  2. Do not plagiarise copyrighted material.
  3. Ensure the content of pages is safe for children.
  4. Do not vandalise pages.

General Disclaimer

The Student Room and its owners (henceforth "TSR") generally disclaim their liability regards this Wiki-thing. By using this wiki, you hereby agree that they have no liability for you for nothing whatsoever. This includes, but is not limited to, all things that potentially could be included.

Validity of Information

We all give you our stuff for free. Given that we are students of limited life experience, what is written could be either inaccurate or a product of opinions of teenagers. We don't see this as a problem, and neither should you. Don't take a place at UEA over Cambridge on the strength of a Wiki entry; obviously, we expect you to do some research yourselves first.

The TSR Wiki is NOT...

  • A source of medical advice.
  • A definitive guide.
  • Regularly reviewed.
  • Written entirely, or largely, by experts.
  • Unopinionated.

For complete rules on using TSR and for legal terms and conditions, please read the site rules and guidelines.
