    Haha, why's that?

    I have to say that I do take great pleasure in the number of Wetherspoons I have drunk in in this great country, while on my travels. I won't quite be contented till I have done them all.
    Another world, mate. Haha.

    I actually like Wigan, good for music and that. But Wigan town on a Friday or Saturday... Christ.

    Not a big Wetherspoons man myself, but stayed in one of their hotels (I didn't know they had hotels!) in Brum the other weekend and it was pretty good. Was meant to be watching bands and spent all but 4 hours of festival time in a boozer round the corner form the O2. Standard pisshead behaviour.

    Double cap'y morgan and coke, 3 quid. Can't argue with that. Also whenever someone mentions a city, you can always give them "oh yeah, I had several pints in the Wetherspoons next to the statue". You make friends for life with such a simple travelling tactic, my man.

    Hahaha, fair enough. If I am ever unfortunate enough to be in the area, I'll give Wigan a bell. Done Manchester a few times, to mixed results. Probably not quite the same!

    This is true! I quite like Manc of a night but I only ever go to places where there's a band or some dodgy hip-hop thing, so different still haha.

    no. not unless you get 100.0% in your LNAT.
    Though my knowledge, Cambridge scrapped the LNAT a few years back...? Correct me if I'm incorrect.

    Sorry, let me rephrase. For Cambridge Law applicants, getting A*AA is the easy bit. For them, it is getting an offer which causes the bother. All of them will have A*AA predictions, many will far exceed this come Results Day, yet only a small percentage will be lucky enough to get given an offer.
    correct me if I'm wrong, although, you will receive your offer well before results day (conditional most usually) or your rejection. if you got an A*AA then you've met your requirements and the offer will be yours. I think what you're trying to say is getting the offer initially is the frustration part of the Cambridge application process...?

    I don't know what you mean. I will stick with what I said in my posts, which is reasonably clear.

    Yes, you're right, but what Notoriety was saying, was that a large proportion of applicants have predicted grades exceeding A*AA. Given that prediction is based on prior attainment and that what they've attained prior to Y13 is projected to exceed A*AA, a lot of them would find this the easier part.

    So yes, even if you're predicted 4A*, but come out with A*AAC, you'll still be accepted (unless it's churchill who set A*A*AA offers, and in that scenario, many could that be harder than getting the offer).

    Yes, a lot of colleges that were built in the 1900-2000 period at Oxbridge have this awful combination of modern and old architecture.

    I've been to a couple, and I have to say that it's better to be at a decently looking college with an ugly 1970s annex than to go to the all-brick monstrosity that seems to be Churchill

    MIT reminds of UCL but with fields instead of concrete haha.

    At least it's consistently crap. The London colleges have this problem where some buildings are a lot newer than others, so it ends up looking really silly when there's the 1851 Chemistry tower next to the new business school - place is so dusty and the benches wobble.

    edit: this intrigued me to go and look for the nicest unis and Columbia looks amazing, jesus.

    Coming from someone who didn't read law.

    And didn't study at Cambridge.

    Lastly, thinks Cambridge uses the LNAT.
    you don't need to read law, study at Cambridge, or have knowledge of Cambridge's law requirements to know the OP is over-ambitions. i can also help you detect areas where you may be over-ambitions, pm me for advice x

    Well, I have heard harrowing tales about St Andrews. Very familiar with their fellow man is how I'd summarise it.

    I think its naive on your behalf, i stated I only got one A, did i reveal any of my other grades? No, for all you know i could have gotten 8 A* and yet you bit the bullet.
