    Sad to hear it mate, hope you make a full recovery...

    On a different note,did my oath the other day given all the details on how to get there etc but I've found some conflicting info, I have 3 different times of arrival one for between 10-2,11-3 and the last I think is 12-4 I think.. Can anyone clear this up for me?? It's for the 4th oct intake invade that actualy makes a difference.

    I would ask my careers advisor but it's the weekend :/

    Cheers all
