I also still found a way between working/college work/college to find time to go out to class parties and stuff. Where there's a will there's a way!
And of course best of luck to anyone waiting on their results/offers

Does the timetable stay roughly the same every year? If so I might have a looksie at this year's one...
And I'm not worried about the age difference at all, sure half my friends were in my boat before me, and I'm tiny!
Im glad there are others in the same "Boat" as me - it makes me feel a little more confident about going back next year as a "n00b" most of my school friends, are finishing up, well the ones that done 3 year courses, so it makes me feel a little strange, though, i do not regret the route i took, i have experienced alot of stuff others wouldn't get to do at our age and i am all the better for it
- now i am fully ready to return to college, fresh, and eager to brush up on my tech skills and enjoy the social aspect to it aswell, as there hasn't been much of that at all for me over the past 2/3 years...
as i mentioned before, i work full-time, with HP, so ill be handing in my notice fairly soon - it would be nice to have some summer to enjoy
- i might return to my previous "part-time" job with the Hotel i used to work with last year, as it would be useful to have abit of extra cash, but the thoughts of returning to a place where i worked for four years, errm i just dont know about that
- i am hopefull that i get the grant though, so that will hopefully cover the fees etc. and it might just be enough to live off.
RE: The time table, for DT211, any one know where i can take a look at this years one, so i can see what its like?
