    This is probably a stupid question, but how do you know how long a contract you need for accommodation?

    Did anyone with offers do the Manchester Access Programme? Still awaiting decisions for the course I have applied for and wonder if the fact that I did MAP will go in my favour.

    Didn't you do Decision Manchester?

    It will tend to count in your favour. They sink a lot of money into you as a MAP student, and you're good for the Access statistics that they have to show HEFCE, so to reject you would be the loss of an investment.

    However, if it's between you and another candidate who is much better than you, it's likely that the other candidate will be accepted.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I did Decision Manchester so knew in advance I would get an interview but was just curious if all depts would view my participation positively. Reassured to know that the whole university recognises value in the programme.

    Back to crossing my fingers now and thanks again.

    Hi there. I'm interested in taking up Law in the UK. I skimmed through the websites of several reputable universities, their entry requirement are usually 3 A-level and 1 AS subject. Unfortunately, I only take 3 subjects so maximum I can do is only 3 A-levels. Having been through 1/3 of my course already, it's too late to take up a 4th subject. Can anyone share if they got into reputable universities like LSE,UCL, Manchester or Warwick with UCAS with forecast only with 3 AS subject?

    Also, according to the website of University of Manchester, they did not specify that they need 3 A-level + 1 AS level. So does it mean they follow the norm or it's up to them. Can anyone share their experience if they have been in a similar situation as me?

    Do they do that? I thought the purpose of the interview was to determine your offer (i.e, what results you'll need to be accepted) and as a fall back if you just miss the mark. I may be wrong though!
