    On my timetable it says that I'll be taking a maths assessment during freshers, does anyone know what it will consist of so I can revise specific topics ?

    Q) Does the buddy scheme pair you up with someone on your course but in the latter years or just any
    regular student from any course?

    Nah, 50-55 mins is the most I'd consider travelling while still living at home.
    I had to travel 45-50 mins to college so +5 more mins shouldn't make a difference, though I may eat my words in the future. :lol:

    Just looked at the timetable hours over the 3 years for my degree and I'm in Mon-Fri 9am-5pm with the occasional 9am-5:30pm. :bawling: Have you checked your timetable rough idea of how many days/hours you'll be at uni for the week? I would have :heart: to finish at 4pm. That's awesome! I'm just joining my subject -> Physics Society, Anime society and the gym. I doubt I'll be able to juggle anything else esp the time spent commuting back & forth. :sad:
    Hey, noticed you will be commuting so will I, wondering how you were gonna get home after freshers events because the trains will close after a certain time ://

    I'm not planning on staying out extremely late during freshers, that's all.

    For anyone studying biochemistry or chemistry or any lab based degree, will you be purchasing you're own lab coat?
    I know they provide it but it's nice to have you're own

    Yep, from what I know. Did you get your official timetable yet, or is everyone talking about the Welcome Week timetable?

    I made a error in my earlier post. Apparently, freshers week is 16th-30th Sep
    and welcome week is 19th-23rd Sep.

    No I did not. I believe you'll get sometime during welcome week when you choose your optional modules etc.

    Slightly off topic buuut what exactly are the documents we need to print out for accommodation and enrolment? I know it's the licence agreement / accommodation acceptance letter, and maybe another one / two?

    Hey. Can I ask you a few questions?

    Does everyone basically line up in the centre and wait to be called?

    When people are called to enrol, are they literally next to eachother so you can hear eachother talking?

    How long did it take you?

    Thanks lol

    Did anyone need to take GCSE certificates?

    It isn't listed on the pre-enrolment certificate, but it's listed on the website as an academic qualification you need to bring, but unfortunately my school is really rubbish at handing out certificates. Despite continuing on in their sixth form for 2 years, they never thought to hand me my GCSE certificates, and I emailed them almost 2 weeks ago asking for them and the still haven't replied.

    I do have my GCSE results slip, but if it's required to bring along the certificates I will have to invade the school on monday and demand them to give it to me.

    I would be forever grateful if someone clears this up for me

    Yep lool

    Noo, it's like going into primark and you line up and you wait for each customer to be called by the cashier.
    Hope that's a good analogy lol

    When people are called to enrol, are they literally next to eachother so you can hear eachother talking?

    Yeah you would hear them talking but I didn't take any notice of anyone else's conversation as I started a conversation with someone in front of me

    How long did it take you?

    Waiting in the line was the longest bit
    So I probably had to wait for 20 minutes
    And the enrolment and taking student ID pictures took about 10-15 minutes all together


    You're welcome
