I simply cannot express my sheer gratitude for your help!
You have helped me 100% more than King's College London, if not more than even that -- i.e., if they can be viewed as doing nothing but being 100% unhelpful.
One day, I will go onto be a world-renown polymath, hopefully eclipsing Avicenna and Leonardo DaVinci, as impossible as that may appear to those without the necessary desire, ambition and drive to do so themselves, and when making my own humble contributions to humanity, which I hope to do so for 100% free for so far as I can afford to, I will make sure to note your help to me on this day ... I am eternally grateful.
Like King's College London, you had no need to help me, nor any personal benefit to gain. However, unlike them, and any potential other universities to which I have made an identical request to that which I made from you and who may reject it, you most graciously conferred.
The University of Manchester is ranked 12th in the United Kingdom (https://www.thecompleteuniversityguide.c...), and could not have been more generous with their knowledge, similar to the University of Cambridge (who make all of their past papers available on their website; accessible to all). King's College London is ranked 18th, and could not have been more selfish, despite the fact that I had told them that I am a student and that I would be using their questions solely for my own practise. I do hope that they take away something from this.
