    I remember a school mate of mine telling me that the holiday between moving from primary school to secondary school was the best one there was. Then I grew up another 6 years and then even after the slight dissapointment of my results, it was the best Summer ever. Don't wish your summer away. Uni will add to what is likely to be an epic summer anyway.
    I'm literally counting down the days until my exams are over and summer begins.

    I CAN'T WAIT.

    Oo..well Hi hehe! Look forward to seeing you - if I get the grades which im worrying about!

    Yeah ive been thinking about the NCTJ accredited thing too.. I wonder if they did get accredited for it or not? Would it be worth sending them an email just to ask?

    I'll try to find someone on the first day who looks like they go on TSR and come and say hi to you! :rolleyes:
    Hmm yeah, I sent them an email about a month ago but I never got a response, I'll try again

    I'll wear a TSR bumbag so you know which one is me

    You met anyone else on our course? I bet we're too cool for school :cool:

    I got an email but it was just another acknowledgment letter for some reason.

    I thought the test wasn't too bad (even though I was like 30 mins late ), the only bit that was stupid was the 'general' knowledge questions... everybody whipped out their phones because they were ridiculous, I didn't though :woo: I copied from the guy next to me instead :ninja: How am I meant to know who the Finance minister for Ireland was two years ago :confused: Did you also notice how most of the people who didn't cheat, didn't pass? :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I talked quite a bit, but only because I had mass verbal diarrhea, so it was mostly bollox about cats and... walruses, and other fascinating topics. The only few people I did actually talk to properly said they weren't coming to DMU

    Which group were you in? I was in the in-the-middle group :cool:

    Heyy.. I didn't cheat! I didn't use my phone..just answered the ones I could and then hoped for the best!

    I don't think I'll get the grades though to be honest, I think I'll have to end up doing the joint honours!

    :eek: Damn I was hoping you were going to say you cheated... It might have made me feel better :o:

    You will don't worry, I didn't even have the necessary points and they gave me a place (I'm not stoopid, just **** at exams... like, really ****). I think its because I had prior experience, I showed them my ickle portfolio and they seemed to like it. Or Tor wanted my ass. Whichever.

    For added blessings I got Raptor Jesus to pray for you



    Did anyone in your interview have a portfolio? I was the only one in the entire like 30 person group who did :O It made me feel speshial... :yep:

    Expect to see me at DMU this summer with all of you!
    I'll be studying BSc Computer Science.

    Their accomodation application is taking forever and I also received the 'acknowledgement' e-mail.

    I'd do it mate. Anything to get a taste of what's to come before you jump in is highly recommended.

    I went into Leicester Uni via clearing and found out that they had an Open Day a week before I was due to join! I'd not seen the Uni before that. Had I not gone that day, I would have been up s**t creek without a paddle.

    Yeah im for sure going.. i told my mum and she was like YUSUF YOU ARE GOING OK!!! I wasnt even complaining about it, i was just telling her lol

    yeah it seems like a good idea to have a day for freshers to get a feel for the place waaay in advance.. its like when ur in primary school, just about to go to secondary school and you spend a day at A secondary school to get a feel for it.

    it works out well because the 17th of june is when my holidays from work start so im completely free lol

    I'm not sure whether I'm going to go to a summer school yet... I think I should. Still, I think I'm going to fail History big time tomorrow. I hope they let me in if I mess it up and get like an E... As long as I do well in my chosen subject of course :p:
