My God, us A-level folks are REALLY getting screwed because being the last to get our results puts us WAY behind on the MyEd, Accom and registration pack etc lines. Gah! Why wont the 17th get here any quicker? Or for that matter, September ?
dont worry, international students are given priority in the accommodation allocation process (well, i hope so)...

Good Im glad to hear that. Coincidentally I did A2 Geography too (specification A) and the synoptic paper kicked my butt. Everything else was good though so i hope i still get that predicted A. How did your exams go ?

I started off AS Critical Thinking but my 64 year old professor was so boring and confused he put the 6 of us straight to sleep so we just dropped the course collectively about 4 months into it lol

The disability office is good at replying to my emails so tis not all bad with the uni correspondence. Just to check, your parents can provisionally accept your accommodation for you cant they? Im going away 2 days after results day and somehow i doubt that i will have had my accommodation offer through by then. The other thing is how long do we have to confirm our offer with UCAS and can it be done online?

i did urban environments and hazards in the synoptic paper, hopefully did well - im more concerned about the options paper, deserts were easy, but tourism questions were weird...still, i had a good coursework and need a C in A2 Geography to get an A overall - i'm more worried about history...

crtitical thinking was quite fun, I did like it, had a good teacher as well, but you were right to quit - i hate boring&confused teachers as well...

i don't know if anyone else has done this yet, but i added the "my accomodation" portal onto myed, and this monday, the message on it changed from "our records show that you have applied, but not yet been allocated accomodation" to "you have been allocated accomodation, a link to accept this accomodation will be posted shortly." I was SOOOO excited to see that, thinking that the link would be up later that day. But now it's wednesday and still no link!! I am an international student and applied to share a room at pollock halls. Oh and I sent my picture into myed MONTHS ago and mine isn't up yet. My last name starts with L (if we are still considering the alphabetical theory)

ummm let's see if i can remember...you log onto myed and then go to "customize" in the top right hand corner of the screen. Then you can search for the channel you want to add. I remember I had to look in a few different categories before i found it. It is called "my accomodation" and i just added it onto my "home" page. Tell me what info you get.
On the accomodation you had to pick whether you wanted single, single ensuite, or shared if you applied for pollock (or at least that's how i remember it.) I'm sharing a room to save money.
