    I'm just wondering if anyone knows that after results come out would it be possible to ring up accommodation and try and change?
    Always worth a try. The accomodation people have been very nice both times i've given them a call.

    Being optimistic I made my firm choice Kent (Canterbury), they asked for AAB at A2, thought that my ABB at AS would be sufficient, the A2 exams hit hard, ha!

    Probably going to NTU, doing LLB Law, only just figured out I need 300ucas points as a pose to my initial 320ucas offer, quite a relief! Should really start making accomodation plans soon...

    Anyone starting Interior Architecture??

    I'm Steph and I've just finished my 1st year at NTU doing this course and my year have basically decided to set up a society that I'll be president of aimed at helping all you freshers doing this course (and similar ones) cos we know how daunting/confusing it all is and we wished we had students that could've given us some guidance especially in 1st term! we're gunna set up a group on facebook and all that stuff over summer but for now feel free to add me on facebook 'Steph Singer' if you have any questions

    From what i've heard, NTU is quite leniant when it comes to letting people in if they're only a few points off, may vary per course but I'm not guaranteed to get in, reckon it's gonna be cool though! you going abroad for your third year?

    well that's not so bad then... I should be okay but i'm just so bad with exams! what offer did you get from NTU? yeah i'll be going abroad, will you be going at all?

    Well it's just a rumour anyway, i'm terrible with exams too! it was 260 UCAS points from any subject, with a minimum of 180 for at least two, i'be got an A for definite in Art, so all I need is a C and a D in my other subjects - I'm starting to doubt i'll get that ! Well i'm quite confused on if I can go. On the website it says how students taking the modern languages degree can spend a year abroad, well i'm doing chinese (mandarin) joint honours with Global studies, so hopefully I can. My UCAS application says i'm only doing a 3 year course though .. so once again i'm not sure. Trent does have partner Uni's in China and i'd friggin' love to go - just hope it's available to me

    Anyone know how lenient NTU are?
    I'm studying (hopefully) business management & entrepreneurship, and need BBC. I'm certain I can get BCC, but I'm really not sure how my history exam has gone or what I got in my coursework, so I can't even roughly guess if I'll get a B or not

    Yeah, I found this group of like 40 people, some being future residents and others current; and I found two people in my flat ;D and the current people living there have put like a billion photos of the accomodation up and it actually looks awesome, and there's a key to the roof so rooftop gatherings will be a must

    So excited ahaha, literally gonna be so crushed if I don't get in!

    Have you found anymore people you're living with?
    Cool

    I found some, not many lol

    I really have no clue ha, I did work hard, but the exam questions were so weirdly worded I really don't even have an inkling if I've done well or bad
    Will quite happily fall into a pit of depression if I don't get my grades ahaha, 'cos I can't afford to go next year, with the new fees and everything, I don't think.

    Yeah, I think they're going up to between 6-9k, I'm not really sure

    And yes, it was but lace market is an area, not a market I think, not entirely sure though ahaha; it's like in a "trendy/studenty area" filled with little bars/pubs and weird little boutiques, or so I'm told... why?

    You're so lucky ;D if I don't get my grades I've decided I'm not going to cry about it, I'll man up, retake what I need to and get in next year. Will be pretty crushed, but there'll be no point in crying over spilt milk. Although I'm talking like I think I won't get in now haha, when I don't know!

    Aww, that's so cute ahaha :') I'm sure there will be markets and stuff you can get vegetables from I'm not really suuuure, sorry! Just going by what my friend said (she lives in notts)

    Dude, you've already got an A don't worry! You WILL get in haha I have faith! Your course sounds well interesting (:

    Hopefully business management & entrepreneurship, providing I get my grades - BBC - I know I'll get BC, but whether or not I'll get my second B that's required remains to be seen I so so so so want to go to NTU haha, hate feeling so unsure.

    There is a market place within Victoria Centre on the top floor. There are food stalls in there as well as clothes etc. There are fruit and veg ones in the main bit, and then the meat and fish ones are in an almost seperate room towards the back.

    awh, i'm sure you're going to be fine wow! well done in with the A in art! that's going to help you quite a bit. sounds like we've got the same offer so i guess i'm in the same boat as you. i've got an exam tomorrow - majorly nervous!
    just wondering if you know at all, but, with language courses, does NTU accpet BTEC?
