    Got my offer for Ancaster today Not my most preferred room type. I got a private shared bathroom which was on the bottom of my preference list (asked for a ensuite first..). Does anyone know how long this corridor is? Is it unreasonable to be able to shower and quickly run to your room or will the bathroom be like.. 500 meters from my room at hte end of the floor?
    It won't be long at all. It will most likely be just next to you.

    Haha, we might be! Do you think they allocate the shared bathroom to be same sex? Or is that all just randomized too? Not that I mind, but if it was another girl, we could work out an agreement to leave flower and candy smelling shampoo in the shower I was a bit bummed not getting an ensuite or at the least, a shared ensuite but now I'm quite happy with it. Its an extra 150 pounds that I can spend on a pair of shoes or something haha
    All private shared are same sex.

    Really really like the uni and campus and my dad did his pHD there so he rates it highly!

    Hoping the rest of the year goes well grades wise, not too much longer to go so fingers crossed!

    Thinking of making nottingham my insurance choice but I'm not too sure yet!
    That's awesome congrats! I'm thinking of applying for the exact same course in September - may I ask what were your A2 predictions and do you have any idea what you want to do in the future?

    It depends how much you want to spend on your accommodation really, but I'd reccomend Nightingale because its got a good central location and all the rooms have double beds aha

    You can't choose catered halls, it's a random allocation system.

    My AS subjects are Maths, Chemistry, Psychology and Sociology.
    Entry requirements are AAB minimum at A-level, and a minimum grade A in Maths GCSE and grade B in English lang (but i got C in english!)

    I'm really suprised they have higher entry requirements for law than Oxford :eek:

    What AS subjects are you doing?
    Are you still applying despite getting a C in English?
    I want to do Economics, 2016 entry, and they require a B grade in English but i got a C

      Did anyone get a confirmation email when they accepted their Notts offer? I accepted it as an insurance weeks ago and haven't even received an email...

      I didn't get a confirmation email from Nottingham as such but the day after I firmed them they sent me an email talking about student accommodation saying that I could now apply for it. So I guess if you chose them as insurance you wouldn't get that email? It should be fine, I think.

      I've seen quite a few courses that let people in with one grade lower - Physics, MEng, Psychology, Finance - but there is no way of telling how many of those who missed their grades were let in.

      Notts firmer here, but at least I don't spend my time looking down a perfectly respectable institution. Surely, there are better ways to spend your time?

      Nope nothing better than to counter Notts trollers

      Notts are a face university not one that is built in true excellence. Just ask them queitly, nod nod wink wink and you'll get in. They always have spaces, usually I see them in clearing unless it's the years when they feel they are losing too much face
