    The Dell Latitude range is good though, and of course, IBM ThinkPads are very good if you have the money to spend.

    No point worrying about it now. Although I do feel your panic I had the same, I actually emailed my uni the week before asking in advance if I could transfer to the biology faculty.:woo:
    Oh dear. Bad times I guess. :p: But a brilliant idea nontheless. :ninja:

    I think I'm going to have to start working on a draft of my pleading email too should I fail to meet my offer. :ninja:

    Why couldn't Barts remain AAB for one more year? :p:

    thats ok bio and chem aren't as hard as physics IMO Blegh, stop chatting exams and start thinking of the mad nights out your gonna have come Sept.

    I'm pretty sure my first day (in the middle of this year's freshers) is shadowing a junior doctor around a hospital...:rolleyes:

    I'd honestly like to but its quite hard to plan ahead because I don't want to be disappointed on results day. I'm saving all my hype for the night of the 20th (if I do meet my offer)
    :danceboy:

    Shame you'd be shadowing though. Excuse my ignorance, but i thought 2nd year students and above didn't have lectures/shadow till after freshers because they'd be helping organise stuff for freshers itself.

    Only if you apply to be a freshers helper and so far I haven't gotten any email from the med school about helping out Last year our term started in the middle of freshers week so I didn't really expect it to change this year! I've already had a look at what we're doing this year and they really are throwing us in the deep end

    Oh dear. Doesn't sound too great. But hopefully its not as bad as you're imagining it to be. And I'm assuming that means less time in the lecture halls and more time doing something a bit more hands-on albeit shadowing junior doctors who probably think they own the world! :p:

    Anyway, I'm off to bed now. I'm dropping dead as I'm typing this out. :p:

    i think we should start a group for those who are screwed beyond belief for their grades.

    20th august will be the biggest upset of my life. it's actually quite funny..

    i'm such a fool for putting another AAB offer as insurance! i should have gone with biomed

    I'm not a fan of macs personally, and I think you'd have to try hard to get a virus on windows :p: I mean, unless you visit dodgy sites :p:

    For uni, ideally, I'd get a nice and small netbook.
    for me my macbook is my personal record. ive had it over a year and it hasnt crashed once.

    dells we've only had as a desktop.. that too was soon infected with computer diseases :moon:

    :sigh:
    i never did anything dodgy .....

    definitely agree with you about the viruses- antivirus software used to be a proper drain on a laptops meagre resources but these days with decent multicore processors and a healthy chunk of RAM on most laptops its not a massive problem and you barely need it anyway if you're staying on safer mainstream sites.:yes:

    I was tempted to get a netbook with my summer wages but instead i think i'm gonna wait and see if anything comes of the itablet :coma:

    You are NOT screwed... I mean, I haven't done the maths, but you'd have to get like straight C grades in every A2 module or summit to be screwed.

    it was that exact thought which made me flunk my A2s. i was so laid back thinking i have a good AS back up that i didn't even realise how little revision i was actually putting in for A2s!

    i just can't wait to get results day over with...i hate it so much!

    Iso, i think TTP is right. You needed like straight Cs (if not less) didn't you, so you should be sorted anyway.

    And those dreadful physics exams won't make a difference as they weren't part of you offer. Speaking of which, some MI5 type hacker :ninja: has hacked into the Edexcel system and posted up the markschemes which has frightened me even more. :afraid: Think I should have made the C that Barts were asking for though but it could be close.

    I've officially reached panic moade now. :headfire:

    I see, well, no point trying to fix it unless the computer is actually worth anything, because fixing it tends to cost loads. Lazy buggers deliberately take longer than they need to in order to fix it... and really, all they do, like anyone does, is go through trial and error.

    Do you play games or anything on your computer/laptop?? What I find is that most people pay loads for a new laptop for uni with very high specs, when in fact they don't need that high specs and the price just falls rapidly through the year.
    I've had this computer for about five years now so yeah, it's probably not worth the hassle.

    I am not much of a PC gamer either. I'm still leaning towards getting a MacBook though! :p:
