    What time is your appointment tomorrow?
    9.30. I haven't finished unpacking yet, though, so I'm going to scoot round and do that first.

    We have a tour of Cambridge with our college families, where we buy our gowns. Then I think I have to go to a thing to find out more about the natural science part(s) of my course. In the evening, there's a meeting ('squash') for people interested in taking up rowing which I'm planning on going to. Then probably an early night/watching a DVD because most people are headed off for a club, but I'm not 18 yet.

    You could go to the club with your new friends, I bet they would let you in since it's freshers week and stuff. How's your hangover? :p:

    I'm getting on great, my workload is pretty high so far just because I decided to be awkward and do lots of stuff but i'm enjoying it which is good! I've taken up debating, which is an awful lot of fun. I met an amazing girl also, so my singledom didn't last too long which is a plus! Meeting her parents today :eek3:

    Yeah basically I absolutely love the whole ethos of uni, being independent, eccentric professors etc

    I hope you enjoy Freshers week! (and beyond) Tell us how you get on

    If you sit say, 2 NABs and fail the 3rd but pass the exam, and next year you do the 3rd nab...would you need to resit the exam too or would you get the overall award? :awesome:

    You'd still need to sit the exam. I think.

    According to my History teacher you'd do the exam and then in the following month or whatever you'd sit the NAB. Can't say how reliable his advice is.

    No - you don't.

    But you have to resit the NAB asap. And well before the current year's exam diet.

    Then you will get an amended certificate to show course and external assessment both passed.

    You can do that school too. You don't get the full higher just a pass at eh units so you can't really use it to get into uni. People at school usually did that if they got below 30% in the prelim.

    Possibly... but it didn't sound likely, from what the reps were saying. Hangover wasn't too bad - bit rough in the morning, but after breakfast and a wander around it was alright.

    Fantastic Workload's good - after all, you do actually want a degree at the end of it! I saw you'd met someone :ninja: hope it works out for you; good luck with the 'rents, though, haha. Eccentric professors sounds about right... a friend at Edinburgh claims his economics lecturer uses a light saber as a pointer in lectures.

    I thought most universities did? We just wear them more often (and Oxford more often still - they have to wear full academic dress for exams). I haven't sailed in ages, and I don't think I will be any time soon. Do you sail at home?

    I would point out, though, that there was nothing 'under age' about my drinking. The legal age for buying alcohol is 18 (with various exceptions, etc).

    Meh, you always call me by my first name (which i like btw, i feel computerised when im addressed by my username). I don't know yours and I always feel rude calling you 'TheUnbeliever,' but I guess you're keeping your true identity secret :p:


    Oooh, and when I was in Dundee, there was a shop called 'Pie Bob' :rofl: I couldn't stop laughing :p:

    How has everyone been in the brief 24 hours of my absence?
