      Lucky. £395 was the cheaper option... There was also a one term pass for £160 I think which works out more expensive

      Good question, something to do with engineering. I remember she needed physics and maths as A Levels and she went to three interviews in Year 13 to get onto it. I'll ask her next time I see her and get back to you x

      You defo have a break, maybe two. Depending on the lecturers you get between 20 mins to half an hour.

      ****ing 9AM starts. I have them 4 days out of 5. End up missing all 4.

      Why Unis don't just priotise 9AM's for people in 3rd and 4th year is beyond me. First year only counts for 6% here ffs. We have the least incentive to actually get up and go. People in later years will go because their degrees are on the line.

      I have to say the one thing I hate is how much clubs (sports in particular) are orientated around drinking and clubbing, and making you do horrible things. I just wanted to play a gosh darn sport!
      The one thing I love is my course, it’s so refreshing to be able to study something I’m interested in
