    Does anyone know where I can buy a cheap alarm clock in the centre of town? I've become immune to the sound of mine.
    Or you could go to Argos and get a decent one?

    where can one buy a tape measure in this town? tape measure as in the floppy, roll into a spiral kind, not the stiff metal kind I just can't think where there might be one.
    Are there any sewing shops (not sure if that's what they're called)? I think they're the most likely to have that kind.

    PS: If I post again before dinner, please tell me to get off TSR.

    Sainsbury's has a domestic economy section, they might have a floppy tape measure there.

    And I didn't need it :p: My DoS was really nice about it actually, has given me a good jolt of confidence, saying that he thought that I could do a good deal better than what I have acheived.

    Having said that, the highest mark was 87%, there were 4 or 5 others greater than 60% and a few below me, the others I haven't heard from yet. So I have some way to go. But yeah, feeling more cheerful Had a hilarious part in it when he said to me "So how many extra-curricular activities are you doing?" and I said "5". His face froze in horror for a split second :p: I am going to cut down on ringing and Bridge, sadly, I have to choose priorities and work has to come before everything bar my precious folk music.

    Plus I have resolved to get a ban by request from the Back Room, which should cut down my time on TSR a bit whilst still allowing me to have fun in the MUN HoC and here.

    Now, the big question, shall I go to sleep or start work? I'm thinking the former. MY hand was shaking all through the morning from fatigue and I didn't understand any of the lectures.

    Did anyone else go to the Union last night? It was quite a good debate, save for Dr Lee Elliot Major (who is apparently Director of the Sutton Trust) whose arguments seemed to centre on the premise that if you went/go to a school which is neither private nor a grammar, has children on free school meals and children who don't all get 5 a*-c's at GCSE, then you are somehow "not alright" and will never do well in life - certainly couldn't get to Oxbridge. Love how this includes me and all of my old school... :rolleyes: Apologies for a rant (esp so early in the morning) - was just one of the most annoying things I've heard, and one of the few times I've actually been addressed here upon the assumption that I went to a very expensive school, where everyone goes to Oxbridge and I couldn't possibly understand anything else. Rant truly over now, sorry.
    Well did anyone take him to task on it?

    Am I the only one that wakes up around 10 minutes before the alarm, whenever I set it for, then? :p:
    I often wake up about two seconds before the alarm goes off. But not when I've been up late working the night before like West Wing often has...

    Quick question:
    If you do combine your degree with another subject, i.e. doing Part I in one subject and Part II in another, what would your degree say? I'm thinking of doing two years of philosophy and then two years of law (the two years of law would constitute a full degree, apparently). What would my degree be in? Law, Law and Philosophy, Philosophy?

    The degree would be in law - it's the one you do your finals in.

    Law. Whatever you finish with, basically.

    Argh I'm in a sticky mess!!! :argh:

    Last term I went about in a flap trying to find a supervisor for my project. My course director said he'd supervise me if noone else would. I tried other people, particularly the Ethnography lecturer in our department because I'm using the ethnographic method.
    She got back to me and said she wouldn't have time for supervisions until March :eek: (the project is due May)

    So yesterday I emailed her to say that I felt March would be a bit late, but thanks anyway - I'd find someone else.
    At the sametime I emailed the course director and said 'Please supervise me!!!!1111!!!!1!
    So I woke up to find that both of them had replied. The Ethnography supervisor turned round, changed her mind and said 'oh actually I could give you a supervision next Friday'
    And the course director offered to supervise me on Thursday!

    :banghead:

    How embarrassing! I don't know what to do

    Alright, thanks. But my transcript would show two years of philosophy? And I could still say "I studied Law and Philosophy at Cambridge".
    What if I took my finals in Law, then did part II philosophy after? Two B.A.s?

    Sorry for all the questions, thanks for the answer.

    It was bound to happen sooner or later :console: I tend to do things the other way and give everybody lots of time to respond. This means nothing gets done. Sods law.

    The real question you should be asking yourself is which of them do you think would be best to supervise you? I'm sure they would understand.

    The thought of saying no to either of them is making me feel sick
    The course director is the one who I think I will get on with best, but he's also the one who said he'd supervise me if noone else would. And the Ethnography supervisor is a specialist in the field.

    Well there are funding implications in all this - the college wouldn't let you do it, your student loan (if applicable) would run out etc. If you're going to study after the B.A they would want you to do a postgraduate degree. If you want to do joint honors equally, you'd be better looking at a different uni which runs a dual course.

    Well it's entirely your choice. It would be perfectly reasonable to explain to the course director that the specialist has changed her mind and she's a specialist so would be more suitable. But it would also be fine to say to the specialist that you've already made other arrangements if you prefer the course director.

    Sorry - that was no help at all! :badger: (I'm becoming rather attached to Mr Badger)

    Money is not a problem for me, and I hope not for my college either (it is a rich one). Is it possible to do a master's degree in a subject, having studied it for only two years?
    I don't want to do a dual course, I want to do two full courses, basically :P.
    Thanks.

    Lol. I guess I'm just blowing it out of proportion a bit if its 'perfectly fine' from their perspective. I just feel as though I'm giving them the impression that I'm messing them around either way :hmpf:

    You could do a masters in the course that you do for your finals. If you get a place, that is.

    Sounds like a really tough decision Sadly there is very little that any of us can say to help you with it :p:

    That kind of situation is really icky though. :sadnod:

    I ahve never understood that smiley. And I'm going to sleep. Four hours is really not enough.
