    As long as you have the grade requirements you're safe I reckon, the 3 I got all in one year were A* A* A (the A being an AH)

      :cool: Of course, the Bodley rooms are amazeballs.

      Well, I think they're just given to you so they can answer any questions you might have and to 'show you the ropes' a bit when you get there.

      I really wish the city of Cambridge was situated in the highlands of Scotland, not sure why, it's the only way I can think of making the place more beautiful.

      It's sort of like the difference between an A band 2 and a band 1.
      Except a lot of university offers include achieving an A*, however, only one university (maybe two) give out offers for Scottish students to achieve an A band one, and it's still uncommon to do so.

      I'd already done maths A-level when I moved to Scotland, so there wasn't much point me doing AH so my school arranged for me to do further maths semi self taught. Oh and we do A-level music as well as Advanced Higher cos there's more essay writing and harmony stuff.

      An A is 80% and an A* is 90%, in terms of AH, given they're not modular etc. A* is roughly equivalent to an A band 1. Sometimes universities give out offers on bands, which is pretty horrendous, but I think it depends on subject and stuff.

      Aw shucks, should probably play nice.
      P.s. "flute choir" worst word combination in English language. No joke not even being biased. An oboe choir is also all levels of horrendous-ness. Where's the bass?

        I have played in a flute choir accompanied by both bass clarinet and bassoon on different occasions. But most of the time you get by with the good old bass flute!

        IMO a bass flute just doesn't have the "oomph" you really want for bass
