College: Univ
Mat went quite bad over all
Computer Science A*, Maths A*, Further Maths A (got a c in Physics AS)
I do dance outside of school which is a nice release, and I'm attempting Cyber Discovery this year but will probably run out of time again with school work
I have absolutely no idea how to de-stress, I guess dance helps, but I have have a lot to stress about at the moment, including trying to get my computing project done.
WBU?

For me it’s:

College: Worcester (the best college change my mind)
- MAT was bad. that’s all. it was awful ;-;
Subjects: Maths A*, Physics A*, Further Maths A
Hobbies: I love video games, particularly Nintendo although lately I’ve fallen in love with Hollow Knight!!!! And scrolling around Instagram for memes ofc
I have literally no methods to stop the stress please help


Wow dance sounds rlly cool!!!! That’s very nice that you have a nice creative outlet on the side :0 cool stuff
Omg Cyber Discovery, when I missed it last yr I promised myself I’d try it this year but this month has been such a load of work I completely forgot abt it ;-; best of luck with your participation tho!!!

Thanks,
To be fair, I was stuck between Worcester and Univ, I didn't commit until I sent off my UCAS.
I really like Nintendo too, I'm hoping to get the new Pokemon soon! And I really want to try Hollow Knight and a bunch of other game!!!

My guess to de-stress would be to try and do something you enjoy that's productive rather than watching stuff or something like that, like my brother likes to code random stuff and make stuff with wood. I guess what I'm trying to say is to do something you enjoy even if it has nothing to do with being academically productive.
Hope that makes sense/helps!!!

Yeah I have heard that. I guess we will just have to wait and see lol. Anyway the main reason I reapplied was because I didn't want to do the subject I applied for last year.

What do you mean!?!?!? "maths is a skill you can easily forgot" hahahahaha! I am sorry but if you "forget maths" and apply for a maths related subject like computer science you are wasting time and money trying to get into oxbridge.

no no trust me, i asked that at the compsci department on their open day and they said that to me. they were like "unless youre doing something maths related during that gap year"
