    How long do you get to confirm the accommodation? Im pretty sure you can pay it in 2 lots or something? I thought i'd read you didn't have to pay it as a block sum all at once

    Erm well they emailed me on Thursday offering me a room in the Cutty sark and said I had until Monday (yesterday) to accept the offer and pay the full deposit of £400 otherwise they would automatically deduct the offer from me.
    It might depend on which accommodation you've applied for though I'm not entirely sure!

    Ooh right okay, well fingers crossed i'll get my accommodation with my offer if i get one. I looked up on the site and the course is available already for clearing which surely must mean there's spaces left over which I'm hoping is good for me! haha. Do you have any idea how many spaces there are on the course? I tried to find out but couldn't see anything

    You should do! Haha well fingers crossed I'm sure you'll do fine what grades do you have to get?
    Erm I'm not entirely sure. Although I do know that there are basically two courses of very similar content we have our course and then we have just the criminology course, so I think there would be quite a lot of spaces considering there is 2 of basically the same thing
