    Well your college might teach it a little better than mine did... We were basically given no guidance other than we had to devise an experiment/investigation on absolutely anything we wanted from scratch. We then had 2 weeks of lessons to conduct our experiment, and then a further 2 weeks to write it up. I scraped an A in mine but I spent tens of hours on it - it was around 10,000 words in the end. None of us had any idea what we were supposed to be writing about, or how much to write - some of us went mental and wrote nearly 20,000 words, others barely wrote 2,000.

    I can PM you mine so you can see the sort of thing we had to write about if you like?
    Oh crumbs... that doesn't sound fun . I'm absolutely hopeless at these sorts of things when I'm not given a place to start.

    I'd really appreciate that, if you wouldn't mind sending me a PM . Thanks in advance

    Final year's every year put on a two night show - a couple of hours worth of songs, sketches, dances etc. Some filmed in advance, some done on the night. They are generally funny anyway, but generally even funnier when you know the clinician's involved and see what they have been persuaded to do!

    And yes, it is one of many reasons why RVC is great!

    Where are you guys finding all these? It's so entertaining!!
    They're all on YouTube, although I admit that I've mainly only seen the RVC ones . There's one that's been up for years that's set to We Built This City by Starship, I love that ! Some are better than others but on the whole it's really cute to see all of the effort that goes in

    You don't know how much a train ticket from London (or down south in general) would cost do you?

    I live in the south and it costs be £55 ish pound for a flexi return booked in advanced, however, I avoid travelling via London as this increases the price. I also have a rail card, without it I think the cost would be £70+ but this would depend on location. Buying a ticket on the day is always more expensive.

    You can check ticket prices via websites like National Rail (although I normally use First Great Western as I find their site a bit easier to use).

    Travelling by bus isn't really a feasible option for me as it would take too long to travel.

    Hope this helps.

    I would mention that the train links back home would be brilliant! The train station in Liverpool is only a 20min walk / £4 taxi ride from campus and as a major junction links are regular. I think there is a train to London at least a few times per hour, apart from Sundays were there are fewer services in general. I've just remembered, If you take a slower but cheaper route you could use London Midlands to get from Liverpool to Euston. However, it does stop at almost every little station there is, but worth a shot if you want something cheaper. I think my housemate got a single for £12 or so at one point, but booked waaay in advanced.

    I did mine on concepts of dog training and positive and negative re-enforcement and punishment. Wasn't very good thinking back . Recently my dissertation was on syringomyelia in CKCS. Was rather proud .

    I'm planning on doing my EPQ on inbreeding of dogs so might be asking you for some help later on... Did you watch Pedigree Dogs Exposed on BBC?
