    Please feel free to ask me anything you want to know about the course or the university itself- I know I'd have liked to do this during my A/AS Levels so please feel free to fire away!

    Means 2008, the year the album 'St Jude' was released. I'm not very imaginative.

    Hahaha, wow. You really aren't.

    Question: have you taken a place on Peterhouse's UC team yet? If yes, will I recognise you?

    I tried out for it but unfortunately I'm just not smart enough to be honest.

    Favourite has to be the academics that we get taught by, simply because we get so much knowledge and world expert level stuff from them. Least favourite has to be generic things like having to do washing, managing money etc, that was hard for me to start off with.

    I did four AS levels but got an E in one of them so I dropped it. Three A-Levels (the highest grades) is all they look at as far as I understand, as this is what they did with me

    Obviously job prospects do play a part, but Law is an interesting subject and I chose it because I enjoy it. It's never good to pick a degree based on money alone, make sure you enjoy it because its 3/4 years of your life.

    Honestly it would be to just focus on the short term (your GCSEs) for now and make sure that you do them well before thinking too much too far ahead, and make sure that you enjoy yourself. Work/life balance is crucial to everything so don't stress yourself out too much and you'll be fine.

    Hello I am a gcse student in finland and I got four A*s and two as in my gcses is that enough for cambridge? I'm thinking of doing geography or land economy or education

    thank you xx
    Cambridge doesn't expect non-UK students to have GCSEs so it doesn't matter. And GCSEs aren't hugely important anyway. Did you go to an international school in Finland?

    Are you doing A-levels now?
