The social aspect of Oxford will be good as well, it has loads of quirky little traditions just like I get at St Andrews. The funniest thing will be the wearing of an academic gown, at St Andrews we are the only scottish place that has everyday undergrad gowns, and I understand Oxford has the same sort of thing, though you wear them a lot more!

Nice results man. A couple of questions: what units are you taking in applied maths? Also, why are you doing an English exam in philosophy? Finally, where/what are you planning on doing at uni? (Yes I am rather inquisitive, but just because you are taking similar stuff to me smile.gif)

Well done, particularly on getting a band 1 A for Higher English (no easy feat). I found out today that my school is appealing for my maths grade to be upgraded...

Thanks, I was quite surprised about the band 1 in English. There are two people who are much better than me at English (not modesty here, just truthfulness) in my class who got band 5 Cs and one person who is terrible at English and got a band 2 A ohmy.gif There seems to have been something strange going on, but the exam went well for me so I'm saying to myself that I merited my grade, and that the marker was not stoned when he was marking my paper tongue.gif

Good luck with your appeal, of course a B is an excellent grade but it would be nice for you to get up to an A. With strong marks in your prelim I imagine you have a good chance of getting it.

Since I can't be bothered PMing you, I'll just mention it in here. The notes I think are not scholar (we have little scholar books already, so I don't think these notes will be scholar aswell). We get two different teachers for maths, and both have said that they will give us notes for the stuff we've covered next week, so you should have some notes on the product rule, quotient rule, binomial theorem and partial fractions next week smile.gif

You too ad absurdum, awesome results there. Em, yeh im doing the Mechanics Units of the Applied Maths course. Not really sure about universities. I think that id try for Strathclyde if i was going to a Scottish uni, but i was thinking of trying for Imperial College London, or Durham, or Loughborough or somewhere like that. Looking to do mechanical engineering, but at Imperial they say they want three As at A-level, so id need all As to get in. What a nightmare! What about you?

Yeh and the reason im doing an AS in philosophy is because the teacher doesn't like the Higher course (thinks it too easy) and has made everyone do the tougher course. Not cool.

Cool, that's what I'm doing in applied maths aswell (and what most people seem to do). Nice choice in universities, I was going to try for Imperial aswell but I've decided not to because I couldn't afford to live in London. Durham's a nice little place though by the looks of it, and has a very good reputation for the maths/physics stuff apparently. Yeah, unfortunately the top English unis seem bent on driving final year students crazy with stress, but on the bright side you should get an unconditional offer from a Scottish uni based on your grades. I'm going to do maths with physics, not really sure of where yet, but I know that I'm going to apply for Cambridge (might aswell, if I don't get in it's no big deal, if I do I think I would really enjoy it), Durham (for the reasons previously mentioned) and St. Andrews (my chemistry teacher told me the ratio of females to males is 2:1, I'm not sure I believe him but it did stir my interest in the uni).

That is quite nasty actually tongue.gif Still, philosophy is one of those things were difficulty isn't really an issue if you do enjoy it. Unfortunately our school doesn't offer it and I'd say that whilst I love some philosophy (Nietzsche, Kant) I wouldn't be able to handle all the Plato without help from a teacher, so I've deceided not to attempt it. Anyway, hope you enjoy the course as it does sound interesting.

2. Did you meet your expectations: Did better than I thought I would.

4. What are you plans now? Gap year, then medicine at Glasgow starting 2007

5. How do you plan on celebrating? I was in Canada when the results came out, so I missed any celebration. Ah well, being in Ottawa when the results come out is a bit more original than getting pissed down the woods tongue.gif
