Yeah, I had heard about this too. The UCAS system has changed though.. now, universities only know you've applied to them and not the others you've applied to.
Now, UCAS, on processing your form, automatically put the Institute codes in Alphabetical (then Numeric) order, and only lets each Uni know that you applied to them, and which position of the 6 they are in.
Much improved, and far fairer, other than only being able to apply to one of the Oxbridge institutions.
What are the criteria that people would suggest when deciding which college to apply to?
Same with Philosophy at Oxford which I can't do on its own - I'd have to take on something like PPE or Philosophy and Modern Language because they give me a better grounding than philo on its own. (surprisingly I can't even take Philo with English!)
Have looked it up for you...although you prob will already have looked at this...ah well...
' It is not possible to study philosophy at undergraduate level as a single degree subject; all courses containing philosophy are joint courses. The reason for this is the belief that the parallel study of related disciplines significantly enhances your understanding of each, bringing added dimensions of understanding and perspective.
The joint courses containing philosophy are the following:
Mathematics and Philosophy
Philosophy and Modern Languages
Philosophy, Politics and Economics
Philosophy and Theology
Physics and Philosophy
Psychology, Philosophy and Physiology
For details of the course structure, entrance requirements etc. of each of these courses, please see the entry for that course in this prospectus. '
Possibly no help whatsoever but goodluck for wherever you apply etc.
I did plan to stay at home for Uni but I'm begining to reasile neither me or my mother could cope if I stayed at home. We are always at each others throats.
Selwyn's (I think) got a JCR with a plasma TV, deck chairs and bean bags!!
What's the most modern college?
St 'Catz' *why oh why the z!* in Oxford is quite new in comparrison to most- my brother is there and in my opinion it's pretty ugly...but the rooms aren't so bad (well...ugly but hey!) as they are/have just been refurbished and he is lucky enough to have a nice sittle bathroom to himslef...kitchen it tiny though...
I think they have quite a good library and stuff too?
Trinity have some recently constructed accommodation, don't they?
