    Haha;

    The only programme I'd like to influence my accent would be "The Sopranos" ... I don't suppose you get many Italian-Americans at Cambridge? And yeah, the one thing I'm definately keeping down at uni, is my northern accent... I don't wanna come back and get laughed at lol, and I wanna be representin' the whole of the Boro down there...

    You know what... I always have this stupid compulsion to talk as if I've already got in... "when I come down there" as opposed to "If I come down there"... and the close the results get, the smaller my chances seem. Daayym did I do badly in these exams, or did I do badly :eek: .

    Aye... I think I met one or two medics... I can't remember who they were, but they were very very helpful... one girl in particular helped me on a few occassions... in fact she saved me from being late for an interview with a very daunting interviewer... Thankyou if you're out there and you're reading this ! lol

    In fact, she walked me about 20 meters in the direction of Dr. Abulaffiah's (sp?) room; I wouldn't have got there otherwise lol... but she went no closer to his office, and when I spoke to him, I could see why :rolleyes:

    Hello there - late entry:

    Name: Lucerna / Michelle
    (if I get the grades) Bio NatSci at Emmanuel
    Location: pompey pompey pompey. yay.

    And here for the hell of it is a very goofy pic just cause other people seem to have added photos...

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...ommonroom2.jpg

    People seem to be discussing accents. I, alas, am a bit posh. I tend to lose my "t"'s when home though. And some people say I sound South African/American - god knows why. Too much TV probably.

    Thanks! You too My offer's AAA in bio,chem, maths. My Spanish isn't included (dammit)

    Received pronounciation sounds good too me - enough to gain respect, not too much to get teased
