    Do you have any idea about the demand for places at Lincoln uni this year? As in, if you miss your grades by a little bit, do you stand a chance?
    ive heard that the demand for lincoln has increased from last year, but i has done every year for the past few because of the growth speed of the uni,
    its not a very old university and is gaining its prestige quite rapidly,

    however 2 years ago, i got onto my course which requred CCC with CEE and a D in As,

    so i think it depends on the course.

    what are you looking to study and i can let you know if it is a higher demand course at lincoln x

    Well basically the course I applied for is Journalism, I did the I.B and got 24 points, the offer was for 25 points. (Basically translates to 20ucas points off) but I wouldn't mind doing a number of Journalism courses at lincoln as I've seen there are a few. So was wondering if there is no space on the course I applied for, what are my chances on being allowed on a related course? I just really want to go to Lincoln, it's perfect for everything I need from a uni. Thanks for your help

    if you are only 20 points off then you will likeley be accepted, and so i dont think you have much to worry about,
    however journalism is quite a popular course, however as you said theyre are a lot of variations with studying extra things with it,

    i wouldnt worry too much as lincoln seem to be quite leanient with the grades, and as long as you have the right gradses in the relevant things for it then you should be okay,

    good luck, because lincoln is an amazing uni and you will enjoy every second when your there x

    Thankyou I have plenty of experience, the interview went really well, my personal statement was good and the grade I dropped was in French. So I really, reeeeally hope so! I think I'll ring them tomorrow and suggest I wouldn't mind a course swap if needs be to go there. Thanks a lot for your help!! x

    I'm looking forward to freshers and I'm going to be a second year :laugh: it was awesome last year even though we stupidly took recommendations off a flat mate and went to the rather **** places. What I say to do it Engine for most of it, Possibly Woohoo for monday or Thursday as during the year this year it was awesome, Superbull at Pulse on Friday (messy as hell but rather awesome) and go to playzone if you can as it's awesome. Though just make sure a fat guy doesn't land on you after coming down the slide too soon after you :unimpressed:

    Hello and welcome! What course will you be doing?

    Blackboard is the online learning environment that Lincoln Uni use, like moodle etc, and I just got my login details! There's nothing on there about Psych though at the moment

    S'alreete, I'm not sure. None of my teachers seemed too bothered tbh, I got enough points for my insurance so I guess I'm not top priority. And I think I was in shock, so I never asked.

    Journalism, the staff were really nice and said it's not just down to grades, but experience, personal statement and whether or not you're commited to the university; so who knows. I know there are a range of different courses with Journalism so if there are spaces on any I'd gladly take it. Desperate to get to Lincoln
