A friendly disclaimer: QMUL’s School of Geography wasn’t my first choice. You see, I didn’t apply to Queen Mary in the traditional way – I was a late applicant that came via clearing. So, on results day in 2015, the majority of students in my year group logged onto UCAS to find the message ‘congratulations, … Continue reading Beth’s 2015 Results Day
In order to whet your taste buds for all things freshers related, I thought it might be a good idea to tell you of my own freshers tale some two years ago… A higgledy-piggeldy mix of emotions; overwhelming excitement and belly-turning nervousness simultaneously occurring in a bi-polar-like fashion, is probably the best and only way … Continue reading My Freshers Tale

I’m a type-A neurotic, who always places a huge … Continue reading Lucy’s Results Day – Believe It Or Not, The Girl Is Alright.
