    I submitted my form last week!!!! :-(

    Anyway, you said you wanted to know our comments about the UCAS system - I hate it. It has caused me so much stress, and I think it has played a big part in my recent 'breakdown' (see the health forum for more details).

    im applying electronically, and i think its really cool the way its set out, you have to enter all the details otherwise it doesn't let you continue.

    Didn't find the form to bad. The only thing was as i'm doing a National Diploma in Computing all the modules i do have such long bloody names which is a pain when it comes to writing it on the UCAS form.

    My bf is doing that @ the mo & he hates it. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif"&gt; He's getting really stressed about it all. He ain't even picked his final choice of courses yet & he's only just done his 1st draft of his personal statement!! <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/eek.gif"&gt;

    I've got a new take on the stress of UCAS forms. One of the main teachers at school who was dealing with them died of a heart attack on monday, the day of the first deadline. He was such a great bloke and will be sadly missed.

    sorry im ramblin on a bit here. lol. my tutor was gonna be... dammit i cant remember his name, but it was dr something (apparently hes sexist n don't like girls lol). i met him and went on the open day and everythin. its a bit weird wen u think about it, because if i had gone i would have a whole different circle of friends, probably wouldn't be applying for sociology at uni and would b doin different subjects and prob gettin diff results!!! n my mates sis went there but shes gone to uni now. i actually know quite a few ppl. i was gonna do eng lit, bio, german and geography, but now @ my school i am doing eng lit, sociology, geography and i got an AS in biology.
