    I live with just my mother and twin sister, my mum has bad eyesight so doesn't want to drive me to Bristol on move in day. Do you think it will be a struggle to the coach/ train from London. Is anyone else getting public transport to move in. Also potentially my sister could have the same move in day as me which means one of us will have to move in the day after move in day, do you think we will miss out of anything or does it not matter?

    And she's going to Leeds btw.

    1) Yes, lots of people wont be driven to Uni. Bus/train is fine but only take the bare minimum with you and go back home a few weeks into term to get the rest. Or you can get some heavier stuff couriered to you - look at Uni Baggage, DHL etc , it isnt as expensive as you'd think.

    2) If you are not arriving on your specified 'move in' day/time, then you need to contact Accom and tell them. Yes, you will miss out a bit - but nothing crucial, if you dont arrive then.

    Hi guys, I'm a 3rd year physicist at Bristol and wanted to wish all of you on here the best of luck for tomorrow! Whatever happens, you'll end up happy with the result (obviously that's a future at Bristol for everyone here).

    If there are any physics freshers lurking, I'm here to plug the Facebook page you'll be using for the next 3/4 years: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1607343019558317/

    Best of luck to you all!

    My offer for Economics with Study in Continental Europe was AAA including maths and I got A*AB (A* in econ, A in maths, and B in Spanish) and I got rejected. Is there any way to contact the university and ask them to reconsider?

    They wont reconsider.

    They have had your results since Saturday and made their decision days ago. No amount of pleading will make them change their minds. All places are now filled.

    Economics is a top course with a high grade requirement. For study in Europe you need an A grade language. You didnt get the grades they wanted. You will find another course in Clearing - or you can consider applying to other Unis in the autumn with a gap year. All is not lost, you will have a great 3 or 4 years at another Uni instead.
