nice one mate. I am pretty much behind but when i know ive covered all the checklist stuff and my teacher is always satisfied with it i wont get it back. If i have missed anything out at all which im quite sure (dont want to sound too big headed lol) ill ask for it back to quickly add the stuff in.

I have 3 more unit wite ups left to do which is a bit of a pain. then i wish i go over last years units and make some of them a lot better grades.

Yeah, ive got unit 9 and 4 to finish in terms of write-ups, we are currently preparing for the Unit 5 exam in June.

I am expecting my unit 19 results back in mid-March and my teacher wants me to re-submit my unit 10 coursework from last year again so ive got quite a bit to do still.

Should come out with a BB, but if i try a little harder than possibly an AB.

I wish i had made my mind up at the begining of sixthform that i wanted to go uni otherwise i wouldnt have pissed about as much grrr lol..
I said that in the summer after year 13. I was planning on joining the forces but realised I couldnt run the distance, so thought of Uni and remembered that I hadnt thought about going to Uni in year 12/13 so I hadnt applied. That means I am spending a year undoing all of the messing around I did by being the only Year 14.

Got daft amounts of History essays to do going back to around November that I still cant be bothered to do, plus GCSE Maths coursework. At least Physics is going well.

Need to get 220 points to get to Hudds. Lucky for me, that only means EE at AS this year

Hi Nataliethm

Not thinking of Ashenhurst myself, but I might think about it when it gets closer.

NickMorgan asked on the last page if anyone was going on the 8th, so it looks like two of you

I didn't even know there was an open day on March 8th. Or is it just a subject based one?

Even though the prices for Storthes have gone up, I'm still gonna go there. I wouldn't be able to handle sharing a bathroom. It's bad enough sharing the one at home with my brother! My parents have agreed to pay my rent though, so it won't take out a huge amount from my loan.

I am a bit worried too as i dont really know what everything is going to cost. All i will have is the money i am entitled to from student loans and grants which i am unsure about at the moment and whatever savings i can scramble together.

My parents cant help with anything as they dont earn that much, so i should be entitled to the full about of grants and loans but i dont know if that will be enough or not.

Hi Mark

I think you should be ok, my sister was in a similar position and she managed fine, i think as long as you dont have any other outstanding bills you wil be fine

Okay...I haven't recieved a confirmation of a conditional pack thing. D'you reckon this is because I deferred a year? Or maybe it's just lost in the post. I guess I'll just wait and see.
