    You won't encounter any problems but it would be a bit unusual for a phys natsci to get a B in Physics! When you say you changed module that morning, what do you mean? Is this in reference to the AQA optional papers (astro etc.)?
    Yes I changed from Engineering to turning points the day beforehand

    You'll probably get further with this if you adjust that attitude. It won't go down well at Cambridge, I can assure you.



    The 'extenuating circumstances' you detail are, frankly, minor and irrelevant. A door being opened... I suggest you ditch this line - it will just antagonise people. As to the rest of it - you've said your offer is for 3 A levels, the standard offer of A*/A*/A? Thus, you can get a U in physics and, so long as you've made your offer in the three subjects requested, you'll be offered the place. If you want to do physics in IA, then that will be down to your DoS in consultation with you, but I don't remember anyone being denied the chance to do it because they didn't get an A* in it at A level.
    They were not minor at all. There was constant disruption for an hour ongoing as a nearby door was opened and closed repeatedly and people playing sports just outside. My school actually issued me and one other boy an official apology such was the scale of the problem.

    So, what societies are we looking forward to?
    Definitely the Union, obviously all the law stuff too, the labour soc, -and I was thinking maybe the History one too. Also, as a bit of an odd one I have been considering the assassins

    It is getting a bit out of hand now. Sorry if I've overstepped any boundary.

    Interesting. You'd think the people playing games outside would have disrupted the entire cohort equally, not just you and one other boy. So why was it that just you two received the 'official apology'?

    We were sitting in a separate area to the main cohort, I was sitting a different paper (turning points) and he had the flu.

    This thread is brilliant because of people like you - helping, supporting, never trying the one-upmanship or showing off. And we like to keep it that way :hugs:/ageappropriate.
    Aw, thank you! Well, I usually don't have any bother with anyone, just idiots who think they can push people around with typed up words.

    I am actually really looking forward to meeting you! You seem like a nice person, like my kind-of-person. :lol:

    Hey, guys I just got an email from Medwards. I finally sent in my choice of tripos papers (if I get the grades) and they sent me a message back telling me to have a good summer and they'll be in touch in due course. I just hope I get those grades, I can't help getting a little excited by the possibility.

    Thank you! Same

    I know exactly what you mean. I've been doing loads of law reading and then I get all excited about the course but then I'm suddenly overwhelmed with fear like - what if just building myself up for failure. It's an awful cycle. 40 days and we'll know.

    Out of interest, what are your course choices (I really like history too, and will probably take a history paper at some point ) ?

    I really want some more HP pops. Particularly Harry, Ron, and Hermione but you're right there are so many variations! I always see Goblet of Fire Ron next to Philosophers stone Harry and Hermione. I like consistency.

    I loved Matt Smith, and Tennant. My Dad met Tom Baker when he was a little kid (there's a really funny/adorable story behind that) so that's his favourite Doctor because it was a special encounter for him. The last season with Capaldi was pretty good but I think he's taken a long time to get there. I didn't like Clara much, so that might factor into my perception.
    Love that your Dad met Tom Baker! My Mum used to play with Patrick Troughton when they were kids. Showing my age here, but he was my first Doctor Who, and I still think one of the best. And yes, we did spend most of the programmes peeking out from behind the sofa 😱

    If you're around - could you 'deal'...
    All gone - hopefully.

    (That'll learn me for believing people when they say they are leaving...)

    Folks, don't mind the troll. There's eejits in all areas of life including Oxbridge. Maybe they are related to that £20 note dude...

    I haven't been asked to pick my papers yet, although I did tell my interviewers 4 of the papers I wanted to do (we have to pick 5). I've been sure of those 4 all along, but I keep flitting between a few options for the 5th paper - Christian conversion in late antiquity, contemporary religion (kind of social studies based) and then a paper about the question of God. I think I'm going for the God paper.

    Those are some interesting ones. I'm going to sound really dull now, but I'm quite excited to join one of the tea societies :laugh: I don't drink alcohol, so I think it'll be nice to be able to sit with company and drink non-alcoholic things on a Sunday afternoon. I also want to join something musical but I don't know if I have the confidence for a choir, and I'm not sure whether I'll be able to trek to a central college on a night with my viola for orchestra rehearsals. Maybe I'll try and find a violinist/cellist to play string duets with on a casual basis.

    Obviously does wonders for my sanity when someone with an unconditional is telling me I'm not going to get in though, not like I was really stressed about it already or anything :rolleyes:
