    I'm so tired at the moment. Had my last ever day at school yesterday, got my shirt signed by everyone! (including a lot of teachers) Its so weird to think Im never going to do any of the stuff that has been my routine for 7 years now! I feel really lost now!

    Anyways, had the leavers ball last night, was really fun (although I got pissed pretty early, apparently we were only meant to take one glass of complementary champagne......ooops :p: ). Food wasnt brilliant but the atmosphere was!

    The whole leaving thing never really quite hit me yesterday, but it has now and its making me really quite sad

    Yeah, well done Myrna! I half wish I knew my results, and half wish I didn't but a month is still too long to wait!

    OK, crazynutter, you win on the earliness of your awakening, but how often is yours? Mine is pretty regular. Anyway, hope your sister gets sorted out with the whole toilet thing soon.

    Also, a moan - someone gave me bad rep cos I asked what an Oxbridge Admissions tutor was. I was being sarcastic - it's pretty obvious what one is. The point I was making was how come some people have tutors dedicated to sorting out their application, whereas I was left almost completely on my own, and could never find anyone when I had a question???

    Becuase they pay for it. Take note - you got an offer without having to use oxbridge admissions. So did I. I'm guessing most people with offers did. So if people want to pay for it, let them, but I doubt it transfers as much of an advantage as the company likes to pretend.

    lol. I think she meant a teacher at your school/college who is in charge of sorting out oxbridge applicants, rather than the Oxbridge Admissions people.

    Oh, I thought all schools had them in some form. Although when I think about it thats really silly.

    Don't worry - I think more stupid things than that all the time! Although I think it's someone at their school. They're probably private-schooled - I guess the private schools can afford extra staff for stuff like that, whereas ours had to ask parents for money to rebuild when it got burnt down. How ridiculous!

    Anyway, our Head of Sixth is the only person at our school who sorts out uni stuff, so it's all his responsibility. Respect to him though - it's a pretty big Sixth Form.

    Out of interest, did anyone here go to a private school, or are we mainly state-schooled? I'm guessing maybe wanderer was private?

    And thanks everyone who gave me rep. Love you guys! I hated feeling like I'd done something wrong!

    So what's the difference? I never really understood where grammar schools stand. Please enlighten me!

    I went to a private school but if we had a teacher in charge of Oxbridge Applications then I was unaware of them. Our head of sixth form (former now) gave a talk on applying to Oxbridge but that was within his wider talk on university applications.

    I just went to the same teacher for everything including applying to Cambridge- she didnt know much about it either so we just read through the website together. Our school will probably employ an Oxbridge admissions tutor in the coming years but it doesnt have one now.
