    Thanks Beetroot roots, my school phoned them and they said the admission tutor misread my AS results. My chemistry syllabus is 'Chemistry B Salters' and they thought I got a B rather than A.
    Anyway, problem solved. I have got my conditional offer early this year.

    Two bitter posts in one day...

    Clearly, this is nonsense. Anyone believing this is spectacularly jaded.

    Someone who only works is unlikely to be happy at university. The college throws loads of money at the union and clubs and societies to encourage people to socialise. The college volunteering centre encourages volunteering with the college as it is known how useful this is in life. The humanities department allow you to study topics to broaden your base as a person.

    I have no idea where your opinions come from beetroot roots, but if you're an imperial student you might want to try leaving your room and experiencing the rest of the college life.
