I’m now officially a postgrad – and I only had to queue for about an hour into the bargain. I thought I was being smart too. I decided to go in for registration opening at 9.15 this morning. After all, what right-minded student is up at that time during freshers’ week? Oh how wrong I was! Massive queues first thing so headed to New College for a coffee after being advised to come back maybe at 3pm when it might be quieter. Couldn’t really hang around until then so headed back to Adam House just before 11am, queued, paid my fees, got a new card, verified attendance and was back in Rainy Hall at New College just after noon for lunch. I’ve even got my card validated for 24hr entry to the postgrad study area – like I’ll be using that (well, maybe I might as deadlines loom).
