Hi! This is the stalking page for 2015 Uniq applicants. Here is the discussion thread for the UNIQ Summer School 2015: [[1]]

Editing This Article

If you are confident with wiki editing, you may edit the page yourself to input your information. Do not feel obliged to enter your details or fill in all columns of the table.

IF YOU ARE APPLYING FOR A SUBJECT WHICH SOMEONE IS ALSO APPLYING FOR, POST YOUR INFORMATION COLUMN UNDER THEIRS. It makes it easier for users to navigate rather than scrolling through a huge jumble of names and grades.

About the ACORN value: Apparently UNIQ is using this as a factor in their decisions! The ACORN value is determined by postcode and compiles demographic data, social factors, population and consumer behaviour to give a number between 1 and 59 (with 1 being most affluent). You can sign up to find your value here: [[2]]

Thank you, and good luck!!
