    A starting point is something we can help you with....

    Well, I applied to LSE, Durham, UCL, Royal Holloway, York and Warwick for History. They are all pretty good, but I also visited places like Bristol etc that I didn't like, even though it is very good for the course. I used the league tables (Times) and eliminated anything outside of the top 20, then had a look at prospectuses and went on Open Days-ending up with six that I wouldn't mind going to. I wouldn't do it the same way I did, I ended up with four offers and only really am willing to go to one of them!

    Better than ending up with 6 offers and realising that you want to go somewhere completely different *God bless Extra*....

    i still don't quite now how you manage to do that... did you not have one in mind as your favourite when you applied? and why edinburgh? (and why hadn't you thought of it before?)

    Originally I didn't apply to any course that lasted more than 3 years (trying not to take the mickey cout of my sponsors) so Edinburgh (along with Glasgow) was out. I later found out that I could have applied to any course I fancied and the company sponsoring me would not care in the least, then through a complete chance conversation with someone at Edinburgh, I ended up sorting it so that I got a nice offer for thier course. I like to think of the whole thing as fate, which also helps me think that god might be on my side in S2 on Wednesday!!!

    I've already got 81 or 82 on P2 so I'm not taking revision all that seriously (or doing any to be more precise ), I'll probably sit it tommorow simply because it's straight after History and I don't want to leave the exam room in the middle of other people working because it's rude. Tommorow should actually be pretty fun, I don't care about History and there is no pressure in P2 so I can be happy and cheerful all day....well until about 11am anyway!!! :rolleyes:


    PS - Is it sad to talk your maths teacher into giving you a personal lesson before the S2 exam?!? :confused:

    of course it's not sad... i saw mine last saturday at an unearthly hour in town (i was going to work) and i was talking about stats to her. then there was the time me and my mate took our p3 to the gym with us and saw our maths teacher there...

    actually one of our teachers has even said we can go round to her house as long as we ring up first (sos he can tidy up)
