    Just been fished by Christ's for Computer Science. I was originally pooled by Emmanuel. Very pleased
    Congratulations! So pleased for you (and admittedly pretty jelly! )

    Hahaha! You too! I've never bothered working my UMS out, & my 3 best aren't quite my 3 most relevant, so *shrugs*
    My three best include Maths and Further Maths, which is a bit awkward for an MML applicant

    Why won't they put me out of my misery, I almost broke a bone scrambling to the phone when it rang a few minutes ago, thank you mother. :unimpressed:
    I got a call last year from one of the uni's I had applied to and nearly crashed my car in my desperation to answer it! They rejected me as well lol x

    At least my third is German, but then my other two subjects are irrelevant too - Economics and Physics

    I know four people, including myself, who have been pooled by Downing for HSPS, one of whom was fished earlier today. I guess we'll have to wait until tomorrow but I really can't concentrate on my revision -.- Good luck! I hope we hear soon
    Do you know what college s/he was pooled into?

    Yup, same! Too nervous to concentrate - I don't have January exams but I have to learn play lines and write 2 essays, neither of which I can focus on.

    I've got my fingers crossed for us both

    I like languages (I took French GCSE as well, probably should have taken it to A-level to have stood a chance), and the course allows you to study things like linguistics, philosophy and political thought, which I also like.

    My best was Geography... then German, then French and then two other irrelevant subjects (I'm applying for French & Spanish, so that's not too bad, just annoying that French wasn't first)

    Ahaha, I think the moral of our stories is to keep a cool(ish) head, what will be, will be. I hope it's better news for you this year x

    Me too only that I'm (perhaps stupidly) thinking of applying to the same college but for a different subject. Ugh I hate feeling this desperate. There, I said it.
    I hate feeling so reliant on them! I've not given up hope but I'm just being realistic, really. Which college/subject did you apply for this year, out of interest? And which subject might you change to?

    I know, but the point was that there's nothing on the way Homerton has loads of stuff around it and to the East :0
    Homerton has very little around it

    Girton has lots. It has an Aldi just opposite it

    Perhaps Biology and Environmental Studies aren't that irrelevant, I mean.. you know.. France has an environment

    I'm hoping they would see Economics as relevant to the political thought within MML German, where you study economists like Marx and Engels :dontknow:

    You weren't the guy from Habs were you? Or perhaps you were the guy with the northern accent? I have no idea who you were, I just distinctly remember saying "let's play pool" and then two current students starting to play instead.

    Newnham so female :P I have two exams and the first is next Friday, I don't want to fail because I was stressing over uni then not get into uni because I failed. My life is a sham.

    If I believed in God I would be praying for us right now, I'll have to rely on my desperate mental pleading haha
