    Don't say things like that i'm enjoying gloating over the natsci's every saturday just now.
    prep for tuesday isn't going well at all-been struck down with man flu all week so despite trying to work not much is going in! Cool yes JF is supervising us- probs my favourite but then anatomy is my favourite subject. Will we be seeing you next tuesday evening?
    Just find out one of my friends is going to christ's for medicine next year
    JF was my favourite supervisor at 1A, and my second fav overall (behind Ashley!). He made anatomy so simple (and when he started with us, he had no idea what our course was like and what we needed to know). His approach to anatomy is one reason I seem to enjoy surgery far more than I really should at this stage.

    I should be able to make an appearance on Tuesday, just as long as I don't have a supervision that evening (which should be unlikely). Don't worry too much about the test- it's just a good way of figuring out what you need to work on come Easter. Back in my day, anatomy was T/F or MCQ and the others had essays, but 2/3 of my supervisors at 1A no longer teach at King's...

    EDIT: oh yeah, hope your manflu improves:P I only had saturday lectures because at part II, i was technically a natsci, and did immunology. Saturday lectures in part 2 are a rarity.

    It is related to bile yes, but isn't technically a bile salt as far as I'm aware.

    Incidentally (having just read this a few seconds ago) biliverdin is reduced to bilirubin in the normal processing pathway, but it can sometimes be reformed by oxidation in the periphery in people with long standing jaundice, turning them green from yellow. Fact.

    I was wondering if all the pooled applicants are as insane every year as they are this year?

    Guilty conscience? wasn't referring to you in particular, dw
    Sorry, was probably being over sensitive. Then again, I'm state-school and non-Tory at a rather Tory private-school college so my sensitivity levels are running on high.........and I really do like my college, btw.

    The insanity levels are the same, but the exponential increase in users of the forum results in a net increase :dry:

    Haha I can sympathise, well no, my college isn't some sort of Tory-fest... but yeah I found that when you've been brought up in a world of more socialisty-leaning-to-the-lefty-ness ( ) it came as a bit of a shock that a lot of young people are Conservative. I mean it shouldn't seen as they're doing increasingly well in terms of votes yadda yadda, but still! Also, none of my friends are remotely religious, was strange to find some quite hardcore religious folk too!

    I must have been sheltered

    Ahahahaha.

    Basically, those who were straight accepted/rejected seemed to be able to access their SAQ without any problem.

    Those who were pooled could not access it (It said 'Your application is inactive', I think) and thus everyone was fine - at first. Then people who started getting interviews/offers at other colleges began to be able to access their previously 'closed' SAQ's, and the college listed was the one where they got an offer/interview, and this sent waves of hysteria through TSR for those who still could not access it.

    This got worse when, today, those who hadn't heard anything during the pool period were able to log into the SAQ, but with their original college still listed. Now people think they have been rejected because of this, as no other college wanted them.

    It's only a theory being circulated, anyway.

    This is where things like rational choice theory kicks in and the collective benefits of TSR are inverted on people :shot:
    Nevermind how entirely redundant a poll is. I wish TSR would implement rules preventing these threads just to save people from themselves :dry:

    Oh I expected that people would be analysing their result outcome in terms of their SAQ content. A bit unseasonal... round October/November we're usually swamped in about 6 different SAQ threads all slightly rephrasing the same questions, and usually blowing it ridiculously out of proportion.

    Well it's not really the poll, especially as the results are skewed anyway. Still, we have to find something to fill our time, right? :p:

    Ouch, that pool SAQ theory stuff is mental. Hmm, Cambridge should really suspend logging into the SAQ for everyone next year or something, a bit like when track goes offline. Looking at that thread makes me scared, let alone the pooleees!!
