    Visesh, you are such a lier, you school gave you £500 in cold hard cash!!

    I got awarded "The Leaving Scholarship". Sounds good right? no its £10 of waterstones vouchers..

    i now have like £60 of waterstones vouchers..

    Scarlet ibis.. have you tried getting the bookshop to order the books in for you ? They should be able to order all the same books that amazon etc have, unles sthey are foreign or something. Usually takes a couple of weeks for them to get it in for you. I know waterstones and WH Smith do this.

    the only two books i got new this term were umm one I got from borders that was much cheaper than waterstoens cos of 20% off for students, and one a xmas present for my bro from amazon to get up to the free postage level

    he he he I win! £80. 3 prizes. One was £50, the others were £15. To be honest though, I kinda wish I got a trophy instead. Book tokens were just a depressing sign of my descent into Geekdom.

    My sister got over £200 in a combination of books, vouchers and real money. I feel very cheated. Though my overall prize haul adds up to more than that, that was only one year! My school's height of cheekiness was to award me a leavers' prize, and then forget to invite me to the damn ceremony! :rolleyes:

    Prize giving in schools are largely unfair. Full stop. I'm trying really hard to be the shepard, doh, not to talk about this.

    got rid of my new laptop. I am, once again, without a computer for uni.

    Had this forwarded to me if anyone is interested:

    The Come and Sing for the Disaster Appeal will definitely take place on
    Sunday January 16th in Great St. Mary's between 2.00 and 5.30. The
    programme will be the Vivaldi Gloria, Mozart's Ave Verum, and excerpts from
    Messiah (mainly Part 1, with some other choruses). There will be a flat
    rate £5 participation/admission charge, but there will be collecting
    buckets
    for donations at the end of the performance. We are arranging for a
    representative from one of the charities to come and make a brief appeal
    speech.

    We need to involve as many singers/choirs as we possibly can. GSM holds up
    to 1500 people, and it would great to try and at least fill the downstairs
    area with singers. The Cambridge Sinfonia is providing the orchestra.
    Please can you spread the word as widely as you possible immediately, and
    encourage people to come and listen even if they are not singers. We shall
    be contacting all the choirs that we can think of within the Cambridge area
    and beyond, so any contact details/email addresses would be helpful.
    It would also be good to get the information to schools and churches.

    Singers are asked to bring their own copies (and spares if they have them)
    if at all possible, but we shall need to provide music, so if you know of
    any sources of vocal scores of Messiah and the Vivaldi (any edition) could
    you let me know. The Mozart I can provide, but any other source of large
    numbers of copies would be helpful.

    No, I bloody cannot! I'm a CompSci, I don't use normal english. All the English words I ever know are {if, and, or, not, for, while, do, class, public, private, union,...}

    I can lend you Messiah and possibly even the Gloria if you want? I don't think I can do it as it's my birthday and my parents have arranged to take me out for lunch; don't think they'd appreciate the day being changed for a come and sing. ALTHOUGH perhaps I could book lunch for 12 and maybe I could do it...

    Anyway, if you want a copy of Messiah let me know - I currently have two as I still haven't given the loaned copy back from my concert in November

    Does cambridge have any kind of "learning centre" place like I've seen at other unis (where you can get help with specific "study skills" problems?)

    I could really do with having someone help me learn to write better.
