    Yes, the Lakeside campus is enormous! But the food are all very expensive with lots of branded restaurants there (except food court maybe), and Broad Walk with lots of shops (there's even a Apple shop there, selling Apple products at student prices).

    I've got all my acknowledgement emails few weeks ago.

    yeah Apple store. Heard that they are selling Macbook Pro to students at RM3499, cheaper than normal price of RM3699.

    I think mine took around 2 weeks for all the universities to respond, Cambridge was the earliest followed up by Heriot-Watt, Warwick, LSE and Cass.

    there's a change of plans mate. Initially i said i was going for Keele, Kingston, Kent, Heriot Watt and East Anglia.. Luckily i double checked and found out that Keele and Kingston dont offer any exemptions !! Phew !! I was SO close to paying for applications !! Guess i will replace them both with Cass and Southampton..

    Apply for first year man! You would not want to go for unnecessary foundation year unless you are rich.
