As per the title...

I joined (yes totally stereotypical of TSR) to ask if my GCSE grades were good enough for oxbridge (spoiler: they weren't)

I am now here what 9 years later? Decided to stay for the lovely peeps I've met a long the way and do tell people they're wrong with science


And you guys!?

I wanted to find more about Radiography. Three years later. I’m studying biomedical science and answering questions and giving advice.

I joined initially to check uni rankings between marginally different RG unis. (:facepalm:) Later on I used tsr to ask for advice on law applications and to keep track of when firms were getting back to people. Made some good friends along the way who I interviewed with! Now enjoying passing my advice on, having benefitted so much from other user’s advice on here.

Whenever I do research for school work etc TSR always came up and I found other people’s advice and help very useful.

So I am very appreciative for those who have helped me along the way (Thank you💛).

The people here are adorable and I enjoy talking to everyone🥰.

I needed advice on something university related, I don't remember what, as for why I'm still here, most of the people here are nice, and this isn't really a bad website.

7 months ago TSR came up in a search for something (can't remember what) so I decided to join and take a look.
If I didn't enjoy being on here and like the people, I wouldn't have stayed, so I guess that's why I'm still here.

Originally to encourage people who wouldn't traditionally think that Cambridge was 'for them' to apply if they are bright and driven - because it very much is for them. I continue to do this, plus posting a load of crap besides.

Rehab for TSR addiction?

I initially joined when doing my GCSEs, then rememberd about this place many years later when I was bored and rejoined.
