    I've applied to Southampton's Marketing course and recieved a conditional offer of ABB (A slightly lower boundry than normal due to some of the voluntry work i'm involved in). I'm pretty sure i'll come out of this year with an A*BB or A*BC, you think they'll still accept me if i do get that latter (A*BC) or would they not be willing to becuase they already dropped the boundaries a bit?

    Also, whilst i'm pretty into the Advertising and Marketing scene (like reading and listening to business blogs, magazines and podcasts) I've never actually done anything business related before; the business teacher at my school was lazy AF so I avoided it like the plague. Can anyone recommend any books or videos or anything that might help? Thanks!

    I have a conditional offer for MSc Public Health but I have met the conditions of the offer. I have applied for accommodation, will I hear back about accommodation earlier than mid-august as I have already got a definite place on the course?

    Hi, I'm applying for 2017 entry to study Aeronautics and Astronautics. The government has changed the A level system this year as you know and I'm just wondering how much AS results will impact my application? A few of the exams didn't go as well as I would have expected this year especially physics, although I will be retaking the modules that didn't go to plan along with my A2 exams next year. Thanks, Alex.

    Hi - all accommodation offers are made between mid-August and early September, as this gives our Halls team time to allocate rooms for all new students that are based on their individual needs and preferences.

    Hi - your individual faculties can discuss these finer points with you, as we are unable to discuss individual cases in a public forum. Please visit our website and search for your course to find contact details for your faculty: http://www.southampton.ac.uk/.

    We hope this helps.

    They say Mechanical Engineering Beng requires an A*AA. Would they give me a conditional offer for AAA?

    I need to provide an organisation name for DBS checks, it doesn't say it on the website, and apparantely Southampton University isn't the organisation name... I'm so confused. I emailed and all I got was a copy and paste of the page on the website. Not helpful.
    The page was okay, it was the DBS who were being unhelpful. Hopefull we've sorted this in your thread.

    The BM6 programme entry requirements are BBC so absolutely!

    I'm on the course (in final year) so let me know if you have any questions.

    Interviews are based on personal statement which is marked on the non-academic entry requirements ( check the website ).

    Having BBC won't mean you're disadvantaged other those applying with higher grades either. As long as you meet the minimum, everyone is considered equally.

    Really? This is making me so hopeful. I want to take a gap year and try and apply for medicine with foundation year at Southampton (among some other universities that has similar requirements) and I need to know that I do actually have a chance.

    Hi,
    I received an offer for Maths with Computer Science in Clearing today, but looking at the course content for the Computer Science only programme, the latter appeals to me considerably more. How likely is it that I'll be able to switch to the programme of my choice once my offer is confirmed officially through UCAS?
    I'm also a little worried because I was told to inform my university of my decision by tonight but the hotline and admissions department seem to be closed. I was made a verbal offer and they took down my UCAS number but I haven't received any emails from Southampton.
    What should I do?

    Contact them before they put it on clearing and you accept it rather than tying to change it after.
    They might not have put it on yet. Call first thing.

    Go on the website for your course. It should be on there. otherwise google "southampton university term dates 2016/17".

    Once I have my offer confirmed on UCAS do I have to do anything else? All of my friends have had welcome letters/ accommodation allocations (from other universities), but I haven't received a welcome email or anything similar from Southampton. Have other people?

    I accepted my offer from Southampton for clearing this morning for chemistry and I haven't got an email either yet.
