    Hey guys!
    My college just sent me few maths and physics problems I need to solve before I start my course.
    I'm an international student so I don't know how things work in UK so I just wanted if we're supposed to solve it on our laptops or on paper.
    Also, can someone tell me, in general, if most of our course work is done through the medium of paper or digitally on laptops.
    Thank you.
    Which college are you in? i still haven't received any problems or a summer reading list.

    My math problems are to be returned by post or email, so I'm doing them on paper.

    Congratulations on your place!

    My friend has attained A*AA at A Level and is considering a post A Level application for Human Sciences. Although their grades exceed the standard offer, they think A*AA may not be competitive enough for Oxford. Human Sciences has the TSA as part of the application process. They attended a state comprehensive for GCSE and did well, but were at a grammar for A Level. I wondered if any of your experiences might help inform them.
    A*AA is fine, I got an interview for Human Sciences with AAA equivalent- I did the IB (although I didn't get in eventually, the applicant feedback said my scores where competitive)

    Are you a physics student? If so (or any non-essay subject), virtually all of your work - bar a few lab reports and some computing - will be done on paper, and the majority of tutors expect physical copies handed in.

    They do put on musicals and some of my friends at Worcester have been involved with them, although how is best to get involved I do not know. Also some current worcester students are in the Oxford Belles so you can speak to them when you arrive

    What subject will you be studying?

    EDIT: Also, check out this youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCV0...XD0FjXN1CzsUBA
    Kathy was in my year at Worcester and just graduated, she's now going on to theatre school (at the royal academy of music I believe). Some of her videos are about her time in musicals at Oxford, particularly, Anything goes. she was also in various other musicals in her time at Oxford (eg singing in the rain).

    So, Worcester has been well represented in musical theatre recently

    Oh my gosh that's exactly my plan, I want to go to the royal academy after Oxford !!! Thanks for the link I will watch it avidly. I am coming to study biology, so not very music centred so I plan to get involved in the extra music heavily.

    time to call the resident Worcester music expert The_Lonely_Goatherd


    in every leaflet I've seen, musical extracurricular activities have always been mentioned as having a strong presence - if that counts for anything. xD There are so many societies (including some weird ones), I'd be surprised if musical theatre was not one of the most successful and popular.
