The Sanctuary

Recommended Posts

Well, it's a six-week course on Saturdays at 9 in the morning, it's at Sholing University and is for able children, and is based around Science and Maths.

Awesome! Sounds like you're setting yourself up for a great academic career. Do you get university credits for it?

(Also, I think I liked your av better without the light rays.)

Yeah, I was in one of my odd stages when I posted this thread. The translation is "The Ownful Board of Happiness". Any ideas for new names?

Do you get university credits for it?
1) I don't even know what you're talking about.

Our equivalent would be UCAS points, although I'm doubtful you would get them for the activity you are doing, as these points are only gained via post-GCSE qualifications. However, mentioning this participation on your application may go much further than you think; this shows dedication and wilfulness to further your education.

Some universities accept these points rather than/as alternatives to/as well as the hard-core grades. Universities ask for certain grades; Oxford, for example, require three A grades at A-level or equivalent, some on the other hand require different combinations dependant on applied course and university. Now, with the universities which accept UCAS points it may be easier to gain entrance, for instance:

A uni requires for your course B-B-C at A-level or a minimum of 280 points. Unfortunately you only achieve C-C-A, therefore failing the entry requirements (as you have two C grades), but the equivalent points for your grades place you at the minimum score of 280 and legible for entry. See? You failed but can still apply.

Anyway, that's what I've been told. And the tangent is back on topic.

By the way, yes, david was right, 'pray tell' is rather archaic for 'please, tell' or 'please elaborate'.

EDITED: I can't type or string a sentence together lately. Not cool. Removed unnecessary words.

Sanctuary, eh? When I first saw this I thought: "What da :? ? What thread made 12 pages in one day? I gotta check this out :) !" at which point, I realized exactly what this was :lol:

No need to apologise, you didn't know. Plus, it's not like 'UCAS points' has any literary likeness to 'college credits'. It's a bit like the Pleasantville Effect - who would think to search for that when wanting to achieve that result...

:D

Me, but I've seen the movie...but I get your point. :-)

No, I was really more apologi(z/s)ing to Rubrica, whose comment confused me greatly.

Program finished...secret message decrypted! :D

For a job application I had to decrypt a secret message...turns out it was 128-bit instead of 192...sigh...I'm just happy I figured it out before the end of this week... :D

I feel giddy... :?
