    I will have had an ensuite every year (of a 4 year course) at Trinity. 1st year they send you a form which you can put your preferences on and if you write you'd like an ensuite in the box they'll most probably give you one. 2nd year it depends where you are in the ballot, which is random, but there will be ensuites left to pick for at least the first 100-odd people to pick. 3rd year there will definitely be ensuites available to pick from. If you get a 1st in 2nd year, you'll certainly be able to get an ensuite in 4th year. If you don't get a 1st in 2nd year you probably won't be able to get an ensuite in 4th year.

    Thanks very much! this is very useful and obviously this is for Trinity only, but do you know if the same options (like specifying ensuite for first year) apply to other colleges like Downing or st.John's for example?
    Also I would imagine not all colleges have the same proportion of ensuite rooms though.

    Thanks again!

    to be honest looking at the example paper on their website it doesn't look too bad as we have done a lot of similar questions in school. But having said that, this will be the first time anyone does it so it will be very difficult to judge how difficult it is. I think this is a good thing as it will probably mean that they will give more importance to the interview and they will probably interview anyway regardless of the test.

    I finally made up my mind and went for Downing. The main reason why is because all the reviews I found online were very positive so there doesn't seem to be anything negative that's too important. Plus location looks pretty awesome for engineering. What about you? What college did you choose? Have you already submitted your application?
