Some years they are, some years they aren't. I know someone who got 4 A*s and missed their step mark by 2 so got rejected

Thats uh, comforting... was that 2013 or 2010 where the STEP boundaries were really high due to it being an easy paper?

That is still unbelievably harsh, I hope this year the STEP 1 paper is insanely hard.

Does anybody who is doing Biomedical science know if there is the opportunity to switch to the integrated masters after the first year?
You can
You can also switch to any other of the Life Sciences, although other courses can't switch to Biomed (I think I heard that at the Warwick offer holders day, but I'm not 100% sure. May have been Surrey)

Awesome, thanks. I think that might have been at Surrey you heard it, because at the offer holders day one of the people there was saying how if you're not sure, it's best to do Biochemistry as you can switch into life science course with that.
Which course did you apply for?

Wherever I heard it, it was actually Biomedical Science that you could switch to any course from so maybe it was Warwick after all.
I'm applying for Biomed
Have you applied for accommodation

I've had a bit of a look, haven't completely decided. Warwick's accomodation seems very expensive
One issue is that I was looking at Claycroft a while back, it seemed good (£120, only sharing a bathroom with one other person) but they're no longer doing it this year for first years.
Lakeside also looks very good, but that seems a bit far away from the biosciences section of the university. I've had a look (online) at others, but still not fully decided. You?

I have no idea at all, I'm waiting till after exams to decide. I think I'll apply to one en suite, though definitely not Bluebell or I'll be scrounging for the rest of the year lol.
Apparently Rootes is really social but the kitchens are up to 19 people. That's almost a classroom
I'm making proximity a priority though, since even the close ones are kinda far for the Life Sciences campus.
Is Warwick your firm?

Is there any way to change accommodation preference order after you've submitted the application? I put Rootes as my first option because it was pretty cheap but I've changed my mind and it seems that I'm the sort of person that would prefer a flat style accommodation rather than halls.

Does it even matter what order I put my preferences in?

Things I don't want to share:
-Kitchen
-Toilet
-Shower
So yeah, pretty much everything.
If you don't share a kitchen it will be harder to make friends.

Join the club, I think about a half of students last year missed the offer but got in, I would assume somewhat but it all depends on how this years STEP paper will be :P
