    Hiya!

    yes it's normal to be asked about your GCSE's grades and proof. I'm in my second year now and last year they asked for photocopies to be sent it to prove you got the grades you said you did on your UCAS. Also as far as I'm aware yes your college/sixth form can change your reference I remember in my year it happening to someone and their offer being withdrawn but i would talk to your personal tutor about this before results and confirmation in August.

    I think I'm going to end up going Portsmouth this year. I got sent a little piece of card, with 4 different accommodation options on, in the post the other day. I think the Langstone flats would be best my first choice but I was wondering how far it is going to be from my lectures. I'm terribly late for everything in life so I don't want to be too far away. I'll be studying Computer Science if that makes any differents. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    I'm planning to go to Langstone too, I've been told throughout it's about 20 mins on the bus from the Uni buildings.

    For Comp Sci and based on your "terribly late" for everything issue.. James Watson would be the best bet as it's literally only a few roads away from where all your lectures will take place. So takes like 5 minutes or less to get to uni in the mornings...langstone is great (so ive heard)...but you do need a bus to get there and back etc.

    Langstone is a nice area but it really is out of reach of anything worth doing. Nothing is close to it. The main beaches, gunwarf, down town shops/clubs, albert road. All these things are ages away. If your in guildhall accomm its a little easier to be spontaneous because your no more than 15mins away from everything

    The Langstone bus runs up until just gone midnight to the uni buildings and takes like 15 mins, maybe 20.

    Walking is a bit of a mish ... Albert road is about 10/15 mins, Commerical road around 30 and gunwharf around 40. Asda around 20.

    It is a little bit out of the way but when you have the bus it doesnt make any difference and you do have an awesome time!

    PS. the 3am cab home only costs around £5 - EASILY worth it!
