    They look worse than crap. I don't see how we need them, especially if we're planning to do politics next year

    Craggy, what -is- your story? :p:

    You're 22 soon, but I swear you were posting on the Fresher's thread. But that can't be the case, because you're Ukebert's college Mum...
    *sigh* (a bit of it is on my profile btw)

    Um...
    - 12yrs old (living in South Africa): :idea: "I want to go to Cambridge" (Parents: erm... yes dear )
    - 16yrs: Take IGCSEs instead of SA qualifications with the intent of being eligible for admission to UK Universities
    - 17yrs: Take HIGCSEs
    - 18yrs: Work for 6months in a coffee shop, immigrate to UK in August, start A levels at a local college in Andover. Discover that they won't let me take A2 English Lit and Bio even though my HIGCSEs are the equivalent to AS, and therefore have to do 2yrs instead of 1 at college. Also discover that despite British nationality, passport, birth certificate etc the government require me to be 3yrs resident in the country before I can be eligible for student finance, and home fees from Universities :mad: Gap year is therefore made necessary.
    19yrs: Apply to Trinity Hall for a deferred place in NatSci. Come up for interview only to be rejected - apply for SPS at Peterhouse the following year and receive an unconditional offer.
    20 - 21yrs: Complete A levels, work for a year in Wetherspoons for 6months, the Alps for 2, an office for one month, and a bar before moving to Cam and matriculating.


    The End :girl:

    Did you go to the 'Numeracy for Social Scientists' lectures last year?
    They look crap and I'd like to know if they're actually helpful :p:
    I went to one, and disdained to attend another. If you're thinking of Psychology for Part II then it might be an idea, and possibly Sociology if you think you'll be interested in qualitative projects involving surveys and statistics - but essentially no. Its A level stuff and disastrously boring.


    Don't abandon me, SPSlings!!!! :puppyeyes:

    You'd regret doing Arch Anth, especially if you'd swapped this Michelmas :ninja:

    And how can you have half a supervision? :ninja:

    Arch and Anth is cool! Why would I regret it? At least the disciplines are integrated :ninja:

    They have 5 every two weeks, so that averages out to 2.5 :ninja:

    I'm always quite surprised by how unstructured all other courses seem to be.

    Maths is 2 lectures a day, 6 days a week, at the same times each day. Two supervisions a week, and an example sheet from two courses per week with two weeks to complete them. Also, all supervisions are just up two flights of stairs
