    Hi, do you know whether the internet connection at Rowancroft, James Owen Court and St Luke's is wireless, in other words, a wifi connection or is it wired.

    Thank you
    I want to know this as well

    And want to know if i need an ethernet cable or not..

    I think someone said that in Mews it was Wired, not sure about Rowancroft itself, probably wired to stop people hijacking it.

    So terrified about actually meeting my offer at the moment.

    I got AABC for my AS summer exams and managed to get an offer with peninsula this year and I know people who got all As and didnt get any offers, so I dont think its all about having straight As Although it has taken me lots of hard work this year to bring my grades up to straight As but it is doable!
    Heya if u dnt mind me asking wat med schools did u apply to and how many did u get offers from... thx

    Pretty sure everyone needs to use an ethernet cable...don't know anyone accessing resnet via wifi. (I was in Gilwell this year btw) It's actually very good and fast

    Hey, yeah I was wondering about the Internet as well - on the Plymouth accommodation website it says all HALLS use the university's network. I got offered accommodation at St. Teresa Court and was just wondering what they used, if not the same network (can't find the info on the accommodation page) - does anyone know if it's wifi there as well?

    Thanks

    This might help - if not there is an email address at the bottom to contact or ring the accommodation service (01752 588644 or email [email protected])They will tell you exactly what you need to know.

    Thanks a lot

    Also - I got my accommodation offer two days ago, but I can't accept it coz my UCAS hasn't changed to unconditional yet.. Got 5 days to accept, so I've emailed them but no reply as of yet - anyone else in the same boat as me? Everyone I know who's been offered accommodation got a letter that said their UCAS status had changed to unconditional first, before they got their offer..

    Hi, I have got a conditional offer from PCMD. I have already completed my A levels last year. I have sent them the certificates and the agreement etc.

    My offer is not changing to unconditional. Anyone in the same boat or anyone know why?

    Also, when do you have to do the CRB checks?
    Thats the same with me but I rang peninsual and they said that they had a bit of a back log with occupational health but when they heard from them it would change

    Yeah, I'm in the same situation - I've even got a room offer but I can't accept it because they haven't changed my status to unconditional.. They should be getting round to everyone soon. When I emailed them, they said that the status could change any time between now and 10:30am on 20th August..

    Hi, I done my A levels last year, although still holding conditional offer. Applied for accommondation in Exeter and still had no reply neither a change in UCAS offer to unconditional.

    Anyone in the same position.
    Have you sent them everything they required? If not, then it won't change buddy.

    Was your exam result sent to UCAS/PCMD automatically or did you post a certificate or something?

    I'm a bit confused about mine because I got my A in my Jan exam but everything is still conditional on UCAS :dontknow:
    The center I did the exam with messed up though and forgot to cash me in until end of May but still..

    Also does was your grade pending August on UCAS?
    Sorry for all the questions by the way
