Maths. Lucky for me the nearest department to Girton is Maths. Does BA Law at Cambridge qualify you as a lawyer?
Well its exempts you from the Bar exam like the LLB. I've been told there's not much difference. I was totally against the Cambridge thing at first but I've warmed to it now

Wow Maths- I think I can just about manage one more year of it and thats it! lol

Ahem, you were the one boasting that you're College got the best A-level results in the country when it did in fact not and you completely misinterpreted a staistic. May I also ask about your IQ test, I presume it was a written test taken at MENSA?

Yes. About my college, nationally it has the best pass rate, i never once said it was the BEST if you want to get A's but i wouldnt doubt it either, i think 42% of the year gone by got all A's.

Hmm a Science, an Art and a Social Science. Looks like less of a wierd mix when you look at it like that. Huh, last June I had to take P1 and the three Politics papers on the same day, since I was the only one in my sixth form taking both Maths and Politics I had to lump it. Still, I did well in them all

I would have thought Oxbridge were like most unis regarding GCSEs, not treating them as a requirement seeing as you have the A-Levels to prove your ability. Some courses demand C grades in Maths and English at GCSEs though.

Hey you must have been on the same exam board as me cos I had a clash with Maths and Politics and they were going to keep me in isolation ... But I decided to leave P1 til this year because I have to do P2 and P3 aswell. You're one of the few people I've heard say they like Maths! lol
Good Luck with your Girton interview!

Well they did keep me in isolation for P1 which I did in the morning, then I did Politics 1 (a resit) in the middle session, then I was allowed into the main exam room for Politics 2 and 3. So technically I finished P1 before anyone else
Thanks, good luck to you too! Hope I see you there next year!

Best college, but not the best for A-levels. It is the 300-and-somethingth best for A-level results.
