    I have one more real term as an undergraduate.

    And am hoping very hard that I'll have much more than 6 months left at Cambridge...

    I got 97 in D1. I was distraught. I got 100 in my five other maths A-level modules
    *negs* :p:

    I really didn't do enough work for A Level. Set a rather dangerous precedent :p:

    Hey, let me have my maths, it's the only thing I've got :p: That and my oh-so-lovely 'One of the top 5 marks in the country' letter :yep:

    But no, I didn't do much work for A-level either. And I was made an offer of four A-levels plus STEP - all these people who're complaining of tough offers :no: Even warwick gave me an offer of 4 A's.

    Heh, my 4 A offer would have been a doddle had I not been doing Electronics mostly self-taught and outside of school hours :rolleyes: I worked hard on that and only just scraped one in the end.

    It was good fun for all but the last week or two before the coursework was handed in and the week before the exams

    And what? Where?

    The amount of work I've done at uni is scary. In one term it feels like more than the last four years of my education put together

    Though that might be because the only effort was put into coursework, and coursework rarely occured in my wonderful subjects

    I suppose if I look back at it, then I must have done quite a bit of work last term as I completed all of the supervision assignments set. But I never felt like I was doing anywhere near enough.

    :ditto: I feel like I did more work during AS than I did all Michaelmas actually (I slacked a lot in A2 though after I got my offer...). I spent a lot of time last term stressing/generally faffing around and procrastinating than doing actual productive work. I'm definitely turning over a new leaf next term. :shifty:

    All these offers chat is making me slightly nostalgic for this time last year, and how surreal/brilliant it all felt. Life at Cambridge hasn't been the bed of roses and perfection that I had imagined back then, however. :p:

    No-one from my school or people I know have got Oxbridge offers this year.

    I'm going back to my college on tuesday to find out how many mathmos got offers :p:

    And yeah, getting the phone call in the middle of my chemistry lesson from my sister telling me I'd gotten an offer was an amazing feeling :p:
