    Indeed - I was replying to "Or any other Pembroke offer holders?" I think there are only two other Pembroke NatSci's on TSR - one of them is ErrinR.

    I feel like a fool for choosing a competitive college now. If I get 1,2 in STEP, it's much less likely that I'll actually get in...

    That's what I did b4 my interviews. Haven't got asked any maths though, but I kinda felt the math-power. Do them all and you can consider yourself ready.

    I honestly think that if I didn't have the pressure of other subjects like Physics and Russian, I'd be doing more work overall, and obviously it would be more focussed. I wish I had no other exams to worry about...

      Ha how weird mines A*AA but I'm not sure if it's including Latin or not ! So I've emailed them to check, I hope it's not, I don't like Tacitus !
      Aha, I am actually doing Latin A level so I think that's why they said that :P

      Another IB person?! We are a rare species :P Almost as rare as A level people who understand the IB (sorry A level people)!
      Have you done much revision for your mocks?
      Eugh - those highers are pretty much my nightmare highers! Music? *shivers*
      Each to his own
      4 months to go! (i.e. lots of time to make up for the fail that is going to be my mocks...)
      Good luck for your exams too
      Well, I've done a lot of English revision but that's due to me having the actual oral commentary soon (in less than 24 hours' time in fact) which makes up 15% of my overall grade, so I pretty much need a 7 in that. Overall English and Music are actually pretty relaxed as far as highers go simply because they have quite a heavy coursework side to them - by the time I take the exams I'll already have done 50% of my overall English grade and 70% of my Music one (and all of the music coursework can be re-drafted until March I think, so I won't let it go until it's at a 7 standard!). As for standard-level subjects, I've done revision for Maths studies (yeah it's a cop-out I know) and Biology, but none yet for Japanese ab initio.

      History is the problem subject - there's just such a vast quantity of information you have to retain, and it seems disproportionately hard to get 7s in it compared with other highers. I've resolved to spend most of my weekends from now until the real exams reading history books to try and push my current borderline 6 standard into 7 territory before then.

      So yes, as I said before, good luck in your exams! They're never as bad as you think they will be

      Hi all, I was pooled by Jesus college for education with eng and drama and picked up by homerton! My offer is unconditional as I am a gap year student. Has anyone who has been "fished" out of the pool received an offer letter yet? Also are there any other education get holders or homerton offer holders? Thanks
