    I got 5 A's but its still impossible to get an unconditional from Glasgow, they always offer conditionals to school leavers but hopefully if I get an offer it will be BCC in my advanced highers, which I could prob manage with a bit of effort!

    Is that for medicine? It really annoys me they don't do unconditionals when most places in Scotland dont for med. Not sure about whole PBL thing though - hope it is explained tomorrow at the open day.

    At school it is like "who isn't going to the Glasgow open day?", so I won't miss much this time (unlike last week when I went to Aberdeen and Dundee open days and had loads of work to do )

    soooo. Ha. What a coincidence. I think our one worked but we kept forgetting to put the yellow tip thing on the pipette. Which school were you, not like that would actually make much of a difference :p:

    hmmm, yeh, Glasgow gave me a conditional now that i think about it. Was only 1 B at higher level though. So i wouldnt think they would give you that much of a condition.

    Dont underestimate how easy it is to give up in 6th year. :yep:

    I keep reading Paedobear :sigh:
    Then it's worked.

    (Original post by acas13)
    I would look out for you, but I have no idea what you look like in person
    Haha, well if you see a timid boy with scruffy hair, a black leather shoulder bag and thick black D&G glasses, accompanied by his mother, it is probably me (or any number of people who may fit that somewhat generic description. I can't do with pictures online -- scared of Paedobears).

    Turriff. When you walk into the lab, at the wall opposite the door, slightly to the left. I was sitting at a table with a really tall guy from my school with glasses, and our biology head was small, white hair and glasses (man by the way ) And for the lectures we sat the first/second row of people on the left. You?
