joanna

I don't know if it's different for deferred entry, but I seem to remember reading that you're going to Sidney for NatSci? Sidney sent me my reading list in the summer, so relatively late. I think it was before A level results, but even if you were going straight there in October you're likely to be waiting for it. Not sure if they send them out later to gap year people though.

HOWEVER you can find the exact reading list they'll send you here. There's no requirement to read all the books and you're certainly not expected to buy any of them, but some are interesting reads.

Ta! I just thought it would be helpful to start reading stuff in my gap year, then I don't forget everything. And yes, I am a Sidney NatSci...

It does help a lot. I read a psychology book which has helped enormously so far. Means I understand concepts much more quickly.
