    I'm not sure if this is a right place to ask, but I got this EU10N form for Student Finance from UCAS and I've got to choose where will I be studying, but Scotland is not there. Is it because there is some other form for Scottish unis (and I also applied to Cardiff so they sent me this thing), or what? I'm confused. Help?
    EU10N is a Student Finance Services form, they don't handle funding for Scottish Universities iirc. You need to contact SAAS.

    Hello everyone!

    My name is Lumaria and I am quite keen to attend the University of Aberdeen. Sadly, I'll be commencing in 2011 but hopefully the year will fly by. Does anyone know what the professors are like?



    Kind Regards,



    Lumaria

    Aah OK. I have an unconditional too so I just dropped out :p: . I e-mailed the uni today to notify and am just a little nervous they might tell me that they are retracting my offer because of this. I hope not anyway, I'll be firming as soon as I get they're reply .

    I was thinking of dropping out and then either volunteering all my free time (cause I haven't been able to do that recently) or work like mad. But then I thought, I cba with working, and I can do more volunteering over the evenings cause I won't need to worry much about revision etc.

    Haha.. I was thinking that too. Like telling ABDN that I've dropped out only to be told that the offer wan't valid because my circumstances had changed... :eek3:

    I have an unconditional and still not 100% sure...

    I'm probably about 72.9% sure Aberdeen is the right choice :p:

    But nah seriously, only you know deep down if it's the right place to go!

    I take it you're on about like the 'minor' system outside of main lectures? It's not compulsory right? In fact, I've never heard about it from ABDN.

    But I don't think I'm going to bother. Eng&History and Rowing is enough for me.

    What were you thinking of taking?

    Oh that makes sense. I knew St. Andrews' did something like that, I didn't know it was for the whole of Scotland.

    I'm not liking this..

    Edit: It turns out I was told I need to learn to read things properly instead of skimming through them.

    Edit2: Jeebuz. A whole booklet about the options and choices Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

    Ha, yeah, as the chap above said, you do 3 subjects in first and second year then you pick one to specialise in in third and fourth year. It's the same at every Scottish uni.

    I was thinking of something English or IR related but I'm not positive yet.

    I'm glad you mentioned this now.. I would have not even thought about this.. :eek: Am I the only one who was either idiotic enough to miss this, or didn't read the literature that was given to them, thinking that they had already read everything they needed :p:

    Now that I think about it, I like it. I was certain on literature and history, and politics seemed interesting too I wonder how this is going to work in terms of hours etc. It seems like a lot of stuff to be covering. :confused:
