    I applied for Network computing BSc and Network computing BEng (basically the same thing), and I've received an offer for the BSc but not for the BEng for some reason - same grades but meh.

    The course i wanted has been withdrawn. I called and they said it was because a lack of funding, so I've had to apply again for the 3 year computer games programming course that they offer and now fund my first year tuition fees. Also applied to Cardiff and Southampton though for games development. Hopefully i'll get accepted somewhere even though I have a HND and not the UCAS points requirement.

    Yeah, last year they did a straight up MEng of Networking(cheaper for the student), but now they don't. I'm assuming it's because of lack of funding. Saying this, according to one of my teachers, they spend £9K/student/annum for network computing, so it's quite easy to see how they are under funded. Sadly, I'll have to do a masters now through money made(hopefully) from the placement year

    So lucky :O I'm not in extra since my original application was just for one choice and then I had to pay for the other 4 when the my original course was withdrawn, but I sent those other 4 choices on the 27th of March and haven't heard anything again.

    Just wondering if any of you have any idea about my offer. It says
    This offer is subject to you obtaining
    A minimum of 280 UCAS Tariff points including

    GCE A level
    240 points

    40 points may come from AS levels
    Does this mean that if I undershoot my 280 UCAS points from my 3 A2's that I can get upto 40 from an AS I've gotten in another subject to make up for it, or does it not work like that because of my 3 A2 levels? I've been told that they usually just take your 3 A Levels, just wondering if this is an exception to that general rule.

    280 points will usually be a BBC offer, or three C's at A2 and another C at AS level (240 + 40 = 280). I suppose in any case all the points from everything you do should be counted, ideally.

    Then again, this is not really relevant to me because I'm getting full A-Levels out of all 5 of my chosen subjects, plus any more I get from my graded music examinations and Extended Project. I have no AS levels 'cos I never dropped any subject before starting A2 - mind you, I am NOT recommending this to anyone else, especially with the subjects I have!!

    I'm glad I dropped one of my 4 AS's. Note everyone, A level Physics is F***ING HARD!!!

    Stafford has one in the middle of the courtyard of Stafford Court

    Stoke has one in bush house for people in standard accomodation. There is also one up at Clarice Cliff for people living in En-Suite Accomodation, there is one for those living in the Carlton Suites and Liberly Living accomodation too.

    Hey I'm also going to Staffs Uni in Sept to do Children's Nursing. I'm in my gap yr and so I have already got an unconditional offer from them which I accepted last July. Went to the Open Day there today, have you had a look around the campus yet?
