Re: Problems with the Forum

It definitely seems to have fixed the problem here too! In the last few days every time I visit the forum it’s working whereas before it seemed to be broken nearly every time, so looks like the Russian bot was to blame :)

Problems with the Forum

I’ve noticed in the last week or so that the forum seems to be down a lot, or more often than not at least when I check the forum. Is everyone else having the same problem?

Re: How to improve academic on application

I cheat a little bit in my structuring of essays in exams in that I usually leave the introduction until last! So what I do is I’ll write a plan of the essay including roughly what I’ll talk about in each paragraph then I’ll start writing the introduction but leave a big space and continue with the ...
