    Well the origianl offer was BBC (they said the C was becuase I was doing Physics or summit like that) but they lowered it 2 BCC after I did an aptitude test - think they only brought that in this year.

    It was OK. Lots of logic and basic maths on it. Not much else. Didn't ask you to write any code or ne thing.

    Heh, not bad then. I guess they couldn't ask you to write code, since they know quite a few students will start with no programming experience at all.

    Hi, I don't post much so none of you really know me that well, but I'd be well up for this! You all seem like ace people so I'd love to meet some of you! I agree it'd make the whole thing slightly less scary too, although after a few drinks I'll be chatting to anyone that'll listen

    Surely its good that you end up chatting to everyone - whenever I go out I end up talking to people I've never seen before - meet a girl from Wolvs last week in The Tube. BTW - speaking of The Tube - do you guys have one? I know you've got a Revs (Revolutions) which is currently my fav place.

    Our results come out Thursday 19 August so perhaps when people know whether they are coming or not... Although I've only just joined and I don't really know who's who yet - you all seem pretty tame to me

    Hey everyone!!

    Hope you all got the results you had hoped for!

    Just to say if anyone else wants to add their name to the meeting up list then that would be cool, i'll send a PM round in the next few weeks with my email address etc on so that we can maybe sort something out during the first few weeks of uni??

    What exactly were we intending on doing? Meeting in the Union Bar (I'm assuming we have one) and then taking it from there, or something like that?

    Yeah something like that!! Whatever anyone wants to do!! If no-one's up for it then it doesn't matter- just thought it might be cool to all meet up and have a chat etc....if we don't like each other we never have to meet again!! Its all good for freshers networking and making new friends!

    There are a few bars in the Guild (call it the Guild, damn it! ). Joe's, Beorma and the Underground (Underground might only be open when they have events, not sure) and there's always the Gun Barrells (or Gunnies) that's just off campus.
