A good stare at the website, a few unanswered phone calls and I concluded that the office was open only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Panic over. All I had to do was go there first thing this morning. So I did, arriving at 8:50am, 10 minutes before opening time and about 25 minutes before the office opened. I showed my email, the secretary checked everything and said that I'll get my convocation by the end of the week, the orals start on the 15th and the written exams around the 21st, I think.
Another fine mess I've gotten myself into!
Still, at the end of all this maybe I will be 100% Welsh, and British and French!
Now then, for a Frenchie surname, what should I ask for...
Or perhaps D'Avé?
