    I received my NTU today, by phoning up! Those still waiting, I wouldn't hang about because I can't see them sending the ID's out as the lovely chap on the phone seemed as if he has had the same phone call many other times. The number I rung was 0115 848 4200

    Just firmed NTU! The only strange thing is I have all my results and have the IT related subject as an a level (required for my course); yet I only have a conditional offer? Any ideas on this?

    Another dilemma I now have is where to stay! My lectures etc are on the Clifton Campus but I love the city! Anyone know what the new halls are like?! Need help people..

    if you still have any exams to take i think they will give you a conditional no matter what

    im no expert tho

    im also staying in new halls they have a bar and that at clifton and getting into the city is like easy peasy with the unilink bus which sops outside the gym at the campus its also a really nice campus =) but then some people are more for the city and not lazy enough to want to get up no earlyer than ten minutes before class so... its pros and cons

    make a list if it helps

    Thanks for the advice !
    Ah thing is, I'm 22, done my exams like 4 years ago ha so I can't work it out, I guess I'll have to ring them tomorrow and find out?

    Just spoke with a few friends that went to NTU and they said pretty similar to you. I think I'll just go for the new halls at Clifton, couldn't see my getting up early enough if I was in the city really!

    You know much about the new halls, or seen what they might end up looking like?

    Yeh the 'new' factor does draw me to it above the others. Wasn't impressed with Peverell or however you spell it to be honest.

    i too am studying on clifton but i have decided to stay in the city.

    only pros i can think of clifton are

    1. get more sleep
    2. easy to get to lectures
    3. bar on site
    4. sports hall on site.
    5. all the sports teams train at clifton.
    6. only 15mins to get to the city centre.

    even with all this being said i feel like i'll have more of a fun time in one of the city accommodations tbh. Peverell did seem a little boring, but it would seem everybody would know each other etc. and the fact that i can go to the club and walk back home is pretty cool

    the only downside i can think of peverell seeming to look/be boring during the day.

    i feel like i'll miss all the action if i was living on peverell tbh. although when i went to the open day, peverell seemed like it was for me, but i don't want to take the risk of having a slighting boring year as a fresher. i love the idea of having 12-13 people sharing a kitchen and 24 to a common room(sandby), i think it'll increase my chances of meeting fun people(not to sound shallow or anything)

    i wish i went to visit the city accommodation though, i'm booking the city accommodation based on sheer rumors lol

    They should be made aware of them from the exam boards/your college I cant remember who but they will know I think. you then log on to track and sort stuff out there
