It's conditional, but still, :D
Anyone else here been to Queens?
but well done! :D
brooklyn, Manhattan etc?
Anyway, well in! I finished my personal statement today, and as I predicted, I sound like a total tool.
Belfast. I'm adventurous...
Seriously though, I went to the Open Day and fell in love with the place.
My personal statement was hilarious. I used so many big words to cover up my lack of actual achievements. It was fun!
i got in 2 characters short of the limit!
Should I bother applying to trinity? Ive heard its good and I can do it outside of UCAS... and the entry requirements are surprisingly low.
I applied to
I'll probably send it away on monday. Cant wait to get it over with.
You applied to three out of five of the same places as me, you massive copycat.
And yeah, apply to Trinity. You have to pay a registration fee, but it's worth it just to have extra choice really. And you don't need to do all that personal statemtent rubbish either. Or interviews. Goddamn interviews.
Although I applied to all those places, it looks pretty certain im gonna go to edinburgh. To do french+philosophy. Not physics. WOO!
the major, that is
the course is listen under philosophy and french, and my statement is written for philosophy, so I hope its mostly philosophy
Durham too, and Coleraine.
but YAY, COME TO MANCHESTER
about statements: Is it 3000 characters with spaces or 4000 characters with spaces? I should probably get on with applying but all this route A route B business for art is rather confusing...I don't know where to apply for each route, some only do route b, some only offer a tiny amount of places through route a...for route b the choices have to be in preferences etc. etc.
Heads down and get the requirements and you'll be well happy!
I'm currently on 1 A and 2 B's, from AS.
This year is way tougher than last year though, so I'm definitely not counting my chickens...
My brother's at Queens at the moment.
What did you get a place for?
Sociology and Politics. Gonna do a major-minor combo.
My brother is doing Politics and French.
and tell me to fuck off
and it will ruin my life
and ill probably end up working in telesales forever :(
apparently MMU art staff are lovely and they have good facilities. I didn't apply there because I thought they'd be horrible but it didn't matter because my work got trashed at Birmingham instead.
how did birmingham trash your work? whats it like?
At my interview there was several different interviewers who you got was random. At the time my work was colourful mixed media and I was pretty pleased with my protfolio (but bricking it). Anyway the man I ended up with hated my stuff he flicked through the protfolio with a look of total distgust and didnt even ask me what my work was about/inspired by. I was crushed.
Now Im at Salford where at my interview the interviewer asked me loads of questions and took an interest in my stuff even though she's a painter.
I've done loads of different stuff in my first year,Currently I'm doing paper cutouts they look like this
Best of luck with your exams too.
That's still a major relief, even if it's conditional.
