    Have bassoons? :dontknow: Although bass oboes do exist.
    Bass oboes are only an octave below normal oboes, what you want is a contrabassoon. They bring aaall the boys to the yard.

    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.
    If this was the case then there's no chance I would have applied. SOUTHERNERS!

    Officially firmed! Although the length of this process is starting to get silly! I've been an applicant, and interviewee, an offer holder and now a firmer and I just want to be a fresher and be done with it all. It grates me that I can't say 'I'm going to Cambridge' yet, summer can't come quickly enough.

      Sounds like a cool kid. Mine can vary from artists such as deadmau5, zany and general hardstyle mixes to pop punk and metal. :lol:

        Yep. I think of the people I've seen so far with King's offers, the majority have been gap years. :lol:

        Haha I havent done any franking, what a shame... :P I'm going to thailand, cambodia, vietnam, singapore, australia and hong kong when do you leave? we could be there at the same time haha
        Well I can tell you it's just lovely, especially on days like today where they send around 600 letters

        Oh wow, that sounds like an amazing trip. You must be away for quite a while in order to visit so many places? I'm only gone for around 5 weeks, leaving on May 10!

        I'm actually quite glad I have college to go in to, when I feel like it, because it gives me something to do that isn't just doing weird things - like trying to learn Norwegian.
        Ha, why Norwegian out of interest?

        Det bør imidlertid være enkelt for deg å lære siden du er engelsk!

          Skotsk, takk.

          Ja, det er veldig enkelt! Jeg liker Skandinavia, spesielt norrøn mytologi, og jeg har venner som bor i Norge.

          It's supposedly the best language to get by with in Scandinavia, with the greatest comprehension between Denmark and Sweden. The verb conjugation and ordstilling ( :cool: ) are very simple for an English speaker, which is rather handy!

          Translation
          Yes, it is very easy. I like Scandinavia, especially Norse mythology, and I have friends who live in Norway.

          Of course you like Scandinavia, who doesn't? We're all wonderful here And yes, it's definitely the best language to learn; very much like Danish in it's written form, and very similar to Swedish when pronounced. All in all the easiest way to learn three languages at once!

            Definitely. I've nothing else to do with my time, so I'm going to try and get it up to a decent standard, at least in written and reading comprehension. Trying to get my hands on Norwegian translations of books has proved difficult though.

            Just attempted to apply for student finance (for the upteenth time), and still having major difficulties with the college/course bit. Peterhouse isn't listed (fair enough, quite a few colleges aren't listed), but whenever I try to enter details manually it just goes back to the original course page, seemingly having made no difference whatsoever. Anyone else having this problem?! And if so, anyone have any solutions?
            Are you by any chance clicking "change course" when you've finished typing the details in instead of "continue"? Sorry if it's a stupid question but I did that at least twice

            I felt exactly the same, but don't worry - you DO have an offer

            I am doing English in Magdalene ~ what subject/college do you have an offer for?
            Sorry this took forever for me to see!

            I've got an offer to do Medicine from Sidney
            And it finally came up on track a few weeks ago, so it seems more real now.
            Now I've started freaking out about the fact that we still have to actually achieve the A level grades they've asked for.

            Just got an email from my DOS saying, and I quote, "now that you've got this offer - it's important not to screw it up..."

            No pressure then :lol:
